We still have to be patient until the release of iOS 17. Which iPhones are getting the big update from Apple? We are on the home straight to iOS 16.5, which is not long in coming. Unlike iOS 17, the next big iPhone update. Many details will probably be presented to us at the developer conference from June 5th to 9th.

According to previous rumors, the update will receive many useful and useful functions. Even a new, in-house app is to be donated to the operating system.

iOS 17: Which iPhones will get the update?

The iPhone 15 will probably ship with iOS 17 from the factory. Aside from the upcoming flagship, Apple has not yet released any wording on which iPhones will receive the update to iOS 17.

However, the manufacturer from Cupertino provides its smartphones with software updates for a very long time.

According to previous rumors, the new operating system should also be distributed to all iPhones that are supplied with iOS 16.

According to this, the following iPhones will receive iOS 17 :

  • All iPhone 15 models
  • iPhone 14, 14 Plus, 14 Pro, 14 Pro Max
  • iPhone SE 3
  • iPhone 13, 13 Mini, 13 Pro, Pro Max
  • iPhone 12, 12 Mini, 12 Pro, 12 Pro Max
  • iPhone SE 2
  • iPhone 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max
  • iPhone XS, XS Max
  • iPhone XR
  • iPhone X
  • iPhone 8, 8Plus

As usual, older models like the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X will get a stripped-down version of iOS 17. To date, the devices have had to do without certain functions of iOS 16, such as the cropping of motifs.

It is therefore conceivable that the six-year-old devices will no longer receive the next update in 2024.

Release: When will iOS 17 be released?

We will have to be patient until the final release of iOS 17. The presentation of the new version will take place at the developer conference, from June 5th to 9th, 2023.

Based on the update cycle of the last three years, iOS 17 will probably be released for all compatible iPhones in mid-September.

iOS 17: when does the beta start?

Shortly after the presentation at WWDC 2023, the first beta version will probably be distributed to the developers.

Last year, the public beta was released a month after the presentation of iOS 16. It is quite possible that Apple will only release the public beta version again many weeks after the developer conference.
