Apple Loses Some of its Magic Touch with iOS 7

Since iOS 7’s launch on Sept. 18,2013 , it has quickly become Apple’s most troubled mobile operating system update. Increasing is concern that  the technology giant has significantly lost some of its magic touch since co-founder Steve Jobs passed away two years ago.
