Apple: the company that took the world by storm five years ago has now come out with a new and improved software update that has revolutionized the way people see technology. But what exactly is iOS7? And how will it fare with other technology that has come out?

News about iOS7 has been spreading like wild fire. It is the cutting edge technology that is sweeping the nation.  iOS7 is “the foundation of iPhone, iPad, iPod touch” according to apple.com.

“I think it’s going to be successful” senior Ryan Kelly said. “I like that they are taking a new direction with more customization.”

One of the many things that Apple improved on is the home button. Apple improved this feature by adding in Touch ID which allows the user to unlock their home screen by scanning their finger print as well as make purchases in the same way.

“iOS7 isn’t an advancement,” junior Cy Hadakul said. “Apple only made iOS look better and more user friendly instead of focusing on quality.”

Another new feature that comes with iOS7 is the control center. With it, users are able to access brightness, Wi-Fi, flashlight, calculator, camera, lock rotation, Bluetooth and control music volume. The control center can be accessed from the home screen, letting users dictate what goes on with their device with a simple slide of their finger.

“It makes it more convenient to do tasks like turn on airplane mode,” Kelly said. “[Which I do] every day at school.”

Other features for iOS7 include swiping between modes on camera, Air drops which allows users to share photos with friends around them without having to bump devices, iTunes radio and Full screen browsing on Safari.

“The design goal of iOS7 was to take familiar and loved operating system and make the experience of using it even similar more useful, and more enjoyable according to apple.com.

Some people however weren’t pleased with some of the changes.

“I don’t like the new design,” freshman Simran Mahan said. “I don’t like how they changed the icons.”

Along with iOS7 came the iPhones 5s and 5c. iOS7 comes with both phones so there is no need for time to be wasted on tedious downloading.

The colors available for the 5s are Gold, Silver and space gray while the colors for the 5c include white, blue, pink, green and yellow.

New features for the 5s include A7 processor, 64 bit architecture, slow-motion video: 120 frames per second (fps), and a thin, light design. The 5c on the other hand has the HTC Mini A6 processor chip, 4 inch retina display and 8 MP iSight Camera.

iOS7 came out Sept. 18 and the iPhone 5s and 5c came out Sept. 20.  Regardless of whether or not people like or dislike the changes, it seems as though this new software is here to stay. At least, until the next phone.
