Incoming Calls Get a Major Upgrade

We all know how essential the Phone app is on our iPhones, and with iOS 17, it’s getting a significant makeover. Personalized Contact Posters let you express yourself by customizing how you appear when calling your contacts, even in third-party apps. You can add beautiful treatments to photos, Memojis, and choose eye-catching fonts and colors.

New Ways to Enjoy FaceTime

FaceTime is getting even more expressive. You can now leave video or audio messages when your friends aren’t available. Express yourself with Reactions like hearts, balloons, and fireworks, and these gestures work with third-party apps like Zoom and Webex too. Plus, FaceTime syncs seamlessly with Apple TV 4K for an immersive experience.

More Ways to Stay Connected with Messages

Messages are becoming even more user-friendly. Enhanced search filters make finding messages a breeze. Audio messages are automatically transcribed for your convenience. And replying to messages is as simple as a swipe. You can also create Live Stickers from photos and add fun effects to bring them to life. With the new Check In feature, you can notify loved ones when you arrive safely, and they get real-time updates on your location.

StandBy: A Game-Changer While Charging

Introducing StandBy, a full-screen feature designed to display essential information while your iPhone is charging. It’s perfect for your desk, nightstand, or kitchen counter. Customize it with various clock styles, photos, and widgets, including Smart Stacks. Plus, it has an Always-On display and adapts to low light conditions with Night Mode.

Easier Sharing with AirDrop and NameDrop

Sharing content has never been easier with AirDrop. NameDrop lets you exchange contact info and share content with a simple gesture. Soon, you’ll even be able to continue transfers over the internet when you step out of AirDrop range.

Comprehensive Updates to Autocorrect and Dictation

Autocorrect gets smarter with a new language model for word prediction. It now handles sentence-level autocorrections and provides inline predictive text. Dictation also sees improvements in speech recognition.
