Install iOS 17 Beta to Try StandBy

iOS 17 is packed with changes, big and small, but we want to highlight some of our favorites. One of them is a new feature called StandBy. 

StandBy mode is a new full-screen experience that pops up when you place your phone in landscape mode  when it's charging on a dock making it useful for when you have your phone on your nightstand or kitchen counter. 

When in StandBy mode, you can have your phone display a personalized clock, your favorite photos, or your favorite widgets. And yes, it includes Smart Stacks. 

There's also support for Siri which means you can ask it to show you things like the current weather at a glance and Live Activities which means you can track an order or the score of a game. There's also support for incoming calls and notifications.

    I would never install a beta on any primary use device. I would also wait for at least a couple revisions of a final release to eliminate the bugs found after a public release. Sometimes bugs just are not found until more devices start running the new OS.
