The business has reportedly made release candidates (RCs) available for their next software upgrades, which are tested for a week in order to identify any serious bugs, according to MacRumors. This time, the roll out date is confirmed due to a specific feature in iOS 17.1 for iPhone 12 models in France.
Although iOS 17.1 does not have the Journal app, it does provide several useful enhancements. You may now continue transferring huge AirDrop files over the internet and leave the area while it works.
Additionally, you can simply favourite music on Apple Music, take use of new StandBy mode choices, and anticipate enhanced screen time across all devices. Along with bug fixes, this update addresses persistent pictures on the new iPhone 15 models and search difficulties in Messages.
