The day has finally arrived: Apple has announced its long-awaited iOS 7. As expected, this next release isn’t a simple evolutionary upgrade over iOS 6, but rather a complete revamp – something that’s been much-needed as far as I’m concerned. The aesthetics have been amped-up… the OS simply looks gorgeous. It’s bright, clean, and seemingly intuitive.
One major new feature is Control Center, which slides up from the bottom to reveal a couple of quick-access functions. These could include control over currently-playing music to WiFi or Bluetooth enable / disable. There are also some icons for a flashlight and calculator, and we’d assume these could be replaced with your own preferred system tools.
Other features include enhanced multi-tasking, a robust notification center, and a bunch of revamped apps including Photos, iTunes Radio, AirDrop, Camera, Safari, Siri, Weather, Mail and Messages.
