New iOS Features for iOS 17


1.       Customized Contact Posters

This improvement is one of the many upgrades that are intended to refresh and improve the iPhone app side of things. This change will allow you to use your Memoji to customize your profile, and this special identifier will show up when people who have made this change call or text. You will also be able to link these posters to other third-party apps for easy information sharing between friends and yourself.


2.       Live Voicemail

This cool feature will allow for a real-time transcription of voicemail messages that will show up on the lock screen as someone is leaving a message. People of the right age remember how easy it was to grab the phone when someone you wanted to talk to started to leave a message on your answering machine. This is the same kind of idea, only streamlined and much more modern.


3.       NameDrop

If you use AirDrop a lot, you will love that you can now bring your iPhone near another iPhone device and share contact information. This handy feature will make meeting new people easier than ever. You can also bring your phones close together to initiate a SharePlay experience where you can share music, watch a movie, or play a game together. There is also work being done to allow AirDrop to send large files through proximity sharing.


4.       FaceTime Improvements

When you want to talk to someone on FaceTime, you will now be able to leave a video recording or audio message when someone doesn’t pick up the phone. You can also use reactions inside of these calls now, and effects are activated through gestures or can be accessed through third-party apps as well.

5.       Message App Improvements

There has been a need to clean up and improve the messaging app for some time, and iOS17 will handle all the requests of users with regard to this part of the operating system.

You will enjoy an updated stickers option, and you will find that the entire messaging interface is much easier to use and easier to read.


6.       Link to Apple Tv 4K

7.       Emoji Characters Are Stickers

If you love your emoji character and want to use them more often, you can! All emojis will not be stickers, and you can use them in live photos, turn them into animated stickers, or add special effects to them, like glitter or different colors.


8.       Search Filters Are Improved

If you have ever been frustrated trying to find something in the messages app by searching with keywords, you are in luck! This function works better than ever in the new iOS, and you will have no trouble searching for various keywords all at once to find messages and information that is buried in your older text conversations. Text messages are now transcribed automatically so they can be read right at the time that they are sent.


9.       Check-In and Location Sharing

If you want to be able to share your location immediately and watch it update in real time, then this new feature is perfect for your needs. You can also use Check-In with the same feature so that your family and friends know when you are safe and sound or have arrived at a new destination. You don’t have to send this message yourself, Check In will do it automatically for you so you don’t forget.

10.   Improved Autocorrect

It was well past time for an improved autocorrect function which helps you to access the support of a new machine learning model. This helps better predict what you should say, and it can let you autofill entire sentences by just pressing the spacebar. This tool also helps correct mistakes much more readily with a simple tap. Speech recognition was also improved and beefed up to make sure that you can say what you need to say even when you don’t have two hands to text with.
