Last night, Apple released its latest version of the world’s most famous smartphone operating system. As previously leaked, Apple iOS 17.2 comes loaded with exciting new features and bug fixes, as the Cupertino giant had to address a series of lingering issues, which were not resolved in the minor 17.1.2 update. With this new iOS 17.2 release, you can update your phone right away.

The update brings a multitude of new features, along with the necessary bug fixes. Notably, it resolves issues with wireless chargers in Toyota and BMW vehicles, which had been causing problems with NFC functionality.

Apple iOS 17.2 introduces new features and enhancements specifically for the iPhone. The most significant addition is the Journal app, designed to help users reflect on their everyday experiences and record treasured memories. Early reports indicate that users are enjoying this app, so let’s dive into all the new features and changes in iOS 17.2:


The new Journal app allows users to document their daily experiences, from mundane moments to major milestones, so they can practice gratitude and improve their well-being.

Writing suggestions intelligently cluster outings, photos, workouts, etc., into memorable moments that can be easily added to your journal.

Filters enable quick retrieval of bookmarked entries and those containing attachments for reviewing and reflecting on key life moments.

Scheduled notifications keep users on track with writing routines by reminding them to journal at desired days and times.

Journal entries can be locked with Touch ID or Face ID.

iCloud-synced journal entries are encrypted to maintain privacy.

Action Button

The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max’s action button can be configured to quickly translate phrases or engage in conversation with someone in another language.

Camera Enhancements in iOS 17.2

Spatial video recording is now possible on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, allowing users to relive memories in three dimensions through Apple Vision Pro.

The camera’s telephoto lens on these iPhone models now focuses more rapidly, better capturing small objects in the distance.


Users can jump straight to the first unread message in a conversation by tapping the date in the top-right corner.

The “Add Sticker” option in the contextual menu lets users quickly add stickers to messages.

Memoji bodies’ shapes can be modified.

Contact key verification displays automatic warnings, and contact verification codes help those facing exceptional digital threats confirm the identity of the person they’re talking to.


Precipitation details include daily forecasts for rain and snow for up to 10 days.

New widgets offer information on expected precipitation in the coming hour, the day’s weather forecast, sunrise and sunset times, and real-time data such as air quality, wind chill, and wind speed.

A static wind map provides current conditions, and a dynamic map for the next 24 hours is available if wind is forecasted.

An interactive lunar calendar allows users to easily check the moon’s phase on any given day.

Bug Fixes and Improvements in iOS 17.2

Apple Music’s favorite songs playlist offers quick access to these tunes.
