While Apple is yet to roll out the iOS 16.4 update, the Internet has been buzzing with news surrounding iOS 17. As per reports, the Cupertino-based tech company is gearing up to launch the new update very soon.
Apple will most likely make the announcement at Apple's annual developer's conference, which will likely be held in June.
Once Apple has made the announcement at the tech conference event, it will quickly roll out the beta version of the software for developers for testing. In a month or two after rolling out the beta version, Apple will then roll out iOS 17 for the general public.
Every iPhone usually gets 5 years of software updates, so iPhones released since 2018 such as iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone 11 series, iPhone 12 series, iPhone 13 series, and iPhone 14 series will get iOS 17 update on their phones.
The upcoming iOS 17 is reportedly codenamed 'Dawn' and is currently under testing and development.

In iOS 17, the Health app offers new mental health features, including the ability for users to log their daily moods and momentary emotions.
