iOS 17 Will Get Several 'Nice to Have' Features [Gurman]

Apple is set to include several 'nice to have' features in iOS 17, according to a new report from Bloomberg's Mark Gurman.

Originally, Apple was planning to make iOS 17 (codenamed Dawn) a release that focused on minor improvements and bug fixes, but some new features have allegedly made their way to the software update.

When Apple set out to develop iOS 17, the initial thinking was to call it a tuneup release - one focused more on fixing bugs and improving performance than adding new features (not unlike the approach the company took with Snow Leopard on Mac OS X back in 2009). The hope was to avoid the problems of iOS 16, an ambitious update that suffered from missed deadlines and a buggy start. But later in the development process, the strategy changed. The iOS 17 release is now expected to boast several "nice to have" features, even if it lacks a tentpole improvement like last year's revamped lock screen. The goal of the software, codenamed "Dawn," is to check off several of users' most requested features.

Unfortunately, we don't know what these "nice to have" features are yet. However, Apple will likely unveil what's new with the first beta of iOS 17 at WWDC 2023 in June, as it usually does. The company is also expected to unveil its mixed reality headset at the event.
