Apple Unveils iOS 7

Apple today detailed iOS 7 for the iPhone and iPad. The new platform, which has a new user interface, includes many new features and capabilities. The following are some new features of the iOS 7:

  • The lock screen has a new updated look and so does the weather app with new animations and a new view of multiple cities at one time. 
  • The calendar app is better at scrolling and landscape support. 
  • The OS has a new swiping gesture that brings back the previous screen. 
  • Game Center supports multiple pages of games within folders. 
  • Notification Center is now visible from the lock screen 
  • Control Center offers faster access to wireless radios and is available from any part of the UI. 
  • Multitasking now works across all apps within iOS, and iOS 7 introduces a new multitasking screen. Multitasking uses intelligent scheduling, opportunistic updates, and adapts to network conditions to fetch background data when apps aren't being used to conserve battery life. 
  • The Safari browser adds iCloud keychain, smart search, shared links, reading lists, and better tab support. Many of these changes are available in the desktop version of Safari, as well. 
  • iOS 7 adds support for AirDrop, which can be used to share files with others nearby via peer-to-peer Wi-Fi. 
  • The camera sees a number of improvements, and allows people to swipe from camera mode to camera mode, such as from standard to panorama. 
  • The Photos app also sees an update, and will help organize photos by putting them into "moments" based on date and location. It also adds a number of filters and editing tools, as well as more advanced sharing capabilities. 
  • Siri has been updated to respond to more natural language requests, and can do things like play voicemails or open Twitter. 
  • iOS 7 brings with it car integration with a number of 2014 models by a handful of manufacturers, and will show up on the car's in-dash system. 
  • It also offers a new version of the App Store, which improves app discovery, such as the ability to see apps that are local, and adds automatic app updates. 
  • Other new features include a new activation lock for stolen phones, night mode within Maps, FaceTime audio for high-quality calls, notification sync across devices, message/phone blocking, and better business support.
