Apple today seeded the first betas of upcoming iOS 17.5 and iPadOS 17.5 updates to developers for testing purposes, with the software coming two weeks after Apple released iOS 17.4 and iPadOS 17.4.


Registered developers are able to opt into the betas by opening up the Settings app, going to the Software Update section, tapping on the "Beta Updates" option, and toggling on the iOS 17 or iPadOS 17 Developer Beta. An Apple ID associated with a developer account is required to download and install the beta.

Most of the features that Apple promised would be coming in iOS 17 have now been released, but iOS 17.5 is expected to introduce additional app ecosystem changes in the European Union. App developers will be able to offer apps for download on the iPhone directly from their websites, in addition to through app marketplaces.

Well I’m not sure what else they added yet besides some EU changes, but it seems like he stands for emotionally unbalanced more than anything. 🤪
But I’m sure safaris snappier!!

“With iOS 17.5, we’ve made iPhone even more personal and intuitive than ever before by more deeply considering the features we all rely on every single day,” said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering. “Phone, FaceTime, and Messages are central to how we communicate, and this release is packed with even more updates we think our users are going to love. We’ve also introduced AirDrop Ultra with new ways to share, autocorrect gets almost better, and we’re introducing almost-new experiences with Journal+ and StandBye, plus so much more than ever. We can’t wait for everyone to try it.”

It does feel a whole
Lot better. Could be placebo, but oh, I’m using the mic option and now you get like a blue hue and line blinks blue

Oh, it depends what app you’re in and the Notes app that hue is yellow unless it’s always been like that I never noticed

Does anyone know if 17.5 will let a watch running 9.6.3 connect? 17.4 and on blocks a watch running 9.6.3.
