Apple is gearing up to launch iOS 7, a software update that promises to streamline the look and functionality across the board on the interfaces of their popular devices, as they continue to work to stay ahead of the curve in mobile design.

Apple CEO Tim Cook explained the company’s desire to make the major changes, saying, "We want to make the best product that people use more and love more than anyone else's."

"It’s the most significant iOS update since the original iPhone,” he added.

The iOS 7 software update will be available on iPhone 4 and newer, iPod Touch fifth gen, iPad 2 and newer and the iPad Mini.

First off, the look promises to be sleeker, with the icons taking on a flatter appearance and the keyboard more translucent. The Control Center can be accessed by swiping up from the bottom of the screen, allowing users to manage several controls at once. Apple’s iOS 7 will also include a built in Flashlight app.

As for the app experience, apps will be automatically updated through the Apple App Store. Apps will also be able to be separated based on the frequency of use, which will enable the device to save battery power. The addition of iTunes Radio could also take the place of other streaming radio services such as Pandora and Spotify.

Other additional improvements will be enhanced Photos, Safari, Airdrop and Siri.
