iOS 17.4 and More

At our 15th March meeting, we talked about the new features in iOS 17.4 and Robert shared some tips. Members also discussed a number of other topics.

iOS 17.4

We looked at the new features in iOS 17.4 including:

  • New emoji.
  • Podcast transcripts. DaveK showed us that this feature allows you to search for words mentioned in a show and then jump straight to that part of the audio.
  • Songs found using the Control Centre music recognition option can now be added to Apple Music.
  • A stopwatch live activity is now available.
  • The purchase history in the App Store now combines all purchases made on your Apple ID including music, TV shows and subscriptions as well as apps.

Mac Rumors have a useful summary of all the new features.

Other Tips

  • How to manage the dynamic island on recent iPhones including switching between multiple activities.
  • The new Listen to Page feature in Safari on iOS that reads the main content of web pages aloud.
