iPhone 15 iOS 17 leaks suggest massive changes

Les fuites de l'iPhone 15 iOS 17 suggèrent des changements massifs

While Apple is still hard at work fixing bugs that have appeared in iOS 16 since its release, that hasn't stopped it from working on the next operating system. Not even a month into 2023, we've seen some leaks about what we can expect from Apple's changes to the iPhone 15 with iOS 17.

iOS 17 leaked on iPhone 15

The new operating system is codenamed Dawn. Information from the leak suggests that it will be similar to iOS 16, and that Apple is not planning a massive overhaul for this year's version. The new operating system will be supported by six Apple iPhone models that feature Dynamic Island. This will include iOS 17 for the iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max, and the next four iPhone 15 models.

There will be some notable changes, despite no change in appearance, including upgrades for the Music app related to how users will navigate the app. There will also be relatively minor changes to the Mail, Reminders, Files, Fitness, Wallet, and Find My apps in iOS 17, so there won't be too many changes.

Significant changes are expected in the Home app of iOS 17. But, unfortunately, the leaker was unable to share essential details about the changes, so we will have to wait for more details to see on that one -this.

The leak also contained information about the iPhone 15 with iOS 17, specifically that all four release models will have USB-C ports. Of course, it's not a recent development that Apple is moving towards USB-C, but the leak shared something interesting. Two iPhone models will support data transfer speeds similar to USB 3.2″ technology. This means that the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will have transfer speeds similar to the Lightning port, despite its phaseout.

The leaked information was shared on HowToiSolve by LeaksApple Pro, who suggested that the new operating system is set to launch alongside the iPhone 15 sometime in the fall of this year. LeaksApplePro has a history of sharing accurate information, so there's a good chance this is all true. However, there is no way to confirm this leak. So take all of this with a pinch of salt, although too much salt may not be necessary.

It is assumed that Apple decided to make only a few cosmetic changes to its new operating system because it is spending its time and resources on other things. Apple is developing its mixed reality headset and the software needed to power it. It was leaked, along with the iOS 17 news, that there would be a dedicated app in the operating system, similar to the Watch app, “but with a lot more features” for the mixed reality headset.

All of our questions will likely be answered when the new version of the iPhone and operating system is announced later this year. Until then, keep looking for other information leaks if you're curious.
