iOS 17 could be a less feature-rich update in favor of better stability for iPhones. After iOS 16 brought considerable novelties, Apple could change things this year and favor the improvement of stability. So there wouldn’t be many visual changes this year.
iOS 17 could introduce a new AR/VR app for Apple’s Reality Pro headset iPhone 15 Ultra would bring a better camera module and a more powerful SoC
The howtoisolve site isn’t a frequent source of Apple news, but it did manage to get its hands on some specific leaks last year. He reports today new information on iOS 17, in particular on the importance that Apple could give to augmented and mixed reality. Due to persistent bugs lately, the next major iPhone OS might put a heavy emphasis on stability.
iOS 17: Fewer features but more stability
According to howtoisolve, iOS 17 would have the internal code name of “Dawn”. In addition, Apple would strive to make the next major update of iOS more stable and efficient rather than integrating new features. However, this does not mean that there will be no novelties. In particular, we will see the arrival of a new dedicated AR / VR application to support the brand’s Reality Pro headset.
Apple is also reportedly planning to make improvements to its apps, including Apple Music, Mail, Find My and Home. Minor changes could also be made to Shape, Wallet and Apple Pay Later.

iPhone 15 Ultra: A better photo module and a new, more powerful SoC
More importantly, the site says that clues showing that Apple is working on six iPhone models having the Dynamic Island have been found. These are the four iPhone 15 models, as well as last year’s iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. It was also added that the entire iPhone 15 lineup will feature a USB-C port, which is no surprise given that Apple has already indirectly confirmed this.
This year could also see Apple differentiate the iPhone 15 Pro Max (or iPhone 15 Ultra) from the iPhone 15 Pro. Apart from the size, the most expensive iPhone would probably offer a better camera module and a boosted A17 Bionic SoC associated with a better cooling system.
What do you think of Apple’s decision to prioritize stability over new features for iOS 17?
