iOS 7 Will See More Improvements

Jonathan S. Geller for BGR reports, “These are the same sources who accurately foretold the release timing of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s last iOS 7 beta, and just like iOS 7 beta 2, it is likely that the new software will be released to developers on the same day it reaches carriers. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) finally began supporting the iPad in iOS 7 beta 2, so we should see beta 3 made available for all iOS devices at the same time, including compatible iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and even Apple TV models. We are told Apple is still working on refining iOS 7’s design in order to make it cohesive across the entire OS, and we should see further refinements in beta 3.”

New Jony Ive Design Much Sleeker

iOS 7 is an exciting new operating system that changes the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) experience just a little. Thanks to Jony Ive’s new design, everything looks simpler than it did before. Although not everyone is happy with the appearance of the new design, it’s unlikely that will negatively effect iPhone 5S sales. Highlights for the new mobile operating system include Control Center, which allows users to switch to airplane mode, power on or off Wi-Fi mode, brighten up the screen, and more. There is also the Notification Center that alerts users of new emails, missed phone calls, and to-do list items. What’s even more exciting the new camera feature, which has all  formats including still, video, panorama, and square. This feature also takes a cue from Instagram by adding filters to square and still shots. Users can also test the filters before taking the image.

iOS 7 is a big deal and this upcoming Beta 3 release means that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is one step closer to the official unveiling.
