Apple unveiled iOS 17, the next version of its mobile operating system that powers the iPhone, on Monday. iOS 17 is getting a number of new features, further redefining the iPhone user experience.

Some of the prominent features of iOS 17 include a new feature called Contact Poster, which allows users to customise a contact by adding full-sized photos or memoji with colourful texts. Similarly, iOS 17 also gets a live voice mail feature, where, users can see live transcripts of voice mail in real-time while the caller is composing, and allows users to respond to the call while the caller is leaving the message, and this feature won’t work for spam calls.

The messages app also gets new features like support for live stickers, a more precise and capable search option, and a check-in option, where, the iPhone can automatically notify her/his friends and family after reaching a destination and if they don’t arrive at the selected location, an intimation will be shared with the select contact with critical data like location, battery life, and more.

Apple Maps now supports offline navigation and AirDrop can be used to quickly share contact details using the new feature called NameDrop to an iPhone or Apple Watch. iOS 17 also gets a new first-party apps Journal, which can be used to document day-to-day activities.

Another prominent new feature of iOS 17 is the StandBy mode, where, the iPhone will display glanceable information such as time, photos, widgets, and live activities while charging. However, this feature is limited to iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
