This is one of the most anticipated updates on iPhone: Apple recently agreed to comply with European demands, including ending its monopoly distribution of applications on iPhone. Since the second iOS 17.5 beta it has become possible to offer applications from the web – under conditions.

But this is not the only new thing that changes your iPhone with this update. We offer you an overview of some of the new features for your device – while Apple is pushing the second developer beta of iOS 17.5 on iPhones that have enabled the delivery of this type of updates.

With iOS 17.5 Beta 2, the first eligible developers will be able to offer apps from the web rather than from the App Store, or even alternative app stores. This makes it possible to almost completely avoid the costs linked to the platform.

However, there are quite strict conditions. The developer must be based in Europe, have been a member of the Developer Program for more than two years, and have an app with more than one million installs in the previous year. Application sideloading itself is a possibility since iOS 17.4. As we write these lines, however, we do not yet know of any altstore likely to take advantage of this new feature.

While Google and Apple have collaborated to avoid the risks For the privacy of trackers like AirTags, a change is coming with iOS 17.5: in fact, the iPhone will better integrate competing trackers, and will even be able to display the same type of alerts as those that are displayed if an AirTag follows you without your knowledge with them. Beyond Google, Tile, Chippolo, Samsung, Eufy and Pebblebee trackers would be supported.

If you're worried about breaking all the security on your iPhone before sending it to a repairer, iOS 17.5 is rather good news: this version launches a special mode for repairs which allows both ;#8217;avoid having to deactivate Find as well as the lock linked to your iCloud account.

Beyond that we see that the widget which shows the Podcasts becomes more aesthetic, allowing an automated change of the color of the “tile” depending on the illustration attached to the content.

Even though Apple now further differentiates iOS and iPadOS, the two operating systems share very large portions of code. Which often gives a preview of the new features to come on the next iPads. Thus we discover references in the code to a new Apple Pencil (4th generation), confirming the imminent arrival of a new accessory. A new menu integrated into iPadOS should finally provide more precise information on the tablet's battery status.
