iOS 7 is more than just a fresh coat of paint. Along with the new icons, lock screen and animations, Apple's revamped mobile operating system includes dozens of changes to the way we interact with our iPhones and iPads, from major new features to subtle enhancements that make navigation a whole lot easier. We've tracked down 90 of them, so fire up the new Notes app and get comfortable.
Happy iOS 7 Day! In just a few short hours, we'll all be crushing Apple's servers by updating the operating system on our iPhones, iPod touches and iPads with a fresh new user interface -- assuming we don't send the internet to its knees in the process, that is. Let's celebrate the occasion with a handful of stories you might have missed yesterday!
Apple really wants you to know that the iPhone 5s has a smokin' good camera, and to prove it, the Cupertino giant teamed up with Burberry to shoot the fashion label's video for its Spring/Summer 2014 show entirely on the iPhone 5s. The video from yesterday's event runs for 15 minutes, although Burberry also released individual photos and short video clips on its Instagram account earlier in the week.
It looks like all those folks who've been camping out for the iPhone 5s might have the right idea, after all. Based on reports from numerous sources, the iPhone 5s appears to be suffering from limited inventory ahead of its launch. It's certainly believable, as even this morning reports were coming in that iPhone 5s preorders in China had depleted the available stock not long after they became available.
Apple issued a press release to remind the world that there are new iPhones arriving this Friday, while the latest flagship iPhone 5s appears to have sold out almost immediately after preorders launch early in China.
While Verizon Wireless, AT&T and T-Mobile US have all started appealing to frequent smartphone buyers with early upgrade policies, Sprint has instead clung to its claims of being "truly unlimited" — until now, that is.
This week's hottest news story — duh — was the iPhone 5s and 5c, so our weekly wrap up of the hottest news is pretty much all iPhone all the way. So if you just got out of jail or you are waking from a coma or somehow or other you weren't near anything that broadcast what we call "news," then this one is for you. And if you like reliving Apple's latest and greatest unveiling, this one is also for you.
When the news broke earlier this week that we could start ordering the iPhone 5c online as of 12:01 a.m. PST this morning, it seemed only natural to assume that'd we'd be able to do the same for the iPhone 5s next Friday. Today in a mass e-mail, Apple confirmed that those suspicions were correct. The big difference, of course, is that you might as well just trying walking into the Apple Store if you want one on September 20.
The iPhone 5s might look a whole lot like the iPhone 5 it replaced, but under the hood it's a whole new animal. Speed and security is the name of the game, but there are plenty of little improvements to keep it ahead of its competitors. And if you still want your friends to know you're rocking the newest model, there are enough external changes to set it apart from last year's handset. Here's a look at the most exciting upgrades and enhancements coming with the iPhone 5s.
