Remember back when iOS 4 got a unified Mail inbox all those years ago? Before that, we poor users had to trudge through our devices—uphill both ways!—to read emails sent to all of our accounts. Well, hold on to your pants, because with iOS 7, you can now enable unified sent, drafts, and trash mailboxes to see those messages all in one place, too, and we're gonna tell you how.
Sometimes it's the simple things that make operating system updates so nice, like iOS 7's new way of performing system-wide searches.

The iPhone 5s includes Touch ID so you can use your fingerprint as your passcode, and it lets you store prints for up to five different fingers. Unfortunately, each is identified with non-descriptive terms like "Finger 1," and "Finger 2." That may not be overly helpful in keeping track of which fingers you' lined to Touch ID, but Apple did include a surprisingly simple way to sort that out.
If you haven't checked out the new iOS 7 photo filters yet, you really should. They're a fast and easy way to apply attractive filters to your images without having to use any third-party apps. Here's the neat thing, though—you can remove them from the pictures you take (or switch them around) even after you've applied them, and we're gonna tell you how.
Mobile Safari in iOS 7 wants to do its best to help you work more efficiently, so it automatically preloads the top hit from your Web searches. That's great, unless you don't want Safari to auto-load top hits. You can disable that feature, and it's easy to do. Read on to learn how.
In iOS 7, from time to time, a pale bue dot will appear in front of the app's name. What is that exactly? The Mac Observer's John Martellaro explains all.
