New iOS 7 is out; Apple is celebrating first big success after Steve Jobs. If I have given authority to consider iPhone timeline, I would say, Apple has two generation, ‘with Steve Jobs and without Steve Jobs’. In the lateral era we got iOS7, for now, it’s dazzling in every next iPhone, iPad and iTouch. While every one is busy downloading, installing flashing pictures, adding media and playing game, perhaps there are very few who have given attention to phone itself.

If something is not well with a human body, how long it can go with work? Perhaps, you know the answer.
