44. Private eye Prior to iOS 7, VPN connections were either on or off, meaning any app that used one was granted access. Now, Apple is going to grant access on an app-by-app basis, giving businesses and their employees a bit more peace of mind.
28. Key ring Safari has always been able to remember our user names and passwords after the first time we enter them, but the upcoming iCloud Keychain will take it to a whole new level. Now, the passwords, credit card numbers and personal contact information we store on our Macs will be automatically synced with our iOS 7 devices, saving us all that time we used to spend resetting them. We just have to wait a little longer to use it.
3. Total control We all know that swiping down from the top of the screen brings up the Notification Center, but Apple has added a set of options to the bottom of the screen, too. Just swipe up and you'll reveal the Control Center, a quick-access panel with a bevy of shortcuts to Bluetooth, WiFi and Airplay settings, to name but a few.
14. Look and listen Apple won't let our apps access our photo library or contacts without our permission, but in iOS 7, it's taken security one step further. Now, when an app needs to use your iPhone's microphone for the first time, a dialogue box will ask for your permission.
69. All or nothing Wait, have we really been waiting six years for this? Tap edit in iOS 7 Mail and you'll finally see the option we've wanted since we heard the first new mail ding on our first iPhones: Mark all.
16. Ad it up As long as we're using connected devices, we're never going to completely free ourselves of prying eyes looking to sell us things we don't want, but Apple at least allows us to lesson their visibility in iOS 7. Over in the Privacy settings, you'll find a toggle to limit as tracking, and in Safari, there's a do not track button. We'll wait while you go turn them on.
