iOS 7

The iOS 7 is an operating system that was designed and developed especially for iPhone and iPad by Apple from 2013 to 2014. The system has been released on September 18, 2013, and was preinstalled on the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPod touch 5th Generation, iPad Air, and iPad mini 2. This software gets the last update (7.1.2) on September 17, 2014, and later has been replaced by a newer version of iOS 8.

iOS 7 introduced a completely redesigned user interface, a design credited to a team led by Apple’s former senior vice president of design, Jony Ive. The new look, featuring flatter icons, a new slide-to-unlock function, and new animations, was described by Ive as “profound and enduring beauty in simplicity”.

The new design was implemented throughout the operating system, including the Notification Center, which was updated with three tabs offering different views of information; notifications visible on the lock screen; a redesigned Siri voice assistant offering visual indicators; and a Control Center offering easy access to the most commonly used features.

iOS 7 also introduced AirDrop, a wireless sharing technology; CarPlay, phone and car integration; and automatic app updates in the App Store.

Today iOS 7 is 10 years old!
