This week, Apple introduced the world to iOS 17 and after seeing the Keynote, we tested it extensively to find out all the changes. Aunque hay unas cuantas funciones con las que sentimos cierta sensación de déjà vu porque la realidad es que estaban presentes en Android, con otras se nos pusieron los dientes largos (so bien es cierto que en la premiera versión algunas no estaban todavía disponible): these are iOS 17 Features I’d Like to See on Android.
contact travel mugs
Until now, we could complete the profile of a contact that we saw when they called us, but with iOS 17, Apple is giving a twist allowing Let’s be the ones creating our own token (called attach) to share with our contacts
Besides, with a poster you gain optionsbecause for effects, it’s quite reminiscent of the process of setting up the lock screen in the sense that you can add effects, as well as play with fonts and colors.
It would be interesting if contact posters arrived on Android to be able to personalize our file, standardizing the experience both between ecosystems and for applications such as WhatsApp, Telegram, Hangouts, Messages, Zoom, Teams, among others.
Separate profiles in the browser
Some have two different phones for business and personal use, others opt for a dual card terminal and then there are people like me who have one phone for all but multiple email accounts (including work). But in the end, when we’re browsing in the same device using Google, we’re likely to be doing so through an account and that’s where it all comes together. And if we do it without counting, it mixes the same thing.
That’s why Safari, Apple’s native browser, allows keep navigation separate between professional and personal profileseach with its own history, passwords, extensions, tabs, cookies and bookmarks, among others.
Given Google’s weight in browsing and email, one of the most needed implementations is bring the Chrome desktop experience closer to other devices such as mobiles
Sensitive content warning
Before sending photos and videos, iOS 17 will offer the possibility to blur the preview before choosing to view the content, something that is especially useful for sensitive content. This feature will be integrated into Messages, AirDrop, Posters, FaceTime and third-party apps and is part of the iOS communications security suite.
I hope this feature will come to Android as soon as possible and it can be used for apps like whatsapp or some apps private messages… so some people feel free to blur their full or partial nudes (insert eggplant emoji here) when sharing them so that the unexpected does not happen surprise you with the situation.
What yes what Android already had the ability to transmit data by bringing mobiles closer via NFC and Android Beam (as well as apps like Bump or Popl), the problem is that Google decided to abandon Beam in 2018, so that’s no longer a possibility now.
Apple presented it as one of the novelties of iOS 17 and to see it in action, in practice sharing a wireless contact natively is something very useful: just bring your iPhone closer to another iPhone or Apple Watch to pass These posters, phone numbers, emails…I wish this feature would come back to Android as part Sharing nearby.
