Flat and simple look is simply awesome and it perfectly meets the latest trends of the world. Clean and simple design UI is latest trend these days, Apple might thought about this and worked on a hell lot of things and finally managed to announce the IOS 7 within time with clean and flat look.
The main thing I noticed during the release of IOS 7 is FONT. Yeah! Apple devices which are running on IOS 7 will get new font. This new font looks cool and flat. IOS 7, the latest version of the operating system from apple is completely different from all recent versions. Lots of changes are made in it and many new features has been added.
Considering all new changes and IOS features, I got addicted to Apple devices again. Here are few new IOS 7 features you must know before upgrading. I’m sure; you will surely like them. I’m in love with all of those IOS 7 features
Complete New Look
- As said earlier, Font has changed completely in IOS 7 which is flat and skinny.
- First time in the history of IOS, Lock screen is changed completely. Slide to unlock is still present but it is missing borders this time. No more black and white borders around slide to unlock, Instead of that, It is translucent above the background image.
- Default icons have changed their look as well. The worlds popular round cornered icons turned must falter this time.
- Keyword too became lighter and translucent which allows you to see the screen below the keyboard.
- Instead of step by step lines which indicates the signal strength has been changed to 5 continues circular dots. The color of those circular dots varies from white to gray depends on its strength.
I know how important is multitasking in gadgets. Multitasking in IOS 7 helps you to shift between background apps in no time.

Anti Theft Protection
Activation Lock is another awesome feature you can find in IOS 7 features. If your apple device which is running on IOS7 is lost or stolen, this option may help you. The thief who stole your device will surely try to erase the data and even try to disable the find my phone. If he/she does so, phones locks automatically and forced to enter your iCloud login credentials.
However, there will be an option with Forgot password. The thief may try to get into your email account by any means. So, I recommend you to enable 2 step verification for your email account.
Something new with SIRI
SIRI, Steve Jobs funnily call it as Steve is really inside, has new options and got a complete new look. The voice of SIRI is changed a little bit and you can choose either male voice or female voice depending on your interest. A new sound wave gonna flow along the button letting you know that it has received an audio input. It directly searches your keyword from Bing and even twitter and Wikipedia is also integrated by default.

From recent pasts, you can open only 8 tabs but from IOS7 you can manage as many tabs you can. The user interface has been changed for these tabs as well. You can switch in between tabs in a vertical carousel, which looks awesome and professional.
IOS 7 has a back button (Kind of)
Most of the Android mobiles have a Back button as a hardware. IOS 7 has a kind of back button, but it is a gesture. You can get back to the old screen by swiping the screen to right side with your awesome and cute finger. It may won’t work at all screens. It works like a charm in Mail, Browsers etc.

Absolutely nothing Apple announced at WWDC 2013 is wildly revolutionary. Nevertheless it brings lots of cool new features to my iPhone and iPad, and even if all it does is help curb iOS device snatchings, it will represent a big step in the right direction.
