In recent years, the iOS mobile operating system has not changed much, by most accounts (with the exception of the map fiasco).

Now, there are rumblings of features that the new iOS 7 might offer including an updated Notification Center, Game Center, and multitasking.

Oh, and of course, social media has a role that is front and center.

Apple has a knack at holding back changes to their iOS. In many circumstances, the jailbreak community has apparently led the way on new features for iOS improvements. Some of these “hacker-driven” improvements include the notification center, shortcut settings, and synching.

For the iOS 7, watch for gesture-driven features including features such as multitask bar gestures for app switching (no more button double-pushing).

So, having barely adapted to iOS 6, are you looking forward to iOS 7?
