When it comes to Apple’s iconic media events, the one thing that guarantees hype is new hardware. No matter what else is on the agenda, iPhones and iPads are the star attractions.

With all of the talk about the release of iOS 7 and a change to a flatter, less skeuomorphic design, we’ve been wondering how Apple would accomplish the move without losing clarity. After all, a pretty interface isn’t any good to anyone if you can’t get it to do what you want.

Apple closed out their WWDC 2013 keynote with an introduction to iOS 7, and a huge focus was on how it looks. We know Apple can make something look nice, but can a flatter design make iOS work better on your iPad? (more…)

Today, Apple unveiled their newest iteration of iOS (appropriately called iOS 7) at WWDC. It features a complete redesign that re-envisions what is possible with an iPhone and iPad while adding a ton of great new features that make it even better for Apple’s power users. Let’s check out what iOS 7 brings to the table. (more…)

It’s 2013 and, if tradition reveals itself for another year, we can expect to hear some details of iOS 7 over the next few months. There’s a bunch of new stuff we’d love to see in the next generation of iOS alongside a number of improvements to what there already is.

In this article, we’re going to take a look at few of the areas we’d like Apple to take a look at with iOS 7, both to improve the current experience and better compete with the ever-growing rival options from Microsoft, Google and others. (more…)
