Did You Switch to Apple’s iOS 7 For Your iPhone Yet?

Hours-long download may be worth the wait for some users wanting new apps and a fresher look.

Did You Switch to Apple’s iOS 7 For Your iPhone Yet?
By  Christa Bigue 

Apple's core operating system for the iPad and iPhone got updated Wednesday with the release of iOS7.

Hundreds of new apps for iOS 7 were released the same day and amongst them were updates to the two most popular social media apps, Twitter and Facebook. The one app that is not refreshed, however, is Instagram.

Some things are different on the new operating system like you used to be able to quit an app by pushing the home button twice but on iOS7 you also double tap but then you have to swipe up with your finger and they will close. Aesthetically, everything looks fresher and more colorful on the screen, too.

Apple describes iOS7 on their website as "the foundation of iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Its lively, intuitive interface and amazing features make everything you do more enjoyable."

Did you upgrade your phone or tablet yet? It can take hours long to download. Click  here for some  tips and tricks for navigating Apple's new iOS7 from TechCrunch.
