While the delay of the Journal app’s release may be disheartening to some. It’s important to remember that Apple’s commitment to delivering a reliable product is part of what has made iOS a trusted platform.

🚨iOS 17 is set to launch on Monday, but a few exciting features won’t be available right away:
1️⃣ Journal app
2️⃣ AirDrop over the internet
3️⃣ Collaborative Apple Music playlists

Moreover, the delay in release may indicate that Apple is actively listening to user feedback to incorporate valuable insights. So, it’s likely that the Journal app will be a well-rounded and feature-rich application.

That said, users can look forward to the eventual release of the Journal app, which will likely be worth the wait.
