If you have updated your iPhone or iPad to Apple's new iOS7, you might have noticed there are more changes than just the home screen icons looking different. Here are tips on some other differences.

1. If you've tried to close apps, you'll notice the interface has changed. Begin as you did before, by double-clicking the home button. Icons still appear on the bottom, but an open page for each icon appears above it. To close an app, put your finger on the page and flick or swipe upward.

2. There have been complaints that the added screen movement in iOS7 is causing some users to become nauseated or motion sick. It also drains your battery faster. To lessen the amount of screen motion, go to Settings, select General, then Accessibility and then Reduce Motion.

3. If you hate getting update alerts every day, there's good news: iOS 7 automatically updates all your apps. However, if you prefer to continue updating apps yourself, disable automatic updating by going to Settings, select iTunes and App Stores and then uncheck the Automatic Downloads area.
