Apple has silenced the growing critics over it’s static design and discontent over it’s operating system which didn’t change much since 2007 by revealing IOS 7 at the WWDC 2013  which was held in San Francisco yesterday.

From color Schemes and typography to typical icons and entire button shape across the entire platform has been alternated. In simpler words, the whole thing- from Photo app to Safari browser.

Let’s have a look at some of the features of the new IOS 7 :-

1. Kids App Section – Apple has now introduced a kid section for finding appropriate apps for children.

3. Just Swipe to Go Back  – When browsing through some app or Safari and you need to go back,  then all you have to do is “swipe” in from left.

There are lot more features in iOs 7, but we tried to be selective so that our readers won’t get bored.
