The coming change in Apple product naming

The "i" in iPod, iPhone, iBook, iPhoto, etc. may soon disappear. iKnow, right? It's had a bumpy history, and though catchy, has been too easy to hijack. Apple Watch is probably a glimpse of the future for Apple's product names.

If you have not already done the upgrade to the majestic iOS 7, you must know that this is one of the best updates Apple has done to their OS. Unfortunately some of your Apple hardware is not capable of handling the new software update, like iPod Touch 4th gen and under, the original model of the iPad. While the iPad 2 is capable of receiving the update, is is not able to use one of the key features called AirDrop. This new update only makes things easier (and colorful). Instead of double clicking to access your music, brightness setting, lock orientation, and sound, you can now slide from the bottom of the screen up to have quicker access to these features, along with some newly added ones. Airdrop, being the newest addition, is a tool to simply transfer data over a private Wi-Fi network, it has been added to the menu along with the abilities to turn on and off airplane mode,, wireless communications, bluetooth, "Do not disturb". Lastly, it gives you access to your alarm and photos with a simple touch; so it makes easy access, when you are in a hurry. Many of the OS apps that aren't downloaded from the AppStore have been updated for iOS 7. The calender has become a much easier tool to manage, with it having a scrolling method for each month and quicker access to the Home/Work calender tool. The Music app has added iTunes Radio, which offers free access to a large variety of music using your internet. Safari has gotten a visual makeover with a couple new features. One of those features, being that your address bar is now combined with the search bar, now you can enter in a website link or a phrase to look up, it knows the difference well. The other feature is pretty handy for knowledge seekers, you can easily go back and forward pages by swiping from the left-edge of the iPad over to the right to go back, and vice-versa to go forward. I find this a small yet easy feature to take advantage of when I'm quickly looking for information, and not having to touch a small arrow to go back a page. The downside to iOS 7 is the wait for the apps to fix the bugs the new update will cause to their software. Being an avid-player of Sonic Dash, I have to close every one of my apps (double-click the home button and slide up) for it to work successfully. This is a bit frustrating because the old iOS could multitask it without any problem. So, eventually there will be a fix for it and other bugged apps, so we will have to play a waiting game with the developers. To conclude, the wait may have been long to download and install this new OS, but it was definitely worth it. I recommend it for anyone who has the ability to do so, to try it out. You're not losing much, only time. This fresh coat of paint is exactly what the iOS software for our Apple products needed.

There are torrents out there for the iOS7 that is to be released in the Fall. It's up to you to take the risk. I have friends who have gone that route and I must say, the upgrade is pretty awesome.
