iOS 7 Tips and Tricks
-If you don't want the new parallax/home screen animations, you can turn them off in Settings>General>Accessibility>Reduce Motion.
-To force close apps, double click Home button and flick app previews up off the screen.
-In the Photos app, you can select entire events at once under Photos>Moments. Tap select in the top corner, then Select again next to the event you'd like to edit/delete. All photos in the event will be selected.
-In the Mail app inbox, you can swipe right to left to reveal options for editing/deleting mails.
-In Safari's open tab view, you can close a tab by swiping it right to left instead of tapping the little X.
-On the lock screen you can swipe to unlock anywhere, not just where it says "Slide to Unlock."
-If you hate having to update apps, turn on Automatic App Updates to have them download automatically in the background. (Settings>iTunes & App Store>Automatic Updates)
-Subscribers to your shared photo streams can now add photos to the stream if you allow it. (Go to a Shared Stream and tap on People to find the setting.)
-You can save favorite bookmarks as icons in Safari's new tab page for quick access.
-You can now redeem iTunes gift cards using the camera to scan them instead of typing in the code.
-You can rearrange your Music app nav bar to your liking (think this was introduced a ways back though).
-To find the daily appointment view in Calendar, tap the magnifying glass icon.
-Search your iPhone, Wikipedia, or the Web from any Home screenjust pull down from the middle of the screen to reveal Spotlight Search.
-Go Back in Style: iOS 7 has a new gesture for going back a page in Safari, or a layer view in apps like Settings. To "swipe back," swipe your screen from left to right, beginning at the left edge. If the app supports the gesture (not all 3rd party appsTapatalk for instancehave been updated yet) you'll go back to the previous page. One of the best and most natural feeling additions in iOS 7, I think.
-Need a level for a home improvement project? Open your Compass app, and swipe right to left to reveal the new iOS 7 level.
-You can set the volume of the spoken navigation directions independently of system volumeuseful if you find them usually too soft or too loud. See Settings>Maps.
