iOS 17 and Trend Micro App Compatibility

 

 

Apple's latest operating system, iOS 17, is here, and it's packed with exciting new features that promise to elevate your daily iPhone experience. Whether you're a long-time iPhone user or just stepping into the Apple ecosystem, these enhancements are designed to make your digital life more enjoyable and efficient. Let's dive into what iOS 17 has to offer.

 

 

What's New in iOS 17?

 

iOS 17 arrives just ahead of the iPhone 15 series, and it brings a plethora of new features to your device. Here are some highlights:

  • Contact Posters: This update to the Phone app allows you to control how you appear to others when making calls. You can even see transcriptions of voicemail messages in real time.
  • Messages: Enjoy improved search functionality, a more user-friendly layout, and enhanced audio messages with the ability to pause and speed up playback.
  • FaceTime: Leave video or audio messages when someone doesn't answer your call, and add fun video effects like Portrait mode or send expressive gestures.
  • Check In: This feature lets you inform someone of your arrival at a specific location, and it can even detect when you've reached home safely.
  • StandBy: When your iPhone is charging on its side, it can display the time, serve as a photo album, or show information that's easily visible from across the room.
  • AirDrop's NameDrop: Share contact details with a nifty animation when two iPhones are brought close together.
  • Improved Autocorrect: The keyboard gets smarter at fixing mistakes, recognizing speech, and adapting to your swearing preferences.
  • Maps: Download maps for offline use, a lifesaver when you're in areas with no cellular signal or traveling abroad.
  • Siri: You can now invoke Siri without saying "Hey Siri" before each command, and it supports multiple commands in one go.

Hey, glad you're back @claudiubotezatu! We're encouraging the upgrade to iOS 17 because it comes with fixes and extra security patches. Plus, we want to keep iOS users in the loop about which Trend Micro apps will roll smoothly on iOS 17.

@claudiubotezatu​ Probably, Apple pays a lot to the major softrware brands, newsmakers and influencers to spread their "promotion" bait. The idea is to force users to "update" by any means, and make the older phones overuse the batteries, with the following purchase of the newer i-phone.

The sole purpose of iOS 17 is to kill battaries of the older i-phones, and phase them out, forcing users to buy iPhone 15.

Anyone advertizing the "upgrade" to iOS 17 is a fraudster.

Hi @andreyporokhnyuk​,

We get it, and it's totally cool to have some doubts about software updates. Let's chat about these iOS updates for a sec:

  1. Battery Life: iOS updates are designed to improve device performance and enhance security. While it's true that newer updates might be optimized for the latest hardware, they are not intentionally designed to kill the batteries of older iPhones. Apple invests in software optimization to ensure that older devices continue to function properly with each new update.

  2. Phasing Out: Apple typically provides software updates for a few generations of iPhones to ensure users have access to the latest features and security patches. They do eventually phase out older devices, but this is a natural part of technology progression and is not solely aimed at forcing users to upgrade. 

  3. Upgrade Decisions: Whether or not to upgrade your iPhone should be a personal choice based on your needs and preferences. Apple doesn't force users to upgrade, and it's essential to research and consider the benefits of a new device before making any decision.

We respect your choice not to upgrade, but it's important to weigh the benefits and risks of outdated software.

Do you take us for fools? "Sony Timer" is not the first day on earth, and it is not sony, but Philips who invented it. Companies put tremendous efforts in developing timely degrading materials and weak points in structures. Apple and Samsung are known for years for damaging the firmware code for selectively phasing  out products by 1)increasing the battery consumption 2)overfilling the ROM with junk 3) creating a code becomming sluggish on specific models without a reasoon 4)and finally simply blocking the software distribution (Apple's original method).

So this month, iOS 17 has started the (1) phase with unprecedented rate of battery overconsumption of up to 120% from normal.

@andreyporokhnyuk Thanks for bringing this up! I've also read about these concerns, such as what you mentioned: increased battery consumption, ROM clutter, and sluggish performance. I understand where you're coming from; I'm also very cautious about upgrading my OS and considering the factors you mentioned. 

This will give fellow community members some insight when deciding whether to go for the update or not.
