At today’s iPhone event, Apple announced that iOS 7 — the biggest change to iOS since the iPhone — will be released publicly on September 18th for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Apple gave us a preview of iOS 7 at the Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) 2013 Keynote on June 10th, and also seeded a beta version of the OS to registered developers.

iOS 7 has over 200 new features, but isn’t just a user-facing redesign of the entire operating system. It has a lot of under-the-hood changes as well. Here are the main features:

Note that not all these features would be available on older devices, here’s a list of which features your old device won’t get.

Apart from these features, iOS 7 has over 1500 new APIs for developers including UIDynamics, iBeacons, Sprite Kit, support for third-party game controllers and a lot more.

You can know more about iOS 7 on our iOS 7 category page.
