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.
Live switching and multitasking
When switching between apps -- a feature that has been reworked from the ground up -- apps are no longer in stasis. Apps now update live, meaning you can flick through and see exactly what is going on over each app as it's happening -- from videos to clocks and stopwatches.
