iOS 7 Parallax Wallpaper Sizes

Adding a new level of “feeling” to iOS 7 is the parallax effect. In a nutshell, parallax gives the appearance that your home screen icons are floating above your wallpaper. If you fancy some “parallax ready” wall papers or fancy creating your own, read on.

How To Find Spotlight in iOS 7

Spotlight in iOS 7

After a week of running the iOS 7 Gm you soon forget about iOS 6 that until you look for spot light.  Remember how you swiped to the left past the home screen to get to spot light?  iOS 7 has changed the spotlight location.

Spotlight is a handy way to search for anything on your iOS device.  To get access to it simple swipe down on any home screen page in the middle of the screen to bring up iOS 7’s spotlight

iPad Alarm Clock Now Part of iOS 7

iPad’s never had a system integrated Alarm clock since the iPad 1. The iPhone and iPod has an alarm clock but why not the iPad a question that’s left mystified many people including myself why Apple never included an alarm clock on the iPad.

Daft as it might seem but the inclusion of an Alarm Clock for iPads is quite a big thing. Most might see the iPad as a 3rd screen, a device for taking to bed or leaving on the side table so it would make sense it would have an alarm feature before now right?

Sure there are plenty of Alarm apps out there on the app store but where the iOS 7 kills them stone dead is that it’s system integrated meaning you don’t have to leave your iPad unlocked or, even worse, have the app running in the foreground and let it dim the screen.

iOS 7 Alarms

Quite simply the view is gorgeous taking a timelines and calendar approach to the whole time and alarm process.

Snoozing with iOS seven alarms

The ultimate dilemma approaches.

Here’s where I’m most torn about this News feature. On the iPhone you have to hit an exact area to silence the alarm when it goes off. On the iPad you simply have to touch anywhere on the screen Making it less of a mental challenge in the mornings so that’s probably going to lead to me laying in just a little bit to longer than I should should do.

My only concern overall is how is it going to look one or two years down the line? Sure it looks like a big brother called departure know that how long till the design style becomes old and stood ?

iOS 7 beta 5: Here’s what Apple’s Fixed : full change log now

Apple today released the fifth beta of iOS 7, which brings a number of improvements, changes, and bug fixes to the operating system, including newly redesigned Settings icons and a Control Center option that allows the feature to be disabled within apps.

iOS 7 beta 5 also offers a slew of minor interface tweaks and improvements that continue to make iOS 7 feel both faster and more polished. Our forum members have noted multiple enhancements that have been bundled into the release:

Settings – The icons in the Settings menu have seen a complete design, going from standard blue icons to a variety of square icons in various colors.

Control Center – Control Center’s settings now allow the function to be turned off while in apps, preventing Control Center from being accessed from the bottom of the screen while playing games or otherwise using apps.

Power Off – The slider bar that displays when the iPhone is being powered off has been slightly altered.

Twitter – The Twitter icon has been redesigned. Rather than a white bird on a blue background, it now depicts a blue bird on a white background.

Notifications – Banner notifications can now be pulled down to access additional information.

Phone – The icons that are displayed while a user is in a call have been slightly altered with the addition of circles around the icons. They also appear to be larger.

Accessibility Options – There are now On/Off toggle options under the Accessibility menu.

Boot Screen – When installing iOS 7 beta 5, many iPhone 5 users noted that the color of the boot screen matched their devices, with a white screen used for white phones and a black screen used for black phones. This differentiation appears to be limited to the iPhone 5 at this point in time as iPad owners and older iPhone users have not noticed the change.

Messages – In iOS 7 beta 4, Apple changed Messages to default to displaying the first name and last initial of a contact in a conversation. With beta 5, only the first name is displayed by default, though other options can be selected in the Mail settings menu (which is linked to Messages). To access the feature, go to Settings / Mail Contacts and Calendars / Short Name (under Contacts).

Additional features in iOS 7 beta 5 will be added here as they are discovered. Apple is likely to continue pushing regular updates for iOS 7, bringing minor performance boosts and changes ahead of the operating system’s public release, which is expected to come in the fall.
