As expected, Apple has now officially announced its new iOS 7 update that will be available for all "compatible" iPhones, iPads and iPod as of September 18th.
As noted by Apple, the new iOS 7 will be supported on iPhone 4 or later, iPad 2 or later, iPad mini as well as the fifth-generation of iPod Touch. In case you missed the new features, the new iOS flavour will feature the Control Center, new Notification Center, improved multitasking, AiDrop, enhanced Photos, Safari, redesigned calendar as well as improved Siri functionality.
iOS 7 also features a native 64-bit kernel, libraries and drivers to go well with the new A7 chip, a heart of the new iPhone 5S. It will also feature re-engineered built-in apps, offer seamless developer transition, have Xcode support and run both 32-bit and 64-bit applications.
All we need now is to see the new iOS 7 in action. In the meantime, you can check out more about iOS 7 and its features here.
