Apple is set to release iOS 17 on September 18 and macOS Sonoma on September 26. After a summer filled with betas, the operating systems are finally ready for the public.

After the Wonderlust event on Tuesday, Apple released two new documents that list nearly every new feature coming to the new updates. Get the macOS Sonoma PDF or the iOS 17 PDF.

New features for iOS 17 include interactive widgets, StandBy mode, and new social upgrades like NameDrop and Contact Posters. macOS Sonoma gets access to iPhone widgets on the desktop, a new screensaver experience, and Game Mode.

Many features are shared across the ecosystem and aren't limited to iOS or macOS. These include Safari Profiles, video conferencing gestures, and locked private browsing mode.

Apple will release iOS 17, iPadOS 17, watchOS 10, and tvOS 17 on September 18. macOS Sonoma arrives on September 26.

    I miss the photography days of Apple desktop pictures and login screens. Apple had the best photography in the industry. I hope they go back to photos and photorealism UI elements.

    I don’t recall Apple ever releasing a PDF of a new operating system features in the past. This is very cool.

    I was excited to see hide my email for ApplePay. Nice! I’d created a bunch of fake of email addresses as a workaround… (e.g. a train company does need to harvest my details)
