Last month, Apple released its newest version of operating system for its iPhones, iPods, and iPads.

The latest edition of their operating system is called iOS7. The software update brings many new and exciting features that brighten and revitalize its interfaces.

The new features of iOS7 include a complete redesign of all of the stock Apple apps, integration of the new Control Center, the moving effect of all the apps and lock screen called Parallax, advances to Siri, and many more new features.

The new Control Center allows easier access to all of the necessary features that you would find yourself going into the settings app for. These include Airplane mode, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, do not disturb, screen rotation lock, screen brightness, volume, and music controls. Control Center also provides a quick way to turn on a flashlight, get to the timer, calculator, and camera.

Senior Caroline Yandell said that the Control Center is very easy to get to and very helpful. Yandell stated, “I like it because it makes it really easy to get to things like flashlight and brightness control. It has a lot of helpful options in it.”

A lot of  iOS7 is visual changes, which do not have a large effect on how it works.

Senior RJ Caslow said, “iOS 7 is basically all formatting changes. I preferred the cleaner look of iOS 6 compared to the complex look of iOS 7.”

There were minor tweaks to the Multitasking, which shows what the app is doing. There is also a new way for users to close the apps by sliding them up off the screen.

New features were also added to the camera. These include a new way to change between video, camera, square, and panoramic. The camera and the square camera now have effects to change your pictures.

iOS 7 adds some helpful devices. But it was for the most part just a redesign of iOS 6.
