First Impressions of iOS7
Installed iOS 7 this morning and have been using it on my black iPhone 5. These are just a couple of my first impressions of the OS. If you would like to know about anything more or in more detail, please ask; I'd be more than happy to answer!
- Audio over bluetooth is greatly improved.
- Battery drains really quickly with this release
- The icons aren't as bad as I thought they'd be...except for Safari. That one's a little rough.
- The gaussian blur effect is a nice subtle touch.
- iTunes Radio works really well. However you are limited as to how many skips in a row you get. I think it's 5. Even as an iTunesMatch subscriber.
- iTunesMatch works on this release.
- The OS is pretty snappy and responsive.
- You can now hide Newsstand in a folder. (FINALLY!)
- Darker, solid wallpapers look great!
- 3rd Party apps still have elements of the old design language. i.e.: Keyboard, Buttons, Backgrounds, etc...
- You can make the text even smaller than the default.
- I still haven't opened the Stocks app.
- Audio controls in 'Control Center' work for third party apps. i.e.: SiriusXM
- Camera app feels even faster now
- The Parallax effect effects notification badges.
- Disappointingly there are no new sound effects to choose from as of right now in Settings.
- There is Flickr and Vimeo integration in the OS.
- You cannot customize toggles in Control Center.
That's all I could think of off the top of my head. Again, if you'd like to know something specific about iOS 7 i'd be more than happy to try it out and get back to you!
Thanks for reading!
