What’s useful in iOS 7 (and not one word about aesthetics)

I’ve read several reviews of iOS 7 now, and most of them — even the good ones — went on and on about the colours, the icons, the parallax, the flatness of it all, blah blah blah, yada yada yada, zzzz.

This is not a “review.” This is a list about what iOS 7 does, mostly good, plus a few disappointments. What’s handy? What’s not? That’s it. It’s fairly complete now, but I will inevitably add several items to it.

Bigger deals

Just for 5S

Smaller grin-inducers

Annoyances and disappointments (mostly minor)

Just one bitter gripe
