“Hidden” Features Improve iOS 7 Usability
When Apple recently updated the iOS operating system for its smartphone and tablet devices, many of the changes, especially the screen graphics, were immediately evident. A few of the new features, however, were less than obvious.
CNet.com has posted a list of what it considers to be the top four usability features of the new OS. A key example is the ability to customize which functions can be accessed from the iPhone’s lock screen.
When the phone is locked, swiping up from the bottom of the screen is a shortcut to the Control Center. Many of the phone’s settings and utilities, including volume control, airplane mode, and WiFi configuration, are accessible through the Control Center. Customizing which functions are available in the control center can be done in the Settings menu.
