Sneak peek at iOS 17: Apple Music, App Library, and Control Center changes

Apple’s iOS 17 is set to launch soon, and rumors suggest it will bring a range of new features and changes across various areas of the iPhone. A Weibo post, which accurately predicted the launch of the iPhone 14 in Yellow, has listed several potential features.

iOS 17 for iPhone will focus on stability and performance with some exciting upgrades

First up are Lock Screen changes. The post suggests that iOS 17 will include font size options for the Lock Screen, the ability to share custom Lock Screen designs with other iPhone users, and the option to view Apple Music lyrics on the Lock Screen.

Apple Music is also expected to receive some design changes with a simplified interface, and users will be able to manually rename folders in the App Library. Control Center is also expected to receive a new look, with a flashlight brightness slider that can be adjusted freely, similar to the volume slider.

While these changes may not be groundbreaking, they still represent meaningful improvements that could enhance the user experience for many iPhone users. Overall, iOS 17 is expected to be a modest update, focused on stability and performance enhancements.

Mark Gurman, a well-known Apple reporter, has also shared his expectations for iOS 17. He believes that the update will bring improvements to the Find My and Wallet apps, but that it is unlikely to include major new features like the customizable Lock Screen introduced with iOS 16.

As always, Apple is expected to announce iOS 17 during its WWDC keynote on June 5. Developers will be able to access the first beta version of the update immediately after the keynote, with a public beta available in July. The update should be widely released in September, around the same time as the launch of new iPhones.

While these rumors may not be confirmed until the official announcement, it’s exciting to see what changes iOS 17 may bring to the iPhone. With a focus on stability and performance, it’s likely that the update will help to improve the overall functionality and user experience of the device. Whether you’re an avid iPhone user or just curious about what’s new in the tech world, iOS 17 is definitely something to look forward to.
