As an apple fan through and through, iOS7 arrived just as I was starting to get antsy with my current operating system. I decided to hold off on getting the new iPhone until my upgrade becomes available, but even on my 4S, I can tell that iOS7 is something special.

More than ever before, the iPhone is an extension of my body. Though in the past, it has been a major part of my personal life, (texting friends, looking up directions, and waking me up in the morning for a workout), in many ways, it has transformed my smartphone into the ideal tool for a professional environment, as well.

As Blackberry collapses, the iPhone is a testament to the success of simplicity. As Apple’s chief designer states, “true simplicity is derived from so much more than just the absence of clutter, it’s about bringing order to complexity ”.

So now, we can let that order dictate how we manage our professional lives.

  • With Airdrop, or other sharing platforms, our smart phones, tablets, and mobile devices let us share files instantly with any contact nearby.
  • We can multitask efficiently, dragging and opening applications with ease.
  • And, we can customize our settings in a way that makes photos, videos, and other content accessible (and organized) like never before.

Working in restrictive office space is becoming less of the rule and more of the exception. We aren’t tied to specific locations anymore. Now, we are flexible and perpetually armed with information.

The continual evolution of Apple’s updates seems to be in sync with the rise in teleworking and coworking.

UberOffices, a Virginia-based coworking hub, has seen an uptick in clientele simply because people are no longer tied to their desktop computers. Today, with an iPad that comfortably fits in your back pocket, you can get work done from the comfort of the couch, communal desk space, or a corner office with a view.

iOS7 has revealed significant changes to the user interface. It’s exciting.

How will it change how you do work?
