Post Your iOS 7 Filtered Photos

iOS 7 Filtered Photo

Source: iFans forum member ChrisB

The surging popularity of Instagram has inspired a number of competing services and platforms to begin offering their own photo filters, including Google+ and Twitter. Apple too introduced photo filters as a native feature of iOS 7, bundled right into the Camera app, for iPhone and iPod touch.

iFans forum member Laze has shared a few photos that he captured with a digital camera and then applied iOS 7 photo filters to afterwards, and we invite other iPhoneographers to share their own shots in the thread as well. We’ll feature some of our favorites in this post.

Post Your iOS 7 Beta 2 Wish Lists

icono-ipswApple seeded the first iOS 7 beta to developers on Monday, following its WWDC keynote, and early adopters have now had close to three days to digest the new software update. And perhaps you think highly of the new update — outside of those god-awful icons — but wish there was a certain feature or two that Apple had included.

So, naturally, we’ll point you to the iOS 7 beta 2 wish list discussion thread within the iFans forums. There, you can leave your thoughts on the current iOS 7 beta and what you would like to see in future revisions throughout the summer. Last year, it took five beta versions of iOS 6 before the final candidate was released, so there is still a lot of leeway ahead.

Operation Android at iFans

android logo white outlineWhile the foundation of iFans is rooted in the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, with a particularly strong emphasis on jailbreaking discussions, our forum community has certainly changed over the years. A number of our longtime members, in addition to new users, are showing increasing interest in the Android platform.

With the emergence of impactful Android devices, such as the Galaxy S4, Nexus 4 and HTC One, the competition surrounding the iPhone is stronger than ever. And the goal of Operation Android at iFans is to embrace that competition, by increasing our overall dedication towards Android within the blog and discussion forums.

Operation Android will be kickstarted in just hours from now, as we provide a live stream of the Google I/O keynote beginning at 9:00 AM Pacific. Moreover, we will be dedicating our resources towards the emergence of Cydia Substrate for Android and the exciting opportunities that exist within that scene. See our expanded Android forum category.

On a related note, the HTC One, HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S4 are all now available as device options under personal details for your profile. When enabled, the device you select shows up underneath your username and post count. If you have a specific Android device that you would like included in the list, please be sure to recommend it in the comments section.

Poll: When Does the iPhone 5S Come Out in 2013?


Within the iFans forums, we have posted a poll that asks when you think Apple will announce the next iPhone. There has been speculation that the Cupertino-based corporation could unveil the latest iPhone as soon as WWDC 2013, which should take place next June, but there has also been contrasting reports that claim Apple is behind schedule on the so-called “iPhone 5S” because of difficulties at integrating a new fingerprint scanner.
