Everything New in iOS 17 Beta 7

We're now getting close to the end of the iOS 17 beta testing process as September approaches, which means we are seeing fewer new features in beta updates and more focus on small refinements and bug fixes.

General iOS 17 Feature Blue Green
We've rounded up the changes in ‌iOS 17‌ beta 7 that we've found so far, but let us know if you've seen a tweak that we haven't mentioned.

Phone App

With this beta, the end call button when the keypad is fully expanded is located at the bottom middle of the iPhone's display, rather than at the right as it was positioned in prior betas.

The updated location brings the expanded keypad end call button in line with the design of the standard (non-expanded) end call button. Apple in the last beta relocated the end call button to the middle of the display.

Silent Mode Haptic Feedback

In ‌iOS 17‌ beta 6, there was a bug that removed the haptic feedback that is meant to signal when the mute switch is activated and the phone is silenced. In beta 7, the haptic feedback is back, plus the vibration has changed slightly.

The haptic feedback vibrations last just a bit longer, making them easier to notice. This change comes ahead of rumors suggesting Apple will add an action button to the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro models, replacing the mute switch.

Mood Tracking

Apple is still refining the animations that are used to represent each mood for the State of Mind feature in the Health app, and it has changed the speed of the rings around each shape.

I've never been more bored about a feature announcement than mood tracking.
You could use it to track your boredom.

maybe it's my imagination, after installing this beta on the 14 pro, force closing all apps, rebooting the phone. every apps seems to be opening and loading just a bit quicker..
I believe the term is snappier. :p

Yep. To this day I'm still wondering what's the freakin' point of this app.
As someone with depression I find it very useful to help me look back at times I was less depressed and what my mood was to help my mind go back to a less volatile emotional state. For the same reason I’m excited for the journal app whenever that launches.

This iOS 17 Beta 7 seems rich, stable, and well-refined. I hope next week we get blessed with a Release Candidate.
