1. Tech writer Alexis Madrigal joins us as our new contributor for all things digital to review Apple’s software release of iOS 7:

Of course, it’s not the first time that Apple has updated its phone software. IOS 7 is, logically, the seventh version of the software. But previous revisions to Apple’s mobile operating system nibbled around the edges of a design that they first unveiled in 2007 along with the original iPhone. IOS 7, by contrast, is a complete, post-Steve Jobs overhaul, spearheaded by the company’s head of design, Jonny Ive.To be clear: if you’re an iPhone user, everything — your email, your calendar, your texts, your phone dialer, your photos, your notes — will look and work differently.In reinventing its key software, the real big change — the visionary change — is that the idea of the operating system is radically new.
