Apple's iOS17: You can use it on this iPhone

In Germany, the expected launch for iOS 17 is on Monday evening. Although Apple does not specify an exact time, updates are usually available from 19 p.m., as reported by the technology portal Inside Digital. iPhone users can then download the update on their own. To do this, they simply have to follow this path: Settings – General – Software Update.

If the iPhone model supports the latest operating system, iOS 17 will appear there after it is released. The update is started via "Download and Install". Once downloaded, a reboot will take place and iOS 17 will be installed. For a successful installation of the update, a full battery and a stable internet connection are recommended.

These are the main updates and features of iOS 17:

  • Transcription of voice messages: Voice messages are now converted to text. So you can read them immediately and play them later.
  • New way to share and view locations: Share your location or ask for that of your friends using the plus button. Shared locations are visible directly in your chat.
  • Inform others of your safe arrival: With the "Companion" function, friends or family members are automatically informed when you have reached your destination.
  • Faster finding of messages: Apple is adding new jump labels to quickly navigate to unread messages.
  • All iMessage apps in one place: Tap the new plus button to see everything you've sent the most - photos, voice messages, location.
  • Sharing by holding devices together: Just hold your phones side by side to start the transfer with AirDrop. This also works to start a SharePlay session.
  • Even more precise auto-correction: Auto-corrected words are temporarily underlined so you can see what's changed. A simple tap is enough to return to the original word.
  • All stickers in one place: In the new sticker box, you'll have access to all your live stickers, emojis, Memojis, and other sticker packs. Your stickers sync with iCloud, so they're available on all other Apple devices.
  • Poster on calls: Determine what others see when you call. iPhone users can now create full-screen-sized posters that will appear on other iPhone users when you call them.
  • Safari: Browse Safari with different profiles for different areas such as work and home.

However, Apple with the iPhone is also affected by the downturn in smartphones and computers. Most recently, the company sold fewer devices, but benefited from hundreds of millions of customers of the digital offerings. (viwe)
