The long awaited iOS7 update available to download for your iPad and iPhone!
I downloaded this morning and wanted to share and debrief about this new iOS version.
1. You NEED to check that you have the backup on the cloud set on ON and that you have a recent backup on the cloud, then if anything goes wrong, you won’t lose anything and will be able to go back to your content.
2. Have at least 60 minutes of spare time to let the update run itself, on my iPhone it announced a 7 minutes operation and lasted 45 minutes.
Now, iOS7 is installed on my iPhone 5, let’s discover the long awaited upgrades.
The locked screen is graphically slightly different, but you still have access to the photo mode by tapping the bottom right photo icon, and a slide to unlock your phone. The unlock slide prompts the password lock, I disabled it as my phone is never more than 2″ away from me (>settings >Password Lock > off).
Sliding down brings the notification center to the screen as before but now you can see the “today/all/missed” notifications. It doesn’t really change my life but it’s handy.
When sliding from bottom to top, you’ll open essential founctions that before you had to dig down in the settings menu, this is called “the control center”. Now in one tap, you can reach the calculator, the flashlight the calculator, the music, the Bluetooth, the wifi, the airplane mode, the music, the clock/timer/alarm/chronograph and also the sleep and log mode. I like it.
Part2, very soon
