Despite the changes that were unveiled to iOS today, I still expected quite a bit more based on published patent applications and statements made earlier by executives. I am left wondering how much new functionality was actually presented today--all the more so, because iOS7 represents the culmination of years of work and is clearly the main development branch. We finally have a good sense of the true state of Apple’s iOS development progress, although some functionality may still be hidden for unreleased devices.

I must say the new font makes it easier to distinguish characters for reading text on a small screen. I have yet to review the beta of iOS7, so I may uncover more unannounced goodies.

The upcoming iPhone and iPad could see significant changes as well as unlocked functionality from iOS7. There were rumors that the two devices would be announced or launch on the anniversary of the original iPhone in an event entitles, “Original Passion. New Ideas.” There are some hints of 3D functionality with iOS7 UI motion tracking and this could be expanded further with the faster, more battery-efficient processors in newer hardware.

Otherwise, there’s 2014, which Tim Cook has promised to be full of innovation. I really like the company’s vision as revealed from patent applications, but I am getting real tired of waiting for it to come to fruition. For now, I will experiment with iOS7.
