Apple iOS 17 officially available to download with changes to Siri, FaceTime and Autocorrect




iPhone users rejoice — today’s the day to update to Apple’s latest operating system, iOS17, and unlock a slew of new features that promise to make the iPhone experience more personal and intuitive.

Apple first teased iOS17 at its annual Worldwide Developer Conference in early June, but you may have missed out on some of the details as the tech giant also unveiled its much-anticipated mixed-reality Vision Pro headset that same day.

iPhone users can update their systems to iOS17 by clicking on the Software Update section in the phone’s Settings app.

Of course, many users are in the habit of backing up important photos or files before downloading the latest software update – or waiting until the second version rolls out (likely in the coming weeks) if they’re afraid of any bugs that could come with the first version of a next-generation mobile operating system.

Here are some of the buzziest and most-anticipated new features that iPhone users can expect from iOS17.

Live Voicemail and FaceTime video messages

One of the buzziest new features, dubbed Live Voicemail, will transcribe a caller’s message in real time, giving iPhone users the decision whether to ignore the call or take it while the other person is still on the line and leaving their message.

Unknown numbers will go directly to Live Voicemail when you have the “Silence Unknown Callers” setting turned on.
