iOS 7 Quick Tips

Apple unveiled their newest operating system on Tuesday, and already it has been adopted on more the 30% of their consumers. With the mad rush of downloads that followed the release, many users experienced some forms of frustration ranging from crashes and download times to the inability to clear the required space due to their favorite photos. With so many changes drastic and subtle changes from the previous iOS it can be hard to recognize the truly great ones.

Here is a list of some of the new and improved changes.

The compass stills exists with a nice new look, but Apple added a handy new
feature. Once the compass is open, all you have to do is swipe the screen to the left and you now have a level. Laying your Apple device back down on a surface shows the angle and putting it on its side acts similarly to a contracting level.

A new search feature was developed allowing users to search through texts,
emails, apps, songs and contacts in one easy place. All you have to do is swipe down on the main screen.

If constantly needing to update your apps bothers you the wait is over. By going to Settings > iTunes & App Store you can switch updates to automatic.

One of the most convenient new features is the control panel. By swiping the screen up from the bottom the control panel will appear. From this interface you can control screen brightness, WiFi connections, song choice, flashlight, camera and more.

iOS tracks your browsing history when using the internet. This makes it easier for companies to develop ads aimed towards you. This can be switched off by going to Settings > Privacy > Advertising and flipping the Limit Ad Tracking to green.

And last but not least with the change in font the whole iOS has a brand new look, but for some people it might make the text harder to read. Going to Settings > General > Text Size you can drag the slider at the bottom to increase the size of the text.
