Following the public release of iOS 7, Apple has added a new "Designed for iOS 7" section to its App Store. The section highlights apps that have been updated or released with an iOS 7-style design, including notable offerings like Evernote, OmniFocus 2, and Perfect Weather, a new app released yesterday.

Apps in the section can be organized by name and release date, and there's also a "Featured" tab that highlights prominent apps like Zillow and NBC. Currently, there are approximately 45 apps in the list, and more will presumably be added as updates from developers go live. We have also created a roundup featuring details on a multitude of iOS 7 app updates.

Apple's list of apps that support iOS 7 can be accessed on the front page of the App Store on the iPad or the iPhone and through the iTunes App Store. Apple is also highlighting a number of newly released iOS 7 games, including Angry Birds Star Wars II and Infinity Blade III, which has been optimized for both iOS 7 and the upcoming iPhone 5s.

Though iOS 7 was released this morning, Apple's servers appear to be overwhelmed, preventing some users from obtaining the update. iOS 7 can be downloaded via iTunes or over-the-air, as detailed in our iOS 7 post.

Too bad Apple doesn't have more of their own apps on that list. They want all the other developers to have theirs ready for iOS 7 and Apple can't even get their own apps ready.

The thick of it
I've had a slew of app updates, beginning two days ago. Just got iOS7 without a problem. I think I'm going to like it. I had to change my old wallpaper design; it no longer lined up. I've also discovered that the new folder icons are partially transparent and look terrible with certain backgrounds.

My various screens look really odd now, a mishmash of Apple's new icons and older app icons. I'm sure there will be lots of tweaks coming to straighten things out.

Had no trouble downloading and installing ios7; however, I have not been able to activate it for the last hour either through the phone itself or thru itunes. Local AT&T store said they're having the same issues.

You'd think after all this time and knowing that 100 million people are going to activate ASAP, that Apple and AT&T would have their act together. I have a lovely brick as of now.

Does anyone know when typically the activation rush issue gets resolved?

Do you think that it could because they were trying to iron out all the bugs in iOS7!? I think having a mostly ironed out operating system which will be shipped to the masses is a lot more important than updating a couple of their apps.

Fragmentation?

Can this be classified as a form of fragmentation? Is this type inevitable as an OS matures?
