Apple has brought offline maps to Apple Maps with the launch of iOS 17. This feature simplifies navigation in unfamiliar areas, cuts data usage, and helps to prevent getting lost in areas with weak network signals. Maps for areas of interest can be downloaded in advance when a data connection is available. Just keep in mind that real-time information like traffic incidents may not be available on offline maps.
Apple has just rolled out the much-anticipated iOS 17.0.3 update, primarily aimed at addressing the overheating concerns that have been discussed among iPhone users this week. Apple promptly responded to the issue, attributing it to software bugs rather than any design flaws with the iPhone 15 Pro.
Apple introduced Roadside Assistance via Satellite during its iPhone 15 launch event. This feature, an extension of Emergency SOS via satellite, can help iPhone users in emergencies when there is no cellular or Wi-Fi signal.
The dimensions of the iPhone 15 are slightly different than its predecessor, which means that iPhone 14 cases do not properly fit on the iPhone 15.
The iPhone 14 measures 147 mm x 72 mm x 7.8 mm, while the iPhone 15 measures 147.6 mm x 71.6 mm x 7.8 mm. Due to the difference in height between the two devices, older case models are not likely to fit on the iPhone 15.
Double Tap is a gesture-based feature designed exclusively for Apple Watch Series 9 and Ultra 2 models and later. It enables control of the watch with a double-tap of the thumb and index finger, making one-handed use easier during activities like dog-walking or carrying groceries.
