iphone-5With WWDC coming soon, we guess there are some things which we can more or less assume will be announced, namely Apple’s next major update to their iOS operating system iOS 7. iOS 7 is probably the most highly anticipated iOS update especially since Apple’s industrial designer, Jony Ive, will be the one at the helm of the team since he took over Scott Forstall’s place back in 2012. We’ve been hearing rumors about iOS 7 and thanks to the folks at 9to5 Mac, they have managed to obtain some intel about some of the changes that will be made to the operating system.

As expected of Jony Ive, iOS 7 is said to receive a redesign and will see a “flatter” interface rather than the glossy and skeuomorphic design at the moment. They claim that the redesign is expected to be a pretty big one to the extent that the whole icon set for Apple’s native apps will be changed, along with the tool and tab bars. The report also goes on to claim that there will be native polarizing filters built into iOS 7, which basically prevents people to your sides from reading what’s on your phone.

There will be a host of other new features introduced as well, so if you’d like to learn more, head on over to 9to5 Mac’s website for the details. In the meantime we suggest you take this with a grain of salt for now, but what do you guys think about these potential changes? Will they be a welcome one, or do you prefer iOS the way it is?
