Tag Archives: iOS7
We tried so hard to hate iOS7, and I mean tried. Pre-launch, we had heard developer complaints, ruminations of irritating changes to basic functionality, and the negative hype was oh so tasty, we couldn’t wait to chomp down. But post-release, we just couldn’t find much of anything wrong with the upgrade. We asked our friends, our colleagues, IT friends. Instead, we got what you’ll see below. Here’s a list of why the new iOS7 is amazing and our Android-loving writers have even lost their contempt for it.
1. It’s Pretty
One of our readers told us the following: “How I described iOS 7 to a friend: It’s really gay. No, I don’t mean in some derogatory way. In a bright, colorful, rainbow-y way.”
Now that Apple has finally shown iOS7 to the world, there have been very mixed feelings from the media (See here, here and a poll here) about the future of Apple’s latest update to the “world’s most advanced mobile OS”. There have been tons of upgrades and enhancements and the entire OS was redesigned by Jony Ive. The OS is now lighter, faster and smarter.
But there will always be people who disagree with Apple’s update to iOS. After all, iOS isn’t for everyone. No mobile OS is. But with all that we have seen, and we haven’t yet secured developer access to an iOS7 beta, we think it would be pretty hard to say that the latest release of iOS7 is nothing short of amazing.
