AppleCare Support Employees Begin Training on iOS 7
AppleCare employees have begun training on support issues related to iOS 7, according to 9to5Mac. The site claims the training must be completed by the second week in September, when Apple is expected to unveil the final version of iOS 7 for launch in the middle of the following week.
Because of significant changes to the user interface in iOS 7, Apple is reportedly increasing the hours of part-time AppleCare support staff and requiring Mac and OS X AppleCare technicians to cross train in iOS 7 in order to be ready for heavy anticipated call volume.
The iOS 7 training focuses on some of the more critical features of iOS. Apple seems to want to push the Find my iPhone Activation Lock feature. This option requires the customer’s iCloud username and password for an iOS Device to be inputted to active a found iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
Other features that AppleCare will heavily push and become knowledgable about include the new iCloud Photo Sharing options, the redesigned Camera app, the more feature-rich Safari browser, Control Center, and AirDrop file-sharing.
Apple is putting special emphasis on the design differences between iOS 6 and 7. Support employees are being shown how, though the design looks significantly different in iOS 7, actual functionality has not changed in most apps.
The final version of iOS 7 is expected to be unveiled on September 10 at the media event for the iPhone 5S and 5C introductions. Apple typically releases the new version of iOS the following week, just ahead of the launch of the new iPhone model.
Apple says iOS 16.4 is coming in the spring, which began this week. In his Sunday newsletter, Bloomberg's Mark Gurman said the update should be released "in the next three weeks or so," meaning a public release is likely in late March or early April.

Or you can spend some time with it after release and maybe pick up a few hints from here at MacRumors....
Well, multitasking is much better than in iOS 6. Also you have access to all your settings such as Wifi, Bluetooth, brightness, by sliding from the bottom. The interface is far more minimalistic and Safari is a welcome change. Just about everything has been improved, and IMHO it's still just as easy to pick up as previous iOS iterations.
I don't really think it's largely pointless, and I don't think it'll alienate users. Finally, iPhones will have really great software to accompany great hardware. It seems most people's gripes are with the icons, not with functionality.
Functionality hasn't changed but LOTS of new features have been added which makes the user experience much different.
What is wrong with you people?
I like 50% of the people on this board.
I'm a half "full" kind of guy.
