In June of last year, Apple launched iOS 16, which itself was released in the fall along with the iPhone 14 family. iOS 17 will be released alongside the iPhone 15 series this year, most likely in September, according to a new report.

iOS 17 Features:

A reliable Apple-related source says iOS 17 won’t introduce any big visual overhauls. The interface should look pretty similar to iOS 16. With the upcoming release, Apple’s Reality Pro AR/VR headset will be supported as well as stability and efficiency will be improved.

A dedicated app for the headset will be included in iOS 17. It will allegedly have a similar concept to the Watch app, but with “significantly more features”. Home appears to be undergoing a revamp, with “major changes” afoot, along with “tweaks” to Find My.

In addition, the Music app will reportedly see some navigational changes. Mail will be simplified “a bit”, while Reminders and Files will be improved. Fitness and Wallet apps may also undergo minor changes, the latter of which might be integrated with Apple Pay Later.

According to the release notes, iOS 17 will be compatible with six devices with Dynamic Islands, including the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. There seems to be no notch on the upcoming iPhone 15 since all four models will have the Dynamic Island.

The iOS 17 code also indicates that all four iPhones will have a USB-C port, but only two will support USB 3.2 speeds, likely the Pro and Pro Max. Devices that do not support Lightning will continue to get similar speeds to what they are currently getting.

Last but not least, the iPhone 15 Pro Max is said to feature more advanced image processing software. As well as a better cooling system probably due to its physical size.
