So I watched the wwdc 2013 conference and what I gathered(for ios 7) from it was flat designs and thin fonts BUT then when i watched the session videos, I was quite impressed with some of the features. The items i found to stand out was:

  • Advanced Text Layouts and effects with textkit
  • Core Image Effects and techniques – this is the blur effects
  • Core data performance
  • custom transitions
  • Sprite kit!

I think i’m more excited with sprite kit as there is some awesome features offered with xcode 5, including an inbuilt physics engine and image atlas’ing.
