Tips And Tricks For Navigating iOS7 On Your Apple Device.



Did you update your iphone, ipad, ipod to apple’s newest mobile operating system, iOS7?


I think iOS7 is amazing.


Control Center: Just swipe up from any screen and now you can quickly do all of the following.


On the top: Turn on or off Airplane mode, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Do Not Disturb. Lock your screen’s orientation by simply touching your preffered icon.

In the middle:  Here you can adjust the screens brightness. Quickly play, pause, or skip a song. You can also connect to AirPlay-enabled devices.

At the bottom: Quickly access your flashlight, timer, calculator, and camera.

So you see one SWIPE UP gives you so much control!


Notification Center: Just swipe down from any screen and it will help you get   up to speed.


Notification Center lets you know about calls you may have missed, new mail and more. “Today” gives you a convenient summary of your day. On this screen you’ll even get a heads up on tomorrow. You will see birthday notifications, stock notifications etc.

So you see just SWIPE DOWN, and you can get up to speed.


Shutting Down Apps: Tap the home button twice and you will see screens of all the apps that are open. You can scroll left to right to see which apps are open. To shut down an apps all you have to do is just swipe it up.


Camera: In iOS7 the camera offers several options. Video, still, panorama, square. There are also new filters which give users several options. For example you can change the picture to black and white or create different contrasts. The way photos and videos are grouped in iOS7 is also different. Images are viewed as collections based on time and place. This should make it much easier to find shots. I checked my pictures and they are now grouped into Melbourne, Indialantic, West Melbourne, Viera etc.


AirDrop: Now if users want to share say a picture, contact etc. with someone who is right there, next to them they can share this quickly from any app with a share button by tapping share and selecting the contact name they would like to share with. Airdrop then sends it via wi-fi and Bluetooth.


Mobile Browser Safari: Safari has a major upgrade. It has a new design. Open web pages can be seen in a consolidated view, which makes it easier to scroll between the tabs. Shared links fed through twitter can be viewed by tapping the bookmark tab. I tried to check for Viera Homes for sale and it was a breeze.


itunes Radio : Free itunes radio is now available and features streaming radio stations.


Blocking Numbers: Blocking numbers just got easier. Users can block phone calls, messages, facetime from any number or contact. If a user gets a phone call from a number they don’t want, all they have to do is click the info button on the right and scroll down to block. It’s that simple.


Siri : Siri in iOS7 just got smarter. It is faster at answering questions, checks more sources and among other things it can also check voicemail, return calls, and control itunes radio.


Hope all my friends in Melbourne FL, Brevard county and everywhere else will enjoy your apple device with the new iOS7 update.
