But with iOS 7, users have the flexibility of piling countless applications in one single place, if required lest even create a sole folder for each application.
Digital voice supporting software Siri
Another hidden feature of iOS 7 is a digital voice supporting software Siri. With this feature, users can search for data on Bing for finding solutions to their queries.

If user’s get harassing calls then they can now give it a stop. Users can block their added numbers they want to restrict. All they need to do is to click the contacts application and scroll to the option “Block this contact”. It is that simple.
With the help of this feature users are capable of deriving information such as notification and reminders of the upcoming day’s tasks, temperature, day view or traffic summary without unlocking the handset.
