Apple will officially unveil iOS 17 in just 3 weeks and we’ve gone over all the rumors about the next iPhone operating system.
remain only 3 weeks to start WWDC 2023, Apple’s worldwide developer conference. It is one of the most important events that the apple company organizes every year and it presents all the new software (and sometimes a surprise in the form of devices).
This means that there are only 3 weeks left for Apple to present us with iOS 17 along with iPadOS 17, macOS 14, watchOS 10, and tvOS 17. And while Apple appears to have software leaks very well under control, we’ve already heard some rumors about the new iPhone system.
Everything we know about iOS 17
Some news is known about iOS 17 in the form of rumors, but of course there is much that has not been revealed. We know that iOS 17 will be officially presented on June 5 at 7:00 p.m. Spanish time at the Steve Jobs Theater from Apple Park and these are some of the news that have leaked:
New Control Center
It seems that Apple is preparing an improvement in the control of the iPhone. It is a section of the interface that It hasn’t changed for many years and that Apple could change in iOS 17. Although we don’t really know how it could change, a major update is expected in this section.
In iOS we have many interesting apps by default and it seems that one more will be added to the list in iOS 17. Apple is reportedly preparing a personal diary app similar to Day One but with an Apple touch. It seems that we will not only be able to write our activities in this journal, we will also be able to include the location automatically, integrate data on health and training and receive suggestions on potential topics of interest.
Updating the Search, Health and Wallet apps
Three apps will get a lot better in iOS 17 according to the leaks. Each with some important news:
- Look for: It is intended to offer a better location system to be sure that, in the event of a theft, Apple can protect us or cover us in a better way.
- Health: Apple is planning to add the ability to track mood and emotions. Users could record their mood, answer various questions about their day, and see how their responses change over time.
- Briefcase: You will have an interface with search functions and separate tabs for each card.
Alternative app stores
Probably one of the biggest changes in iOS history, if not the biggest since the arrival of the App Store in iOS 2.0. Apple is going to allow installation of alternative application stores or, at least, the option to install apps from outside the App Store.
It’s about a major change in the way the iPhone worksbut it is an obligation by the European Union Digital Markets Law, and for that reason it could be an exclusive function of Europe.
