iOS 17 - What's coming this Spring?

The latest update for iOS will be available this Spring (or Autumn) and we can expect an even more intuitive and seamless user experience:

? Instant transcript of voicemails

In a meeting or don't want to wake your partner by listening to a voicemail? Now you’ll see a transcript of the message on your screen. Easy as!

? Personalised Contact Posters

Don't like the picture your friend has saved of you in your contact? The one that comes up every time you call them? Now you can change it!

With Personalised Contact Posters you can customise how you’ll look when calling people with whom you’ve shared your poster. Neat!

? Leave a Video or Audio FaceTime Message

Instead of just leaving a missed call. FaceTime will support audio and video messages. So even if the person doesn’t pick up you can share the moment in a 'videomail'; 'vidmail'; 'MotionMail'?.. I'm sure Apple will have a clever word for it.

? More FaceTime Enhancements – Reactions & Apple TV

An enhanced feature coming to FaceTime are more expressive reactions like:

  • Hearts
  • Balloons
  • Fireworks
  • Laser beams
  • Rain
  • and more

Also, a FaceTime call can now connect with AppleTV so you can chat to your loved ones right from your TV!

? Who doesn't love Stickers?

Messages will be getting a big sticker enhancement in iOS 17. This includes new emoji stickers and live stickers from subjects in photos.
You can also liven stickers up with effects. A sticker drawer is also going to be available to store them all neatly.

AirDrop & NameDrop for easier sharing

Sharing photos, videos and files across devices will get easier with AirDrop.
NameDrop is a quick way to share contact details. All you need to do is bring two iPhones together. It also works with an iPhone and Apple Watch. Oh, and music is included in the sharing fun! ? NameDrop is also how you’ll share that cool Contact Poster you made.

? Smarter Autocorrect & Dictation

YES PLEASE!! Who hasn’t cursed ? an autocorrect choice that makes you look bad? Apple feels your pain and is introducing smarter autocorrection. THANK YOU Apple!

Dictation is also getting an upgrade. It will use a new speech recognition model to improve its accuracy.

? StandBy glanceable screen mode

Apple wants your iPhone to be even more useful, even when it’s charging across the room. Introducing StandBy. This gives users a full-screen experience with information shown big on the screen.
You can choose from a range of helpful views like:

  • Clock styles
  • Favourite photos
  • Widgets
  • Live Activities
  • Siri
  • Incoming Calls

? New Mental Health Features in the Health App

Users can log daily moods and momentary emotions. The goal is to help people see what contributes to their state of mind and have easy access to depression and anxiety assessments.
Definitely not life changing upgrades but pretty cool, especially the enhanced Autocorrect feature, it's about time!!
