As expected, Apple has just released iOS 7 to the public, making the download available to users of recent iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch models. Users can obtain the update either by connecting their devices to iTunes and clicking the “Check for Update” button or checking for over-the-air updates on their devices via Settings -> General -> Software Update. It may, however, take a few minutes for the update to propagate to all users.

iOS 7 has hundreds of great new features, including Control Centre, Notification Centre, improved Multitasking, AirDrop, enhanced Photos, Safari, Siri and introduces iTunes Radi, a free Internet radio service based on the music you listen to on iTunes*.

iOS 7 is available as a free software update for iPhone 4 and later, iPad 2 and later, iPad mini and iPod touch (fifth generation). Some features may not be available on all products.

*iTunes Radio is not available to users with a South African iTunes account. If you would like to get an overseas iTunes Account then follow this link and select your desired country and value and change the shipping to “Create iTunes Account for me.”
