1. Downloading maps for offline use

WHAT IS ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI)?

My personal favorite feature introduced in iOS 17 is the ability to download Apple maps. By downloading maps, you can now find your way and use your GPS even if you end up without phone service. 

Now, you can select any area on Apple Maps and save it for offline use. This is a great feature if you know you’ll be traveling through higher elevations where phone service can be spotty, making sure you can still find your way around.

Apple’s Live Voicemail is one of the most exciting features in iOS 17. It transcribes what someone is saying in real time as they leave their voicemail message. By using it, you can know what someone wants to call you about and whether it’s an important phone call. Best of all, Live Voicemail allows you to answer the call while the voicemail is being left.

3. Visual Lookup

One of the most interesting features of iOS 17 that I’ve already gotten a ton of use out of is Visual Lookup. While you may not be able to decipher what’s in the background of your photos, your iPhone can now. Visual Lookup allows you to take a photo and search for anything in the background of the image. A famous place, a dog breed or even an unknown flower — Visual Lookup will tell you about anything you can see.

IOS 17 makes it even easier to activate Siri. Now, you can just say “Siri” to activate Apple’s voice assistant. While this may seem like a small change, it’s something that Siri fans have been asking for ever since the assistant came out with the iPhone 4S way back in 2011.

Standby is a new feature introduced with iOS 17 that allows you to turn your iPhone into a nightstand clock. While your phone charges horizontally, Standby will show you the clock face, the calendar, and the weather. You can also customize standby to show photos, widgets or nearly anything you want on the iPhone’s screen while it’s horizontal.
