Apple Top 3 new IOS features 2024

The year is now 2024 and numerous new Apple iOS 17 and iOS 18 are already in the works


Apple is launching many features in 2024 some of them include: Stolen Device Protection, collaborative Apple Music playlists, AirPlay on hotel room TVs, app sideloading in the EU, next-generation CarPlay, roadside assistance via satellite outside of the U.S., RCS support in the Messages app, and generative AI for Siri.

Stolen Device Protection


The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this year about burglars snooping on an iPhone user’s passcode before snatching the device, frequently in public locations like clubs. With the passcode, the thief may then alter the victim’s Apple ID password, disable Find My, and other features to acquire complete control of the iPhone. The burglar can also utilize the passcode to obtain access to passwords and other sensitive information saved in iCloud Keychain.

When the feature is turned on, Face ID or Touch ID authentication is strictly required for the following actions, with a passcode fallback no longer available:

  • Accessing passwords or passkeys saved in iCloud Keychain
  • Applying for a new Apple Card or viewing an Apple Card’s virtual number
  • Turning off Lost Mode
  • Erasing all content and settings
  • Taking certain Apple Cash and Apple Card Savings actions in the Wallet app
  • Using payment methods saved in Safari
  • Using your iPhone to set up a new device

Stolen Device Protection is an opt-in feature available in the Settings app under Face ID & Passcode, and it is compatible with all iPhones running iOS 17. iPhone owners who upgrade to the iOS 17.3 beta can try out the functionality.

Next-Generation Apple CarPlay


Apple promised that the first automobiles with CarPlay capability would be unveiled in late 2023, and it delivered on that promise with only days to spare. Aston Martin and Porsche showcased the next-generation CarPlay experience in some of their future automobiles earlier this month.

Aston Martin has announced that its first vehicles with next-generation CarPlay would be available in 2024, although there is no particular date or information available.

In June 2022, Apple revealed the next-generation CarPlay experience, promising greater integration with the instrument cluster and temperature settings, support for multiple dashboard displays, a dedicated FM radio app, widgets, and more. The user interface may be customized for each car type and automaker’s brand identification.

Apple claimed committed automakers included Acura, Audi, Ford, Honda, Infiniti, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lincoln, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Polestar, Porsche, Renault, and Volvo when it initially unveiled next-generation CarPlay last year. Aside from the inclusion of Aston Martin, it’s unclear if this list has altered since it was first announced.

Roadside Assistance via Satellite Outside U.S


Beginning with iOS 17, all iPhone 14 and iPhone 15 models include a roadside assistance via satellite function that allows users in the United States to contact AAA for car servicing when they are outside of cellular and Wi-Fi coverage.

They stated that the function will be accessible “beginning” in the United States, thus it will most likely be expanded to other nations beginning in 2024.
