The next major version of Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS 17, will announced on Monday as part of Apple’s WWDC presentation.
But when can you expect to get your hands on with iOS 17? iOS 17 release date has not officially confirmed quite yet. But the company usually sticks to a familiar pattern on the calendar …
Ahead of June 5, rumors are rife about the Apple Reality Pro headset … or whatever it ends up called.
But WWDC is also the time for Apple to unveil the new software features for iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Mac for the coming year
For this, in fact, Apple has already shared details about new accessibility features coming later this year. Thus, including a new simplified alternate app launcher layout and Live Speech feature using your own Personal Voice.
But the remainder of the consumer features will announced on Monday.
We likley to see a more sophisticated always-on display view when the iPhone is docked. It is siimilar to a smart display like the Amazon Echo Show, a new journalling app, new Wallet app and location sharing features, additional Dynamic Island functionality for iPhone 14 Pro (and soon, iPhone 15) owners.
And likely some other surprises that have not yet rumored. However, with Apple’s focus being primarily on the XR headset this year.
This probably won’t have anything as huge as the iOS 16 Lock Screen redesign or iOS 14 home screen widgets update
iOS 17 expected release date:
In terms of release date, we can expect that iOS 17 will be available as a developer beta seed following the keynote on Monday.
That means around 1 PM PST iOS 17 beta 1 will be available for developers to install on their test devices. Developer seeds are available to registered Apple developers only.
Assuming Apple sticks to its predictable schedule, a public beta of iOS 17 will follow a few weeks after that. This wil around the end of June or the first few weeks of July. For comparison, the first public beta of iOS 16 hasreleased on July 11, 2022. Anyone can sign up to be a part of the Apple Beta Software Program.
