The first innovation can be found in the phone app. There are now so-called "contact posters" that are displayed on the screen when a call comes in. So there is now a personalized telephony experience, so to speak. There is also the "Live Voicemail" feature with iOS 17, which creates a transcript with the messages sent to the mailboxprocurrent messages - live during the call. Matching the topic, there is a "mailbox" for FaceTime from iOS 17, where you can leave a video message if the person you are talking to is not available.

Next up is the news app. Search is improved, and there is now a "catch-up" button in group chats to go back to the last unread message. There are minor improvements in the display of the location in a chat, "Quick Reply" for quick answers by swiping.

A new feature is "Check In", a security feature to notify friends when you are on the road and to have them automatically notified if you do not arrive at the desired location within the given time. Then the location, battery and signal strength will be sent to the friend.
