One of iOS 17’s standout features, StandBy allows you to view notifications, use widgets, and view photos – all in a dedicated landscape view.
It’s really cool and makes iOS 17 feel very different than previous updates. However, it still feels a little rough around the edges, so I haven’t used it as much as I’d hoped.
Luckily, there are other products that do the same thing Stand by (Show the weather, allow you to control music, view photos, control your lights, etc.), and one of these is massively discounted on Amazon Prime Big Deal Days Shopping event.
Get the Echo Show 5 for just $39.99
The perfect desk companion
The Echo Show 5 lets you easily view content on a 5.5-inch display, similar to StandBy iOS 17. Still, a dedicated hub makes a lot of sense, especially in your kitchen or office. I think StandBy on iOS 17 is fantastic, but it also keeps interrupting me because I have to use my iPhone throughout the day. The Echo Show 5, on the other hand, offers the benefits of StandBy without having to wait for Apple to release its own widget device.
Amazon Prime Big Deal Days is in full swing and we have less than 24 hours left. We’ll bring you the best deals, so stay tuned to iMore throughout the shopping event.
