If you’re an iOS user, then you know that the next update to the operating system, iOS 17 is coming later this year. With so many improvements to be made, we’re sure you’re itching to try out the new features. But before you can even think about installing the latest version of the OS on your phone, there are a few things you need to know first.
Controlling video on iOS 17
If you are an Apple user then you probably already know that iOS 17 is just around the corner. With this update, Apple is looking to improve the performance of your smart home. It will come with a host of features, and the one that really stands out is the ability to control your videos. While there was a time when you were limited to watching movies on your iPad, things have improved.
The new video capabilities should be a welcome addition. For example, you can pause and rewind a video. Also, you will be able to copy and paste the text from a video, which will come in handy if you are having a conference call on your iPhone.
Installing applications from third-party app stores
Apple is set to change the way it handles apps in iOS 17. In the upcoming iOS 17, Apple will allow users to install applications from third-party app stores.
Previously, the only way to get apps on an iPhone was through the App Store. However, with the introduction of the Digital Markets Act in Europe, Apple is preparing to allow third-party app stores to be installed on its mobile devices.
The new EU law calls for developers to be given access to all the core features of their operating system. This would give developers a chance to move away from Apple’s 30 percent cut of the revenue.
Improved iMessage Home Screen
It’s a fact that iOS notifications have been an underrated aspect of Apple’s mobile operating system for years. However, in the latest update, iOS 17, it looks like Apple is getting serious about the notifications game. This is thanks to the addition of several new features to the Messages app.
One of the new features is called Safety Check. It’s a feature designed to keep users safe from abusive relationships. The feature allows users to turn off shared data, which can be helpful in cases when someone you love is a bully.
Another new feature is Smarter Dictation, which automatically punctuates texts. There’s also an in-line reply feature. And the iMessage app will also be integrating SharePlay, which lets users listen to music or watch movies while they text.
Chat Rooms, Stickers, etc.
A chat room or chatting app is a great way to interact with friends or strangers. You can talk, text, and even play games. This type of messaging application has become a rage in the social media era. If you are looking to find a mate, this is a good place to start.
There are a number of apps to choose from, ranging from free to premium. The perks of a paid membership include access to chat rooms of all sizes, as well as the option to create your own. Plus, you can make a room public or private, and the option to buy and gift elements of the app.
App cloning is the process of creating duplicate apps that run in parallel space without impacting the original. It is an effective tool that allows you to use two accounts of the same app on one mobile phone.
Using App cloning, you can customize your own cloned app to suit your needs. You can change the icon, name and other features.
App cloning has the potential to enhance productivity. Since you can work in parallel spaces, you will get more done in less time. A virtual keyboard is also enabled in cloned applications. This way, you will not be able to share your input method with third parties.
While it’s not the newest mobile operating system, the iPhone is getting an upgrade in the form of faster processors and a re-configured hardware layout. Apple is also preparing a suite of apps aimed at the enterprise market. It’s all in preparation for an augmented reality app launch, which may happen on the heels of the iPhone X. Similarly, a new MacBook Air is in the works. The good news is that the ills of these new upgrades should be enjoyed by the masses. In addition, there’s a plethora of apps to choose from. With that said, the pitfalls of upgrading can be mitigated by a few simple steps.
