Tim Cook calls iOS 7 the biggest change to iOS since the introduction of the iPhone, and it is indeed beautiful. The goal: simplify the look and feel of the platform while adding lots of functionality. Some of the highlights include a new way to multitask and a Control Center for quickly changing settings. You’ll also find an all-new Safari and an enhanced Siri with your choice of voices. The App Store also updates your apps automatically–finally. Here are the top 10 highlights of iOS 7.
