Apple provided a lot of details for its upcoming iOS 7 when it was announced early last week during the company’s WWDC keynote. But it looks like Apple didn’t disclose everything it was planning to do with iOS 7 as they seem to be testing to integrate LinkedIn into its upcoming iOS update, similar to how deeply integrated both Facebook and Twitter are into iOS 6.
The report claiming of iOS 7′s deep integration with LinkedIn points to a code in the developer beta of iOS7 containing references to a single sign-on system for LinkedIn, which both Facebook and Twitter currently use in iOS 6. The purpose of the integration with LinkedIn is in order to share content directly to the service from within some iOS applications, such as Safari or Photo Album.
Apple is already planning to integrate LinkedIn into its OS X Mavericks as users will be able to share content to the social network from within the next version of OS X. Having the service integrate with iOS 7 makes complete sense when you factor that in, although we’re not sure just how popular sharing content on LinkedIn is compared to Twitter and Facebook.
