iOS 17 details leak, don’t expect many visual changes, just a focus on stability and efficiency

Apple has just pushed out iOS 16.3, the latest version of iOS 16, which itself was introduced back in June of last year and released this fall with the iPhone 14 family. This year, iOS 17 will be released together with the iPhone 15 series, most likely in September, and today a new report already talks about it.

According to this source, who has been reliable in the past when it comes to Apple-related things, iOS 17 won’t introduce any major visual overhauls. In fact, you should expect it to look pretty much identical to iOS 16. Instead, the focus of the upcoming release will be on increasing stability and efficiency and supporting Apple’s Reality Pro AR/VR headset.

To that end, iOS 17 will include a new, dedicated app for the headset. This will reportedly be a concept similar to the Watch app, but with “significantly more features”. The Home app looks like it’s in for a revamp, with “major changes” on the way, along with several smaller-sounding “tweaks” to Find My.

In addition, the Music app will reportedly see some changes related to navigation within it. The Mail app will be simplified “a bit” and reminders and files will be improved, though we’re not told how. Apparently, you should also expect minor changes to the Fitness and Wallet apps, the latter of which may be connected to Apple Pay Later.

It appears that iOS 17 is built to run on six devices with a Dynamic Island, two of which are the already available iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. So it seems that all four upcoming iPhone 15 models will have the dynamic island, finally giving up the notch.

According to other parts of the iOS 17 code, all four upcoming iPhones will have a USB-C port, but only two will support USB 3.2 speeds, presumably the Pro and Pro Max. The non-Pro handsets will be stuck with speeds similar to what they currently get through Lightning.

Finally, the iPhone 15 Pro Max is said to come with “more advanced” imaging software compared to the iPhone 15 Pro, and a better cooling system (presumably made possible, at least in part, by the phone being physically larger).
