AirDrop y NameDrop

In iOS 17, Apple enhances AirDrop capabilities with new features. NameDrop, one of these features, allows users to effortlessly share contact information by touching their iPhones or an iPhone and an Apple Watch together. This gesture can also initiate content sharing or SharePlay, allowing users to enjoy music, movies or games together in close proximity. These updates promise to make sharing on iOS devices even more intuitive and engaging.

Smarter text input

l EAutocorrect has been comprehensively updated with a transformative language model to improve word prediction. You can now correct more types of grammatical errors and provide predictive text recommendations inline as users type.


This feature offers users a full screen experience with visibly pleasing information designed to be viewed from a distance when iPhone is placed on its side and charging. StandBy is perfect for a nightstand, kitchen counter or desk and can be customized to display a range of clock styles, favorite photos or widgets, including Smart Stacks, which display the right widgets at the right time. With support for Live Activities, Siri, incoming calls, and larger notifications, StandBy makes iPhone even more useful when viewing from a distance. When charging with MagSafe, StandBy remembers the user’s preferred view. Activating StandBy is very easy and can be done at any time by touching the screen. Also, on iPhone 14 Pro with always-on display, it’s always available.


new app that helps iPhone users reflect on and practice gratitude through journaling, which has been shown to improve well-being. Using on-device machine learning, personalized suggestions can be provided to inspire a user’s journal entry. Suggestions are intelligently curated from recent activity, including photos, people, places, workouts and more, making it easy to start a journal entry, and scheduled notifications can help establish a journal writing habit. With the ability to lock down the app, the use of on-device processing, and end-to-end encryption, Journal is designed to protect user privacy and ensure that no one, including Apple, can access user input. With the new Journaling Suggestions API, developers will be able to add journaling suggestions to their apps
