So, after a long wait iOS 7 has arrived. Although the developer version was out to test and I tested it way before the release, but now its available for all.
At first iOS 7 may look totally different to you, the fluorescent area and new icons for your favorite apps can struck you as a newland.
We will be helping you with some basic and advanced features, which are bit confusing at start. Although Tim Cook has given a sneak peak at almost all major features and how to use them at the event. Still we need to polish our senses a bit, about the all new iOS 7.
Some of you may know these tricks and are using iOS 7, but we will try to keep these tricks from beginner level to advance so that you may learn a thing or two. If you know all these tricks before hand then you can know few more of these, share them with us in the comments below.
Search in iOS 7 (Swipe Down)
In iOS 7 to get what you need by typing in on spotlight is shifted to the top of screen, where you need to swipe down and enter text to search.
As far as i know, there was a ‘search on web’ feature, which is no longer available now, but I personally feel that it was useless. I haven’t used it since ages.
Toggles are here (Swipe Up)
Another great addition here is the Flashlight button, so now you don’t need to download an app for flashlight anymore. While playing games this swipe up feature may interrupt, but you can easily switch it off from settings.
Timestamps in SMS
Now you can simple swipe to left, inside your SMS and iMessage chats to get the timestamps. Before there was no such option to view a multithreaded message with timestamps on all the messages, you could only see timestamp at the beginning of chat.
Trust me it does help, when you get into an argument over who sent it, and when. I love this feature.
Level your workspace
The great thing about this app is that, you can reset the screen level to 0˚ at any point. Thought its a bit dull in looks but pretty effective.
Safari Scrolling and Closing Tabs
Now you can view Tabs of Safari in 3D interface with swipe to left feature, which closes the tab instantly.
There is also an “X” button to close the tabs, but I know all the iPhone users will love to swipe and close the tabs.
Block a number on iPhone
You can now block a number in call/sms/facetime within iOS 7 settings. You can find the settings @ Settings > Phone > Blocked; Settings > Messages > Blocked; or Settings > FaceTime > Blocked
Until now there were apps doing this blocking but now iOS 7 gives this important feature in this update. These types of update really give you hope about future updates on iOS.
Cell Usage/Blockage with App by App Feature
Just go to Settings > Cellular and scroll down, you will get a list of apps using the most cell data and simply can turn off the app to use cell data.
