For iPad users, iOS 17 will include the Health app, expanded widget functionality, and lock screen customization options.

Notable features for iPhones include leaving video messages if their FaceTime call goes unanswered, akin to a voicemail. This feature includes access to various video effects just like a regular FaceTime call.

There is a new Standby mode while their phone is charging in a horizontal position. During this mode, the phone can serve as a clock, display a photo slideshow, or operate widgets.

The upcoming iOS 17 will bring Adaptive Audio to AirPods Pro, which adjusts media volume and noise cancellation based on the user's environment.

iOS 17 will also introduce a Conversation Awareness mode that tailors audio by adjusting playback volume and enhancing voices from individuals in close proximity.
