7 new features in Apple’s new iOS 7.1

“Apple’s recently introduced iOS 7.1update provides a few design changes and a couple of extra features. Here’s what you need to know to access some of these,” Jonny Evans writes for Computerworld.

“Previously you could choose to take an HDR shot or not, but it is now set as default,” Evan writes. “Some people didn’t like the new parallax effect in iOS 7, claiming it made them queasy. Apple listens to its customers and has made it possible to completely switch these off in the new OS.”

“The new OS lets you set your device up to more clearly represent the difference between buttons and text labels. You need to enable the feature,” Evan writes. “Another new feature is support for HFP Prompts.”

  1. Not sure about the HDR claim. On my iPhone 5 there is still a label at the top that I can toggle on or off. Previously it was OFF and after the upgrade it was still OFF.
