the Biting apple company VI released iOS 17 beta For developers, although there aren’t many new features available, it does come with two important changes.

The first occurs after a barrage of complaints against manzana Over the past week to change the traditional position of Close call buttonwhich even for all users remains in the center of the bottom of the entire screen, a few centimeters from the two rows of commands where we find functions such as silence or speakerphone.

The end call button has been in a new place since the first iOS 17 beta released in June, but it’s recently been gaining attention since then. Move from the center of the screen to the bottom right corner.

Something that did not please users who unleashed a wave of complaints Due to the redistribution of this command that lived independently and in this version began to be integrated into the ranks and in the last position, using the keyboard button or the button to silence the neighbors.

Backlash may have contributed to Apple’s decision to put the end call button back in the middle.

In fact, in its latest beta update, the company founded by Steve Jobs move it again, and is now embedded in the lower half of the call screen instead of in the right corner. Although in this case, it’s not quite the same as it was originally, because now it’s accompanied by other contact controls.

Apple may have moved the call screen controls to the bottom of the screen to make room for iOS 17’s new call logos, designed to show the faces of people you’re talking to.

Another big change that came with the sixth beta of iOS 17 is the ability to send photos through the Messages app in a faster and more efficient way.
