First unveiled back in June, iOS 7 is the first major visual overhaul of iOS since its introduction in 2007 and features all new icons, redesigned stock apps, new multitasking management, a new Notification Center, a brand-new Control Center, AirDrop for local file sharing over WiFi and even a Spotify competitor called iTunes Radio.
Today Apple has announced that the brand new iOS 7 will be released to the public on September 18th and it will support iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, 3rd and 4th gen iPad, iPad Mini and 5th gen iPod Touch. A later update will add the OS to the iPad 2 and iPhone 4.
The only new additions to the new iOS were a mail voice for Siri in US and other select territories, ‘remastered’ ringtones and a couple of brand new tones.
Probably the biggest news about iOS 7 is that the new OS is now 64-bit compatible. All the stock apps will run in 64-bit and developers will be able to port their apps over to 64-bits with ease.
Apple has also announced that iPhoto, iMovie and iWork ( Keynote, Pages, Numbers ) will come free of charge with every new iOS devices.
