In 2018, Google released the original pixel standa wireless charger that, when used alongside Pixel phones, unlocked unique smart display functionality.

While charging, your Pixel switched to a smart display mode with touchless access to Google Assistant, widgets, a photo frame, and more. The 2021 Pixel Stand brought the same features at faster charging speeds.

Now, it seems that Apple is going to follow the same steps. According to well-known Apple analyst Mark Gurman at Bloomberg, There might be a smart display mode in iOS 17 that would kick in when the iPhone is locked to sleep.

Interestingly, Gurman says that this function It would only activate when the iPhone is in a horizontal position but it doesn’t mention anything about Apple releasing a wireless charger to enable this functionality, so it could work even while not charging.

According to Gurman, the new interface would display information such as calendar appointments, weather and notifications in the style of a smart screen. The function will use a dark background with light text for easy reading.

Gurman claims that This could be one of the main novelties of iOS 17. If true, the launch of iOS this year could bring less news than last year, although it is also true that this year’s highlight will be the Reality Pro headset.

Apparently, Apple is working on a display that works like Google’s Pixel Tablet in that it can magically “stick” to places. However, this product is still in the early phase of development.

On the other hand, iOS 17 is expected to include improvements to the Wallet app, location services, a new journal app, and several health-focused updates.
