App Store supports legacy downloads, iPhone sales up 20% this quarter, and coolest iOS 7 features

If you're using an older Apple device such as the original iPad and still try to download application you have probably noticed that many are incompatible. Apple has tried to remedy that problem with a new feature in the App Store that allows users to download legacy versions of existing apps that are compatible with older devices.

The latest statistics are in for Apple's fiscal Q4 (Q3 2013) and the numbers show that iPhone sales have increased by 28% this quarter. The surprising thing about that fact is that when the statistics were published pre-orders for the iPhone 5C had only been available for a few days.

If you're looking forward to getting iOS 7 of your iPhone or iPad you may be wondering what new features you can look forward to. Check out this list of some of the coolest features in the new version of the operating system to get an idea of what iOS seven will bring to the table.
