In its ongoing WWDC in San Fransico, Apple unveiled iOS7, what is being considered as the most significant iOS7 update since the original iPhone, as Apple’s senior vice-president of Software Engineering Craig Federighi himself claimed. With iOS7, Apple has radically reformulated the user interface adding various new and interesting features. The new system will definitely be available for the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, the iPad 2.
Gone are the bold, primary colors of the old interface which have now been replaced by modern shades and tones. The screen appears bigger because everything from the buttons to the switches to the chrome surrounding apps has been modernized and flattened. The calendar, phone, messages, Game Center, and others now feature as clean, flat layouts. Slimmer fonts, revamped stock app, redesigned weather app, a new slide-to-unlock function, and a new control panel that slides up from the bottom of the screen are some of the new features of iOS7.
iOS 7 introduces Control Center so that all the controls you want to access quickly are all in one convenient place. It also gives you instant access to apps such as Clock, Camera, Calculator and the Flashlight. For photographers, with iOS 7 the new Camera app features filters so you can add real-time photo effects. The Camera app now includes a square camera option, and you can quickly and easily switch between the four camera options—video, photo, square and panorama.
At the WWDC, Apple announced that the iOS7 is likely to be launched this Fall.
