Apple is about to release the latest update for iPhone users, iOS 17.2. This update will bring some exciting new features for iPhone models, including the addition of Journal, an app that will allow users to write a daily journal on their handset.
However, not all features will be making it to the update. Apple has decided to cut the collaborative playlists for Apple Music due to concerns over abuse and spam. The company is working on a way to limit the number of “pending requests” a user can have, in order to eventually implement this feature in the future.
One of the most anticipated improvements will be for the telephoto camera on the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max, which will have improved focusing in the new iOS 17.2 update. This will result in better quality telephoto pictures and make it easier to capture small faraway objects.
Additionally, the update will also make iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 models compatible with the updated Qi2 wireless charging standard, allowing for faster wireless charging speeds of up to 15W without the need for expensive MagSafe certified chargers.
The release notes for the iOS 17.2 Release Candidate for developers also mentioned that iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro Max users will see improved telephoto camera focusing speed, further enhancing the camera capabilities of these models.
Furthermore, the update will enable the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max to take spatial videos, providing an immersive 3D experience for viewers when viewed with the upcoming Vision Pro spatial computer headset, which is expected to be released possibly as soon as next March.
Overall, the iOS 17.2 update is set to bring a range of enhancements and new features for iPhone users, further improving the functionality and capabilities of the latest iPhone models.
