As one of the many new features in iOS 7, iTunes Radio is Apple’s long-awaited music streaming service. iTunes Radio is a direct competitor to similar streaming services like Spotify, Rdio, Pandora, and Google Play Music All Access. At the heart of the service are playlists or “stations” which are based on the music that already exists in your personal library, generated from iTunes’ entire catalogue. Or as the iTunes Radio site puts it, “So the more you use iTunes Radio and iTunes, the more iTunes Radio knows what you like to listen to — and the more it can play music you’ll love.”
The service is free and supported by ads, although you can subscribe to iTunes Match to get rid of them. iTunes Radio is available on all Apple devices and as part of iTunes on Windows-based devices.

Leaked photos have surfaced online which claim to show the final design of the iPhone 5.
The photos were posted to it168.com and reposted by Nowhereelse.fr. The site notes that there is a tiny white border around the glass separating it from the metal frame. In previously leaked photos there was a visible gap between the glass and the frame leading the site to conclude that the border may be there to minimize damage to the screen in case of impact.

The phone is drawn as accurately as possible, based on leaked dimensions. Some features such as the new dock connector and larger screen size are almost definitely likely to appear in the new iPhone 5. Other features are included only for concept purposes, such as ‘Fingerprint Scan to Unlock’.
Everything has been drawn and animated from scratch; from the icons, to the user interfaces and of course the hardware itself. I used a combination of Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, After Effects and Apple’s Final Cut Pro X.
Apple is expected to officially announce the iPhone 5 tomorrow.
