Watch this hands-on video walkthrough for a complete overview of all the new iOS 17 features for your iPhone that are available with Apple’s update.
If you thought iOS 17 is about reliability and performance with little new features to show for it, think twice because this is one of the most delightful iPhone updates ever. You get a few big features that get the press rolling, like StandBy and interactive widgets, but nothing on the level of some of the previous iOS releases.
But scratch a little deeper and you’ll discover tons of little improvements, tweaks in every corner of the operating system that’ll make using your iPhone easier.

Or, watch the comprehensive hands-on video walkthrough by our own Michale Billig of this post which showcases over a hundred new features, big and small, in Apple’s latest update. And don’t forget to let us know down in the comments or on our socials which ones you like the most, and why.
