I am an Android user and these 7 iOS 17 features are giving me iPhone envy

I’m a devout member of the Android community and have been for a number of years, for a variety of reasons I won’t go into here. Needless to say I made it clear that I have no intention of leaving Android, Especially considering Apple’s inconsistent and inconsistent take on the back button.

But during the WWDC 2023 keynote, I found myself so intrigued by the new features that were coming to iOS 17, that I actually felt myself thinking “Oh my God, I wish I had this feature on my phone.” Will it be enough to make me switch platforms? Not at all, but these iOS 17 features do a great job of trying to bring me back to my iPhone after a 12-year absence.

I’m not one to ignore calls and leave the fate of the call to the voicemail gods, because sometimes an important call from an unknown number slips through. Fortunately, Apple’s Direct Voicemail feature will make me more inclined to do so.
