ios7-650b

Today way a big day for Apple. After maintaining the same look and feel on iOS to the point of looking old and dated, Apple unleashed a massive and beautiful update to its mobile operating system. iOS 7 is a stunning accomplishment from Apple, easily showing that it’s here to stay… As if we had any doubts.

iOS 7 is pretty on the outside and chock full of goodies on the inside. You can check out all the major features of iOS below and when you are done, hop over to Apple’s website to watch some Vine-like videos showing these features in action. We’ve also linked back to the full WWDC keynote presentation so you can relive the skeuomorphic snark from Craig Federighi and the off-color commenting from Phil Schiller about Apple’s ability to innovate.

    Another STOLEN IDEA from Android’s HOLO UI and WP8 METRO UI combined… Stealing Samsung’s multitasking…

    Soon PATENTED by ROTTEN CRAPPLE…

    THIEF GOT NO SHAME!!

    Smell another lawsuit to Google for Holo UI, Microsoft for Metro UI, and Samsung for multitasking…

    I don’t think Apple stole anything from anyone. If someone stole something from someone that would be Google from Apple. After all, Eric Schmidt was at Apple’s board while iPhone was launching. And judge said Samsung did infringe on Apple’s IP.

    And I’m an Android user, for the record.

    No!
    Who came with pull-down Notification Center first? Android 1.0
    Who came with simplistic HoloUI? Android 4.0
    Who came with flat MetroUI? WP7
    Who came with Multitasking/Multiwindow? Android/Samsung

    And now, crapple just copied everything from Android and WP and called its their revolutionary idea…. What Android can’t do that iOS7 can do?
    Who came first with those feature? Android or iOS?
