iOS 17 rumors

Here are the false iOS 17 rumors you should not pay any attention to

A well-known troll account @LeaksApplePro has spread the following false or bogus claims regarding expected features on iOS 17:

  • Codename “Dawn”
  • Focus on stability and efficiency
  • Support for the upcoming Apple mixed reality headset
  • Home app to gain FindMy support
  • Release of Apple Pay Later service
  • Changes to the UI of the Apple Music app
  • Simplification of the Mail app
  • Improvements to Reminders and Files apps
  • Compatible with iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max, and the entire iPhone 15 series, only models with Dynamic Island.

The bogus rumors are so outlandish that Mark Gurman from Bloomberg couldn’t help but share his surprise at established publishers covering them.

What we know about iOS 17 from credible sources is that the update would include redesigned iMessage with new chat features in augmented reality, a home tab, chat rooms, video clips, and more. It is also possible that Apple could allow sideloading on iOS 17 but only in Europe as the result of the upcoming Digital Markets Act in the EU.

Sideloading refers to permitting third-party app stores on iOS with their own payment systems outside the App Store which Apple does not allow currently. The tech company has been vehemently fighting against legislation to permit sideloading over users’ safety and security concerns.
