new iOS 7 features

Apple showed off a lot of cool new features in iOS 7 this morning. There’s the anti-theft measure, called Activation Lock, and ‘iOS in the Car,’ which lets users mirror their iPhone screens on in-car displays. And don’t forget about the new iTunes Radio.

But there’s also a lot of stuff in iOS 7 that Apple didn’t talk about today, due to time limitations and other restrictions. And looking at this slide behind Tim Cook at the end of the keynote, there’s at least 24 features that weren’t mentioned today…

  • Enterprise single sign-on
  • View PDF annotations
  • Inclinometer
  • Long MMS support
  • Per app VPN
  • Maps bookmark syncing
  • Phone, FaceTime and Message blocking
  • Smart download of TV episodes
  • Notification sync
  • Night mode for Maps
  • WiFi HotSpot 2.0
  • Scan to acquire Passbook passes
  • Turn-by-turn walking directions
  • FaceTime audio
  • New smart Mailboxes
  • Managed app configuration
  • App Store Volume Purchase
  • Tencent Weibo
  • Chinese English bilingual dictionary
  • Handwriting recognition for multiple Chinese characters
  • Improved Mail search
  • Streamline MDM enrollment
  • Do Not Track option in Safari
  • Italian, Korean and Dutch dictionaries

And we imagine that this is just a handful of the new features in iOS 7. Last year, Apple said that it added more than 200 new features in iOS 6, and this is a much bigger update. So we expect to see tons of new stuff pop up in the coming months.

Remember, this is just the first of what will likely be 4 or 5 beta releases before iOS 7 lands this fall. Also keep in mind that Apple typically saves one or two big features to announce alongside a new iPhone, which too is expected in the fall.
