iOS 17 features have been leaked recently to give users an idea of what to expect from the upcoming iPhone 15 series. The latest leak comes from the user @analyst941 on Twitter. The leakster has a good track record as they accurately predicted dynamic island details ahead of the iPhone 14 series launch. However, this time around, the account has shared vague details, which is why we advise taking it with a pinch of salt. Here’s what you need to know about the latest leak.

iOS 17 Leak Details Upcoming Features

The leakster claims to know almost everything about the new features in iOS 17. However, as mentioned before, take it with a pinch of salt due to its vagueness. Notably, Apple will announce iOS 17 at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2023, where it’s also expected to launch a Mixed Reality Headset, a new Mac Pro, and more. Thanks to @analyst941, we now have a vague idea of what Apple must have planned with iOS 17.

According to the latest leak, iOS 17 will support all iPhones currently running iOS 16. It means that the upcoming iOS 17 will arrive on iPhone 8 and newer models. The tipster notes that there’s no word on iPadOs 17 as of now, but Apple may drop support for the A9 and A10-powered iPads. Therefore 5th-generation6th-generation, and 7th-generationiPads might not receive the latest update from the Cupertino-based tech giant. 

As for the features, the tipster claims that iOS 17 will bring improved performance, efficiency, stability, and long-term support for older iPhones. According to the leak, the initial beta updates might be slow on older devices but will get more stable with the final release. Other features mentioned by the leak include:

  1. Control Center major overhaul in terms of UI and customisation.
  2. Added functionalities for Dynamic Island to push iPhone 15 series sales.
  3. Always-on display will get more settings.
  4. Apple will add more Focus Mode filters.
  5. Active Widgets with one-tap buttons, sliders, and more might be added.
  6. Notifications overhaul and additional settings.
  7. Apple Wallet will get CarKey integration.
  8. There will be more custom accessibility settings for greater control over UI for elders and kids.
  9. The Health and Camera app will get several UI changes.
  10. Lastly, Spotlight will get heavy changes in iOS 17.

These are the changes that the leakster alleges will come in iOS 17. However, the more important thing that the leak revealed is that the iPhone 15 series will not come with capacitive or haptic buttons for volume, power, and notification slider. This is contradictory to the latest reports suggesting otherwise.
