7 Things You'll Love About iOS 7

From surfing the web to staying connected with Facebook and FaceTime, sharing photos and HD video to going places with Maps, having fun with games, music, movies, and everything in between, your iPhone is no ordinary phone. And, if you have the iPhone 4 or a newer model, there's even more power packed into your device with the introduction of iOS 7. Take a closer look at seven of our favorite iOS 7 features that you're sure to love.

Control Center
Control Center allows quick access to some of the most commonly used controls and apps from one easy to find menu. Just swipe up from any screen, and Control Center appears along with functions for Airplane mode, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Music, flashlight, Calculator, Camera, screen brightness, and more.

AirDrop for iOS
AirDrop could prove to be one of the most popular features in iOS 7. Users can now quickly send other people pictures, videos, contact information, documents, i.e., pretty much anything that has a Share button. And, for those of you worried about security, all AirDrop transfers are encrypted. It's as simple as hitting Share.

iTunes Radio
iTunes Radio features streaming radio stations that will appeal to even the most eclectic tastes in music. You'll find this feature in the Music App, free of charge. Choose a pre-set station based on theme or genre or create your own custom station with artists and songs you know and love. And the best part, the more you listen, the more personalized your stations become as your iPhone gets to know your musical preferences.

Camera App
Photo enthusiasts will be thrilled to hear that they can now apply filters to their pictures with the revamped Camera App. Users will no longer have to rely on third-party apps to add cool effects to their images. There are nine filters to choose from, and they can be applied either before or after a photo has been taken to add amazing effects to your images straight from your iPhone.

Multitasking
While multitasking itself is not a new feature, this functionality has been overhauled resulting in a brand new "look and feel." The new multitasking panel allows users to view full screenshots in the app history instead of just icons, and toggling back and forth between apps is super quick and easy. And when it's time to pare down your view, close any open apps with a simple "swipe up" on any app preview screen.

Automatic App Updates
In iOS 7, you no longer have to worry about updating your apps every time a new release is available. iOS 7 keeps track of the latest app updates and automatically pushes them to your device. If you want to know if an app's been updated since the last time you used it, look for the small blue dot near the app's name on your screen.

Featured Bonus Content - Click Images to Enlarge

Get the answers to tons of questions with help from your virtual assistant, Siri.
Watch movie trailers and bonus scenes in stunning HD and rent or purchase the latest movie blockbusters to view on the go.

Well written and easy to use.

This book certainly has helped but it needs to be even more simple for senior citizens or perhaps an "extra dumb" version for people in way over their heads.

I wanted to find something specific in the book just now, and I discovered there's no index in the Kindle book!

I had purchased this for the parents and at first glance, appeared to be a good manual. But after they started to read through it discovered it was still too technical, unlike the theme of the typical "dummies" manuals which are intended to be written in more 'plain English' language.

This book covers EVERYTHING!! It's almost too thorough, as the authors describe every tiny possibility that can be accomplished on the iPhone. That's the only critique that I have about this book. I would have preferred to have read all of the major, and more likely to use, options first, and then a separate listing in the other half of the book, of those which one would rarely, if ever use. For instance, how many users would want to list their phonecalls in separate categories, such as club-members only, old school chums in another, and office workers in a third category, etc.? Most people prefer alphabetical order--it's faster. The main options that most of us are interested in, aside from making and receiving phonecalls, are learning how to take and send photos, synching emails with a computer, and how to use each icon listed on the main menu. A brief rundown on how to use them without going into every minor possibility (and there are many) that each one can perform, would have been less confusing. Most of the many minor details could be described in the latter half of the book. I was in a hurry to start using my phone, admittedly, and did not want to wade through all of its fabulous side-bars. As for using passwords, those who are familiar with computers would not be likely to have any problems understanding and knowing how to make and use passwords, however, in that category a novice might be at a loss, as the book assumes that everyone is computer savey. The only "problem" I had, was my own fault. After learning how to synch my computer with the iCloud,and receiving a congratulatory email on my computer that I was now on the iCloud, I was unable to load any emails onto my iPhone! I should have known--the computer needs to be turned on in order to read one's emails! Well, the authors left out that information--how was I to know? :-).

Format: Paperback
When the author wrote that Apple hasn't included a SIM eject tool in the United States since the iPhone 4 after I had just unboxed my new iPhone 5s and found a lovely SIM eject tool, I knew the book was going to have problems. According to the author, I should use a straightened paperclip as SIM eject tool. The chapters are sparse, and I was especially disappointed with the section "The multimedia iPhone" as it really didn't get into using iTunes and getting music from your pc to your phone. You can supposedly get extra info online on different topics, but why not just include it in the book? I think the answer to that and the other problems with this book are found in the Authors' acknowledgements when they thank everyone who helped them turn around the book so quickly: so quickly, it's inaccurate and includes useless info (the ten apps you must have and ten apps worth paying for). Your better off just downloading the iPhone 5 manual from Apple.com.

Don't waste your money on this book. This book is very, very poorly written. Sentences often cover many topics, change topics in the middle, and have several parenthetical insertions. And grammar mistakes abound. I have been fighting this book for several weeks and gave up today and ordered a different one.

Don't waste your money.

The book I bought to replace this one is "My iPhone" by Brad Miser. It is published by Que. I highly recommend it. And it costs less than iPhone for Dummies.
