Everyone is crazy about cell phones these days. People love to buy such phones that are simple, more useful, and more enjoyable and above all easy to use. There is a constant battle going on between the inventors of mobile phones which is great as their competition ensures the users get the best always.
What is iOS6 and iOS7?
iOS is simply a mobile operating system designed by Apple Inc. Apple is trying to update their operating system and the latest attraction that has arrived in the market is their iOS7 version. Its features are simply fascinating. Let’s quickly have a look at some of the differences that are incorporated in iOS7 as compared to iOS6.
Since the release of iOS 7 to general public, people preferred the new design of iOS 7 over its old user interface. It’s being adopted by people at quite an impressive rate, almost twice as fast as iOS6. Here is how the two operating systems look different:
Reject a phone call in a more courteous manner: Whether you’re in a meeting or in the middle of something, replying back always remains a problem for mobile users. iOS 7 offers two options to competently tackle this problem. Just set your phone to an automatic reminder or tap “Message” to send a message with some attractive text as “I am busy right now ……..”
Innovative interface: The interface provided in iOS7 is adorable. It is designed keeping in view the familiarity of users with iOS. It’s distinct flat look and the checking of new messages is quiet different as compared to versions of iOS6. Its shinny, bubble-like app launchers has been replaced with 2D variations. Furthermore, games are more delightful for everyone using iOS7 because of its unusual collection of multicolored bubbles and also the photo app which now has a new color wheel.
Control Center: In order to minimize the critical features, a new dropdown interface is added. Without even moving from the running application, you can enable AirPlay mode, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Do Not Disturb, and the screen orientation lock from bottom of the screen. Fed-up of clicking? The incorporation of shortcuts to the calculator and photo apps is not a problem anymore!
Siri: Browsing will not be a tedious task anymore. Want to find information? Not a problem. Just go to the browser and ask as many questions as you like. Use “tell me about (thing), searching for particular Twitter tweets and splendidly access key settings such as Bluetooth and Airplane mode.
Camera & photos: Quite an impressive thing about iOS 7 is the Camera app that has been spectacularly redesigned and offers four kinds of shooting: video, photo, square (for Instagram-style shots) and Pano (for panoramas). Instagram-style for adding retro effects are also included. You can also organize your photos with the help of the Photos app. It automatically sorts photos not just by data, but by location as well. One can easily Share Photo streams with any group in iOS 6 but there is a restriction that only the creator can add photos. You can take pictures instantly but focusing of pictures is not that fast.
Redesigned apps: Some of the annoying tabs have been eliminated in this new version. Your favorite apps such as Evernote and Pocket smoothly run on your phone. Coolest feature about Pocket is that you can save any content to read and later on share it with others even if Pocket is closed and they are all free.
iTunes Radio: You can now easily add new songs with the iTune Radio to your music library. Tune-in to more than 200 genre-specific stations of your choice. Subscribing to iTune Match will make it more fun as it is ad-free. We will be seeing some more releases soon.
All in all the new version is a must. What’s keeping you from updating?
