I am a lover of technology and I am always a fan on innovation and improvements. Apple’s iOS 7 was released just a little bit ago, and I have had some time to fiddle around with it and I wanted to make a list of seven features that I love and hope you would love about the new iOS 7.

1. Spotlight Easier To Open

The spotlight search is now easier to get to. Whenever you are on your home screen or any page of your home screens, you simply swipe down from the middle of the screen and spotlight appears. This makes it even more easy to look up a contact or start up any app really quickly. Now you can keep your apps super organized into folders and still get to them with ease.

2. Control Center (My Controls Are Right At My Fingertips)

I am sure that many people were looking forward to some amazing new features coming in iOS7, but I will honestly admit that I was looking forward to the quick access to my brightness controls the most. iOS7 comes with a new feature called “control center.” From anywhere, you can swipe up from the bottom of the iPhone or iPad and a pane will slide up with all sorts of controls. One being the brightness controls, but also many other great functions.

3. Folders Are Bigger!

You might be asking yourself, “How do you improve a folder?” The answer to that question is simple. You make it bigger! Now you can hold so many more apps in each folder. So get to organizing!

4. Swipe At Notification Center Launches App

A simple addition to the new iOS is in the notifications that pop-up on your lock screen. When one shows up, you can swipe left to right across the notification and your iPhone or iPad opens to the app associated to the notification. This is one addition that makes your iPhone and iPad work better for your productivity.

5. Improved Multi-tasking

Multi-Tasking has been greatly improved on iOS7. When you double-click your home screen your list of open apps will appear. In iOS7 you are now shown a window of how the app looked when you left it. This makes it easier to quickly recognize what app you are wanting to access.

Another feature added to multi-tasking is the swipe to close function. If you want to completely close down an app you just swipe up on the window preview of the app.

6. built in level

The title of this feature explains it all. It is nothing too revolutionary. It is a simple tool that is nice to have built in.

7. your background changes the whole feel to your phone

The last feature that I love about iOS7 the simple way that your wallpaper can dramatically change the look of your whole iPhone or iPad. This becomes an even better feature for people who want their phone theme to match their iPhone case.

So, those are some of my new favorite of iOS 7.  Let me know what your favorite new feature is in a comment below.
