The most significant iOS update since the original iPhone, as Apple claims, features a new user interface.

The redesigned iOS 7 new features include 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.

Control Center: Quick access panel for common settings has been a much sought after feature for iOS users. Now you have access to controls for Airplane Mode, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or Do Not Disturb, and the ability to adjust screen brightness, pause or play a song with just one swipe from the bottom of your screen. This Control menu also gives you instant access to Clock, Camera, Calculator and the Flashlight.[image_library_tag 815/79815, alt=”ios-7-main-image” width=”550″ height=”416″ ,default]

Notification Center: iOS7 brings notification center to lock screen. Now you can see all your notifications with a simple swipe. The new Today feature in Notification Center gives you an at-a-glance view of your day with a summary of the important details such as weather, traffic, meetings and events.

Improved Multitasking: Developers have the ability to enable any app to multitask in the background with a new API. Users have the ability to switch between their apps in a more visual and intuitive way.

AirDrop: Apple brings file-sharing capabilities with AirDrop in iOS7. This is a new way to quickly and easily share content with people nearby. AirDrop shows you your contacts close by. AirDrop transfers are peer-to-peer so you can use it anywhere, without any network or set up required.

New Camera app: This features filters so you can add real-time photo effects. The Camera app now includes a square camera option, and you can quickly and easily switch between your four cameras-video, photo, square and panorama-with just a swipe.

Redesigned Photos App: Photo app introduces Moments, a new way to automatically organize your photos and videos based on time and location.

iCloud Keychain: With this, your passwords and credit card information will be securely stored and available on all your devices, so navigating password protected sites or autofilling during transactions is simple and secure.

Popular Apps Near Me: A new way to find apps based on your current location, and iOS 7 will automatically keep your apps up to date. The App Store also comes with a new Kids category, allowing teachers and parents to easily discover apps for children by age.

Siri sounds better than ever with new male and female voices and includes Twitter search integration, so you can ask Siri what people are saying on Twitter. Siri also now has Wikipedia integration, providing access to the world’s most popular Internet reference site. Siri offers Bing web search within the app and the ability to change device settings and play back voicemail.
