iOS 7 unveiled, includes new UI and features – all you need to know

June 10, 2013

Camera and Photos

The Camera app has also been updated, with the new UI allowing users to seamlessly move between video mode, to photo mode, to cropped camera, to panoramic camera. Instagram-like live photo filters are available when taking a picture.

iOS 7 Camera

The Photos app is even more interesting, as it can now automatically arrange pictures in their own corresponding photo album, without the need of the user’s interventions.

iOS knows when a certain photo was taken, and where the user was, and based on those characteristics it’ll be able to categorize pictures accordingly.

The Photo app categorizes photos by Collections, Moments and Years. Years hold all the pictures in a year, which are in their turn divided into Collections, which are made of Moments.

iOS 7 Photos

iCloud Photo Sharing is also present, and users can create photo streams and respond to other’s shared photos and videos with comments and/or with photo and video shares of their own.

Siri and iOS in the Car

Siri has also been updated in iOS 7, getting a new interface and better female and male voices – support for other languages in addition to English, including French and German, will be available at start.

iOS 7 Siri

In addition to answering various queries, and displaying them on the screen, Siri is getting new powers, and users will be able to issue new commands like “play last voicemail,” “increase brightness,” or “turn on Bluetooth.

Siri will feature Bing and Wikipedia support and will be able to read tweets from the people the user is following.

iOS in the Car is a new iOS 7 feature that will help users control their iOS devices while driving, via an in-dash system. Various manufacturers will start including iOS in the Car support in their 2014 models in order to let users perform various actions while driving their cars including commute summary,
Siri support for calls and messages, iTunes Radio and navigation with Apple Maps.

App Store

The App Store has also bee updated to offer content for a specific age group – particular useful for parents – but also to offer “Apps Near Me,” which will show popular apps based on the user’s location.

iOS 7 App Store

More interestingly, the App Store will update apps automatically, without the user having to actually perform the tasks.

iTunes Radio

As previously rumored, Apple has introduced its own music streaming service in iOS 7. Called iTunes Radio, the service will be available for free with ads, or free of charge without ads to those people that already pay for the yearly iTunes Match subscription.

The service will be available in the U.S. at first, but it will roll out to other markets after that. The service will be available to iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, PC and Apple TV.

iOS 7 iTunes Radio

iTunes Radio will let user easily discover music from the music app. Users will be able to listen to custom-made radio channels created by Apple, or by others, and customize their own listening experience. The service will be similar to what Spotify will have to offer, and it’s clearly a rival to Google’s own Play Music All Access music streaming service which was introduced only a few weeks ago at Google I/O.

    Am I the only one who thinks this interface looks like the Any.DO app?

    • James

      I had to take another look and it does surprisingly.

      • scb1898

        Dang! I expected many more comments. I like the new look and features os iOS 7. I’m glad I’ve had them on Android.

  • tyrtok

    so revolutionary new! oh wait, i have them on my S3 already. not to mention that given such a small screen on driving mode, is there a higher chance u will get into an accident?

      jealousy distilled into one comment

        There is literally Nothing to be jealous about, since they didnt introduce anything that android doesnt already have..

        • AnotherAndroidKid

          Now now. ios has its place. My mother in law for example.

          Plus, we should be happy the iphoners are getting new features to them.

          • NoTechSup

            Don’t want to be the one in the family that got grandpa the ipad for xmas because it “just works”. He’s going to have a lot of questions for you when all his icons change shape and color

  • Apple Sucks

    The most of them are copied from Android 4.2 feautures. All of them are just very old ones that existed in almost every Android. Apple keep stooping so low that it is getting despicable.

    • RodneyE.Jones

      So, you don’t think that 4.2 borrowed from the originator of this look?… Windowsphone!! Microsoft is responsible for this modern look whether you want to admit it or not.

      • Võ Hoàng Trí Dũng

        He is talking the features, man. The looks is just a 100% originate from WP, which makes it funnier, because it’s kinda sucks. Not to mention the very stupid color scheme.

    do you finally beg to android apple so did you decide copy its style heh?sheeps…..android owns .i.

    whack!!!!!!! terrible android copy….

  • androidjunkie11

    Let’s play, “Count the ‘original’ Apple updates”! Here’s how to play: You simply watch the video, and count as many Apple “original ideas” that Android has already released months/years before this, and post them in the comment section!

    #1 Preview of currently running apps with the app icon AND screenshots of the apps (Android already did it).

    #2 The ability to swipe away currently running apps (Android already did it).

    #3 Notifications in the lock screen (Android already did it).

    #4 Bigger, yet thinner text to look more sleek (Android already did it).

    #5 A control center for things like wifi,bluetooth, ect, all with the drag of a finger (Android already did it).

    #6 Full-screen web browsing…even though iOS 7 doesn’t even let you use literally the whole screen (Android already did it…and you can use the ENTIRE full-screen).

    #7 A slide to unlock screen that doesn’t actually show a bar to slide, but is invisible in order to look sleeker (Android already did it).

    #8 Transparent screens. (Android already did it with the options of using apps that change the launcher…something that Apple still won’t allow).

    #9 Automatic Updates (Android already did it…YEARS ago).

    #10 Photo date tagging (Android already did it).

    #11 Automatically organizing photos based on date taken (Android already did it).

    #12 Air Drop…Really? Bluetooth does the same thing without using up your data plan. (Bluetooth already did it).

    #13 The ability to see web browser bookmarks in screenshot form (Android already did it).

    #14 The ability to swipe through different internet tabs (Android already did it).

    #15 iTunes Radio…Pandora did this ages ago. (Android already did it with Google Music All Access…AND you can listen to any full song you want (combination of Pandora and Spotify))

    If this was a drinking game, we’d all be passed out by now lol

    • Genesoid

      Please… you make a list of how iOS copies Android when iOS came first. Now I know they say iSheep can be ridiculous but an-tards are in a league of their own!!
      How about you show some balance and count all the features iOS had when android was still making cupcakes and donuts. Add that to the fact the over 30% of android users are still 1 or 2 generations behind when 90% of iOS users are on the current generation of their OS.
      I’m not picky about any OS, but your comments are worse than those on idownloadblog. LOL

      • androidjunkie11

        Using the argument that iOS isn’t copying Android because their OS came first is like saying that Ford hasn’t copied anybody ever because they came out with the first car…you sir are a moron and I weep for your children’s sake.

        • mustache

          Ford did not come up with the first car, but rather pioneered the mass production of cars.

          • Trent Richards

            This misinformation is as common as “The iPhone was the first smartphone”

          • R4

            It wasn’t, and apple never claimed it to be the first smartphone, but what they did is reinvent the smartphones. Smartphones before the iPhone were just blackberries, preppie doesn’t even consider them as smartphones nowadays

          • Trent Richards

            Well I didn’t say anything about Apple claiming the iPhone to be the first smartphone. That is a common misconception though, much like Ford inventing the car. Furthermore the LG Prada was no blackberry, nor was the windows smartphones or the Nokia smartphones running symbian. Apple didn’t reinvent the smartphone, they simply improved on previous versions. Not one aspect of the original iPhone was unique. Each of the features was present in at least one other smartphone before it.

          • R4

            Yes, but iPhone’s improvement made these touchscreen smartphones available for anyone and inspired many other OSs. If you remember in 2007 Eric Schmidt saying “this product is going to be hot” on Mac World, when iPhone was first announced, but guess what? in a years time Google created its own OS. So who started this war of copying each other?

            People compare iPhones with Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One and Xperia Z, but come on, they are comparing one phone with 3 or 4 different phones. Ive been using an Android for the last 2 months and yes, it was pretty impressive for the first few weeks but it wasnt as quick, the app quality in the Play store is poor, i mean the 5th most popular app last week was a farting app O.o and many apps such as Facebook, Audible (owned by Amazon), and stock apps had either poor quality or glitches. Apple raised the standards of Apps and gave opportunities for Indie developers to create high quality apps with their SDK.

          • Trent Richards

            Google didnt copy iOS in a year. In fact Google didn’t copy iOS at all. You seriously need to do your research before making these bold claims. Development of the Android OS began in 2003 under a company named Android Inc. iOS development began in 2004. In 2005 Google purchased Android Inc. and continued the development of the Android OS. In Oct of 2007 Android was revealed to the world just a few short months after the iPhone was released. Android was fully functional at the time and already more feature rich than the current version of iOS. For instance Android had the ability to install apps, something that Apple didn’t even announce until later that same month and didn’t have in place until 5 months later in March of 2008. The fact that you think Google copied iOS at all, much less managed to do it in a year shows your ignorance to mobile history as well as how long it takes to develop a mobile OS. It took Apple 3 full years to develop iOS and Android was under development for 4 years. Android development began before iOS and the fact that Apple beat them to completion by a few months does not mean that Google copied iOS. You Apple fan boys need to let that one go. It is complete misinformation.

          • R4

            More features than the current iOS? seriously? Android only became as good as iOS with Gingerbread. Android runs on Linux, but iOS runs on UNIX, it really doesn’t take an Einstein to work out which is better. Research for iOS began since Newton. Google bought Android AFTER iOS production began.

            And i dont understand why people say android 1.6 is better than iOS 7. Ive got the latest android and it already has way more glitches than my iPhone ever had, ever since i started using iPhones.

          • Trent Richards

            Yes it was more feature rich than the first version of iOS. Seriously, do your research man.

          • R4

            Installing app is a pretty big feature since apps are what you use the most, and iOS has better quality in its apps (generally). yes android has slightly more apps but iOS has way more professional and good quality indie apps.

          • Trent Richards

            Once again you have nothing to rebuttal my points with so you side step and make some completely different point. Installing apps is a big feature, one that Android had when it was revealed in 2007 but iOS was lacking at the time. You initially made the claim that Google copied iOS in a year and I thoroughly disproved that naive notion with indisputable facts and time lines. You clearly haven’t done your research, aren’t qualified for this discussion and really just need to stop.

        Trouble is, even Android 1.6 did stuff that you’re only now just getting on ios7.
        But, we’re happy for you that you’re getting the features to make a great phone, it’s a shame Jobs had to die before you were allowed to have them.

        you sir are simply idiot

        You live in an imaginary world where the iPhone revolutioned smartphones, it’s just crap. iphone knew a large success in the past but doesn’t mean was the best. It’s just marketing which helped

        For your information ,actually the dominant version of android is jelly bean, followed by gingerbread and ICS.

        Most of those features were already available on these versions

      • Trent Richards

        Interesting that you say iOS came first. Android development started in 2003 where iOS development started in 2004. iOS did release months earlier than Android although the same year and with less features. You need to research mobile history over the past 10 years.

        U mad,bro?

      • Vineen Manarang

        iOS coming first doesn’t mean Google copied them.

        30% of Android users may be 1-2 generations behind the latest Android operating system doesn’t mean they don’t like the latest OS or can’t avail it, it is because they either had the sufficient, “useful” features in their smartphone or simply doesn’t care whether they have the latest OS or not.

        90% of iOS users may be on the current generation of iOS but most of the time they get disappointed for upgrading and then find ways to downgrade to a lower version. I’ve seen many iOS users saying that their iDevice now looks like Android, feels like Android. Others upgraded because simply, it’s mainstream, it’s in, then get disappointed in the end. And others will say that it’s beautiful simply because they own at least one iDevice.

    • MasterMuffin

      And here’s a list of different operating systems that they “stole” from (add if you find more): Android (duuh), Windows Phome, WebOs, Sailfish and it even somehow resembles the look of Symbian/MeeGo, MeeGo was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw iOs7!

          There’s nothing to be jealous about, really, you can have most of it right now; just look around for Nova / Apex / Go Launcher themes + icon themes and there you have it (have a look at the MIUI icon pack, people say Apple really ripped it off).

    Copy much. It’s time to take apple to court Google

  • DrCarpy

    Is it just me or does look a little like….I don’t know…ANDROID? Control Center sounds like app drawer, reminders = Google Keep. Translucent stuff, every launcher in Android does that? Why does conventional media not state this? Why is Apple given so much credit for innovation when they simply don’t? So later this year when they release the 4.8 iPhone, will the media still give them credit then,yes CNet I’m looking at you….Where I come if you acted like apple, you wouldn’t be a leader, you’d be a follower.

    • RodneyE.Jones

      Well, it looks like Windowsphone.. If it looks anything like Android its because Android took desing cues from Windowsphone.. Its a FACT, and everyone knows, that Microsoft came up with this modern UI design language years ago.. WP was first with this look, and there’s no doubt about it!

        No. Actually xerox created the modern graphical user interface. Hm maybe your a windows fanboys

        • RodneyE.Jones

          Zerox didn’t pioneer this specific design language.. Microsoft did, and that’s a well known fact! Its called Metro, and even reviewers are referring to it as being “metroish” just quit being a idiot and give credit where credit is due..

          • Ivan Myring

            Flat colours aren’t a design. Anyway… MIUI

          • RodneyE.Jones

            But, they obviously copied more than just the flat aspect if the design. The WHOLE design language has been emulated.. I’m just saying that they should’ve either choose a different design language, or created a new one of their own.. Its possible because when WP7 came out it was totally different than the others.. The Metro language goes back to the Zune media player, and you have to admit that THIS IS MICROSOFT’S DESIGN LANGUAGE! And, google started to implement it in ICS after they saw what MS came up with in WP. This is FACT!

            Totally unrelated, but just a tip. As someone who is barely reading anything you’re saying, your constant insisting that things are FACTs makes me imagine you as someone who is making up things and trying to convince me that they’re real. Not trying to be a hater, just thought it’d be good to know how you sound.
            I know it’s the internet and yada yada yada, but you can win arguments by convincing facts rather than declaring them.

    Funny thing, after watching some I/O sessions on design I can’t help but nitpick on that calendar screenshot on the left. I mean, ” ‘Take Marty to vet’ is next up on your calendar, in 49 minutes.” just seems like a terrible overkill; it would seriously get in my way to getting calendar information, like you have to actually “pay attention” to what you’re reading for some seconds until you kind of understand what is going on: just “time – name of event” like in Google Now is much more straightforward.

    Also, this is, again, more of a philosoraptor debate, but… How can a text message be missed? A call is a window of opportunity, you have to get it right away or… you missed it. How would you miss a message? It’s always there for you to do something with it. You either miss all of those that are not seen at the precise moment they arrive at the messaging app (ergo nearly all texts are missed texts) or you miss none, as they are always there for you to reply or decide to ignore and so forth…

    As soon as iPhone 5S release, I will be back to iPhone. Finally they have added the control centre for quick setting which is the 1 of 2 feature that I love about Android phone. Adding widget then it will be perfect for me.

    For many of you out there saying they copy from android or wp, seriously do you have anything better to do beside trash talk about each other over something that not even owned or created by you? Apple sue Samsung, Samsung sue Apple? I really don’t give a damn, just make me a good product then I am happy. Should you be happy to have more competitors in the market because you will have more choices?

    From my point of view, I think originally Android did work hard to catch up Apple therefore Android community can get a really good OS now. With Apple also they need to work hard now catch up with Android which will bring good to iOS user. So at the end of day consumer (us) will get the best out of them.

      I don’t think Apple is providing us with a choice yet. I can’t just go bank-robbing for 500$ for an unlocked iPhone 5. And to be serious, the cheap iPhone leaked images gave me a real unpolished experience. While with 300$, I can get myself an unlocked Samsung/Sony with the same specs as iPhone 5. Now, where is the choice?

        Never said Apple give you choice, I said “Should you be happy to have more competitors in the market because you will have more choices?”. The choice are Android or iOS. Why ppl have to pay thousand of dollars for a branded name wallet when they can buy cheap on for like $10? Both of them have same spec too can hold your credit card, your money and so on. I think this example is simple enough for you to understand the concept for branding over the features.

    I knew it, I actually posted on a forum 2 days ago that mainly white ui backgrounds was probably coming. It’s what Sony did to jelly bean on Xperia, the sms and phone/adressbook/log apps have this and Apple, like Samsung, will never stop stealing from Sony.

    Too bad Sony didn’t go all the way on this, but they have enough to be remembered as the first.

    Anyway, what we see here is very relevant to android, it’s inevitable that Samsung will copy a lot from ios7 ui, the only problem I see is flagships with amoled, they can’t copy the white and light colors if they want to save battery.

          The only reason ppl care so much about this stuffs are because they like to show off their devices and to proof with other ppl that they have a better devices.

      Google isn’t Apple and they aren’t going to sue over something that was logical and eventually even Apple realized was a good idea.

    Wow… Just read the comments, you guys look like Google brainwashed you. I have the latest android and iOS 7 is much better, just admit it. NFC is useless, I still haven’t used it even though everyone in my family has it, I just email it to them. Android has lots of glitches, it’s a known fact, the App quality in the AppStore is better and doesn’t crash every 5 minutes (like the stock android Facebook app). iOS7 also looks much easier to use.

      NFC is useless to you because you clearly have never used it. Faster than email, faggot.

      But hey, well done, faggatron, you have a notification shade now! Oh and there’s that “multitasking” feature you have now also. Airdrop too?! No way, panoramic photo ability?! [everything echos Android, so sharply.]

      • R4

        Panorama has been on iOS6. My point is Air Drop is faster than NFC, much faster, you dont have to go around the room bumping your phone with others just to send a picture. yeah my HTC One has “Multitasking” all it does is decrease the battery life to 2 hours.

        And whats with the homophobia? Im a neutral, im just stating that you guys shouldnt be so harsh on Apple.

        • Trent Richards

          You seem to think that NFC is only for file transfer. We all have had Wifi direct for some time now. NFC is beneficial for things like ISIS and Google Wallet as well as quickly swapping a YouTube video link from one device to another. There is no denying that NFC is the best option for that last example.

          • R4

            ok, imagine a situation where youre watching a video and the person you want to show a video is downstairs, next room or even on the other side of the room. Air Drop would be much quicker than NFC. If you have used AirDrop on OSX then you would understand.

          • Trent Richards

            Ok now imagine that same scenario where they are right next to you or better yet, the scenario I use NFC for the most, wanting it to go from my phone to my tablet for a better viewing experience. Furthermore I have used Wifi direct many times which is basically what Air Drop is so you don’t need to take a condescending tone with me about having never used Air Drop. You are the one saying that NFC doesn’t have its uses and I am telling you that it does. Coming up with some specific scenario where Wifi direct is more convenient doesn’t mean NFC isn’t useful.

      Email everything huh? Well that is fine if you want to live in the 90s but the rest of us enjoy new technology that makes things faster and easier. Furthermore, rather than NFC, we can also share between devices via Wifi direct which is even faster and easier than NFC.

      • R4

        yes that is called Air Drop mate, its what iOS7 and OSX has. Email is pretty quick as well cuz you only need to tap 2/3 times and is the best alternative to airdrop

            Keep up or get left in the dust. Those are Apple’s options.

          • No One

            That is so true but sure every company will do the same.

          • Trent Richards

            Indeed this is not something specific to Apple and the only company that it does not currently apply to is the one leading the pack. Currently that is Google.

        And I know they say WiFi but I didnt comment on that.

      • John-Phillip Saayman

        Looks like you’ve got something against NFC anyway. ..

    It’s funny how the most indepth and well presented article I’ve found is on a Android news website…

    iOS7? Looks good… in some places. New features SCREAM “Android”. There’s nothing revolutionary yet. New icons are much better! I’d be interested to know how AirDrop works… Wifi maybe?

    Apple does a great job with encryption, something we really need to see more of on all platforms.

    Well, I guess this was to be expected. You can get a skinned version of Android 4.1 to get the iOS feel, so why not have a skinned version of iOS 7 to get the Android feel! XD

    Y un gestor de archivos? Y la posibilidad de abrir archivos con otra app que no sea la predefinida?
    I miss a file manager? And what about the possibility of opening files/pdf/videos with differents apps?
    Android win here, no doubt.

    Apple finally catches up to android in some ways. Still not as customizable. I think apple does a better job allowing you to reorganize your incoming order of notifications. However with android customizations you get a plethora of info on locks creek with widgets and customization apps. What apple and android miss is more gestirizarion navigation for apps and turning features on and off instead of tiny buttons. Both need more practical function and navigation features with voice assistants, (read incoming texts, etc.). Both need a true unified messaging app with all communication pulling into one location and the ability to reply back. android needs better battermanagement, apple needs be more open on keyboard api. Apple also needs a third party default app switch options and at least a file management for files on phone and ones downloaded. Android needs better headphone mic functions and allow physical volume controls. Ios still better jailbroken, to truly compete with android. Iphone still better hands free with phone headphone mic (nonbluetooth), and practical hands free voice assistant tasks of interacting back to make corrections to complete tasks. It is what it is.

      You are retarded. You are owner of marvelous Jailphone! congratulations, now your friends must be making jokes of you. (Jailphone now with windows UI and Android innovations for 99.99 contract two years)

    To every nerd out there

    Whatever you shout over there will never be listened by Apple. They are always going to get inspirtion from their rivals and as such.

    So instead of making such angry comments against Apple, can we just stop this shouting, save our energy and try some new apps and give feed back to developers so that these may become a feature of our Android in the near future and a hope of it coming IOS a bit later

    I received this in my inbox this afternoon.

    Dear Hater,

    Here at Apple we “Replicate over Innovate”
    It is much cheaper to “polish up” others hard work.
    If you don’t like it too bad, we WILL sue you.

    Sincerely ,
    Jonny Ives (Apple Development)

    iOS7 is the result of merging the already-existing Android features into the Metro-ish look of Windows Phone. This is not an innovation at all.
