Apple iOS 17.3 Release Date: Awesome iPhone Upgrade Coming Soon

Apple released iOS 17.3 to the general public on Jan. 22, more than a month after the company released iOS 17.2. The latest update brings some new features, like Stolen Device Protection, as well as some important bug fixes to your iPhone.  To download the update, go to Settings > General > Software Update, tap Install Now and follow the onscreen prompts.

Stolen Device Protection

Apple’s iOS 17.3 introduces Stolen Device Protection for iPhones, aiming to safeguard users and their data. According to CNET’s David Lumb, this feature necessitates repeated biometric authentication, such as Face ID and Touch ID, for accessing sensitive settings and information, like the Apple ID password. The Security Delay mechanism is employed when attempting to modify these settings. When outside a familiar location, users will be prompted to provide biometric information twice; initially and then again after an hour. While Stolen Device Protection only covers a limited number of settings, users are advised to take additional measures to secure other personal information, such as social media accounts. Although optional, Apple recommends enabling this security feature for all users.

In honor of Black History Month, iOS 17.3 brings a new wallpaper, called Unity Bloom, to all iPhones. According to Apple, the wallpaper shows an outline of flowers that will fill with color once the display is active.

Apple Music collaborative playlists are here at last

Apple’s latest iOS 17.3 update brings an exciting new feature to Apple Music subscribers – collaborative playlists. This feature enables multiple users to control and modify shared playlists on the music streaming platform. Furthermore, you can react to a song in a playlist that someone else created by using an emoji. This allows you to instantly convey your opinion about the song to the other members of the group who share the playlist with you. The new collaborative playlist feature is an excellent way for music lovers to come together and create a shared musical experience.

Here are the full release notes for iOS 17.3:
