The announcement was made during the live keynote at the company’s headquarters in Cupertino, where the iPhone 5S and 5C were presented.

The new version of the operating system is the greatest improvement in terms of design since the iPhone debuted in 2007.

Among the new features introduced is the ability to perform several tasks at the same time and the disappearance of the “lock screen” given that a fingerprint scanner has been implemented into the Home button.

The iOS 7 beta 6 was released in August, and the iOS 7 GM was available in early September.
