People might think iOS 7 looks like a child’s choice, but apparently, it’s not. Millions of people around the globe love the simplicity and ease of usage behind iOS 7 and it’s the biggest change Apple made it to its software section. This year, the situation is pretty different.

Since health is the main focus point of iOS 8, Apple is trying everything to pull iOS 8 to success.
