The new design is very similar to some of the leaks and rumors that have been floating around, with sharper, flatter icons, slimmer fonts, and even a new slide to unlock feature. A new control panel slides up from the bottom and all of the stocks apps have been redesigned from the ground up. Additionally Folders can now support hundreds of apps, and are no longer limited to the 12-16 app limits of the past.

 

Multitasking has been updated with support now for all apps, not just the limited services or stock apps that earlier versions of iOS were constrained to. The company that the new features let apps update in the background with no adverse affect to battery life, and it has smart features to update certain apps during times of the day or when you have stronger wireless coverage.
