Good news for iPhone users: iOS 17.1 update is now available in its stable version, bringing subtle yet significant improvements to enhance your overall experience.
Improved Compliance with ANFR Standards
The new update ensures that iPhone 12 is now fully compliant with the French National Frequency Agency's (ANFR) standards. This has been achieved by reducing the smartphone's emitted waves through the iOS 17.1 update, ensuring a safer user experience.
Open Banking API Support
For our UK users, you can now keep tabs on your bank balance right from your Apple Wallet. This comes with the new Open Banking API support, as long as your bank is compatible.
Continued File Transfers via AirDrop
Never worry about leaving Wi-Fi range when transferring files. iOS 17.1 allows for the continuation of file transfers via AirDrop over a cellular connection, even when you're not within Wi-Fi range.
System Improvements and Enhancements
The update also brings with it a host of system and native app optimizations, improvements, and bug fixes. This means smoother running of your device and less chance of encountering those annoying bugs.
But that's not all. iOS 17.1 brings some exciting new features to the table:
- Get better recommendations with the addition of favorites in Apple Music.
- Quickly launch a playlist with your favorite tracks with a long press on the app icon.
- Never forget the flashlight is on again with new on-screen indications, even for iPhone models that previously lacked this feature.
