According to 9to5Mac, Apple’s developers have started to file on IOS 17 and most things point to us getting a preview as usual at the developer conference WWDC in June and that the sharp version will be released in the fall.
The rollout of IOS 16 was far from smooth and therefore the number of new features is expected to be significantly fewer in IOS 17. In this way, Apple can focus on optimizing the code to offer higher performance and increased security.
An expected novelty is support for Apple’s upcoming mixed reality headset and possibly there may also be support for alternative app stores, this after pressure from the EU and the US.
In addition to IOS 17, we will also see previews of Ipad OS 17, TV OS 17, Mac OS 14 and Watch OS 10 at this summer’s WWDC event.
