Outlook for iOS 17: updates, bug fixes and wish list functions

Next June we will be part of the WWDC23 various new operating systems from Apple. Among them will be iOS 17 for the iPhone. However, this should be less extensive than iOS 16 last year. If this system brought new features such as customizable lock screens, background removal in photos, multi-stop routes in the Maps app, new security settings and the like, iOS 17 should primarily be an update with bug fixes and performance increases. Errors of the ambitious predecessor should be ironed out. At the same time, there should be a few small innovations that are on the wish list of users.

The new iOS 17 is said to have been planned for a while as a pure "Tuneup Release" for iOS 16. However, a few new functions are now interspersed, which are probably frequently addressed by users. There shouldn't be any major innovations like iOS 16.

iOS 17 is for the iPhone like Mac OS X 10.6 is for the Mac

For anyone who kept their Mac up to date in the 2000s, the comparison will certainly make sense: Apple released Mac OS X 2007 Leopard in 10.5. This introduced Boot Camp, Time Machine backups, the animated 3D Dock, Safari 3 and many other innovations. For the next two years, Apple was busy polishing it all up. And so, in 2009, Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard came out—it had fewer major innovations, but it used less disk space and memory. Little extras included iCal support and QuickTime Player X (more details here).

In 2022, iOS 16 brought major changes to the iPhone. And it has also been shown that some things still need fine-tuning. That's how it should be iOS 17 will be presented as an update system in June 2023 and then published in autumn. According to Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman, Apple discussed the term "Tuneup Release" because the operating system's performance is to be significantly increased. However, this was abandoned because it was decided to add a few new functions. This was based on the most frequently expressed wishes of the users. The system will probably be officially released with the release of the iPhone 15 series in September 2023.
