This iOS 17 leak shows big changes to key iPhone appsMay 16, 2023
According to the latest leak from Analyst941 on Twitter, some of Apple’s most popular apps will be getting a complete makeover. The tipster reveals the changes to be seen on wallpapers, Apple’s wallet and health app.
The Health app will display a new screen that will show a series of tiles with coloured graphs, tables, etc., filled with data inside each section instead of a simple list. The tipster on the tweet wrote: “There will obviously be VISUAL data inside the squares – I’m just too lazy to do all that. Imagine coloured graphs, tables, etc., filled with data inside each section”. There are also rumours that the Health app is coming to watchOS 10 and iPadOS 17, and the streamlined interface makes sense for both larger and smaller screens.
Apple Wallet, according to the mockup, will get the biggest change. Apple is predicted to be introducing a whole new layout with a navigation bar at the bottom of the screen. Several new features include a swipe to search, a sorted tab for credit and pass, a dedicated app for Apple Cash, and much more will have a much cleaner organisation, with smarter and simpler navigation aided by menus and buttons.
In addition, Analyst941 shares an image of the new Wallpaper tab in Settings with a grid layout that displays 9+ wallpapers at once and lets you easily rearrange your favourite similar to the customisable Lock Screen interface. iPhone users can easily share, duplicate or delete wallpapers by swiping up in a single view.
Earlier, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman stated that iOS 17 is coming with nice features for iPhone users, hinting at changes in Control Center, additions to Dynamic Island functionality and an active Widgets. Apple’s WWDC happening in about a month's time will satisfy our curiosity. Several updates like iPadOS 17, watchOS 10, and macOS 14 will be released along with the long-rumoured AR headset and the 15-inch MacBook.
