The first being the new way to close apps. Apple has made it a lot easier to close running apps with iOS 7. While I wish they would still include a "Close All" button to quickly close all running apps; this new way to close apps is sure a lot faster. I also like that you have a screen shot of what apps are currently open in the background.
As a Technology Integration Specialist, I like the idea that it is suggested to users to put a lock code on their iPads. Every time I train teachers, I suggest that they include a pass lock on their iPad for security. Some follow my suggestion while others do not. Teachers should always have a pass lock on their iPads to secure private information as well as secure their emails.
Auto updating of Apps. This setting is pure genius! I always hated to see how many updates I had; but at the same time I never took time to update. Having the apps auto update will be great for students who are in a 1:1 setting plus teaching staff.
I am still trying to get use to the Search feature. I honestly wish they would have left it as it was with incorporating it into the swipe down feature. It's not hard; but it will take time to get use to. It would be ideal if Apple would include both ways.
I also like the look to the new iOS. It looks clean and I must say that it reminds me of my Android phone :) I like the look of the new icons with the exception of the calendar app. I can't ever seem to find it! I miss having the red stripe across the top as it was easy to spot. There are so many new features with this update that I won't mention in this blog but really enjoy. I also like that Apple has allowed quick access to turning off/on bluetooth and wifi.
