The customizable interface can display different styles of clock, calendar, favorite photos, weather forecast, music playback controls, widgets and much more.
StandBy is designed for iPhones on the nightstand, kitchen counter, or desk, and supports Live Activities, Siri, incoming calls, and larger notifications. The function also works with the always-on display of the iPhone 14 Pro.
iOS 17 allows users to create a custom Contact Poster that appears on another person’s iPhone during an incoming call. The poster can include a photo or Memoji, and the font and background color can be customized. The feature is available in the built-in Phone app and will be available in third-party calling apps as well.
NameDrop allows users to easily share contact information when they bring their iPhones close together. Both people can choose the specific phone numbers or email addresses they want to share and share their Contact Poster.
Live Voicemail provides real-time on-screen transcription when someone leaves a message. If the user considers the message important, they can pick up the call while the caller leaves a message. According to Apple, calls identified by service providers as spam will be rejected immediately.
Drag to reply in iMessage
The swipe-to-reply feature in the iPhone’s Messages app is essentially a brand new feature for iOS users that allows them to quickly reply to a specific message in a conversation.
Previously, users had to tap and hold on a message to access the Reply option. However, with the new swipe-to-reply feature, users can simply swipe to reply to a specific message in an iMessage conversation on their iPhone. This will save you a few taps and long presses in the Messages app.
It’s worth mentioning that the swipe-to-reply feature has been around for quite some time on Android and in third-party messaging apps like WhatsApp and Messenger.
Interactive widgets are now available on iPhone on the Home screen, the Lock screen and the new StandBy view.

Home screen widgets previously offered limited functionality, as Apple did not allow developers to add elements with scrolling, buttons, or animations.

Additionally, users now get predictive text suggestions as they type, allowing them to add words or complete sentences by pressing the space bar.
AutoCorrect has received an updated design in iOS 17, briefly underlining the word autocorrect. Tapping the underlined word will display the original typed word, making it easy to undo quickly. The system also learns the user’s typing habits over time and avoids some corrections.
Apple Maps Offline
Apple Maps introduces key Google Maps functionality in iOS 17 with the ability to download maps for offline use. According to Apple, users can download a specific map area and access self-guided navigation, see an estimated time of arrival, find places and more when the iPhone is not connected to a cellular or Wi-Fi network.
iOS 17 brings a new Stickers drawer that gives you access to all your stickers, including Live Stickers, emojis, Memoji, and iMessage sticker packs in one place. Live Stickers can be created by tapping and holding an object on a photo, such as a cat or dog.
“Hey Siri” is short for Siri
