Apple iOS 17.4 Beta: New Carplay feature, Battery settings

Recommended Posts



The buzz around ‘iOS 17.4 Beta’ is palpable, with Apple seeding the fourth beta to developers. This update is expected to be released to the public in early March, and it’s already making waves with its new features and changes.


One of the key highlights of iOS 17.4 Beta is the introduction of a new CarPlay feature. This feature allows users with compatible vehicles to view specific information about upcoming maneuvers through a "new instrument cluster experience". This is a significant enhancement to the CarPlay experience, offering drivers more detailed navigation information.


Another noteworthy change is in the Battery settings. The update makes it easier for users to understand their iPhone’s battery health. Instead of showing a percentage, which could be ambiguous to some users, it now states the battery’s condition, i.e., "Normal". This change coincides with Apple’s announcement that iPhone 15 batteries perform better than initially expected.


iOS 17.4 Beta also includes updates to comply with the European Union’s Digital Markets Act (DMA) regulations. These changes are expected to have a significant impact on how iOS works in the EU.


With these updates, iOS 17.4 Beta is shaping up to be a significant release. But what are your thoughts? Do you think these new features and changes will enhance your iOS experience? We’d love to hear your views.
