In Pictures: The 7 best new features in iOS 7

Behind the radical new look and retooled user experience are some easily overlooked capabilities you'll enjoy

The key changes lurking under the all-new surface Once you switch to iOS 7 from a previous version, you're in for a shock: It looks really, really different, and some apps -- Photos, especially -- work very differently than before. It took me about a month to make the mental adjustment to iOS 7, but now iOS 6 feels passé. Once you get past the user-interface adjustment, you should start seeing some very useful new capabilities.

There are a couple dozen new features worth your while, including automatic app updates, shared browser links in Safari, and more detailed feedback from Siri (which can now be male or female). Here, I've picked the most compelling ones.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
