In about one hour Apple will be announcing the new iPad, iPad mini, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C (I hear S means Security and C means Cheap), and possibly other iDevices. These latest Apple products will ride on iOS7 so we have compiled for you what to expect with iOS7.

1. Control Center

This is the Apple’s answer to Android’s quick access Notification Panel. With iOS7 users will now be able to quickly access Airplane mode, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Do Not Disturb Lock Screen’s Orientation and Brightness. Other controls available are Play, Pause, or Skip a song; Connect to AirPlay-enabled devices, Flashlight, Timer, Calculator, and camera. What Apples has done differently is to enable the Control Center be accessible even from lock screen.

2. Notification Center

This too is part of Android’s Notification Panel. The Notification Center is going to provide summaries of missed calls, text messages, emails, and tasks. The Notification Center also has a feature called Today that will provide summaries of the day’s events including notification of friend’s birthdays etc. Whereas Control Center will be accessed by swiping up, Notification Center will require you to swipe down also from any screen including lock screen.

3. Improved multitasking

What I like about the promises of the multitasking is the bit where apps will be able to know exactly what you want to do with it before you open them up. For example Facebook app knowing that you are able to access it at 10 a.m. and preparing the news feed ready.

4. Camera controls

Camera will feature easy shot with swipe. Also introduced alongside still photo, video and panorama is the square shot. iOS7 will also allow you to apply filters before or after taking a shot.

5. Photo grouping

Photos will be grouped by location and date. You can easily scroll down the memory lane and see photos taken at a particular location e.g. photos taken when you were at a certain place during a trip in 2015 2014. As with Facebook’s introduction of Group photos, iOS7 will allow for shared photo streams via iCloud.

6. AirDrop

This is the answer to Galaxy SIII’s and later NFC’s file sharing tool. With AirDrop you won’t need to touch the back of the phones. AirDrop will transfer photos and files from one iPhone to the other via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth just by enabling entering AirDrop…just like that and the file is shared. They say the sharing is encrypted so you won’t need to worry about security.

7. iTune Radio

For streaming favorite online radios.

8. Siri

Promises of a better Siri is Ok but Bing? Well I think Google knows a lot more stuff than Bing so here, like Apple Maps, iPhone users won’t have a wide data source.

9. Find My iPhone

This is now integrated in the iOS. Meaning even if the thief won’t be traced, no one will ever use your phone. One must have your credentials to access it. Big up Apple.

10. iOS in the car

iOS will seamlessly integrate with the car’s dashboard to have Siri take control letting you take care of the road.

In a few moments we will give you the latest on iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C.
