Apple fanboys and techies alike are getting excited for the launch of Apple’s spanking new iOS7 Wednesday, September 18th.
Apple.com claims that the new operation system will be the world’s most advanced mobile OS. “With an easy-to-use interface, amazing features, and security at its core, iOS 7 is the foundation of iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It’s designed to look beautiful and work beautifully, so even the simplest tasks are more engaging,” says Apple, “And because iOS 7 is engineered to take full advantage of the advanced technologies built into Apple hardware, your devices are always years ahead — from day one to day whenever.”
The new software is also coming with a whole new design – hopping on the popular flat design trend. It has a new structure, applied across the whole system, that brings clarity to the entire experience. The interface is purposely unobtrusive. Conspicuous ornamentation has been stripped away. Unnecessary bars and buttons have been removed. And in taking away design elements that don’t add value, suddenly there’s greater focus on what matters most: your content.
Mashable.com points out, “among its new features is the Control Center, which provides one-swipe access to the things you access the most on your phone. The multi-task interface and Safari browser were also refreshed. It also comes with AirDrop for high-speed sharing, allowing users to share files with other iOS devices.” Making the things you do every day even easier, faster, and more enjoyable. And while many of the apps look different, the way you do things feels perfectly familiar.
iOS 7 will be available for download for iPhone 4 devices and later. The same goes for iPad 2 and later, the iPad mini and the fifth-generation iPod Touch. For more information, check out Apple’s iOS 7 webpage.
