iOS 7 busted out of Cupertino mere days ago, yet adoption of the new operating system for Apple’s iPhone is already knocking at the door of its predecessor, according to analytics provider Mixpanel. Considering iOS 6 burnt the sky with the speed at which it was installed when it hit last year, I guess iOS 7’s popularity is not surprising.
iOS 7 is here! It’s different! It’s beautiful! It’s… terrifying! Not brave enough for this brave new world? It might not be too late to go back. Past a certain point it’s going to become virtually impossible to put iOS 6 back on your phone, but for now you may be able to postpone the inevitable. Be warned: The road ahead is treacherous.
There’s little question that iOS 7 is the most transformative update to iOS in its six-year history. It’s not just about the flat design. The first time I laid hands on the new operating system, I felt like I had a new phone, one that looked prettier and, more importantly, felt more useful.
When Apple showed-off the new, flat iOS 7 at this year’s Worldwide Developer Conference, everyone laughed hardest at one simple joke: “no more stitching? How does it all stay up there?”. The death of skeuomorphic design in iOS is just the beginning: what if apps like calculators and calendars looked nothing like their real-world counterparts and developers created new, out-of-the-box designs for time-trodden and traditional things? Meet the most beautiful calendar concept you’ll ever see: one that’s not anchored in the old design of cubes, pages and months — a modern calendar for a modern age.
It’s not a good sign when the best iOS features are imaginary ones designed by people who aren’t getting paid to do it, instead of, you know, being designed by Apple, like this revamped vision for iPhone multitasking. Apple, steal this now.
Whenever you bring up jailbreaking with the uninitiated, you’re faced with that one, recurring question: “Why? Why should I jailbreak?” This beautiful, functional, better-than-stock lockscreen is as good an answer as any.
Apple has been keeping busy rolling out small patches for iOS 6. The latest, iOS 6.1.3 beta 2 just hit developers. Importantly, 9To5Mac reports that the update fixes the gaping lock screen bug that allows access even with out a passcode.
