Not on the iPhone, it hasn't. That's only been on the iPads. It is one of those inconsistencies between the iPad and the iPhone versions of iOS where something is available on one, but not the other, despite being from the same generation .

Serenity, in your article you neglected to mention one critical point about AirDrop — Apple foolishly is excluding it from some iOS devices that aren't that old at all, such as the retinaiPad3: http://tinyurl.com/lk2ytqt Some say that this is due to the newest iOS devices having special WiFi hardware,
It's not speculation. It's true. When Apple added it to MacOS, many recent models could not use it either. It's a peer-to-peer mode that must be supported by the wifi card.

Have you checked your configuration for "Check Spelling" and "Auto-Correction" under the General/Keyboard settings pane?

There is also no evidence that Apple has not done that or whether it will add that feature later on (this is a beta after all) yet it did not stop you from calling the omission "foolish". If you don't know the reasons, it is best not to call names.
From the descriptions, it seems Air Drop will rely on peer to peer networking, which makes sense especially outdoors, outside a WiFi network, if you don't want to eat up your data plan. It is also possible it is relying on some new Bluetooth features to locate phones within range before establishing a peer to peer network. (I am told Samsung is relying on NFC to recognize the other devices in its bump to share feature.) Peer to peer networking has been an optional feature for WiFi devices for a long time, but it has been quite difficult to implement reliably and some of what is needed cannot be implemented at OS level. It needs to be done inside WiFi hardware. Some devices may indeed be out of luck in getting this to work. As a 4S owner, I hope not, but we'll see.

2. Can we DISABLE auto updates? I have not updated iBooks and iOS to the newest versions due to reported bugs, and I prefer to decide MYSELF when I update.
3. The new icons are downright ugly.
4. iOS 7 is NOT intuitive to first-time users so a good manual will be needed.

2. yes you can disable auto updates. Its in settings -> app store options.

I would be interested to know if you feel the same after you run it, because I found it to be a terrible experience that made me commit to using 6.1 until at least iOS 8.

Notification Center does not have all your notifications. Control Center does not have all your settings. In both cases, like the name says, it just centralizes the most important ones.
Novice users don't want to use the Settings app. There is no need to concern troll about it.
