5 Surprising New Features Found in iOS 7

Although Apple’s iOS 7 is completely different than what their customers are used to, there are a few surprising features that may be found very intriguing

Users of the new iOS 7 have a lot to discover. Some of them are uncovering some very interesting features that they did not expect to find.

Ability to Change Theme

While it’s not possible to completely change the theme of the new design, there is a lot users can do to change the feel of their devices. Simply changing the background does much to customize the look and feel. The background transforms the lock screen, dial pad, and passcode screen.

Quick Daily Calendar View

There might be some who think that the helpful daily overview has been removed, but it has just been moved. It might not be as easy to find before, but it is still there. Locating it means hitting the search magnifying glass located up at the top of the screen.

Easy Relocating Newsstand

Not all iPhone users enjoyed the prominence of Newsstand on their phones. Many were searching desperately for a way to hide it from their screens. Before, the app could not be stashed away in a folder, but now it can. This new feature allows users to easily compile all of their news sources into one convenient location.

Quit Multiple Apps

Instead of going through the once necessary, verytedious task of double-tapping home and long-pressing icons to quit apps, users can now simply flick the thumbnail after doing the double-tap. The flick can be done on several app icons at a time. The change is might make things only a bit faster, but it is helpful.

Unlimited Apps in Folders

There was a limit of only 17 apps per folder in iOS 6, but in iOS 7 there is no limit. This feature is great doe those who tend to download many apps. It makes organizing the home screen a lot easier.
