Standby mode in iOS 17 looks amazing — but it’s also a missed opportunity

When Apple announced iOS 17 Standby Mode as one of the biggest iOS 17 features coming to the iPhone later this year, I thought about the beloved iPad mini in my backpack and knew that the arrival of Standby would also be a huge missed opportunity for Apple.

Standby mode turns your iPhone into a smart display with widget-sized clock styles, weather reports, and photo slideshows. It also acts as a hands-free Siri hub, so you can theoretically ask Apple’s voice assistant queries or control your HomeKit-enabled smart home devices with your voice.
