  • The first public beta of iOS 17 has been released, and it includes new features that weren’t disclosed in the main iOS 17 keynote announcement.

  • Other new features include better dual-SIM support, expanded call history, and more.

iOS powers all iPhones and also forms the base for iPadOS, which powers all iPads. As such, Apple really puts thought into what features get added to iOS, preferring to wait it out and polish the feature before rolling it out to millions of users. At WWDC 2023, Apple announced iOS 17 and all the new features it is coming with. With the release of iOS 17’s first public beta, Apple has some more features that it was saving as a surprise, including the ability to take scrolling screenshots and bilingual Siri.

As spotted by Techcrunch, Apple is introducing some more new features with the release of the first public betas of iOS 17 and iPadOS 17.
