Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is on a roll with their plans to launch iOS 7 and it looks like they’re set to launch iOS 7 Beta 4 on July 22nd. This would be exactly two weeks after the launch of iOS 7 Beta 3. The last version was mostly filled with bug fixes and small tweaks. It also came with new application download animation, a keyboard change in mobile Safari, a large search box, bolder text, and no more battery charging animation.
Apple Testers Anxious To See Other Betas Rescued From Skeuomorphia
App Advice added, “We don’t expect to see any major changes in iOS 7 beta 4. However, it would be nice were Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) to begin releasing iOS 7 beta versions of non-native apps such as iBooks, iMovie, and GarageBand. For now, even for developers, these apps remain stuck in Scott Forstall’s skeuomorphic world, which includes wood-paneled shelves, and flashing marquees.”
iOS 7 Features Eagerly Anticipated
There is no word on when iOS 7 will be officially released but it should be sometime during late summer or early fall in time for the release of the iPhone 5S. Although we have no idea what to expect from iPhone 5S, it’s pretty safe to predict that it will be a small upgrade from the current iPhone 5 generation. Fortunately, we know what to expect from iOS 7. Highlights for this new Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) operating system include a simpler design, Control Center which allows users to access what they need quickly, Notification Center that alerts users of missed phone calls or important dates on their to-do list, multi-tasking capability that allows users to switch between apps, a better camera with cool filters for that Instagram effect, iCloud Photo Sharing, AirDrop, iTunes Radio, Siri, and more.
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s iOS 7 has lot of fans patiently waiting for what’s next. Since the company doesn’t share any information about their devices until the last minute, people will have to wait and see what the iPhone maker has in store for them.
