At the next WWDC 2023, an Apple developer conference that should confirm its date in the coming weeks, the presentation of the next big update for the iPhone: iOS 17. And precisely about this we have had fresh news recently.
It has been the prolific Mark Gurman who has spoken about this next version, which aims to be one of the most interesting in recent years. And all this despite the fact that a few months ago it was expected to be one of the most watered-down updates, so relevant changes in Apple’s planning are intuited.
An update that will be very “nice to have” on our iPhone
As we said, the next Apple update it seemed aimed at fixing bugs, optimizing performance, and little else. Looked like. And it is that there are several conditions for Apple that imply that iOS 17 should follow this line.
The first of them is that iOS 16, at least in its first versions, was not as polished as it should be and the errors were constant. However, other Apple projects also collided with the evolution of the iPhone software. See the Apple Reality Pro project for an example. Also the permissions to download apps from outside the App Store, something that Apple will have to allow shortly due to the new Digital Market Law.
However, Mark Gurman always seems to be very well positioned when it comes to Apple information. Thus, in his latest newsletter ‘Power On’ in Bloomberg advances that iOS 17 will include several of the features most desired by users. And although he did not throw more details, a wide range of possibilities opens up. Who knows if artificial intelligence will have its space or not.
So we were left wanting to know more. We do not know if Gurman has not delved too deeply into the matter due to a lack of key details about it or if he will address the issue again in the coming weeks. What seems evident is that “Dawn”, the code name of iOS 17, is already beginning to grab headlines. The countdown has begun and with this precedent we hope not to be disappointed.
