Surprisingly enough, Apple has yet to bring all of its iOS software in line with the design shift of iOS 7, but it's been making slow inroads with almost every week. The latest app to get the makeover treatment is the Remote app for the iPhone and iPad, which brings the whole program in line with the icon redesign it received last month.
The redesign echoes the design of iOS 7, but if you're one of the few who haven't updated Apple's newest mobile OS out of dissatisfaction with the looks, fear not--you have to have iOS 7 to even update it. According to AppleInsider, the update is optimized for iPhone 5.
Most of the changes affect the interface, and the existing features remains the same. As before, Remote allows iOS users to control every feature of iTunes' playback options on their Mac, and Apple TV users can still use the program as a keyboard and a remote control.
With the update to Remote, only iBooks, iTunes U, Find My Friends, and Keynote Remote remain the only first-party apps on the App Store that haven't been bumped up to the new aesthetic for iOS 7. Some of those could be a while coming. As AppleInsider notes, Keynote Remote hasn't had an update since 2011.
