When Can You Get It? Mark your calendars! The downloads for iOS, iPadOS, and watchOS usually kick off around 6 pm UK time (1 pm in New York; 3 am in Sydney). The best part? Unlike some other manufacturers, Apple makes the update available to all eligible devices simultaneously, so you can dive right in.

Which Devices Are Compatible? Wondering if your Apple gear makes the cut? Here’s the scoop:

  • iOS 17: Compatible with all Apple smartphones from the iPhone XS (2018) onwards.
  • iPadOS 17: Available for all tablets from the 2017 iPad Pro 10.5-inch or the 2018 iPad (6th gen) onwards.
  • watchOS 10: Ready for action on all Apple Watches from Series 4 (2018) onwards.

How to Get It? Updating is a breeze! For iPhones and iPads, simply go to Settings > General > Software Update. Tap “install” if available, and let your device work its magic. You can also use a Mac or iTunes on a Windows computer for the update.

As for watchOS 10, you’ll need an iPhone XS or newer with iOS 17 installed first. Open the Watch app on your phone, head to General > Software Update, and follow the prompts. Don’t forget to place your smartwatch on the charger for the update to complete.

How Much Will It Cost? Good news—it’s on the house! Apple provides these updates free of charge. If anyone tries to charge you for them, it’s likely a scam.

iOS 17 Highlights:

  • Improved Keyboard Auto-Correct: Bid farewell to those frustrating typos as the keyboard learns from your corrections.
  • Contact Posters, Video Messages, and Live Voicemail: Add a personal touch to your calls with customizable contact posters. Plus, enjoy real-time voicemail transcription (initially available in the US and Canada) to screen calls effectively.
  • FaceTime Enhancements: Leave video voicemails, make video calls on your TV using an Apple TV box, and enjoy animated reactions with hand gestures.
  • Standby Mode: Transform your iPhone into a smart display while charging. Say goodbye to saying “Hey Siri” repeatedly with the new, more efficient voice assistant.
  • Offline Maps: Save areas in Apple Maps for offline access, just like Google Maps.
  • Safari Profiles: Manage multiple profiles in Apple’s Safari browser for a seamless browsing experience.
