Get the most recent on iPhone/iPad technology: Ipads Advisor

Apple made a great deal of considerable modifications in iOS 7, and a few of those will be immediately familiar to those who’re running the most recent variations of Android. As is commonly the case, Apple has ‘borrowed’ certain attributes from competing operating systems, and we have counted at least seven that were part of Android initially.

1. Control Center


Sure, it’s an elegant name and it appears from all-time low of the display rather than the top, but iOS 7′s brand-new Control Center is extremely just like Android’s notice pane. It provides access to fast setups toggles for things like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Airplane Mode, as well as music playback controls.

Control Center does have a little more functionality, nonetheless, with shortcuts to useful apps like the Calculator, Clock, and Camera, too.

2. Lock Screen Design

This one needs no explanation truly– just look at the image above.

3. Dynamic Wallpaper

It functions a little in a different way to Android’s, rather than moving as you scroll between house pages, the iOS 7 wallpaper moves as you tilt the screen. It’s just a slight motion, however I think it’s an excellent addition to iOS 7– much better than a static wallpaper.

4. Multitasking Previews

This is one of the features I called for in a piece I composed earlier this month detailing ‘7 Things iOS 7 Ought to Pick up from Android.’ It’s to do with time Apple offered us multitasking previews, which let’s see exactly what’s going on in our apps before we really dive into them.

Again, it’s a little various on iOS– apps scroll horizontally as opposed to vertically– however it’s the same idea. It also utilizes the exact same swipe to close apps.

5. Automatic App Updates

Automatic app updates is an additional function we were requesting a lot prior to iOS 7, and it’s another attribute that’s very popular on Android. It means you do not have to update your apps by hand– everything happens in the back ground and you never ever need to fret about it.

And before you ask how you’ll understand whether an app’s been upgraded, you’ll receive an alert to tell you.

6. iCloud Keychain

iCloud Keychain lets you sync conserved usernames and passwords with Safari on your Mac and Safari on your iOS devices (finally!), so you no longer have to bear in mind every one of compose them down and risk getting them lost or taken. This is exactly the exact same feature Google Chrome offers to Android individuals.

7. Safari Tabs

Apple made lots of modifications to Safari– similar to all its various other inbuilt apps– and among those was providing it a brand brand-new look, with a brand-new tab layout. And you’ll observe that Safari’s tabs now look a lot like Chrome’s. Rather sitting alongside either other, they sit in front of each various other, like a deck of cards.

And like in Chrome, Safari lets you swipe away tabs that you no longer demand.
