Apple iOS 7 introduces great new features like Control Center, AirDrop for iOS, and smarter multitasking. It also makes 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. So from day one, you know how to use the world’s most advanced mobile OS. In its most advanced form. 

Just week before Apple Official Releases OS X Mountain Lion v10.8.4 Update. 

“There is a profound and enduring beauty in simplicity, in clarity, in efficiency. True simplicity is derived from so much more than just the absence of clutter and ornamentation--it’s about bringing order to complexity.”

The ever-popular Apple rumor mill  has everything from iRadio to the iWatch to the iPad 5 now it’s the time to release some big details about the future of its products at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) and fine out more about iOS 7 and Mac OS X 10.9 .

“This actually  support multitasking for all apps . This ia a biggest change to iOS since the iPhone has been launched and actually a success for our team “ says CEO Tim Cook .

“We have always thought of design as being much more than the way something looks, it’s  actually the the whole thing in a way something actually works on so many different levels” , says Ive .

Apple may use iOS 7 as an opportunity to update its Maps app. Other features in iOS 7 may include new ways to do things through gesture commands. This has just tried to create an interface that’s unintrusive and deferential. We  see iOS 7 as a defining new direction, and in many ways, a new beginning .

The other big software update for Apple will be to their desktop operating system. As with iOS 7 we can certainly expect a cleaner, more minimalist design, but beyond this , predictions are uncertain. Apple might be bringing more of the mobile world to the desktop with possible additions of Apple Maps, and iBooks, and Siri apps.




Multitasking has always been a smart way to switch between apps. Now it’s even smarter. Because iOS 7 learns when you like to use your apps and can update your content before you launch them.

Camera in iOS 7 puts all your shooting formats — still, video, panorama, and now square — front and center. With a swipe, you can capture what you want the way you want.1 Fast. And new filters let you do even more with each image.

With iCloud, you can share your favorite moments with your favorite people by creating a shared photo stream. They can post photos, videos, and comments to your stream, and it all appears on everyone’s iOS devices — automatically. 

AirDrop everything, Sending a photo or a document to someone via text or email is fine. But if that someone is right next to you, a text or an email suddenly feels like too many steps. Enter AirDrop for iOS. It lets you quickly and easily share photos, videos, contacts — and anything else from any app with a Share button.

Every time you create an account, you can have Safari generate a unique, hard-to-guess password. And remember it for you.
iTunes Radio features streaming radio stations you’ll love from day one — from the best selection of music.

Siri in iOS 7 gets a new look, a new sound, and new capabilities. It features a redesigned interface that fades into view — on top of whatever’s on your screen. A more natural speech pattern — in a new female or male voice — is even easier to understand. Siri is faster at answering questions and checks more sources, such as Bing, Wikipedia, and Twitter. 

New security features in iOS 7 make it harder for anyone who’s not you to use or sell your device Find My iPhone App helps to loss your phone. Find My iPhone can also continue to display a custom message, even after your device is erased.

Apple Unveils iOS 7
Completely Redesigned With Stunning User Interface & Great New Features

SAN FRANCISCO―June 10, 2013―Apple® today unveiled iOS 7, the most significant iOS update since the original iPhone®, featuring a stunning new user interface. iOS 7 is completely redesigned with subtle motion, an elegant color palette and distinct, functional layers that make it feel more alive. The typography has been refined for a cleaner, simpler look, and the use of translucency and motion makes even simple tasks more engaging. iOS 7 has hundreds of great new features, including Control Center, Notification Center, improved Multitasking, AirDrop®, enhanced Photos, Safari®, Siri® and introduces iTunes Radio™, a free Internet radio service based on the music you listen to on iTunes®.

“iOS 7 is the most significant iOS update since the original iPhone,” said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering. “To create it, we brought together a team with a broad range of expertise from design to engineering. With what we’ve been able to achieve together, we see iOS 7 as an exciting new beginning.”

“There is a profound and enduring beauty in simplicity, in clarity, in efficiency. True simplicity is derived from so much more than just the absence of clutter and ornamentation—it’s about bringing order to complexity,” said Jony Ive, Apple’s senior vice president of Design. “iOS 7 is a clear representation of these goals. It has a whole new structure that is coherent and applied across the entire system.”

iOS 7 is completely redesigned with an entirely new user interface, but will be instantly familiar to the hundreds of millions of iPhone, iPad® and iPod touch® users around the world.
