, which is said to have
received design direction from Jony Ive
, has been
met with a lot of criticism
since sits release nearly a year ago. IOS 7 marked the biggest overhaul of iOS since its introduction in 2007 and did away with a lot of the

also indicates that Maps will be updated to include integrated public transit directions, iTunes Radio will get its own separate app (instead of being integrated into the Music app), and there will be support include for
IOS 8 will also likely continue Apple’s efforts to prod developers to optimize for 64-bit processors — Apple first introduced 64-bit into the mix via the
and the upcoming A8 will continue those efforts.
