Apple announces iOS 7

Apple has finally announced iOS 7. The announcement was rather expected, in spite of Apple's strong secrecy on its new products.

iOS 7 boasts a new user interface, a resigned subtle motion, elegant color palette, and functional layers. Apple has also refined the fonts, making it simpler and cleaner.

iOS 7 also brings several new features including a new control center, improved notification center, enhanced Siri, Photos and Safari, as well as improved multitasking, better camera app, and iTunes Radio.

iOS 7 isn't just an update to its predecessor, iOS 6. Apple says that  iOS 7 is a complete overall in terms of the UI. However, Apple was careful to maintain the "familiar" design and functionality of the user interface.

Other features of iOS 7 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.

 

iOS 7 will be available as a free download for the the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad mini, and the iPod touch (fifth generation).

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
