We then got a peek at the new functions of SIRI. SIRI on iOS 7 can now search Tweets and also has Wikipedia, inline web search, and photo search options.

Check out what else was announced…

iOS 7 Features

We have spoken about the iOS 7 beta versions many times over the last few months, and during the keynote speeches we saw some of the features that will come with the Operating System. Camera’s features, with built-in filters and easier modes along with the gallery automatically grouping photos into “moments” and “related collections.”

iOS 7 has been completely reengineered for 64-bit. Apple’s apps are also 64-bit.

iOS 7 also has iTunes Radio which at the moment is only available to the USA, it has been deemed “the best way to experience new music.” It works a lot like Pandora, so you can create your own stations.

iOS 7 has an official roll out date of September 18th – For iPhone 4 and later.


iPhone 5C

The iPhone 5C was the first iPhone announced in the keynote speeches, and has been labelled as fun and colourful with the incredible technology of the iPhone 5. As you know the 5C has a range of colours, with the same colours as the iPod touch. Take a look here for some of the colours of the iPhone 5C.

Johnny Ive has stated the iPhone 5C as “iPhone 5C is beautifully, unapologetically plastic.”

iPhone 5S

The iPhone 5S was the next device on the list, which comes in some strange colours: Official iPhone 5S Colours: Silver, Gold, and New Space Gray. One of the things that really surprised me was the graphics of this new iPhone, it is using OpenGL ES 3.0which means they can add “Lens flares that would make J.J. Abrams proud.”

The demo of them running Infinity Blade III is lagging a bit and comments have been made that the game is stuttering. However, hats off to them for trying this out LIVE.

Battery Life – An important part of any iPhone. This is what you will get out of the battery: 250 Hours Standy, 3G talk time: 10 hours. 10 Hours LTE browsing.

The iSight Camera – The camera app sets white balance, exposure, and has two LEDs on the flash. One is cool and white, the other is warm and amber. We will also see Auto image stabilization coming soon and you have burst mode at 10 seconds which should start to help Apple gain more traction in the camera arena.  Slo-Mo is also a great feature that will interest a lot of users.

Fingerprint Reader – Touch ID instead of using a passcode is another way to better protect your phone, but does present the opportunity for thieves to cut your fingers off! ‘s The Touch ID is 170 microns thin, senses 500 ppi, and scans your sub-epidermal skin layers. So you tap your home button to unlock your phone. You can also use this Touch ID with iTunes – no need to keep entering your password.

The iPhone 5S Spec:

point  A7 processor
point  Available in Silver, Gold and New Space Gray
point  5X times faster than the iPhone 5
point  M7 processor to measure the accelerometer, compass, and gyroscope.
point  250 hours standby
point  It captures HD video at 720p at 120FPS.
point  10 frames per second in burst mode
