What does it contain and is it obtainable?
If you have an iPhone, you may have received a new iOS update, iOS 17.2, just days after updating to iOS 17.1.2. This update includes not only important security fixes but also a number of new features. One of the most anticipated features is the Journal app, which allows users to write about their life moments and practice gratitude. The app provides prompts and suggestions for journaling, including photos from the camera roll or questions about recent experiences. The Journal app is not available for iPads.
Another major change in iOS 17.2 is the Weather app, which now includes an interactive moon calendar, a wind map, and various widgets for precipitation, forecast, air quality, etc. In the Messages app, there is a button that takes you to the first unread message in a group conversation. Users can also now edit their Memoji’s body shape. Apple Music users will find a new Favorite Songs Playlist, and the Use Listening History setting can be turned off in Focus mode.
Other minor updates include expanding sharing options for AirDrop, a new Digital Clock Widget, improved AutoFill for PDFs, new keyboard layouts for 8 Sámi languages, sensitive content warnings for stickers in Messages, and Siri’s ability to access and log data on the Health app using voice commands.
Not all devices are able to get the iOS 17.2 update. Older iPhones, such as those older than the XS and XR models (iPhone 8 and older), are not compatible. Otherwise, as long as you have enough storage space, it is recommended to update your device to receive the latest security fixes and new features.
