There are so many new features tucked away within iOS 7 that you may still find new ones for weeks to come. Here are some of my favorites that you may or may not have found yet. Apple has added in the ability for your iDevice to auto-update your apps. You’ll no longer need to manually update them from the App Store – heading into the App Store settings menu will give you the option to automatically let your device keep all of your apps up to date. It’s not very battery- or data-friendly, but the option is there if you want it. Speaking of updated apps, whenever an app gets updated – either manually or automatically – a little blue dot appears next to the app’s name on your home screen to show you there’s been a change. It’s a subtle reminder, and very effective. Another subtle addition can be found in the Messages app. By swiping message bubbles to the left, you’ll see the exact time stamp every message was sent and received.
