5 Ways iOS 7 Is the Apple Innovation You've Been Waiting For

While the iPhone 5S may not have been the groundbreaking phone techies hoped Apple would announce last week, a big change has arrived to its mobile ecosystem that'll make fans feel like they have a new device, whichever generation iPad or iPhone they're using: iOS 7. What's the big deal in the new mobile operating system? Here, the five updates you soon won't remember living without.

  • Multitasking, multitasking, multitasking! — Can you tell we're excited to finally multitask swipe between apps on an iPhone instead of going through the double-click Home button to find recent apps routine? What Android users have long held over iOS stalwarts is finally a reality for Apple devices. It's not true multiple-app view like Samsung's Galaxy S4 phone has, but quickly swiping through recent apps was at the top of iOS users' wish lists.
  • Camera — Filters is the name of the camera game with iOS 7. Pictures get Instagram ready before even leaving the app with a built-in square crop and all the vintage looks you might need to make that latte look old-timey.
  • Control Center — Again, something Android users had enjoyed, the Control Center of iOS 7 gives users access to phone settings, lock orientation, volume, and AirPlay settings. Swipe up from the bottom to change settings as well as screen brightness and music play.
  • Auto app update — Manually pressing Update in the App Store is downright primitive now that app updates auto push. Good-bye to the red notification bubble reminding you how many apps need attention.
  • AirDrop — Android has the bump to share. Apple would never make you bump anything; instead, mobile sharing is in the AirDrop. Like the original desktop version, share media instantly with nearby contacts, no phone-to-phone touching necessary.
