iOS 7 is completely redesigned with an entirely new user interface and over 200 new features, so it’s like getting a brand new device, but one that will still be instantly familiar to our users,” said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering.
The new iOS7 has all the built-in apps re-engineered for 64-bit, and provides a seamless developer transition with Xcode® support and the ability to run both 32-bit and 64-bit apps. Also provides deep integration with the new Touch ID™ sensor and takes full advantage of the new iSight® camera sensor to enable new features like automatic image stabilization, Burst Mode and Slo-Mo video with 120 fps. iOS 7 is designed to complement the gorgeous exteriors of iPhone 5c, with matching wallpapers and translucency that carry the color through the entire experience.
With more than 200 new features, iOS 7 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch includes:
Additional new iOS 7 features include a new Find My iPhone Activation Lock, that requires your Apple ID and password before you can turn off Find My iPhone, erase data or re-activate a device after it’s been remotely erased; FaceTime® audio for high quality calls over a data network; and new ringtones, alarms, alerts and system sounds.
With all the welcomed features, fans and users now fear if it’s worth it having to create or have up to 3GB to be able to download the software. Millions took to twitter to express their concerns as one tweet reads – “So when U download this iOS7 w/this 3.1GB of space that U just happen to find, do you still have to space to add the things you deleted”? @wepluggoodmusic . Another tweets, “Trying to delete 3.1GB off my phone just for iOS7 !!! stressssed” – @ExpectGDThings
iOS 7 is now available as a free software update starting on Wednesday, September 18 for iPhone 4 and later, iPad 2 and later, iPad mini and iPod touch (fifth generation). Some features may not be available on all products.
