Apple’s launch of new iOS 7 this fall will be their first major overhaul to the iOS user interface (UI) which runs on iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and iPad mini. This new iOS7 will be compatible with iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod Touch 16/32/64GB, iPad 2, iPad with Retina Display and iPad mini, but not all features will be available on all devices (See end of this article for the compatibility & features).

The new facelift is beautiful and comes with new icons, simplicity in design and uses translucency to provide a sense of dimension to the user interface. Besides the change in user interface, iOS7 will also pack in a couple of cool new features like the AirDrop and new iTunes Radio.

New Features – iOS 7:

  • Control Center – quick access to the controls and apps you always seem to need right this second
  • Notification Center – A new feature called Today gives you a convenient summary of what is happening today and  access the Notification Center from any screen, including the Lock screen
  • Multitasking –  iOS 7 learns when you like to use your apps and can update your content before you launch them
  • Camera – change from still, video, panorama, and now square format all with a swipe and new artistic filters let you do even more with each image
  • Photos –  Collections, Moments, and Years — smart groupings of your photos and videos based on time and place.
  • *NEW AirDrop – lets you quickly and easily share photos, videos, contacts — and anything else from any app with a Share button
  • Safari – a new TAB view for effortless browsing from tab to tab and now you can view all the URLs in your Twitter timeline, who posted them, and what they had to say about them
  • *NEW iTunes Radio – features streaming radio stations — from the best selection of music
  • Siri – gets a new look, a new sound, checks more sources, such as Bing, Wikipedia, and Twitter, as well as taking on extra tasks, like returning calls, playing voicemail, controllingi Tunes Radio, and more
  • App Store – Apps Near Me shows you a collection of popular apps relevant to your current location and now App Store automatically update your apps – no more little red badge begging for your attention
