iOS 17 Contact Posters is smart One UI Call Backgrounds clone
On June 5, Apple unveiled the iOS 17 software for iPhone models. As always, Apple has taken inspiration from Android and One UI to fuel new features into the next iOS iteration. Among the new entries, iOS 17 Contact Posters was spotted as a smartly cloned One UI Call Backgrounds feature.
One UI has always been inspirational for Google and Apple when it comes to innovative and useful features. Apple’s new iOS 17 comes with a Contact Posters feature, which is absolutely inspired by the Galaxy smartphone’s Call Backgrounds feature powered by One UI.
Using it, Galaxy users assign different images to stored contacts. The intelligent feature then showcases the assigned image when the specific caller makes a phone call. Similarly, Apple’s new software brings the caller background feature, featuring dynamic fonts, which makes it better at first sight.
As showcased at the WWDC23, iOS 17 Contact Posters will allow iPhone users to assign contacts an image or a sticker with additional font options. It is also possible to change the alignment of the caller name so the image doesn’t get a textual overlay. Contact Posters will also be available for third-party calling apps.
Apple says that the Phone app is central to the iPhone experience, and it receives a big update with personalized Contact Posters, providing a new way for users to express themselves. As iOS 17 is currently live on the Developer Preview channel, the stable update will release later this year.
