Apple is all set to release the new iOS 7. Here are the top four reasons users should upgrade and look to the future. The success of the new operating system is important for Apple as it gets mixed response for its newly launched iPhone devices.
Reason# 1: Gaming
Apple was showcasing the game series "Infinity blade" at the launch of its iPhone devices. Analysts believe that it was done to underline the importance Apple places on gaming. The iOS 7 could be big on gaming!
Apple with the iOS 7 intends to take on the hand held playing devices like PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS. It is reportedly encouraging developers to take advantage of the new A7 chip on its mobile devices.
Availability of apps that are based on the iOS 7 makes the adoption more appealing to the users. This has been traditionally the strategy adopted by Apple. New apps will also be available which can take advantage of the "parallax effect" on the iOS 7.
Reason# 2: 64-bit architecture
Fans have treated the newly launched 64-bit architecture on the new iPhones with scepticism. Many believe that the apps currently in store will not be able to take advantage of the 64-bit architecture.
Apple is already allowing developers to submit apps that take advantage of the new iOS 7. Analysts feel that users may not be able to ignore the difference in performance. What is more intriguing is that 64-bit is seen as an eventuality that other manufacturers will have to adopt.
Apple has the first mover advantage. The lessons it will learn while rolling out the iOS 7 with its smartphones may be invaluable in the long term too. Analysts also feel that the difference in the performance of the apps will also become apparent to users.
Reason# 3: Fine tuned iCloud
Apple has launched the new iCloud which seems to be inspired by the iOS 7 design. The updated Web site is available for all the users. The app icons match the ones available on the iOS 7 like mail, contacts, calendar, reminders and notes.
The user interface could be much better with the new iOS 7. Apple fans are eagerly waiting for the release.
