News Synopsis

Apple is reportedly developing its iOS 17 software update and other new updates that will be launched this year. Some of the tech giant's open-source documentation addressing iOS 17 has gotten updates, reports 9To5Mac.

Every year, the company began adding references to impending iOS, macOS, and watchOS upgrades to its numerous open-source repositories. Future versions are sometimes referred to as "TBA" by the iPhone maker in order to obscure their actual version numbers.

The following operating systems are scheduled to be released at Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June this year— iOS 17, macOS 14, watchOS 10, iPadOS 17 and tvOS 17. The arrival of the company's Reality Pro headset, which will offer the company's range a fully new operating system, is planned to coincide with the updates this year.

However, the tech giant has not yet revealed the dates for WWDC and it is still unclear whether the conference will be a hybrid in-person and virtual event like last year or a completely in-person event, the report said

Since the improvements might be released in a point update like iOS 17.1 or later, Gurman stated earlier this month that Apple was aiming for the changes to be ready as part of an "update to iOS 17." In March 2024, the law will be fully in force.

The following version of CarPlay, which would enable numerous displays, widgets, and interaction with vehicle features including the instrument panel, climate controls, and FM radio, was previewed by Apple at WWDC 2022.

The connected iPhone is probably going to need iOS 17 or later when the first vehicles with support for the next-generation CarPlay experience are introduced in late 2023, according to Apple. Acura, Audi, Ford, Honda, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Porsche, Volvo, and other automakers were listed as committed automakers by Apple.
