Apple fans, mark your calendars for September 12! That’s the day when Apple is all set to host its highly anticipated Wonderlust event. At this event, the tech giant will be lifting the curtain on the next generation of iPhones, the Watch Series, and more. Moreover, we’ll also be introduced to the new and more powerful iOS 17 and iPadOS 17 software. With less than two weeks to go, we’ve got some exciting tidbits to share with you about what’s coming up.
iOS 17 and iPadOS 17: The next big things
Back in June, at its annual WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference), Apple made a splash by announcing the upcoming iOS 17 and iPadOS 17. Now, you might be wondering what’s so special about these new software versions. Well, we’ve got the scoop for you!
Simultaneous release for iPhones and iPads
Typically, Apple rolls out new versions of its operating system for iPhones and iPads in a somewhat staggered manner. These new versions often see the light of day at the company’s annual fall event. But before that, they go through extensive testing to ensure they’re shipshape and ready for prime time.
Here’s the exciting news: Apple is shaking things up this time around. According to reliable sources within Apple, such as Bloomberg’s own Mark Gurman, it appears that the eighth betas of both iOS 17 and iPadOS 17 may well be the final versions. Apple recently made these beta versions available to developers and public beta testers. What’s even more intriguing is that Apple plans to release both new software versions for the iPhone and iPad simultaneously.
Now, let’s take a quick trip down memory lane. Last year, iOS 16 was unveiled for iPhones on September 12, but iPadOS 16 didn’t make its appearance until October 24, almost a month later. Some issues related to the Stage Manager caused the delay. But this time, Apple seems determined to synchronize the releases of iOS 17 and iPadOS 17 shortly after the iPhone 15 launch announcement on September 12.
So, what can you expect from these exciting new software updates? Let’s break it down for you in simple terms.
iOS 17: Get ready for standby mode, new AirDrop capabilities, interactive widgets, a journal app, and a bunch of other upgrades that will make your iPhone experience even more enjoyable.
iPadOS 17: iPad lovers, you’re in for a treat. This update will bring you a customized lock screen, Safari profiles for a more tailored browsing experience, enhancements to the Health app, and much more.
As we gear up for Apple’s Wonderlust event on September 12, the excitement is palpable. With the promise of iOS 17 and iPadOS 17 dropping simultaneously, Apple is ready to give its users a double dose of innovation. Stay tuned because the future of your iPhone and iPad is about to get even brighter!
