It's no secret that there have been a plethora of rumors and speculations regarding iOS 7. Perhaps the most prevalent among those rumors is the report that iOS 7 will be adopting a flatter look as a result of Jony Ive replacing Scott Forstall as head of Human Interface design. Even the WWDC 2013 banners show the logo of iOS 7, which features a flatter, minimalistic look. But according to one man, all these iOS 7 leaks and rumors may have been wrong.
Daring Fireball's John Gruber, during this week's episode of his podcast, has shared some information he has learned about Apple upcoming mobile operating system, which will be unveiled tomorrow at WWDC. According to one of his sources, "all the leaks are wrong" with regards to iOS 7.
I know almost absolutely nothing. I don't think I've been this ignorant of what's coming, software-wise, for a keynote since the iPhone 1 back in 2007. Which is great...I'm super excited. [...]
The one thing I keep hearing over and over again from friends who would know is...the one word I keep hearing is that some of the stuff they're going to show is "polarizing."
And I also heard from somebody that just "all the leaks are wrong." Which is interesting. I have no idea what to make of it.
Does this mean that iOS 7 won't have a very flat interface as the rumors say? Does this mean iOS 7 will stay the same for the most part? Even Gruber doesn't know what to make of it. However, in the past, Gruber also did share bits of information regarding Apple's plans.
The Worldwide Developers Conference 2013 keynote will kick off tomorrow June 10, 10:00 AM Pacific Time. It is expected that the main focus of the event will be iOS 7 and OS X 10.9. [via MacRumors]Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
