Listen to Story
Apple has released the last beta update for the latest iOS 17 operating system and people can expect the company to roll out the stable version of the software. This will likely happen next month after the launch of the new iPhone 15 series. While the company has already revealed all the major updates coming with the latest iOS 17 version, here is a quick look at the features that are available in the beta 6 update and the ones that people will see in the public version.


Features spotted in iOS 17 beta 6

The latest iOS 17 beta 6 update brings a host of enhancements to the Messages app. Now, by simply holding down the “+” button, users can effortlessly access the photo picker, eliminating the need to navigate through a list and select the Photos option. In a recent interface adjustment, Apple relocated the red end call button within the Phone app from the bottom center to the bottom right. However, this change received mixed reactions due to users’ ingrained habit of tapping the center. Responding to feedback, in the sixth beta iteration, Apple has reverted the end call button back to its familiar central position, aligning with its placement in iOS 16 and earlier versions.
Apple’s dedication to refining user experience extends to mood-tracking animations. Notably, the animations for mood tracking have been fine-tuned. The moods’ surrounding rings now exhibit swifter and more numerous animations around each mood shape. A fresh splash screen welcomes users to the Photos app, effectively introducing them to the new features seamlessly.
In the Photos app, you can pinch to crop images in this app and iPhone users will also be able to see their desired pictures in the Photos widget. One will also be able to reorder and make some other changes. People will see separate Pets Albums too.

iOS 17 features Apple introduced at WWDC 2023

At WWDC 2023, Apple showed off the new features that will be coming to iOS 17. Here is a list of other features that people would be seeing when the latest software is released. iOS 17 will bring a new Live Voicemail feature with live transcription, which basically means that one will be able to check the real-time live translation of the recording. One of the useful updates coming to FaceTime is that it will leave video messages if someone misses a call. iMessage has also been updated with search filters and people will be able to reply to a message by just swiping the text. The audio messages now also get automatically transcribed. The users can also now share locations on iMessage as a new location-sharing feature has been added to the app. Additionally, one will also see a new design for the iMessage app, hiding apps, and the camera which is located behind a + button in iMessage.
What else? One will be able to use maps in offline mode too. iPhone users will now be able to create stickers of subjects from any photo. One can also make “Live stickers” using motion photos. The good thing is the stickers will also work in third-party apps, which was not the case before. There are also improvements in AirDrop. One can swap phone number with someone new using AirDrop. All you need to do is bring phones close together to share number and email addresses.
You can use AirDrop to share big files and iPhone users can now use SharePlay to sync up livestreams or music. Apple also introduced a new app called Journal, which will be coming later this year. You can save moments to Journal, and schedule notifications for the start or end of your day. Apple assures privacy by locking suggestions and entries, securing them through end-to-end encryption, inaccessible even to the company.
