The built-in compass feature in iOS isn't anything new, but in iOS 7 it does have a handy new feature: a digital level. The level is great for doing exactly what its name implies, and it'll help you take more accurate compass readings, too.

Everyone knows what FaceTime is for: face to face communication. But what happens when you put an iPhone behind the eyepiece of an astronomical telescope and make a FaceTime call? Delightful, remote viewing of the moon and planets.
It's great to be able to invoke Siri from your iPhone's lock screen, but it sure isn't very secure. Leaving that feature on means that anyone who grabs your device can use it, too.

Apple's retail stores stopped answering their phones over the weekend, which meant there wasn't any way to find out if they had the iPhone model in stock you wanted without going to the store and waiting in line.

In iOS 6, swiping to the right brought up a 'Delete' button, whereas now in iOS 7 that to-the-right swipe causes a different type of navigation. Never fear: Apple hasn't left you in the dark, they've just changed directions on you. Try swiping to the left in mail and you'll get instant payoff!
One of the most user-friendly new features in iOS 7 is swipe navigation, and it's available in a whole bunch of places. So if you think you don't like Safari's redesign, for example, this may make you change your mind. In this article, we'll talk about where and how you can use it.
