Apple fans anticipate the release of iOS 17.3 & iPadOS 17.3 for their respective iPhones and iPads. The stable version of these upgrades is still pending and will be released shortly; the corporation has already begun testing the beta versions. To learn more, continue reading.
Features like the new Journaling application, customizable notification sounds, and more were available in the previous iOS version; this may not be true. Improvements happen less frequently than they did with the previous model. Nonetheless, we will discuss a few noteworthy changes in this article.
iOS 17.3 Expected Features
1. Device Theft Protection- The feature’s purpose is explained by its name on its own. Hackers can try to spy on a person’s iPhone to figure out the unlocking pattern (a numerical passcode attempt), which leads to data theft. The company designed a function in their smartphones dubbed “Stolen Device Mode” as a preventative measure.
Under severe circumstances, this feature will save your credentials and shield your device from possible harm if the thief gets hold of your iPhone and passcode. Some of the features will only function if the biometric authentication is enabled in the Stolen Device Mode.
2. Collaborative Playlists in Apple Music- For the uninitiated, the functionality just addresses the playlists. To make it more “Collaborative,” you might establish a fresh one, invite your loved ones, and allow them to construct some playlists that you can combine. You have the opportunity to invite other users, who may then add to your music-listening experience by sharing their song selections.
The most anticipated feature is this one. It was already there in the beta update of the recently released iOS 17.2 from the business, but it was quickly taken out before the release of the stable version. With iOS 17.3, the feature is making a comeback while users eagerly await it.
3. Apple Music Emoji & Reactions- You can also use the emoji reaction tool in the Collaborative Apple Music Playlists to convey your emotions and react to the music you are listening to. While the default emojis are thumbs up, smiling, heart, and down, you can adjust your favorites by tapping the “+” button. If the songs with the emoji reactions are played, the emoji may begin to move immediately.
Expected Release Date and Concluding Remarks
Apple has now clarified the situation by stating that the completed product would be available to us the following week. On Wednesday, January 17, the release candidate version of iOS 17.3, which comes right before the public release, was made available. Although the iOS 17.3 update doesn’t end up being that big of an upgrade, consumers are eagerly awaiting the two or three major and crucial changes that are coming soon.
