Apple has rolled out the eagerly anticipated iOS 17.3 and iPadOS 17.3, setting a new standard for mobile operating systems. True to their commitment to accessibility, these updates are universally accessible to eager users, with no staggered release drama reminiscent of the Google sphere.
A standout feature in the iOS 17.3 update is the groundbreaking Stolen Device Protection. Offering an extra layer of security, this feature becomes a guardian if your device falls into the wrong hands, along with your passcode. With Stolen Device Protection, accessing saved passwords demands the authentication of Face ID or Touch ID.
Meanwhile, altering crucial settings like your Apple ID password or device passcode undergoes a security delay, safeguarded by biometric authentication. This feature sparks a revelation—why has this not been a standard before? It’s a game-changer that makes absolute sense. As Apple users revel in this security upgrade, the hope is that Google and Android device manufacturers swiftly take inspiration to fortify their side of the technological fence.
Beyond the realm of security, the update introduces a fresh wallpaper, elevates the collaborative spirit on Apple Music by allowing friends to co-create playlists (complete with emoji reactions), and opens up a world of entertainment with hotel support on AirPlay, enabling direct streaming to the TV in select hotels. Notably, Crash detection has undergone optimisation, ensuring a seamless and secure user experience. Embrace the future with Apple’s latest, where security and innovation converge for an unparalleled mobile journey.
