iOS 7 was unveiled during the opening keynote of Apple's WWDC on June 10, 2013. Billed as the "biggest change to iOS since the introduction of the iPhone", the most notable change is a complete overhaul of the user interface.

Control Center is available by scrolling up from the bottom of the screen and provides access to settings such as Airplane Mode and brightness, media controls, AirPlay and AirDrop, and shortcuts to several apps including a built-in flashlight, compass, calculator, and camera.


iOS 7 builds on the limited multitasking introduced in iOS 4 and provides full multitasking for all apps. The multitasking layer also provides for background updating of apps at the same time notifications are pushed to the device, and previews of all running apps.


Safari in iOS 7 integrates the smart search field first used in Safari 6 for OS X and Mavericks' iCloud implementation of Keychain. Other changes include infinite tabs, parental controls, and improvements to Twitter sharing and Reading List.


iOS 7 integrates Apple's ad-hoc WiFi sharing feature AirDrop for the iPhone 5, iPad 4th generation, iPad Mini and iPod Touch 5th generation.
