List Of iPhone And iPad Models Compatible With iOS 17 And iPadOS 17

Both Windows and Android have supported sideloading on their respective platforms since their inception. Apple’s iPadOS is not always one-to-one with iOS in terms of features, but sometimes there is overlap. For example, you can add Home app controls to turn accessories on or off without having to unlock your iPad.
Stage Manager, a feature intended to unlock greater multitasking flexibility on the iPad, has proven underwhelming and at times buggy since it debuted last year. Federighi mentioned that Stage Manager will add more flexibility on window sizing and positioning in iPadOS 17. IOS 17 and iPadOS 17 are major updates that bring a boatload of new changes to the table. The company showed off its latest revamped Control Center with a bunch of customization options along with a plethora of updated apps.

There are also more expressive ways to interact during FaceTime calls with animations through simple gestures you perform during calls. You’ll soon be able to use photos in your library and convert them into stickers, which can then be sent in the Messages app. This new Live Stickers feature with iPadOS 17 will add more depth to conversations with the various effects you can use.
This lets you add widgets to the home screen, assign different focus modes to specific wallpapers, change the fonts of the clock and text and more. There’s also a pretty cool Live Photo feature that animates your wallpaper when you wake the iPad. Finally, Live Activities are coming to the iPad, which lets apps give you real-time updates on the lock screen — like seeing sports scores update or where your food delivery order is. Apple is revamping many of its own apps, bringing more information to the small screen, in order to enhance the experience for Apple Watch users. Per usual, new watch faces will make an appearance, and Apple will also bring more fitness, activity, and wellness tracking to the watch.
As always, Apple aims to allow as many older iPads as possible to support the latest version, without compromising performance on hardware too weedy to do it justice. Like all of Apple’s operating system updates, iPadOS 17 is free to download and use. Apple on May 18 released iOS 16.5, delivering several sports-related enhancements for Apple News, a new Pride Celebration wallpaper, and several important bug and security fixes. The expanded Lockdown Mode increases security to help protect against sophisticated cyber attacks. Audio messages are now transcribed, so you can read them in the moment and listen later.
And last, the iPad will be able to display Live Activities just like iOS. What’s interesting to note here is that unlike iPhones that will support iOS 17’s new StandBy feature, iPadOS 17 doesn’t get a similar feature while the tablet is charging. This would’ve made for a neat smart display of sorts, but these new interactive widgets with iPadOS 17 should suffice as an alternative for now given how they can be added to the lock and home screens.
