Hide the Newsstand
The bane of many iPhone and iPad users' lives: Newsstand, the e-book and magazine service embedded in iPhone and iPads in the latest iteration of the mobile software, can now be tucked away in a folder out of sight. It's a small thing but it's Apple rolling back a major revenue turner.
Native PDF support
iOS 7 users can now access PDF files straight from their inboxes; something not seen before now. This adds significant weight to the business use case -- as simple as it may seem -- allowing iPhone and iPad owners to view documents on the go without the need for a third-party client.
Quick access to core features
In a bid to catch up with other mobile platforms -- notably Android and Windows Phone, which already offer this -- Apple now includes a quick-access panel to core features of the device. From airplane mode and radio functions, the Control Center also gives users quick access to a flashlight and other applications. Swapping out these apps for others is not yet supported in the beta.
