With Apple announcing the date for WWDC 2023, the hype around iOS 17 is building up. Previous reports had revealed that iOS 17 would only bring about minor changes and not any substantial features. But recently, Apple analyst Mark Gurman stated that the iOS 17 update will bring some ‘nice to have' features. In his Power On newsletter, Gurman revealed that Apple originally intended iOS 17 to be a ‘tuneup release'. But Apple has now changed its strategy regarding the iOS 17 update, which has been codenamed Dawn, and it will now arrive with several new features.

9to5Mac recently conducted a poll where it asked users which iOS 17 features they would want the most. With over 7000 votes, the results of the poll have made the wishes of iPhone users clear.
