Apple has made iOS 7, the latest version of its mobile operating system, available for download a few moments ago. The iOS 7 can now be installed on the following compatible iOS devices: iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad Mini or the 5th generation iPod Touch. You need to go to your device's settings menu, choose “general" and after that just select the software update option.
You can choose to install iOS 7 as an over-the-air update or through iTunes, which has been recently updated to version 11.1 both on Windows and Mac OS X. And if you want to sync music, videos, and other content to your iOS device, then you’ll have to download it anyway.
If you don’t know how iOS 7 looks and behaves, you might have a surprise as Apple's latest mobile OS version has had its user interface redesigned under the direct supervision of Jony Ive. You can let us know in the comments section what you think of it after you install it. Besides the big visual makeover, iOS 7 also comes with some new features like iTunes Radio, AirDrop sharing, ControlCenter, and improved card-style multitasking.
It will be interesting to see how fast users decide to switch to the new iOS version, because some of them might be reluctant, at least initially, to try out such a steep change. Apple’s CEO himself, mister Tim Cook, has described iOS 7 as “the biggest change to iOS since the iPhone.”
However, I’m confident that Jony Ive did a wonderful job, as always. Let us know your impressions regarding Apple’s new iOS 7.
