WHEN IS IOS 17.4 RELEASED ON IPHONE? NEW CLUES AND POSSIBLE LAUNCH WINDOW

iOS 17.4 promises to be a very important update for the Apple ecosystem, and will bring with it many new features for users. Among all, the expected sideloading which will allow you to install applications through alternative stores , as required by the European Union DMA.

Testing of iOS 17.4 began almost a month ago, and everything suggests that the launch could take place as early as the next few weeks. Some clues came directly from Apple in the press release in which it announced the new features arriving on the App Store in the European Union. Apple explains that “ developers can learn about the changes on the Apple Developer Support page and can start testing new features in the iOS 17.4 beta today. The new features will be available to users in the 27 EU countries from March 2024.”

The Digital Markets Act will come into force on March 6, 2024 in the European Union: Apple has until that date to comply with the rules and face possible sanctions. Based on this indication, therefore, it is easy to understand that the launch of iOS 17.4, PadOS 17.4, macOS 14.4, watchOS 10.4, tvOS 17.4 and visionOS 1.1 will take place in the first week of March: the possible launch dates could be either the 4th or March 5, 2024 . But we will only have some more specific indications when the Release Candidate is available.
