Apple has introduced an array of features in iOS 17 designed to make messaging a more engaging and streamlined experience. The update is touted to enhance daily communication by allowing users to express themselves in new ways, find messages faster, and share content in innovative methods.
In a move towards enhancing safety, iOS 17 now includes an automatic ‘Check In’ feature. This function sends a notification to a designated contact as soon as the user arrives at a specified destination, be it their home or another location.
The purpose is to keep friends or family members informed and reassured about the user’s safety.
