The long-awaited iOS/iPad OS 17 is finally here, and Apple has released the first beta version of the new OS. If you're eligible, you can upgrade.
The iOS 17 improvements are relatively modest. Apple is still making some minor changes, such as customizing the incoming call screen like the lock screen and allowing portrait display in Chinese.
In addition, the voice mailbox in the new system has a new real-time transcription function, which can convert speech to text locally in real time, while iMessage has a new voice message transcription, location sharing, etc., and there is a sticker function, pictures can be designed for dynamic stickers.
In order to increase the convenience of data transmission between iphones, Apple introduced NameDrop. After two iphones touch, some data, such as information, can be transmitted.
In iOS 17, Apple has improved the keyboard input method, the keyboard has its own predictions, and the dictation function has been enhanced, while the wakeword used to wake up the Siri voice assistant has been simplified from "Hey Siri" to "Siri".
In addition, under the new system, it also provides a new standby display function, which can display various information and widgets when turned on. Landscape screen becomes a smart display in seconds, but it needs to be used when charging. On updated models, iPhone 8 series and iPhone X cannot update iOS 17.
Overall, the iPad OS 17 update is much the same as iOS 17, with the addition of pre-desk scheduling to improve productivity, more flexibility about window size and location, and more interactive widget Settings on the home screen.
