iOS 7 boasts many new and improved multitasking interface, an updated version of the Safari browser with an improved tab system, and an ‘AirDrop’ feature that allows iOS users to share photos and files wirelessly between your iOS devices and with others nearby.


Find my iPhone has been updated too and the camera has had some additions that will make it faster to use.

When you received iMessages and SMS previously, there were many who disliked the lack of a timestamp, but now TechCrunch says you can reveal the timestamp for each and every message stating you’ll “never argue about exactly when a message was sent again!”

The always helpful Siri has also been given a voice makeover and can search for more on your phone.
