September 18th is the set release date for Apple’s new iOS 7. Apple is very excited about the release of the new OS calling it the “Biggest overhaul to the Apple iOS since the release of the iPhone”. iOS 7 will be available for download on the iPhone 4 and later, iPad Mini and 5th Gen iPad, and the iPod 2 and later.
There will be new fonts, icons, neon color palette and even gesture controls (some are crying out that this is catch-up to Android’s Keylime Pie). The new iOS is an overhaul not only in how it looks, but how it functions as well.
It can learn where and when you commute to keep you posted on traffic details.
“It has a new structure, applied across the whole system, that brings clarity to the entire experience,” Apple wrote on its iOS 7 webpage. “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.”
Among its new features is the Control Panel which allows you access to your most used apps at the swipe of a finger. It comes with Air-Drop for highspeed shareing with other iOS devices along with a refresh to Safari and the Multi-Task interface.
