Just after Jailbreak community could successfully crack iOS6, Apple revealed the latest version of their mobile OS, iOS7. All the developers are at work of either recoding and designing their legitimate AppStore Apps or cracking this new piece of iOS code. Since WWDC iOS7 betas are available to download for all the developers (Apple Developer Account Holders) for testing and bug reporting purposes. Let’s talk about what’s new in the OS, everything! Check some of these screenshots of the all new iOS7.
Please click on images to see more details in captions.
New lock screen with parallax (moving) wallpaper
Brand new set of fresh icons. I will say they are inspired by part Android and part Jailbreak themes.
New folder view with 3×3 grid and unlimited icon pages. Yes, no limitations to put all your games in one folder.
New notification center. Also this screenshot shows auto updating of AppStore apps. A huge advantage to users.
New set of options to see in mail inbox. No, you still cannot create email groups. But, this is beta and we might see Apple introduce more features as they release beta 4-5-6 and public release. Don’t give up yet.
iRadio is not a separate app it’s integrated into your music app. All controls work seamlessly with your car’s music system.
New task manager. Far more useful than the previous one. People say it’s borrowed from android but I will say they borrowed it from a jailbreak too called Auxo.
Nice year long view in calendar. No new features. But they improved some views.
There is no separate page for spotlight. Users can access spotlight from any page. Seriously? who cares? For me, I liked the earlier spotlight page better. Anyway, if you are searching for an app that you don’t use often why would you go on 5th page and then search for it.
Finally, no one have to buy any other weather app as Apple has finally understood what users really needed. Say good bye to all the $ you’ve spent on weather apps.
A big thanks for Yahoo and Apple finally to include Feels Like weather and Wind Speed in weather app. Now I don’t have to move it in ‘useless’ folder on 4th page.
Nice auto collections of pictures you take according to locations. I found this very useful when I was looking for that embarrassing pic I took at that place.
Notification center new has three views. Today, all and missed. Wish they will add swipe to discard for notifications throughout the OS in public release.
Brand new control center. I have been using this extensively. Seriously, all the necessary settings at a swipe and tap away.
After using my primary device iPhone 5 on iOS7 beta I have never missed iOS6’s feel and look for a single time. All the new features work flawlessly and now I cannot wait until all my favorite apps get this new overhauled update.
Hope you guys enjoyed screenshots above, stay tuned for more iOS7 updates.
