We continue to discover interesting new features in iOS 7 thanks to the developers who were seeded the first beta version earlier in the week.
Here are some of the changes that have been discovered in iOS 7:
iOS 7 comes with a completely redesigned Weather app, which is powered by Yahoo. reddit user astraphobiczeus reports that the Weather app also shows the time of the sunrise, which is a nice touch.
The news may be dominated by the hardware coming out of Apple, Microsoft and Sony right now but that doesn’t mean that we can’t get excited by software anymore, and that includes websites, social networking websites to be more precise.
Arguably the biggest website of the all is Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook, and the planet’s most popular social network has today invited media to an event scheduled for June 20th at the company’s Menlo Park headquarters in California.
During the event a new product will apparently be discussed.
iOS 7 beta has spent the past five days firmly in the public eye, and although opinion is divided as to whether the changes are for better or in fact for worse, the consensus seems to be that the icons are a tad on the bright side.
However, it now looks as though the Cupertino company has been tweaking things behind the scenes, with the official iOS 7 beta page on Apple.com showing altered, altogether more subtly toned icons. Details after the break.
Most were expecting iOS 7 to bring a plethora of changes to the fold, and so Monday’s announcement proved. The tech world was clearly not, however, braced for how generally bright the new OS would be, and as such, there has been quite a fuss kicked up following the opening day of WWDC.
Twitter announced last week it was redesigning TweetDeck and giving it a fresh look and feel. Today, those changes hit the OS X version of the social networking app.
The latest version of TweetDeck has a powerful, new sidebar that gives you quick access to items like your columns, your lists and the settings. You can also create a new tweet and search from this sidebar.
Search is more powerful, too, with the ability to filter column search results by the minimum number of retweets, favorites, and replies.
Microsoft has released a new Windows 8 tablet ad featuring Dell XPS 10, which pokes fun at Apple’s iPad. The ad is part of the company’s Windows 8 tablet vs iPad campaign, which started in May.
It is being widely speculated that the ad campaign is the reason Microsoft hasn’t released an iPad app for “Office Mobile for Office 365 subscribers” that hit the App Store earlier today.
