Apple unveils iOS 7
Apple has unveiled the most significant update of its iOS since the iPhone first hit the market. The iOS 7 was released during yesterday’s WWDC 2013 keynote and it comes completely redesigned, featuring hundreds of fantastic new features, including iTunes Radio, Control Center, AirDrop, redesigned Notification Center, enhanced photos and improved Multitasking, Siri and Safari.
The user interface is simply stunning, thanks to a chic color palette, subtle motion and very distinct functional layers that bring it to life. It comes with a simplified and cleaner look. Motion and translucency have been introduced to render even the simplest of tasks more engaging. Everything on the new interface is designed to make use of the entire screen, making your iPhone appear bigger.
According to Apple’s Craig Federighi, iOS 7 marks a whole new beginning: “To create it, we brought together a team with a broad range of expertise from design to engineering. With what we’ve been able to achieve together, we see iOS 7 as an exciting new beginning.”
Come this fall, iOS 7 will be available for iPhone 4 and later, iPad mini, iPad 2 and later, and 5th generation iPod touch as a free software update.
