Deep dive into the features
With over 1,500 new APIs, iOS 7 opens up new mobile experiences. Some of our favorite new features include:
Apple's UI framework now has a physics engine built in — UIKit Dynamics. Using a simple declarative API, your apps can now have immersive animations that feel realistic and simulate real-world behaviors for objects in an app.
Make your users happy and your apps more dynamic by using the powerful new multitasking features of iOS 7 to do work in the background and consume less battery power.
More network power
Core Bluetooth Low Energy protocol makes Bluetooth tasks even easier. Apple's iBeacons build upon Bluetooth Low Energy to give your applications location support that can work indoors, enabling scenarios based upon device proximity that previously were not possible.
New text and image capabilities
The newly added Text Kit framework lets you programmatically control text in applications without low-level Core Text coding. New Core Image filters let you turn images into compelling experiences.
