A leveling feature helps ensure your shots are perfectly aligned, while the ability to lock white balance in video recording prevents unwanted color shifts. These tweaks can elevate your photography and videography game. If you don’t have Grid mode enabled before upgrading, this level line looks to be off by default, but if you currently use Grid mode, it is enabled by default. You can turn it on in the Camera section of the Settings app.


Simplified Cropping

Get instant information with visual lookup. Take a photo or a video of laundry symbols, car warning lights, or even food, and iOS 17 will provide explanations, making everyday tasks more manageable. With this, you can easily look up recipes for your favorite foods and also be informed about your car warning lights using only a photo or video of them. 


Safari Improvements 

Safari receives a boost in privacy with advanced tracking and fingerprint protection settings. Additionally, you can now have web pages read aloud, making it easier to consume content. New widgets for your reading list are also available.


Passcode Flexibility 

Change your iPhone’s passcode with confidence. iOS 17 introduces a “forgot passcode” option after three days, allowing you to revert to the previous code if needed.


Enhanced Markup Tools 

Dive into creative markup with new pen options. iOS 17 introduces a variety of pens, including a fountain pen and a watercolor-like tool, offering more ways to express your ideas.


iOS 17 may have introduced major features, but its hidden gems are what truly make it shine. Explore these lesser-known features to make the most of your iPhone experience. iOS 17 is a game-changer.
