For Application Developers:
There are two tips given by Apple to its application developers on its launch of the new OS. There are a lot of work the Apple`s application developers have to do. Not only they got to have a check on the UI of the application but also many other parameters. So the developers have to get accustomed to the new iOS 7. There are a lot of speculations that the developers are already happy with the iOS 6 and are comfortable.
But the question is that are these developers are confident and welcome the changes made to the OS. It seems that with the launch of new OS Apple is surely going to launch new products which are compatible with the iOS 7.
