How often have you tried to FaceTime someone only for them to be busy or unable to answer and talk, but there’s no way of leaving a message saying why you’ve called? So they’re probably thinking, “Well, what on Earth does Jacob want?” Well, now on iOS 17, if a call isn’t answered, say to my fiancée Sapphy, I’ll get a new option to either cancel the call, call again, or to leave a video message. And this is basically like a video voicemail, which is really easy to use. If I tap onto a called message, I get a 3, 2, 1 countdown, and then I can leave a little message explaining why I called and perhaps asking her to call me back later.

When I’m done recording that message, I can watch it back if I wanted to, and retake the message, or I can just send, and that’s it. I’ve left a visual voicemail on Sapphy’s iPhone for FaceTime. It’s a really simple feature to use, but one that adds so much more value to your iPhone. And there are dozens and dozens of new things on iOS 17 that level up your iPhone like never before.
