    Cheers but I'll stay clear. Current beta lasts a month then you will need to upgrade... So if they patch beta 2 you could end up with a brick until the official release comes out.

    In car enhancements sound great on this but its gonna take time for manufacturers to implement them.



    Today at WWDC, Apple has announced iOS 7, the latest version of the company's mobile operating system.
    , the overall look has changed as a result of Jony Ive, Apple Senior Vice President of Industrial Design, who was
    to be giving iOS a
    after expanding his duties beyond hardware design.
    As previously rumored, the overall look of iOS 7 evokes a significantly more "flat" appearance, in contrast to previous iterations of Apple's mobile OS. The new typography is exceptionally crisp throughout, and the interface has an almost frosted-glass look with translucent menus. Amazingly, tilting your device with iOS 7 offers a 3D perspective, essentially allowing you to look behind open panes.

    Swiping up from the bottom of the device screen opens Control Center, a translucent menu filled with a number of settings buttons. From the menu, you can control brightness, play music, and even access a flashlight. New multitasking features will work with "every app," and simplifies the process by backing the apps out as panes, then allowing simple swipes between apps.
    Safari has also received a redesign, including some of the features--like iCloud Keychain--
    . Swiping left and right will move through your browsing history, and more of the screen is dedicated to displaying content, as opposed to menu bars. Air Drop has also made its way to iOS 7, and sharing pictures and other files with nearby friends looks as simple as tapping their avatar.

    Photography has grown into an important factor with mobile devies, and as you mgiht have imagined, iOS 7 includes some changes to Camera and Photos. Filters are available right within the Camera app, and switching shooting modes only requires a swipe. Apple admitted organizing photos in iOS could be a real pain, but new data filters like date and location should cut down on those long columns of images.
    Another big feature announced during today's keynote: iOS in the car. According to Apple, a large selection of manufacturers will start integrating iOS into their vehicles in 2014. Essentially, iOS will appear on the car's dash screen, and Siri will allow you to check messages, get directions, and make cals without taking your eyes off the road.
    The long-rumored iTunes Radio app will be free for all iOS users. The Pandora-like streaming music service will utilize ads, but iTunes Match subscribers will get an ad-free experience. The service attempts to analyze your musical tastes to serve up recommended tracks, taking advantage of the full iTunes music library.
    Lastly, there's no need to go in and manually update your apps any longer. The new App Store will automatically update all apps (finally). iOS 7 will be available this fall for iPhone 4 and later, iPad 2 and later, iPad mini, and fifth-gen iPod Touch.

    Nothing groundbreaking again. Just a few features nicked from other OS's and apps.

    Car thing is a bit pointless IMO.

    Not keen on auto updates for apps either, hope that setting can be modified.

    I stuck it on last night and I like it to be honest - it's not like using an iPhone though and really is the biggest change.

    As it's beta 1 it's buggy and the interface is all over the shop - ie some apps show new widgets and keyboard and others use the classic ones. Guess it's down to the SDK used to generate that app.

    Some of the eye candy is very nice though - the parallax effect on wallpaper is pretty awesome, but you'll get bored of it eventually.

    I read that the design team were moving away from a design which mimicked real life buttons and dials to, well, this. To me it looks more like Android now and personally I liked the real world dial design. Cant see any point to update my pad/pod which are still on IOS5, although something I wanted to try did stipulate it needed IOS6 to run, I just thought fuck it.

    You need a dev account or someone with one to register the device or it will not activate and work
