iOS 7-iPhone 5s-iPhone 5c--What is what?

ios7Apple has made a big announcement last week and a lot of new things are in it..Dr. Z will try to break this down.

First of all..lts break things down a bit…

We have the hardware–which is the iPad and the iPhone.

Then we have the operating system which controls everything on the iPad and the iPhone–its called iOS 7.

Then we have apps which run different things on the iPad and the iPhone.

The hardware cannot run without the operating system.

The apps won’t work without the operating system.

We need 3 things to make everything work on the iPad and iPhone–hardware, operating system and apps.

Apple announced two new models of the iPhone-iPhone 5S and iPhone 5c which is the hardware. Apple did not announce any new models of the iPad

Apple also announced a new version of the operating system called iOS 7. It runs on the iPad and the iPhone–it makes everything look a bit different and prettier. Some functions have changed.

Because iOS 7 looks a bit different, some apps have changed to make it look like iOS 7.

When you upgrade to iOS 7, be sure to back up everything on the iCloud before you back up because sometimes some things can go wrong.

The upgrade to iOS 7 takes about 90 minutes to 2 hours.

iOS 7 works on older versions of the iPhone and iPad. Some of the nice things in iOS 7 may not work on the older versions, but overall it will run just fine.

Dr. Z likes iOS 7–it’s a cool operating system and much cleaner and easier to read.
