How to Let Others Share Photos on Your Photo Stream with iOS 7

Before iOS 7 users could only share photos with friends and family on their photo stream, but now you can give anyone you trust access to add their own photos to your albums. First you need to make sure the person you want to share photos with is listed in your Contacts and that they are set up to share photos. They can do this by navigating to Settings > Photos & Camera and turning on the Photo Sharing option. They will also need to have iCloud enabled to receive your invite to share photos on your stream.

Then tap the blue + at the top of the screen and enter the name of your new stream. Once your stream has a name, tap Next and add the names of the people you want to share images and video with. Finally tap Create and the stream will be sent to the friends and family who you have added.

Now that Cydia and MobileSubstrate have been updated for iOS 7, developers are working hard to bring their tweaks up to speed. In the meantime, there's one detail that has been overlooked. The Cydia icon still has an iOS 6 design, which doesn't conform to other icons on the iOS 7 home screen.

Jailbreak tweaks for iOS 7 and A7 devices are about to hit full swing now that evasion 7 is available and mobile substrate has been updated. The iOS 7 Control Center is one feature that easily benefits from customization. Developer Ryan Petrich has released a beta tweak called FlipControlCenter that allows users to add several toggles to the Control Center.

Jailbreakers will recognize this quick access to Settings toggles as a feature previously found in the tweak SBSettings. Even though FlipControlCenter is still in beta development, it integrates perfectly into the look and feel of iOS 7. Several pages of toggles can be accessed directly from Control Center, and certain toggles can even be made inactive from the lock screen for security.
