How iOS 7 compares to previous versions [Chart]

iOS 7, at least as much as we saw of it at WWDC 2013, compared at a glance with previous major releases. We began including version charts in our reviews last year, including our monster iOS 6 review, and we'll be doing more with this come the fall. For now, however, I'll just leave it here so you can check it out, and weigh in where Apple's focus seems to be this year.

  • Can you make another chart showing the beta builds, like last year? :)
  • You mean the release dates of the beta builds?
  • Yeah, please. I tried to find the other one you had made last year but couldn't.
  • iOS 6 was by far the worst in terms of improvements, iOS 5 was probably my favorite new OS although getting the App Store was also pretty awesome.
  • Airdrop is the additional feature of iOS 7
  • Still missing the most important piece being inter app communication.
  • So what are the new software features that we are hoping for when iOS 7 releases?
