We’ve been hearing a fair bit about iOS 7 these days, with the rumors suggesting an overhaul of the operating system, at least as far as its user interface is concerned. Previously the reports have come from 9to5 Mac, but now it looks like they are being backed up by the folks at Bloomberg who are suggesting that iOS 7 will be getting an overhaul, although they also claim that the release of the operating system could be delayed due to the significant changes that are being made.
The site echoes reports that the UI will be receiving a flatter look, rather than maintain the realistic images which was favored by previous head of iOS, Scott Forstall, before he left the company. Bloomberg goes on to state that the calendar and mail apps could be receiving dramatic changes, although they will be introduced at a later date, and that head of iOS, Jony Ive, has also met up with the makers of gesture technology to discuss how more gesture features could be added to the software.
Assuming these reports are real, it looks like iOS 7 is shaping up to be quite the dramatic change that many iOS users felt was long overdue. In any case if the operating system is indeed delayed, hopefully at the very least we will be able to get a preview of it during WWDC.RELATED
