After a month of beta testing, Apple's new update, iOS 17.5, is now available to all iPhone users. This may be the last major update to iOS 17 before Apple unveils iOS 18 at the beginning of June. The update includes new features such as spy and tracking device detection, providing notifications to users if there is a compatible Bluetooth tracking device moving with them.
