Shelly Palmer Radio Report – June 17, 2013

Long-rumored and highly-anticipated, Apple finally showed off iOS 7 last week at its Worldwide Developers Conference. Featuring a cleaner and simpler interface, iOS 7 borrowed the best parts of Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone and melded it into one clean package. Swiping up from the bottom of the screen now brings up Command Center, which gives you all the controls you want in one place – music playback, screen brightness, Airplane Mode and more. For the first time in iOS history, iOS 7 offers true multi-tasking, which will be available for all apps when the operating system hits your device this fall. iOS 7 also features an improved version of Safari and a re-designed camera system that lets you easily swipe between multiple camera apps, like Instagram. Siri got smarter and more robust, too, and now features more voices – both male and female – as well as support in both French and German. iOS 7 is out for developers right now and will hit your iDevice sometime this fall.
