Ben Bajarin: Apple’s new iOS 7 will cause consumers to discover their iPhones all over again

“I want to share my experience with the iPhone 5s. The whole package, from the new hardware features to the iOS 7, has provided me with an experience I did not expect,” Ben Bajarin writes for Tech.pinions.

“As I started using the 5s I was brought back to that moment when I first started using an iPhone. It is the iPhone re-discovered,” Bajarin writes. “It started with iOS 7. I predict iOS 7 is going to do something very interesting. It is going to cause consumers to discover their iPhones all over again… I like iOS 7 better than any previous smartphone OS I’ve used. In fact, in my honest opinion, all other mobile operating systems now look dated to me.”

Bajarin writes, “The fingerprint sensor registers so quickly that the device unlocks nearly as fast as I can push the button to wake it up. Watch this video demo to see just how quick and easy it is to use TouchID. I created a video to show this point. (This is real time I did not speed it up)”

  1. Something I have yet to read about on the new phone is the potential of thieves looking elsewhere to steal phones, if they cant get it to work without the right fingerprint, then its pretty much useless to steal data as well as trying to fence the item.

  2. I agree there are many things to like about iOS7. But there is one negative that hit me right off the bat, and it keeps right on a hittin. In many places the font is hard to read. It’s thin and I’m OK with that, except thin AND light makes it more difficult than before. Reminds me of secondary roads in Maps, where they are light grey on a white background; can’t see in bright light. Maybe I’ll get used to it, or maybe my eyesight will improve.
