In Pictures: New and improved in iOS 7 and Xcode 5

From a more efficient UI and 64-bit support to better layout and debugging tools, iOS 7 and Xcode 5 point to a new generation of mobile apps

Behind the new look Apple's iOS 7 is not only the world's first 64-bit mobile operating system, but it also sports a completely new look. Gone is much of the chrome and gloss that characterized the UI in iOS 6, replaced by brighter, cleaner, and simpler UI elements that give developers more screen real estate to work with.

The yang to iOS 7's yin, Xcode 5 sports major improvements under the hood, ranging from faster compiling and support for 64-bit apps to a host of new features that smooth development and ease debugging. Together, iOS 7 and Xcode 5 allow developers to build better mobile apps that are both faster and have fewer bugs.

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

LIFEBOOK UH574

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

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
