With over 1,100 votes from iLounge readers, our latest poll – “What new feature in iOS 7 are you most excited about?” – has now ended. With more information coming out on iOS 7 with every new beta, we asked readers to let us know which of the new features in iOS 7 they were most excited about.

A majority of respondents—thirty-five percent—stated that it’s the new design that they’re most excited about, with the new Control Center coming in second at twenty-eight percent. iOS in the Car support was a distant third with only seven percent of readers choosing that as the feature they’re most looking forward to, edging out the remaining listed iOS 7 features—iTunes Radio, automatic App updates, new camera and photo features, AirDrop, Notification Center, and Activation Lock.

With the launch of the next-generation iPhone imminent and rumours that it will include a built-in fingerprint sensor, we’re curious to know whether this is something that you—our readers—will actually find useful. Is this something that you would only use for unlocking the device, or would you also trust it for secure transactions? Or does a fingerprint sensor just seem like a gimmick to you—something that you don’t really need on your iPhone? Our latest poll “If Apple includes a fingerprint scanner in the next iPhone, will you use it?” lets you have your say.
