iPhones iOS7 Helps With Travel and More

12 Nov

I found an interesting article on Foxnews.com that talked about the new iPhone iOS7 update and how it has impacted travel in a positive way. The article went over 10 new exciting features. I figured I would take a look and highlight some of my favorites.

Find My Phone:

There is now an enhanced featured call Find My iPhone that allows users to remotely find “lost or stolen devices, rendering them virtually useless to would-be thieves.” This is reassuring and might make thieves more weary of stealing hopefully.

Camera

A new camera app allows you to capture images in new ways. The app lets you take consecutive(ten per second) photos, which may be helpful if you are seeking that marvelous shot at the precise moment. It is important to note that you need to be fairly still while taking a photo because the lens will not refocus after each shot. Apple is always looking for new ways to please their customers. Before, they released a panorama feature that had people very excited and now they can shoot ten shots per second – a sure hit among Apple users.

Maps

Has Apple finally got it right with their native map app? I sure hope so. A lot of people cried out after they released their follow up to Google maps on new devices and many were rushing back to the latter. It was only a matter of time before Apple got it right and I am hopeful this is true. The map/navigation feature is crucial on smart phones and it would be detrimental if Apple didn’t put their best foot forward a second time around.

AirDrop

It is now more easier than ever to share photos and files with other iOS users. The system can recognize other devices through Wifi and Bluetooth bridging the gap between phones. Say your friend has a photo that you know will take them forever to upload, just have them shoot it over to you and go for it!

Apple is a great company that continues to innovate and please its user base. Initially, there were reported kinks with the new iOS7 update, but it seems that time heals everything. I was happy to come across this article because I was skeptical of updating my own iPhone. It seems that it’s finally time and I look forward to experiencing the new features!
