iOS 7

iOS 7 is the seventh version of Apple’s proprietary mobile operating system for iPhone, iPad and iPodTouch. Like earlier versions, iOS 7 is based on MacIntosh OS X and supports multi-touch gesture recognition for user actions including pinching, tapping and swiping.

Some of the main features of iOS 7 include:

  • A revamped interface, moving from realistic skeuomorphism to a graphic flat design.
  • Transparency and animation effects include parallaxing layers and apps based on motion.
  • Improved multitasking and easier app switching.
  • Predictive content loading in the background.
  • iTunes radio, a free personalized streaming radio service that adapts to the user’s taste.
  • AirDrop feature enables one-to-one or one-to-many file sharing over an encrypted Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connection.
  • Fingerprint recognition in the home button.
