At Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco Monday, the company unveiled its updated operating system for the iPhone and iPad.

One of the new features is iTunes Radio integrated with iTunes. The feature lets you create new music stations, favorite songs and share them with friends.

“Today we’re introducing an amazing way to discover new music and we call it iTunes Radio,” said Eddy Cue, Senior V.P. of Internet Software and Services, “Once you have a station you love, you can just tap the “I” and you can share it with a friend or even create a new station based on this artist or song.”

Another new feature is a more user-friendly camera app that lets you move from different types of cameras and filters with just a swipe.

“Now your camera in iOS7 is four cameras in one. You can just swipe from your video camera to your photo camera to your square cropped camera to your pano camera,” explained Craig Federighi, Senior VP of Software, “When you’re taking stills, you now have access to live photo filters.”

Security is also getting a boost, with a new feature called activation lock – designed to make it near impossible for a thief to access your valuable iPhone data.

The new iOS will be released to the public sometime this fall.
