Every iPhone and iPad is getting iOS 17 update

iOS 17

Apple released iOS 17 today, following nearly ten beta tests throughout the Summer. Additionally, it supports a huge number of iPhones and iPads this year. Which is typical behavior for Apple. They frequently upgrade their phones and tablets for many years, significantly longer than what current Android OEMs do.

Here is a list of supported devices provided by Apple. In essence, it’s an iPhone Xs or newer. The iPhone SE (2nd and 3rd Generation), iPhone Xr, iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max, and iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max, and of course the new iPhone 15 series, but it will come pre-installed.

The list is a little bit shorter for the iPad with iPad OS 17. The iPad Air (3rd Generation or later), iPad Mini (5th Generation or later), iPad (6th Generation or later), iPad Pro 11-inch (1st Generation or later), iPad Pro 10.5-inch, and iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2nd Generation or later) will all be included.

What has iOS 17 added?

A number of new features for the iPhone are coming in iOS 17, while new features for the iPad are coming in iPad OS 17. One of the most notable features of the iPhone is Standby, which, when your phone is charging and rotated 90 degrees, essentially transforms it into a smart display. This may involve using a cable charger or a MagSafe charger. Additionally, FaceTime Voicemail is included.

Apple is really porting over certain iOS 16 functionality to the iPad for iPad OS 17. That includes giving you the option to personalize your lock screen. The iPad OS 17 allows you to add widgets, modify the clock style, and do a lot more, just like the iOS 16 iPhone. Both iOS 17 and iPad OS 17 will feature interactive widgets that you can engage with without launching the app. The Home widget, which allows you to control your lights directly from the home screen, is a nice illustration of this.

Since Apple makes the update available to everyone worldwide at once, it may take a little while for users to receive it at first.
