Announced in June this year, the new version of iOS7 is available from 18/09.iOS7

The output of the vice president of Apple, Scott Forstall, the man going to design Jony Yve, in my view the great play of devices Appel, being the most significant change indicates that this new version, the design, already criticized by some as very childish, but is also more intuitive and less complicated.

A good example of this is that the quick menu, besides the photo feature, also has a flashlight, a calculator and clock, which is accessible at the screen saver.

The Facetime is also more practical and simple conversations are the increasingly common use.

The design of the icons, with new color choices, favoring more cheerful tones and clear, and coming to the minimalist look of the screens, mainly white, took a clean tone.

Personally I still opting for Androids, more robust functionality and greater number of developers of free applications
