Apple is less than two weeks away from announcing iOS 17, which is expected to bring new features to iPhone users. We’ve already heard many rumors about the update’s new features, such as Apple Music lyrics on the lock screen, the redesigned Control Center, and more. Now, a concept created by designer Nicholas Ghigo shows what those rumored features could look like.

Rumors and concept about iOS 17
Ghigo created a cool video to demonstrate their concept in action. According to recent rumours, Apple will expand the lock screen customization options even further with iOS 17. A leaker claimed Apple is working on new options for fonts and wallpapers, as well as real-time lyrics for Apple Music songs without having to unlock the phone.
This iOS 17 concept shows just that, imagining not only the new font styles but also the song lyrics in real-time on the lock screen. Ghigo also envisioned customizable lock screen shortcuts and new system icons in his concept, but there are no rumors about that.
Bloomberg reported earlier this year that Apple is working on “big changes” to the Control Center for iOS 17. The current design was introduced with iOS 11 and has not changed since then. Users can swipe down from the top-right of the screen for quick access to Wi-Fi and cellular settings, media controls, and shortcuts to some of the system’s apps.
It’s not clear from the rumors what will change in iOS 17’s Control Center, but Ghigo envisions a slightly refreshed look with custom controls. Other features that have not been rumored but are part of the concept are the ability to lock any app with Face ID and history in the Calculator app.

Alongside these rumors, iOS 17 is also expected to get revamped wallet and health apps, a new grid view that lets users easily switch between lock screen wallpapers, and a journal app from Apple. For users residing in the European Union, this may be the first iOS release to support third-party apps installed from outside the App Store.
iOS 17 and other software updates will be announced at the opening event of WWDC 2023 on June 5 at 10am PDT.
