As reported by Mark Gurman, Apple has decided to change its plan with iOS 17 and we will have long-awaited improvements in the next iPhone update.
In just a few months, Apple will introduce iOS 17, the next big update to the iPhone. Until now, the rumors were not very encouraging and predicted an iOS 17 lacking in news and quite disappointing. However, Mark Gurman arrives with new information assuring that iOS 17 will arrive with “some interesting features” for iPhone.
in his last Newsletter Power OnGurman has talked about many things about Apple and among them he has answered some questions about iOS 17. Gurman reveals that iOS 17 will include several “nice to have” features among the most requested by users. However, it has not revealed any details about these developments.
When Apple began developing iOS 17, the initial thought was to call it a rollover release, one focused more on fixing bugs and improving performance than adding new features (not unlike the approach the company took with Snow Leopard on Mac). OS X in 2009). The hope was to avoid the problems of iOS 16, an ambitious update that suffered from missed deadlines and a buggy start. But later in the development process, the strategy changed. iOS 17 is now expected to have several “nice to have” features, even if it lacks a dramatic improvement like last year’s revamped lock screen. The goal of the software, codenamed “Dawn”, is to fulfill several of the most requested features by users.
What improvements could come to iOS 17?
Gurman says that iOS 17 will arrive with important improvements, but it does not reveal what they would be. He likely has the information but is keeping it for the future, so we can only speculate right now. Gurman usually handles very good information, so if he risks giving in that we will see news, it is because he knows something.
Certainly, iOS 17 may be one of the most important updates in the history of the iPhone. Beyond functions like the ones Gurman mentions, this new update could allow the installation of alternative app storeswhich could forever change the iPhone.
In addition to this important novelty, Apple could improve widgets with new sizes and functions, a change in the design of the icons or even a rumored change to iMessage to make it more like other popular messaging apps. We’ll see if Gurman specifies his information, users want features like a split screen or improved notifications, see if Apple delivers.
