Apple held its annual iPhone event on Tuesday, dubbed “Wonderlust” for 2023. Alongside the new iPhone 15 and next generation Apple Watch, the company announced that iOS 17, which the new generation of devices will use, will be available as a free software update on Monday, September 18.
The public preview for iOS 17 has been available for download since June and has already shown off a number of design refinements including user-definable outgoing call screens so you can pick what people see when you call them and an option to send incoming calls to voicemail and read a transcription of them instead. Users will also be able to send quick voice or video messages if someone doesn’t pick up their Facetime calls as well as mute/unmute themselves through their AirPods. The system’s spellcheck has also been improved for fewer “ducking” autocorrects.
This is a developing story. Please check back for updates.
