If Google was shy enough to announce Android 4.3 Jelly Bean at Google I/O 2013 than Apple can take advantage by unveiling iOS 7 at WWDC. After the departure of Scott Frostall from Apple, the Cupertino-based tech giant was in a tizzy mood with development going around iOS mobile OS. John Ive, Senior Vice President of Industrial Design is now responsible for the success or failure of iOS 7.
This year only Apple updated iOS to v6.1, which was criticized due to its buggy nature. Multiple sources have informed that the newer version of iOS is said to be "Black, White, and Flat" all over. The final design could resemble to Microsoft's Windows 8 OS, according to a person familiar with the matter. With WWDC slated to happen in the coming days, the first alleged image of iOS 7 leaked ahead of developers' conference.
According to iDownloadBlog( via Sonny Dickson), the first real iOS 7 home screen has apparently made its way to web. The image surely lack details, but it is hard to ignore the fact that Apple has almost finished working on iOS 7. Take this information as pinch of salt because the purported image might not give accurate picture about the final design.
In the meantime, designer Surenix re-created blurry icons (as mentioned above) into a mock up User Interface (UI). The made up interface appears to be flat in comparison to iOS 6. The iOS 7 will be lot more subtle in terms of design, as per some analysts.
Apple is said to announce refreshed iOS 7 at WWDC conference on June 10. On the same day, Google could announce Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Apart from forthcoming version of iOS; one could probably see the coming of updated MacBook Pro, iPhone , iPad and iPad Mini as well. Stay tuned to GizBot.
Apple iOS 7: All You Should Know
After the failure of Apple Maps, the company made a point to reinvent itself. However, after the demise of Steve Jobs, the product line announced under the leadership of Tim Cook was criticized by several analysts.
On the top of it company's biggest strength - software was even more humiliated in front media. The flop show continued with iOS 6 followed by iOS 6.1. Now, the Cupertino-based tech giant is waiting for June 10 to announce iOS 7. The refresh is coming, and it's almost confirmed by Tim Cook few days back. No one really knows whether the newer version will be compatible with current Apple devices or not. According to reports, Apple has been testing iOS 7, since past few months.
Some analysts believe that Apple iOS 7 won't change much in terms of design. Interestingly, one could see an updated version of Apple Maps too. John Ive is currently managing the entire iOS 7 development; so expect some major change in looks and feel factor. At the same time, iPhone 5S is also coming with a new way to unlock screen.
Other big additions are coming that includes: iRadio , a music streaming service, AirDrop Wi-Fi Direct - the feature was already present in OS X Mountain Lion, an update to iCloud and lastly much improved Siri.
