iOS 7 is not a big modification functionally from what we are all used to with iOS 6. Apple kept many of things we find out about ways to utilize the os and incorporated them with the design.
Of course, that’s the big modification with the new iOS– the feel and look are newer, some would say flatter. While we were all a bit surprised with the look when it was first introduced, it does not take long to adjust. In fact, there are numerous things I such as much better.
