ios 7

If you break it down, other than a rumoured overall of the UI design to a flatter cleaner Jony Ive-inspired scheme, we know very little about what exactly Apple have in store for iOS 7 at WWDC 2013 next week. However, according to new claims, what we’ve heard about iOS 7 is completely wrong.

Daring Fireball’s John Gruber has a reputation of being very accurate with Apple rumours due to his strong connections with sources close within Apple. While he mentions that he has heard very little of what exactly Apple has on offer this year at WWDC 2013, of what he has heard from people familiar with the subject matter is that “all of the leaks are wrong” regarding iOS 7.

Here’s a rough transcript of Gruber’s comments (via MacRumors):

“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 about it. […]

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.”

Was it all just a rumour for iOS 7?

We’ve heard that Since Forstall’s exit at Apple, Jony Ive has been very hands on with his new role as head of human interface and has been rumoured to be pushing for a new flatter clean design for iOS 7.

But if consider Gruber’s comments to be correct then all the hints that have suggested a flatter design, including the banners for WWDC 2013, have been wrong, and in reality we know very little about what iOS 7 has in store for us tomorrow.

What do you guys think about this? Drop us a comment below.

  1. You want us to guess whether or not the rumors are correctt? Isn’t that what makes them “rumors?”

  2. O M G they moved the headset jack to the bottom of the Iphone 5!!!!! I predict more overhyped minor tweaks……like adding cut and paste for the iphone.

  3. We have figured out that everyone is onto the fact that we haven’t innovated in the smartphone market in about 3 years. So when people start rumors that we might be actually innovating again, the best course of action is to say THE RUMORS ARE ALL WRONG!. Cause moving the headset jack to the bottom of the handset IS amazingly inspiring. It just is. SHUT UP! Hey WE ROUNDED CORNERS. Yeah. Beat that. Who brought true multi tasking to smart phones? Oh crap Palm. Who brought wireless charging to smart phones, oh crap Palm. Well who brought a smart phone that only required gestures and one hand to operate, Oh crap palm. Yeah well who was the first one to provide all synchronization and back up via the cloud?!?! Oh yeah Palm. But hey our ability to produce over hyped, over priced gadgets to the uninformed drove Palm into the GROUND!. That WAS innovative!….lol Long live Android
