Apple has released the third developer beta version of the future software updates iOS 17.1, watchOS 10.1, and macOS 14.1. These software updates provide new Apple Music and AirDrop features, as well as the new Double Tap feature on the Apple Watch Series 9 and Ultra 2, among other things.
Apple Music gets a new favourite feature, which will eventually fuel a new playlist of favourite content. Apple Music now allows you to create custom artwork for playlists without leaving the app.
AirDrop, which received a well-designed update in iOS 17.0, is now adding the anticipated feature of completing an extended AirDrop session over the internet upon leaving AirDrop range.
In iOS 17, Apple is also improving one of its most popular features. In iOS 17.1, StandBy mode adds additional detailed controls in Settings, including the ability to leave it on when the display is resting.
iOS 17.1 and its associated OS updates add to the list of features to be released. The list includes Apple’s new Journal app, among other things.
