Apple’s upcoming iOS 17 update for iPhone includes an exciting new feature – contact posters. These customizable profile images will represent you across iOS, displaying on outgoing calls, AirDrop transfers, SharePlay sessions, and more. Express your personality by creating unique contact posters tailored to friends, family, and colleagues.
With iOS 17, iPhone users can finally ditch the boring default contacts list. The new contact posters allow you to set a visual profile that friends will see when you call, AirDrop or SharePlay with them. Access your contact card to start designing mini posters that represent you.
Choose Eye-Catching Photos and Bold Colors
The iOS contact poster editor provides powerful customization options. Upload fun selfies or portraits to use as the backdrop. Using automatic segmentation technology, the editor can neatly cut out the subject from busy backgrounds. For a more abstract poster, opt for Memoji avatars, monograms, or colourful patterns instead of a photo.
After picking a background, embellish your poster further by selecting complementary colours and graphical elements. Add your name, handle, company name or witty caption as the centrepiece. iOS offers curated templates, but you can customize all aspects like fonts, colours and layouts.
Rotate through different poster options to find the perfect fit for each contact group. A professional headshot might suit work colleagues, while a silly selfie matches your closest friends.
Share Seamlessly Across Apple Devices
Once designed, your artsy contact posters automatically display during iPhone interactions with contacts. When you call Mom, she’ll see your smiling sign fill her incoming call screen. AirDropping files to a coworker shows off your sleek corporate sign.
Apple also syncs posters across devices like MacBooks and iPads, so your brand identity follows wherever you use iOS 17. Enable auto-sharing in your contact card’s settings to instantly push new posters to your connections’ address books. Or opt to approve each sign individually before blasting it to your contacts.
Stand Out with Personalized Contact Cards
iOS 17 contact posters finally overhaul the generic lists of names clogging your Contacts app. Now you can express individuality through contact images tailored to each recipient.
Have fun getting creative with photos, colours and captions to design posters that feel you uniquely. Swap between selections for family, friends, work contacts and more. With iOS 17, your phonebook just got a whole lot more interesting.
Contact posters are just one of many exciting improvements in iOS 17 this fall. Apple’s primary iPhone operating system update also includes new home screen widgets, revamped stock apps, and Phone app call tracking, among other handy features. iOS 17 roll out to consumers alongside the upcoming iPhone 15 line release.
Prepare to upgrade your brand by designing custom iOS 17 contact posters for all your favourite people. Pick stunning portraits, add emoji flair and sync these artsy icons across all your iCloud devices. Ditch the default settings and bring some personality to your phonebook.
