The iOS 7 release date is finally upon us as Apple device users will be able to upgrade to the new software sometime tomorrow.

The company has created a page on its site that informs visitors on just about everything related to iOS 7 including what devices it is compatible with and what new features will be available on it.
This page will also most likely list the time that iOS 7 will begin rolling out for Apple devices tomorrow. It could start as early as 8 a.m. or as late as 8 p.m. Either way, when people start upgrading, Apple's servers will be bombarded with millions of downloads from iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch users.
The software will be compatible with the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad 2, iPad mini, iPad 3, iPad 4, and the iPod Touch 5th-Generation.
Apple announced iOS 7 at WWDC earlier this year.
It will come with many new features along with a completely redesigned layout with fresh fonts and new templates. The newly designed interface will come with flat icons and a 3D effect that will make the wallpaper appear to be some distance behind the icons.
The notification menu will also be updated as users will access it by pulling it down. It can track what activity you are doing such as playing music and provides users with easy access to their settings and the new features called AirPlay and AirDrop.
AirDrop allows Mac users to share content such as pictures and videos with a multiple amount of people using Apple devices in the same vicinity. It is similar to the NFC, except the devices don't need to make physical contact and must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
