As 2024 approaches, Apple users can anticipate a suite of new features for iOS 17 and iOS 18 anticipated to roll out over the year. Anticipated iOS Features for iPhone in 2024 as below.
Apple aims to combat theft with its new Stolen Device Protection feature, which mandates Face ID or Touch ID for critical actions if the device's passcode is compromised. This includes actions such as accessing iCloud Keychain, applying for an Apple Card, disabling Lost Mode, and more. For certain sensitive tasks, a one-hour delay is implemented after biometric verification, although this is waived in familiar locations. This opt-in feature will be available with the iOS 17.3 beta and fully detailed upon the update's official release.
