iOS 17 beta 4 includes updated expandable menu design in Messages app
Apple has refreshed the design of its new expandable menu in Messages with the fourth developer beta of iOS 17, which sees the menu add new icons for the Camera, Photos and Audio apps.
With iOS 17, Apple has added an expandable menu that can be accessed with a simple tap to display iMessage apps that replace the former app row above the keyboard.
With the latest beta release, the Camera icon has changed from a shutter button to a traditional camera glyph.
The Photos icon no longer shows the most recent picture taken, and is now the standard Photos app icon. The Audio icon has become a white waveform on a red background instead of a red waveform on a black background, and the Location icon is now encircled in green to look similar to Find My.
