Everything is made Full Screen, the Caller photo, Safari, Control Center, App store everything will now occupy the complete Screen which looks really beautiful. The new Multitasking system which shows previews of the Apps running in the background is also a great upgrade to compete with Android. Here are some features with Photos of the new iOS7.
New Lock Screen: Lets start from the basic, there is a new lock screen which has changed to scroll up from the bottom of the screen to unlock your iPhone. This looks like taken from Windows Phone OS. But a good update from the boring slide to unlock which we are seeing from many years.
New App Icons: Icons of all the Apps have been redesigned and the design looks bolder and flatter in colors from what they look like in previous OS.
Multitasking: A Big update from Apple which was criticized a lot for its lack of proper multitasking capability compared to what Android had at offer. But this changes everything with the latest multitasking capability and new multi window appearance.
Video Player and Camera: The new video player is very minimalistic in appearance and it goes with the new OS. The Camera has got many new features which will be updated but there is a Photo App “Moments” which organizes photos automatically based on location and time, which is very cool.
