A new leak claims to offer some of the first details about Apple's next mobile operating system update for iPhones, likely called iOS 17.

Leaker 941 (Anonymous A.S) shared the following thread on Twitter, detailing what's new in iOS17. Apple will likely unveil iOS 17 at WWDC, which takes place June 5-9 this year.

Check out the iOS 17 tidbits below and please download the iClarified app or follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and RSS for more Apple updates.

1. iOS 17 Will support all models of the iPhone that was supported with iOS 16. Including ALL 'A11 Bionic' powered devices like iPhone 8, iPhone X.

2. As for iPadOS 17; the A9 and A10 Fusion powered iPads may or may not make it to final. It will be decided by QC in 3-4 weeks.

3. Performance, efficiency, stability and long-term support for older devices are the main features of this update.

3.1. First few beta cycles may end up being rough for devices with 3gb of ram (standard iPads, iPhone 8/X) but will improve to become more stable and efficient.

4. Control Center major changes towards UI, customization, etc.

5. Dynamic Island will do a lot more; marketing department pressured development team to add more to Dynamic Island most likely to push sales of the standard iPhone 15's release.

6. More always on display settings.

7. More Focus Mode filters in settings.

8. Notification changes and additional options in Settings.

9. Custom Accessibility settings will give total control over the UI and layout for older persons or younger children.

10. Active widgets are in testing, but not confirmed by any means. Active widgets will bring one-tap buttons, sliders and more making widgets dynamic.

11. CarKey improvements and more Car implementations into the Wallet app.

12. Health app UI changes, especially regarding "Favorites" in Health.

13. Camera app changes; these were initially planned for the iPhone 14 Pro release, and MAY only be implemented into iPhone 15's OS, rather than all iOS 17 devices.

14. Heavily improved Search/Spotlight

15. An absolute behemoth of ARKit API's/frameworks. Don't take that lightly either, a metric ton of them.

Note: iPhone 15 Pro models are still by far on track to receive capacitive/haptic volume, "action", and power buttons — contrary to recent contradicting rumors.
