Apple has a very new design coming this fall in their updated operating system. Here are a few of the new features:
Multitasking – learns when you like to use your apps and can update your content before you even open them. If you check Facebook at 8:00 am every day, your feed will be ready and waiting for you.
Camera – All of your shooting formats – still, video, panorama and square – are front and center. New filters let you edit each image – make it black and white or change the contrast quickly.
AirDrop – This lets you quickly and easily share photos, video, contacts or anything else from any app with a Share button.
iTunes Radio – Streaming radio stations available on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, PC and Apple TV – all free. The more you listen, the more personalized it becomes.
Dreamdays: cost:$3.99 – Focus on key life events like birthdays and anniversaries. Use the app to build “countdown screens” – enhanced with personal pictures and fonts. Share the events on Facebook or Twitter.
Find my iPhone– cost:free- Track your missing iPad, iPhone, iPod or Mac. This provides an accurate location and also enables you to remote-lock or wipe off the device.
1Password – cost: $17.99- With 1Password, you need to remember only one password, i.e., the master password for the app itself. All your other passwords will be stored inside the app and you can automatically open any website without filling any forms twice. The app has strong security features.
