iPhone owner? Good news! iOS 17 to bring top user-requested features; Codename Dawn

Apple has finally rolled the iOS 16.4 update after weeks of anticipation and it brings along several new features. Most notable features include 31 new emojis, voice isolation for cellular calls and web push notifications. Despite this rollout, the hype around Apple's next big update, the iOS 17, has not died down. It was previously reported that the upcoming iOS 17 update could be a minor one, with Apple introducing fixes and only minor changes to fine tune the iOS experience. However, a new report has surfaced which contradicts that. Yes, somehing major is happening at Apple regarding iOS 17.
iOS 17: Update details
According to Apple analyst Mark Gurman, 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.
Unlike the iOS 16 update, which Apple released with a major redesign to lock screen customizations, iOS 17 will not have a major change. Instead, the goal will be to address numerous highly requested features by users, according to Gurman. These features might include revamped Apple CarPlay, changes to ‘Hey Siri', Apple potentially allowing side-loading apps with third-party app stores as well as support for Apple's mixed-reality headset.
