iOS 7 – Shiny.. Happy people?

With so many people eager to update their iPhones & iPads, Finally iOS 7 will be available to everyone for download tomorrow (18th September). It’s available for the following devices:

  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 4S
  • iPhone 5
  • iPad 2nd , 3rd & 4th Generation
  • iPad mini
  • iPod touch 5th Generation

The new interface, along with its new features, such as built in torch, ‘spirit level’ (part of the compass app) and enhanced Siri integration will mean it’s an update definitely worth having. Hopefully we won’t see any issues like we saw with the iOS 6 update (remember all those problems with melting maps?). Some of the bright colours may be a shock to some, but they will match the candy-coloured world of the new iPhone 5C.

Siri is now out-of-beta too (at last) and seems to work much better than it did in iOS 6.

Some of the best features (such as Airdrop, allowing you to easily share files with computers running OS X 10.7 or later or other iOS devices running IOS 7), the updated Music app (which is very good in our opinion), the camera app and the new better laid-out photo gallery all make the update welcome.

But most of all, what do you think of the interface? In some places it’s a welcome refreshing change, but in others there seems to be something missing. Maybe it’s just because we were used to all that real-world design that was part of the iPhone since day one. Like an old pair of slippers.
