Latest iOS 17 Beta Includes 'Save to Photos' Option in Full-Page Screenshot Interface, Better Dual-SIM Support

Apple in the latest iOS 17 public and developer betas has added support for saving full-page screenshots as image files in apps where the system supports the feature.

save to photos
In iOS 16, users can already opt to take a screenshot in apps like Safari, Notes, and Maps, and save the full-page content, or scrolling content, as a PDF document. But in the updated iOS 17 developer beta 3 and the new public beta, Apple has now added a "Save to Photos" option to the Full Page screenshot interface for added flexibility.

The new option also appears in the latest beta versions of iPadOS 17 and macOS Sonoma. The ability to save "scrolling screenshots" as images has been available on Android devices for a while now, but iPhone users have had to use third-party apps like Tailor to achieve the same thing.

In another notable addition spotted by TechCrunch, users are also getting better dual-SIM support, with the ability to sort messages based on SIM, separate ringtones for each SIM, and the ability to choose a SIM when calling back an unknown number.

Public beta testers who have signed up for Apple's beta testing program can download the iOS 17, iPadOS 17, and macOS Sonoma updates now. Apple is expected to release final stable versions of iOS 17, iPadOS 17, and macOS Sonoma later in the fall.

The separate ringtone per line is a godsend and long overdue.

Using both private and work SIM in one phone I always wanted a feature to automatically switch off the work line after work, like a focus schedule. I hope this will be possible in iOS 17 as well.

I had no idea about the full page PDF stuff. Jesus, iOS does so much now that it’s impossible to keep track.

Wow. In one article, I learned we have been able to save/share full page PDFs and will soon be able to save those to directly to Photos.
