An overview of iOS 7's new gesturesApple added new gestures in iOS 7 that make navigating the operating system easier than ever. Here's how to use them.
Gestures can be a great way to quickly access different parts of an operating system. In iOS 7, Apple added even more features that are a simple swipe away. The Spotlight Search function has been relocated from the home screen and can now be enabled from any screen with a simple swipe down. Similar to how a swipe from the top of the screen drags down the notification center, a swipe upward from the bottom will reveal the all-new Command Center. From here, you can quickly change things like Wi-Fi, brightness, and more. Inside the multitasking window which can still be accessed by double tapping the home button, you can do either a one-, two-, or three-finger swipe upwards to close open apps. Swiping from left to right in programs like mail, messages, and Safari will bring you back the previous page. While swiping from right to left in mail and messages will reveal the delete option. These gestures can also be implemented in apps by third-party developers, so expect to see more of them soon. Be sure to check out howto.cnet.com for more tips and tricks. For CNET, I'm Dan Graziano.
