The biggest announcement at this week’s Apple developer’s conference was the announcement of a new operating system for Apple’s mobile devices like the iPhone, iPad, and iPod. iOS 7 will have a new cleaner look and plenty of new functionality. Siri will be smarter and you will have the option of using a male voice as well as the current female voice. There will be an activation lock to deter thieves and the photo app will be improved with filters and in-app editing.
Two new features that I applaud are the ability to get to the settings menu by swiping up with your thumb and the fact that now app will update automatically. There will also be a big update to Safari. In fact, if you have a compatible device, you will have a lot to look forward to with iOS 7. It will be available as a free update this fall.
