Posted on June 10, 2013 by


Apple unveiled iOS 7, the latest version of their mobile operating system, at WWDC 2013. iOS 7 features the first redesign of the OS, removing the glossy look that made it so beautiful and unique. Instead, Apple has gone with a much more flat look seen in the pictures below.

Apple has also added some nice new features to iOS 7, including Control Center, improved multitasking, AirDrop, real-time photo effects, redesigned Safari and more.

Additional new iOS 7 features include:

  • a new Find My iPhone Activation Lock feature that requires your Apple ID and password before you can turn off Find My iPhone, erase data or re-activate a device after it’s been remotely erased;
  • Night Mode in Maps that responds to ambient light when you use it in the dark;
  • FaceTime® audio for high quality calls over a data network;
  • Notification sync, so when you dismiss a notification on one device it is dismissed on all of your devices;
  • Phone, FaceTime and Messages blocking to prevent specific people from being able to contact you;
  • Tencent Weibo support for users in China, a Chinese-English bilingual dictionary, and improved Chinese input including handwriting recognition for multiple Chinese characters;
  • the ability for businesses to more efficiently deploy and manage iPhones and iPads; and
  • enhanced in-car integration, bringing an Apple designed experience into the car for the first time.
