    Not sure whether to upgrade to Apple's latest operating system? Here are 10 ways iOS 7--and some of its new and updated apps -- can help you while traveling.

    Included with iOS7 upgrade

    Find My iPhone: The enhanced Find My iPhone allows users to remotely secure lost or stolen devices, rendering them virtually useless to would-be thieves (unless they also have the associated Apple ID and password). This means it has little-to-no market value, which may help reduce theft.

    Camera: The new camera app lets you fire away consecutive shots--to the tune of ten per second--which could help avoid missing that once-in-a-lifetime shot. Caveat: make sure to stand relatively still, because the device will not refocus if you move around too much.

    Photo Album: Now the photo album beautifully streamlines all your images, making them easy to pull up and share, long after your trip is done. It automatically sorts photos into mini collections sorted by location and date. Or you can scale up and sort by year.

    AirDrop: You know how, after a group trip or outing, there's always that one person that takes forever to upload photos to Facebook? AirDrop lets iOS users transfer files to other nearby iOS devices via WiFi and Bluetooth. It's quick, secure, and eliminates that wait time.

    Maps: Avoid looking like a tourist while staring at your phone as you try to make your way around an unfamiliar town. The improved native maps app (finally!) offers spoken navigation, so throw on some earbuds and you'll look like a local just meandering around your home turf.
