iOS 7 is Apple's seventh generation software for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Code-named "Innsbruck", it was introduced by Apple during the WWDC 2013 keynote on June 10. A radical visual departure from previous generations of iOS, it focuses on clarity by removing all but the most essential interface elements and shifting from buttons to tinted text, deference by getting out of the way of content and apps, and depth by building the entire experience around a real, game-style physics and particle engine that moves, blurs, parallaxes, and layers in virtual 3D. New features include: Control Center, Notification Center, Multitasking, Camera, Photos, AirDrop, Safari, iTunes Radio, Siri, and CarPlay.

iOS 7 represents nothing more nor less than the radical rethinking of mainstream multitouch interface. A complete visual departure from previous versions, it focuses on clarity by removing all but the most essential elements and chrome, deference by getting out of the way of content and apps, and depth by building the entire experience on top of a physics and particle engine that moves, blurs, parallaxes, and layers in virtual 3D. It touches every app, every pixel, and every bit of the system. It's far from perfect, and there are issues — as superficial as icons and as deep as consistency — yet to be overcome, but along with new features like Control Center and AirDrop, and improvements to Notification Center, multitasking, the Camera and Photos apps, Safari, Siri, and more, it's the most exciting update to iOS in years, and to mobile interface since the original iPhone. But it's also facing most competitive market ever. So, given the alternatives, is it enough?
