We’ve seen a number of iOS 7 concepts over the past few months that offer some interesting ideas into what the upcoming operating system can look like. Widgets, contacts, and a new lock screen have all been conceptualized in the past, but Jony Ive has been rumored to be planning to introduce a drastic overhaul of iOS 7 when it’s announced later this year.
A number of new features and design elements Ive is planning for iOS 7 has recently been revealed to 9to5Mac, the first of which will do away with the “heavy textures” which is found across iOS in favor for a unified scheme that features a more simple black-and-white tone. Some icon applications will be mostly white, but will have its own unique color scheme.
Some other areas of iOS 7′s redesign were also detailed such as the lock screen doing away with its glossy, reflective “slide to unlock” bar to make way for a more muted, black interface along with a redesign of the numerical pad when entering your lock code. There were many more examples over at 9to5Mac, but ultimately, what you should take away from this story is the rumors of a completely redesigned iOS 7 are pretty strong at this point, and the redesign will make iOS 7 look less flashy.

NVIDIA Has introduced its new high-end consumer graphics card, and it’s a monster. In fact, the new GeForce GTX 780 is very close to the company’s “professional” top of the line GeForce Titan, a Monolithic single-GPU card that contains 2688 stream processors that work on pixels in parallel. The GTX 780 has a slightly more modest count of 2304 such processors, but if you compare that to the previous GTX 680 (1536 processors) and GTX 580 (512 processors) we are talking about a big leap in raw horsepower.
