New Look, New Features For iPhone & iPad

Friday, June 14th, 2013 by | Filed Under: iOS, Smartphones

The look of Apple’s mobile operating system has been pretty much the same for six years, but now the tech giant has announced and update that gives iPhones and iPads a whole new look.

With iOS 7, they are changing everything from colors to the looks of icons and buttons.  Icons and buttons are now flatter and in bolder colors. Apples says the new design should make your phone appear to be larger because it takes advantage of the entire screen.  They also promise that the redesigned text is sharper and easier to read.

One of the biggest changes is something iPhone users have wanted for awhile, a Control Center that gives access to all of your controls in one place. Now, Airplane Mode, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Do Not Disturb are all in one place. Also in the Control Center, the ability to adjust screen brightness, pause or play music and stream music.  Plus instant access to Clock, Camera, Calculator and the new Flashlight app. 

Users will also be able to access their Notification center from their lock screens. From one drop-down menu, calls, messages and a daily calendar will be available.

A new file-sharing service called AirDrop will allow users to create their own ad-hoc local networks via Wif-Fi and Bluetooth with other  users who are close by to share photos.

The free upgrade to iOS7 will be available for iPhone 4 and later, iPad 2 and later, iPad mini and iPod Touch (fifth generation) in the fall.

As a *gasp* Android user myself, I’m probably in no position to judge if these changes are a big improvement. What do all of you iPhone and iPad users think? Comment on the article to let us know.
