iOS 7 is Here
On September 18th, 2013, Apple will release the latest update to their mobile operating software for iPhones & iPads.
Till now, every iOS update has been so subtle that it was practically unnoticeable. 200 changes? Really… where? Most iPhone users would have had to search them out or trust some tech blogger to list out all the (non)details.
iOS 7 Visual Changes
For Apple, iOS 7 is a blatant new direction of form and function. Once past the lock screen, users will be greeted with sharp new visuals that give more than a passing nod to modern design with flat textures, bright colors, and opaque layers.
iOS 7 Functional Changes
The new iOS looks great, but how does it run? Apple’s put a strong emphasis on intuition, seamless function, and improvements for enterprise clients this time around. Here’s a few big new iOS 7 features:
- Multi-tasking will let more than one app run at once or update in the background so information is completely current
- Control Panel will be available at a swipe so users can change settings without going into submenus
- Data will be easily sharable via Bluetooth or WiFi with other nearby iPhones in a new function called AirDrop
