Apple could make some unexpected changes with iOS 17: Report


  • Apple is expected to detail some features of iOS 17 at WWDC in June
  • However, current iPhone users will have to wait until September to get the update
  • There’s still no precise info on what’s going to be different with iOS 17

Apple’s annual WWDC event is scheduled to take place in June. As we inch closer to the announcement, it’s customary to encounter a few tidbits of information, especially about Apple’s software, such as iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, and macOS. We’re now learning some interesting details about what’s to come with iOS 17 — which is expected to power the upcoming iPhone 15 series.

As per Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple could be ready to make some big changes with this year’s iOS refresh bearing the codename “Dawn.”. He states that the tech juggernaut was previously looking to take a more measured approach with iOS 17 after the issues caused during the early days of the iOS 16 rollout last year. However, Gurman claims Apple’s strategy changed somewhere down the line, with the company now looking to add more features to the software.

Without going into too much detail, Gurman suggests that some user-requested features could be making their way to the software. Another key addition would be support for the hotly-anticipated Apple mixed reality headset. As we touched on above, Apple will also provide details on its other software releases, such as macOS and iPadOS.

When will iOS 17 reach existing iPhone users?

While Apple provides iOS 17 software early to developers, others have to wait a while to get the update. The company will likely wait until the iPhone 15 announcement to provide a specific rollout date for the current crop of iPhones, but it should be no later than September 2023.
