Apple has done it again. Since its release, iOS 7 has been the talk of iPhone users around. It’s smooth, it’s smart and it’s sexy.
Since iOS 7’s release on Sept. 18, users have had some time to adjust to the aesthetic overhaul. The upgrade is more than just a few pokes and prods at the basic design of the phone.
In changing everything from the home screen graphics to the typography, Apple has completely revamped the all-too-familiar iPhone layout, leaving it with a minimalistic and bubbly design.
Apple has designed a clutter-free home screen with bold colors and flat icons. It ‘s also juxtaposed this simple style with 3D movement and fading images to develop a layout that’s easy on the eyes. As for the practicality of the phone, the Control Center looks to be the most functional, giving users access to the clock, camera, calculator, flashlight and music settings with one simple upward swipe.
Speaking of music, it looks like Pandora has some more competition. IOS 7 introduced the new iTunes Radio, allowing users access to an unlimited music stream based on genre and artist recommendations.
Apple has also made it easier to scroll through and manage multiple pages of Safari by incorporating 3D scrolling tabs. Also, you can now pull up more than eight tabs at once.
It’s hard to imagine that 50 years ago we were communicating via plastic bricks and electrical cords.
For some people, the change will take some getting used to. For me, I feel like the president’s secretary, or Katy Perry’s manager. I feel like I carry the world’s most expensive and impressive object in the palm of my student loan-stained hand.
