Some of my favorites have been already mentioned... but one thing I'm very excited about is the new abilities of the shared photo streams. Right now, each of my family members has a separate stream they post pictures to that the rest of the family can see on their photo stream. Now, we can create ONE family stream and all post to it!

Swipe to go back because it's difficult to reach the back button if you're using the phone with only 1 hand.

I'm pretty sure swipe to go back has already been introduced in the App Store app and a few other places in the OS.

I'm running iOS7 on my iPhone 5. If you go in settings you can swipe back. And and if your in the App Store looking at an app you can swipe back.

Oh, you mean in iOS 7 in general? Yeah, it's been introduced more or less system-wide (which is I think what Armen was referring to, and what the thread is basically about). I thought with your earlier reply where you mentioned "... has already been introduced ..." you meant that that feature was there in some places before iOS 7.

I love Control Center and AirDrop and automatic app updating, but the thing I love/use the most is probably the swipe gestures in Safari, Messages, Settings, etc. So nice to be able to swipe to go back now ...

Oh no. I was just referring to Apple already introducing swipe to go back in iOS7. Sorry for the confusion.

I agree. Hope Apple allows you to use airdrop between Macs and iPhones.

Swipe to go back. Especially in safari. Such a small feature but very convenient.

I use Today everyday. And Automatically updates are nice from connivence stand point and from a geek stand point. Best feeling was just the other day I looked at my iPhone and saw a new app icon for Youtube.

I agree. I often find myself swiping back in apps that don't support it, just out of habit, and being disappointed when nothing happens. I can't wait until more apps support it.

Having the exact time of each text message. It's a small feature but something I've always wanted on my iPhone.
