Exploring iOS 17: Apple's Latest iPhone Operating System

18 Sept 2023

iOS 17, Apple's latest iPhone operating system was released today (18th September 2023), and continues to push the boundaries in the ever-evolving world of smartphones. Available for iPhone XR/XS and newer models, iOS 17 focuses on enhancing iOS in small but welcome ways. Notably, the Phone app has been revamped to offer personalized and expressive conversations, featuring the innovative ability to create customized Contact Posters that extend beyond the Phone app to third-party applications, ensuring a consistent, personalized calling experience.

Beyond communication, iOS 17 introduces a new journaling app called "Journal," set to launch later this year. This app intelligently curates prompt from your daily activities, prioritizes privacy with features like app locking and encryption, and even extends its capabilities to developers through the Journaling Suggestions API. With meaningful updates to the Phone, FaceTime, and Messages apps, including Live Voicemail transcription and FaceTime Reactions, iOS 17 is poised to enhance the iPhone user experience, offering something for everyone, whether it's staying connected, managing voicemails, or reflecting on life's moments.

iOS 17 also introduces a range of security and privacy improvements in all areas of the OS – from photos to URL tracking in private browsing, making it a strongly recommended update for business users.

If you own an iPhone XR/XS or a later model, the latest features and enhancements of iOS 17 should be installed as soon as practical. If you are using a phone no longer supported by iOS 17, we would also highly recommend upgrading devices for security reasons.
