iOS 7 (multiple iPhones, flat)

I’m sure technophiles by now are aware that Apple restricts beta code to registered developers, but that didn’t stop iOS 7 Beta 1 from popping up in a lot of places on the web.

You can’t blame the curious types for wanting to get a taste of Apple’s most important software upgrade since the iPhone’s inception.

But as a side-effect, those unfamiliar with Apple’s betas are taking to blogs to write about crashes, UI inconsistencies and allegedly missing features. To be fair, teething issues are the norm for major software releases, let alone betas.

But tell that to concerned citizens who are blogging about iOS 7 “issues”. We’ve scourged the web for top complaints in order to lay out Apple’s thought process and explain why some features are “missing” in the first beta and what can be expected from upcoming beta releases…

Battery life, sluggishness, crashes

One of the top complaints upon installing iOS 7 beta is drastically reduced battery life. I, too, have experienced the poor battery life syndrome on my iPhone 5, especially during the first few hours of use. For what it’s worth, it stabilized the following day, though still a far cry from where it was in iOS 6.

Some of the blame can be put on iOS 7 taxing resources by attempting to back up your device to iCloud (if enabled in Settings) right after installing. But that’s not the real culprit behind aggressive energy consumption, general sluggishness, unexpected quits and sudden resprings and restarts observed in iOS 7.

I’ve experienced these standard issues in all prior iOS betas.

See, they are calling it a beta for a very good reason.

It just makes a whole lot of sense from the engineering standpoint not to waste time during the early stages of development optimizing code for performance and efficient battery consumption – that’s usually the job of so-called Gold Master, a final version candidate ready for release to manufacturing.

Then there’s the matter of speed.

Just like battery, iOS 7 will have been optimized for speed once all of the features are in place and all of the kinks had been worked out.

Outside the beta issues, people are also beginning to notice that some iOS 7 features are inevitably hardware-dependant: not everything will work on any iDevice out there. Apple’s own list of supported devices mentions Filters in Camera, which is only available on the iPhone 5 and fifth-gen iPod touch, as a resource-intensive features.

Another hardware-dependant iOS 7 feature: all-new motion backgrounds, which don’t seem to support or even exist on non-A6 devices. We’ve seen Apple play this game before wit Siri, originally an iPhone 4S exclusive, and Home screen wallpapers that can’t be had on the iPhone 3G.

Voice Memos

As a journalist, I’m not a huge fan of Apple’s stock Voice Memos app (I prefer Recordium for its powerful annotation, tagging and editing). Many casual users appear to be totally oblivious to the very existence of Voice Memos and Apple tucking it inside the Utilities folder isn’t helping.

So what’s the deal with “missing” Voice Memos in iOS 7?

Rather than kill the little-used app, Voice Memos just wasn’t a priority in an early beta. Here’s your iOS 7 Voice Memos icon, whenever it will be added.

iOS 7 (Voice Memos icon)

Though it comes in handy for capturing quick soundbites on the go, Voice Memos in iOS 6 with its skeuomorphic microphone interface is obnoxious. We of course expect a flattened version to re-appear in later iOS 7 betas.

If you go to Settings > General > Usage in iOS 7 Beta 1 and hit the Show All Apps button and then scroll down, you’ll notice an app without an icon.

Voice Memos (iOS 7, Settings, App Data blank icon)

That’s right, Voice Memos.

I’m also hoping Apple will sync our voice memos via iCloud and not just with iTunes.

Twitter and Facebook in Notification Center

I haven’t realized how handy tweeting and posting to Facebook straight from Notification Center is until I wanted to tweet out a quick thought only to realize the feature is “missing”.

iOS 7 (Notification Center, Lock screen, Missed)

Rest assured, though, Twitter and Facebook sharing isn’t going anywhere.

This first beta has Facebook and Twitter sharing in many other places throughout the system. One example: selecting an image in the Photos app and hitting the Share button lists Twitter and Facebook as sharing choices.

This is what photo sharing via Facebook looks like.

iOS 7 (Photos, Share to Facebook 001)iOS 7 (Photos, Share to Facebook 002)

Like before, you can provide context to your post by typing in a photo caption, choosing a location and limiting the post to a specific audience on your Facebook profile.

Example #2: the Maps app enables location sharing via Twitter or Facebook.

iOS 7 (Maps, Share to Twitter 001)iOS 7 (Maps, Share to Twitter 002)

Speaking of Maps, OS X Mavericks comes with a brand new native Maps Mac app where you can shoot locations and even directions to your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad via a new Send to iOS item found under the Share menu.

OS X Mavericks (Maps, Send to iOS teaser)

So, just because an early iOS beta won’t post to Facebook or Twitter from the Notification Center doesn’t mean subsequent builds won’t. And considering how useful Notification Center sharing is (no need to switch apps), you’d be hard-pressed to suspect Apple killed this tremendously useful capability.

By the way, Cody did a nice overview of key Notification Center changes in iOS 7. Among the highlights: Lock screen access to your alerts and a Today stream, a new Notification Center section listing only context-based alerts that matter to you.


Ah, the icons.

Nothing is more polarizing than the controversial new-look stock app icons in iOS 7.

Endless words have been written about their inconsistent appearance. I, for one, absolutely have no problem with the iOS 7 icon design, except for the uninspiring Newsstand icon.

iOS 7 (Newsstand icon)

One of the oddest arguments used in Apple’s defense is that Jony Ive tasked Apple’s print and web designers to draw the icons. From my vantage point, this couldn’t be farther from the truth. Those alternate iOS 7 icons uncovered from Apple’s own servers, you say? Likely an old marketing material.

None of this is saying people aren’t nit-picky in regard to how iOS 7 icons look like. Folks will be staring at these things every time they pull an iPhone out of their pocket so the looks is obviously concerning many.

iOS 6 vs iOS 7 icons (teaser)

I doubt the iOS 7 icon controversy will die down anytime soon. The thing is, Apple really can’t please everyone. Users who are like “Overall, I like the changes, it’s just those icons” should of course be eager to jailbreak and install their own icons.

Native LinkedIn sharing

OS X Mavericks adds LinkedIn to its natively supported sharing services.

This allows for single sign-on capability where users can post links to LinkedIn from any app that has implemented Apple’s standard Share menu. Strangely enough, LinkedIn is nowhere to be found in iOS 7 Settings, unlike system-wide Flickr and Vimeo sharing for image galleries and videos.

iOS 7 (Settings, Flickr and Vimeo)

A week before WWDC, a sketchy source told me Apple’s in fact bringing native LinkedIn sharing to iOS 7. The feature is likely to surface in one of the upcoming beta releases, but there’s a chance it won’t be ready for prime time come this Fall, in which case a firmware update could fix that.

Screenshoting, EDGE toggle, UI inconsistencies

In addition to the aforementioned biggies, Twitter is complaining about the inconsistencies and some notable oddities in iOS 7. One such example is screenshot taking, which doesn’t appear to work with slide-to-power-off on the Lock screen.

To me, the most annoying inconsistency is the enhanced gestural language not being applied throughout the system. To get you up to speed, in addition to swiping up from any screen to access Control Center and pulling down on any Home screen to bring up Spotlight, iOS 7 also makes extensive use of right swipe, whih takes you back hierarchically.

It works like a charm in apps like Safari where left/right swiping loads the previous/next web page or in Settings, where left-swiping take you back to the parent section.

iOS 7 (Messages 005)

This great little time saver hasn’t been implemented in all places – yet. There are also some missed opportunities. For example, wouldn’t it be nice if you could navigate between individual chat sessions in Messages by swiping (something akin to chat tabs, if you will)?

Be that as it may, Apple is likely to apply swiping as a system-wide gesture for navigating to the previous level. You can see signs of this right upon waking your device from sleep as you can swipe-to-unlock anywhere on the Lock screen.

iOS 7 (Safari, Bookmarks, Shared Links)

Another example of inconsistency: Chat Heads-like profile images in Shared Links, a new Safari feature that lets you see all the URLs in your Twitter timeline, who posted them and what they had to say about them.

iOS 7 (Phone, Favorites)iOS 7 (Settings, Phone)

These circular contact photos are also found in the Phone app’s Favorites (you can disable them in Settings, see above), but not in Messages. Again, seeing an image of the person I’m messaging would be really helpful, even more so in group chats.

As an interesting side note, Apple has also taken visual cues from Facebook Chat Heads and Google+ in other places, too, such as assigning an image to a contact (below).

iOS 7 (Contacts, Assign Image)

Finally – and boy do I hope Apple brings it back – iOS 7 Beta 1 lacls a handy toggle in Settings > Cellular to tell your device to use the slower EDGE cellular networks.

iOS 7 (Settings, Cellular)

The weirdest part: choosing between 3G and EDGE was actually possible before – until iOS 6, that is.

While early iOS 6 betas has the switch in place, it got inexplicably removed from later releases for no apparent reason.

But wait, there’s more.

The Clock app now displays real time, but the much-reworked Weather app won’t show your current temperature on its icon. Web reports assert Apple doesn’t want to tax the battery by polling your location unnecessarily in order to retrieve current temperature in your area.

Speaking of Clock, you can now tap the watches to switch between analog and digital clock faces.

Pretty neat!

iOS 7 on iPads

Apple didn’t feel confident releasing an iPad build of iOS 7 to WWDC attendees, which didn’t stop enthusiastic developers from screenshoting iOS 7 running on the iPad emulator in Xcode 5.

Here’s the Home screen on an iPad in portrait, via an iDB reader who probably wants to stay anonymous.

And in landscape.

Here’s Notification Center.

Cody has more and we’ll be posting additional iPad screenshots as we receive them.

Summing up…

iOS 7 will undergo several revisions before it’s ready for public consumption this Fall. That being said, please be advised that many features could – and likely will – change in subsequent betas.

Some things will get scraped, altered or re-introduced, graphics could get updated, the overall design will be refined and bugs will be squashed in the run-up to the final release.

Such is the nature of beta software.

Even ex-Microsoftie Steven Sinofsky withheld his judgment because iOS 7 is in beta. And he should know: dude brought Windows back from ashes. On the other hand, Android’s recently-minted boss Sundar Pichai is enthusiastic about trying out iOS 7 (one has to keep tabs on what competition is doing).

So there you have it – don’t think any particular iOS 7 feature is set in stone until Apple finalizes the operating system.

As for the “missing” stuff and hiccups, my colleague Oliver put it best.

In his write-up titled “Calm down, it’s only a beta,” Oliver offers a simple advice to those unsatisfied with the state of iOS 7 Beta 1 – just downgrade to iOS 6 and call it a day.

If you’re expecting the final shipping version of iOS 7 to be as buggy as the first beta, and for apps to crash like they do now, or for the aesthetics to be just the same, then you’re wrong.

Knowing a lot of people are excited about the upcoming revision to Apple’s mobile operating system, I’d advise everyone to keep in mind it’s a work in progress.

  • Sentry

    Good god so much of iOS 7 on iPad looks abismal. 🙁 No wonder they barely brought it up.

    • Osama Muhammed

      i still cant believe APPLE is making those stuff

    • Taf Khan

      I think a feature is due on here for the best iPAD themes. Not managed to find anything half decent lately, the best themes are on iPhone and iPod.

    • Sigurd Boe

      Its just a mockup of a guy on twitter. He has more pictures, and some things are stretched and distorted so it gives away how fake it is pretty easily. You can even see the flashlight button on the iPad mockup hasn’t been removed.

      • Matthew

        Could you tell me the twitter?

  • f1ght3r

    You missed quick reply for messages.

    • kraigeriginal

      Well… it’s not technically “missing” – though I’m with you, it SHOULD be here already.

      • dpacemaker

        I think it will be displayed with the next iPhone, but hopefully not solely for that one, like they did with Siri not on the 4.

    • Adham

      When I heard they added some sort of Quick Reply to OS X I was thinking “OMG It will come on iOS 7 too!” but then no mention of it whatsoever. So I hope it’s added in a future beta!

  • Shane Sepeda

    I don’t know about you guys, but I used the spotlight search to do google searches all the time. Now I can’t click on search on web anymore in spotlight 🙁

    • Chéu

      Yes you can..
      Just swipe down in a middle of the home screen!

      • Shane Sepeda

        The option for search from web doesn’t pop up anymore.

      • John

        Not for Google at least 😉

  • Roger Riekki

    Yeah I’m staying jailbroken on iOS 6 thanks.

    • Andrew

      Me 2. iOS6+JB rocks the shit out of iOS7!

      • Jason Duong

        iOS 7+JB=Death of Android.

        I kid, I kid. =]

    • 4p0c4lyps3

      Yes, I believe I am with you.

  • Tiago Alexandre De Noronha

    “Safari and the handy Private Browsing switch.”

    I got your point Christian ahah.

  • bob

    where is the dynamic wallpapers 😉

  • Nico Spatola

    It blows my mind that folks on the web are crtiquing iOS 7 based upon nothing more than the appearance of the desktop icons. I’ve been using iOS 7 on my iPhone 4S for the past two days and the icons are the smallest of the changes to the UI. In fact, I love them. In use, iOS 7 is all about frosted glass panels, truly gorgeous typography, and well integrated gesture based control. That said, the new icons are totally hit-or-miss and I hope they put it some work to get them right between now and October.

    • RyanB

      Okay, so you ‘in fact’ love the new icons! But ‘that said’ ‘you hope (Apple) put in some work to get them right’. Dude, stop hopping over the fence, choose a side!

      • 4p0c4lyps3

        Jesus Christ, rlly? Worthless, who gives a shyt.

      • John

        If you are trying to be all cute about misspelling the word shit then don’t use profanity.

      • John

        And rlly?
        Looking at his display picture, isn’t he a bit old to be using words like ‘rally’ and ‘shyt’ ??

      • John

        He is probably trying to be a teenager again.

      • Nico Spatola

        I like most of them, I think they look great… however, Settings, Game Center, Camera, need some touch ups

    • John

      I’ve never heard of anyone calling springboard icons desktop icons. Is it shocking to you that people don’t like looking at ugly icons? I mean the Newstand icon looks like it was made in paint and they put three magazines covers on it.

      • John

        Isn’t that what Newsstand is…newspapers and magazines.
        It does make sense that the Newsstand App icon is (sit down for this as it MAY just blow your mind) newspaper and magazine covers.

      • John

        What an intelligent reply I got back. “Isn’t that what Newsstand is….newspapers and magazines”. I would have never thought that at all. Since you obviously thought it would be cool to be a smart ass and say (sit down for this as it MAY just blow your mind) newspaper and magazine covers. I don’t think you ever noticed that I was saying how ugly the icon is with three images of that look like they were pulled off of Google Images and put on a white icon. Instead you think I never knew what Newsstand was.

  • Zafti

    “For example, Messages doesn’t let you navigate from within a message by swiping (Mail does, though).”

    Yes it does?

    • Jamie Tilden

      Yeah man, it does for me too. I dunno what’s up with these guys.

    • dpacemaker

      Yup iPhone 5 on iOS 7, and it works perfectly. I’ve also had no battery issues, and only a few crashes. Mostly when I am showing the panoramic lockscreen.

      • John

        A little OT, but, no crashes, but shitload of battery problems.

      • dpacemaker

        I had battery problems for a few hours, but I found that if Bluetooth was off when not needed my battery had zero issues.

      • John

        Not so much now though, not with beta two…though I do like how the iPhone turns WiFi and BT on/off when it’s needed and not needed.

      • dpacemaker

        I haven’t seen it do it automatically. Is this somewhere in the settings that I somehow overlooked? If so please share.

  • HassanShah

    So can we batch upload to Flickr and does Flickr integrate with the photos app? Would be great if we could see our Flickr photo stream/sets in the photos app

    • John

      Batch upload: Yes.
      Flickr integration: Not that I can see. Good idea though, suggested it to Apple yet?

  • John

    One of the things I haven’t heard anyone mention. In the music app of iOS 7 you now have to scroll through all the tracks of an album before you get to the artist’s next album. And it sorts them by year. Very annoying, especially if you have a lot of albums by a particular artist and you want to listen to a more recent one.

    • Wissam Nasser

      dude didn’t you read the post ? it’s just a beta calm down ! it’l change or there will be at least a option to change that.

      • John

        It’s a beta? Thanks. Next time I’ll read the post. So happy I can calm down now and you sure saved me from a heart attack. Thanks ‘dude’.

  • Gróf Attila

    I hope they can increase battery life in iphones as they did with the Mackbook Airs.

    • dedegarrido

      keep hoping because that’s not happening LOL. They improved the macbook air battery because intel improved it’s CPU/GPU and it’s more power efficient now. Maybe on iPhone 5S? 🙂

    • Adham

      Probably unlikely without a hardware upgrade.

  • Anibal Schumacher

    The new flat dock seems to me like it clutters and makes the screen look smaller

  • Guest

    Hey everybody in 2 days, june 18 is no LOL day… Nobody can write ”lol” for a whole day! What do you guys think?

    • RyanB


    • John


      LOL at you!

  • Falk M.

    I’d love some multi-windowing on iPad. Similar to Surface and Android… *cough*

    And yes, there are quite a lot of use cases for this.
    The app store itself has apps that (for example) combine a browser and a note taking panel.
    Problem is, that those apps are mediocre and with a true multi-window OS-wide feature, developers of already trusted and tried apps could implement this and I could pick the best of both worlds when it comes to dual tasking (or hell even doing more than 2 window things, maybe something running in the background etc)

  • TesticularFortitude

    What I find most disturbing in all of this is Christian referred to himself as a ‘journalist’.

  • Diego Gastón Milano

    I am on iOS 6 and I do have a switch to turn off 3G and switch to EDGE (I don’t have LTE in my country) and I also have the kill switch for Cellular Data which turns off all data on cellular restricting everything to WiFi only.
    Am I missing something or I misread the article?

    • dedegarrido

      you misread it… he is saying that iOS 7 doesn’t have the EDGE toggle

      • Diego Gastón Milano

        I’m not sure that’s the case. I’ve just read it again and understood the same out of this:

        “While early iOS 6 betas has the switch in place, it got inexplicably removed from later releases for no apparent reason.”

        Mind you, maybe he is referring to not using neither LTE nor 3G? I only have 3G where I live, so by switching off 3G it switched to EDGE. If I want to stop using EDGE, I just disable the data via cellular via Settings and that’s it.

        Again, it’s not very clear.

  • Ricky

    I just realized viice memo is gone hahaha but the file folder when you lookk via iexplorer its still available. Btw does ios6 beta 1 this much lag and battery issue??

    • LH2613

      Are you talking about ios 6 or 7?

      • Ricky

        6 does ios 6 beta 1 have battery and lag issue?

      • LH2613

        Well… Most people on iphone 5 say 6.1.3 & 6.1.4

      • John

        Are you asking whether this time last year there were all these problems?

        Yes, but most people were concerned with the fact they had no idea how to work Passbook.

  • Techsticles

    Am I the only one that’s going to miss the skuemorphism? I like all the little features which will probably keep me around but iOS7 is starting to look like everything else.

    • John

      In short, yes…though, use Mavericks for 5 minutes and you realise just how different some Apps are compared to others and how much you won’t miss it.

      eg. Difference between Calendar and Game Center.

  • Conor

    one of the things i hate the most is that currently you cant search the web or wikipedia straight from spotlight search… but obviously it will be back in later betas… but i cant wait for them to fix some of the other features you noted above!

  • Silvelix

    I don’t know why those new ios 7 icons hurt my eyes. Is it the color or the flat design?

    • Jay Kay

      go and consult the Dr.

  • maurid

    “I doubt the iOS 7 icon controversy will die down anytime soon.”

    You got that right. They’re an eyesore.

  • maurid

    Please tell me this is just a bad dream. Please tell me that when I wake up I’ll have a good looking OS, and not a horrible Winterboard-theme-ish UI.

  • Matthew

    I just thought you guys should know a few things a bout those pictures of iOS 7 running on an iPad. First off, the first picture of iOS 7 on iPad in this article was not in the Xcode 5 simulator. How so I know this? In the simulator you can not have a home screen background. So that is either fake or somehow he got his hands on the iOS 7 beta for iPad(Lucky!). Same with the second picture. The third, fourth, and fifth were in the simulator. Then the next three couldn’t have been in the simulator because they showed all the settings. The simulator will only show some settings. Lastly, in the simulator it says carrier in the top left and not a real carrier. So I don’t know how this guy got these pictures. Care to explain?

  • 4p0c4lyps3

    On another note. Also, if I cannot place my god damn icons whr I wnt on the screen I will b über disappointed. Just sayin…

    I miss the ability to rate songs…i hear *a lot* of songs and to rate them on the go was great…i even ask Siri to do it for me but told me could only do it with iTunes purchased songs 🙁 hope the final release have it

  • Peter Bentson

    They need to add so much to ios 7 yet! Tap to tweet, tap to post (facebook), the unlock sound back, more dynamic wallpapers, live tiles or widgets, multiple keyboards, more customization, never lock firmware from this point forward, better autocorrect, etc. Needs more of a wow factor!! More and more i use it it feels like a dressed up ios 6 with a theme on it. Come on Apple blow the doors off……

  • Cristiannnnnn

    Spotlight search does not exist on my iPhone. Even when I swipe down. I’m I the only one?
