With the impending release of Apple’s iOS 17 software, set to be available for most iPhone users soon, exciting changes are in store for the iPhone’s contact card. These modifications allow for the creation of personalized contact posters featuring photos, Memojis, monograms, and customizable typography. These unique posters will appear on the recipient’s screen when you make a call. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to set up your personalized contact posters once iOS 17 becomes available.
Setting Up Your Personalized Contact Poster on Your iPhone
To create your customized contact poster, follow these straightforward steps:
1. Open the Phone App: Launch the Phone app on your iPhone, then select the “Contacts” tab.
2. Access Your Contact Card: Tap on your name displayed at the top of the Contacts page; it will be labeled as “My Card” beneath your name.
3. Enter the Contact Photo & Poster Section: Now, select the “Contact Photo & Poster” button within your contact card.
4. Choose Your Poster Elements: You will be directed to a screen displaying a preview of your contact poster. Here, you can select from four different options: “Camera,” “Photos,” “Memoji,” and “Monogram.”
5. Customize Your Selection:
- For “Memoji,” you can modify the name at the top and select the Memoji you want to use. You can choose from preset Memojis or create your custom one. In the Memoji option, you can disable the depth effect to place the Memoji behind the text.
- For “Photos,” you can either pick an existing photo from your camera roll or take a new one.
- If you opt for “Monogram,” you will need to input the initials you want to appear on your contact card; at least two letters are required.
6. Preview Your Poster: After customizing your selection, you will see a preview of your contact poster. When satisfied, click “Continue.”
7. Adjust Your Contact Photo: You will have the option to fine-tune the contact photo, which is the image displayed in the Messages app when you text. Crop the chosen poster element to fit your contact photo.
8. Save Your Contact Poster: When you’re satisfied with the adjustments, tap “Done” at the top right of your screen. Your personalized contact poster will be saved.
These steps will enable you to create a distinctive contact poster that adds a personal touch to your calls, enhancing your iPhone experience with iOS 17’s exciting new features.
