Apple has officially released iOS 7, the long awaited revamp of its mobile operating system.

“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,” notes Craig  Federighi,  Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering.

Apple  engineered iOS 7 to take full advantage of the advanced 64-bit   technologies in iPhone 5s, including the native 64-bit kernel, libraries   and drivers. All the built-in apps have been re-engineered for 64-bit,   and iOS 7 provides a seamless developer transition with Xcode support   and the ability to run both 32-bit and 64-bit apps. iOS 7 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. Combined   with the new Camera App in iOS 7, iPhone 5s provides up to two-times   faster auto-focus, faster photo capture and better dynamic range. 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.

Highlighted New Features:
●  Control Center, which gives you quick access to the controls you want   in one convenient place with just one swipe from the bottom of your   screen;
● Notification Center, now available from the Lock screen so  you can  see all your notifications with a simple swipe, and the new  Today  feature gives you an at-a-glance view of your day with a summary  of the  important details such as weather, traffic, meetings and events;
●  Improved Multitasking that gives users the ability to switch between   their apps in a more visual and intuitive way, and iOS 7 pays attention   to which apps you use most and automatically keeps your content up to   date in the background;
● AirDrop, an entirely new way to quickly and easily share content with people nearby;
●  New Camera app filters so you can add real-time photo effects, a  square  camera option, and you can quickly and easily switch between  your four  cameras—video, photo, square and panorama—with just a swipe;
● A  redesigned Photos app that introduces Moments, a new way to   automatically organize your photos and videos based on time and   location;
● Full-screen browsing with Safari’s new redesigned user  interface, the  new smart search field helps simplify searching, and  there’s a new  view for your bookmarks and your Safari tabs;
● Siri  with new male and female voices,* Twitter search integration,  Wikipedia  integration and Bing web searching within the app; and
● iTunes  Radio, a free Internet radio service featuring over 200  stations and an  incredible catalog of music from the iTunes Store,  combined with  features only iTunes can deliver.

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.
