iOS 7 is the latest and greatest version of Apple’s iOS, the mobile OS update was first announced at Apple’s WWDC on June 10, 2013. Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, called it “the biggest change to iOS since the launch of the original iPhone.” It definitely is the biggest change in Apple’s mobile line-up, in terms of OS. iOS 7, brings a modern, and 2013-like interface. Making the iPhone, iPad, Mac/Macbook, and overall Apple experience much more enjoyable.
Apple has made many wishes come true with its new Control Centre. A single swipe and you can change your basic iPhone/iPad settings such as; Turn on or off Airplane mode, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Do Not Disturb. Lock your screen’s orientation or adjust its brightness. Basic music controls. Connect to AirPlay-enabled devices such as the Apple TV, and Mac/MacBook. Not only that, but you can access basic utilities such as the Calculator, Camera, Timer, and for iPhone users and flashlight.
Apple has also updated previous lovable features, such as the Notification Centre, Multi-tasking and updated stock apps.
Notification Centre brings a new design and slightly updated interface. You can now filter out notifications with a today, all and missed feature. Notification can still sync from your Mac, and do so with less clutter. The new notification centre is built on swipes rather than taps, allowing quick and easy management of your notifications.
The updated Multi-tasking has been greatly anticipating, it is modern in comparison to the previous multi tasking, the update bringing a more Android-like Multi-tasking. The new Multi-tasking allows you to see the apps and their progress, allowing faster app switches, and a more useful Multi-tasking.
The updated camera app is a must-love feature. Apple’s Camera app brings a metro look, along with a simple to use interface. You can take stunning photography with your iPhone, and edit those in the updated in-app editor. The new editor brings the basics such as panorama and photo filters, along with the new auto-crop and squared feature.
Along with the camera app, there is a greatly updated Photos app. The new Photos app makes management on your iPhone/iPad very enjoyable. Apple’s Photos app is collage-like. It manages your albums with a collage preview, allowing less time consumption. Along with that, photo management contains a timeline that lets you live back memories by telling you dates. With not much need (in terms of management) to sync to another device such as your Mac/Macbook, the Photos app gives you great management with-in your mobile device.
The iOS 7 updates were greatly anticipated, and were expected to seen done by Apple a couple years ago. With that being said, it is great to see that apple has finally updated. iOS 7 should released to the public in Fall of 2013, so there are a few more months of waiting to be done till Apple releases this fantastic and delicious update.
