iOS 7: release date and all the new features
Apple iOS 7 was a closely guarded secret that did not leak out until the official introduction of the new iPhones on September 10. If anything, it definitely seems like Tim Cook has doubled down on secrecy, and while a beta version of the software has been available for a while, the average consumer has a lot to look forward to with the impending roll-out of the revamped OS.

The exact time iOS 7 will be released is unknown, though if history repeats itself, your iPhones should start getting the green light at around 10AM PST on September 18.

Now that you have a more concrete time frame, as far as iOS 7's release date is concerned, lets turn to the actual features of the new software. For starters,  iOS 7 gets rid of the skeuomorphic design and exchanges it for a clean, modern look under new platform design chief Jony Ive. But it’s not just the looks. iOS 7 catches up with the competition and finally introduces true multitasking, and a brand new control center with quick access to toggles and music controls, and a new notification center.

All apps have been redesigned to match the new design language and you can take at our concise rundown of all the new features in iOS 7 right below.

They wait and watch what other giants bring to the market. And then after couple of years they merge all those features together and say "Innovation".

What a shame.....

That's what I'm wondering ZeroCide. I didn't catch a hint of racism from you, and I sure as hell ain't racist.

Go to wikipedia and type in: Drinking the koolaid. This will educate you more on that. Next time you call someone racist make sure it is.

Jim Jones is what I\'ve always known the statement to be about. Zealots standing in line to be served what they\'re told to take even if it\'s bad for them.

How is Kool aid a racist term? I come from a pretty racist town, thought I\'d heard all the phrases, but I\'ve never heard anything about Kool aid. BTW, I loved Kool aid as a kid, but not so much now. Too sweet.

I'm sorry for jumping to conclusions, I have heard of the term. I am black and when someone brings koolaid into the convo, it's usually to be racist

I agree that in the world still exist such problem like a racism, but in our days some people tend to cry about racism even if in certain situation there is no racism at all. Also some people tend to manipulate by crying about racism, it is just pathetic! In such way they just attract negativity to their race.

I think he was referring to Jim Jones the cult leader.

That is where that reference started. There have been other cults that drunk the kool-aid.

Like the Apple one :)

From all your postings around here it seems like you do give a rats a$$. You seem to be constantly defending apple for their shadely business practices. I too like koolaid mine is tropical punch made by kraft foods. Its good as long as long as its not the apple flavor that most isheep seem to drink.

Lol apple flavor. +1 I caught that, I appreciate good humor. Seriously though, I care what my job does, they pay me quite well. I have no stake in apple, nor am I employed by them. They are however one heckuva company. I also admire Cook for the tremendous amount of pressure that dudes under, having taken over for a great and brilliant icon in Jobs. This is grown man talk, not fanboyism hate. Recognize son.
