New undisclosed features found in iOS 7, including new gestures like corner swipe

iOS developer finds hidden features in iOS 7 including new gesture controls and the ability to hide apps

Apple showed off many new visual improvements along with some functionality in iOS 7 last week at the WWDC conference, but they apparently did not play their whole hand. iOS developer Hamza Sood discovered several secret settings menus in the beta edition of iOS 7.

The secret menus control many additional settings that are not currently enabled in the beta build of iOS 7, but most likely will be enabled in future builds. The most interesting discoveries include settings for gestures like: corner swipe, edge swipe, as well as a press and hold gesture.



There are also options for parallax, dock, zoom animations and new folders. Icon animations, adaptive display tinting, nested folders, and a new hide app feature all seem to be something Apple does not want anyone playing around with at the moment. Many of these features are again just rehashes of features that are either present on Android, or have been on Android in the past. We will just have to wait until iOS 7 goes live to see what gets implemented.
