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).
