Apple has unveiled iOS7, the latest version of its iPhone and iPad operating system.
iOS7 has a new flat design, devoid of the skeuomorphic style of previous versions.
- New MacBook Air's also revealed
- New tiny cylindrical Mac Pro announced
The new software uses a completely new 'flat' design that eschews the skeuomorphic styling of all previous versions of the software. All built-in apps have also had a facelift to tie in with the new design.
New features have also been added to the OS, including a new thumbnail view for multi-tasking, a new much more integrated version of Maps and a new Weather app!
Apple also confirmed that now all apps will have multi-tasking available to them, rather than the previous arrangement where only certain functions such as music playback would be available for multi-tasking. The company also claims battery life will improve.
Perhaps the most welcome new feature for many users is a new quick settings panel that provides quick access to media playback controls, quick settings toggles, brightness control, AirPlay controls and app switching. The new interface is available with a swipe up from the bottom of the screen.
