Apple released their revamped mobile operating system, the iOS 7, last Wednesday. Now available for download at the Software Update section, the latest software iteration is compatible with iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, and iPhone 5; iPad models with Retina Display, and the fifth-generation iPod Touch. Along with the iOS 7 are more than 200 new features, which include the following:

AirDrop
This feature is a new way for users to easily and quickly share content with nearby iPhone users.

Control Center
This gives users quick access to controls they want in one convenient place. All they need to do is swipe the bottom of the screen.

Full-screen Browsing with Safari
Safari’s redesigned user interface features a new smart search field that helps simplify web searching. There’s also a new view for bookmarks and Safari tabs.

Improved Multitasking
Users can now switch between apps in visual and intuitive way with Improved Multitasking. What’s cool about this is that iOS 7 pays attention to apps that are used frequently and keeps the content automatically updated in the background.

This allows users to add real-time photo effects and square camera option. They can also switch between four cameras—video, photo, square and panorama—quickly with just a single swipe.

Notification Center
Now available from the Lock Screen, the Notification Center lets users see all of their notifications with a single swipe. It also comes in with a Today feature, which shows a daily summary of a user’s day—including traffic, weather, meetings and events.

Photo App’s Moments
Moments is the new way to organize photos and videos based on time and location automatically.
