Here is a list of iPhones compatible with iOS 17

At the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), Apple unveiled its latest software, iOS 17, which includes a range of useful features for communication and utility purposes.

The latest enhancements encompass interactive widgets and a contact sharing functionality that can be activated by proximity between two mobile devices.

The feature referred to as ‘NameDrop’ by Apple allows users to choose specific phone numbers or email addresses they wish to share. These selections can be instantly shared along with their ‘Contact Poster’.

Additionally, the iMessage platform offers users the option to leave a voicemail or voice message in the event that the intended recipient is unavailable. Furthermore, there is a check-in functionality that enables friends to inform one another of their safe arrival at their destination.

Regarding the matter of reaching home, users of Apple Maps can now conveniently store offline maps. One can conveniently save a designated region of a map onto their iPhone device and subsequently navigate through it without an internet connection. Users can access relevant information such as operating hours and ratings through place cards. Additionally, turn-by-turn directions for various modes of transportation including driving, walking, cycling, or public transportation are available.

Furthermore, iOS 17 incorporates a nightstand functionality that operates independently of a MagSafe connector or dock. Additionally, there is a unique feature that enables users to transform their pictures into animated stickers within iMessage.
