We’ve been heavily reliant on the WWDC logo to offer some kind of indication as to the changes to be made with iOS 7, and with just a weekend now to go before Apple’s WWDC 2013 kicks off in Moscone West, the Cupertino company has confirmed the logo of the forthcoming software.
As we’ve come to assume from the reports and rumors of late, the next version of iOS will be very much a clean-up job, and this demonstrated rather emphatically by the new logo. Take a look after the break!
A few days before any big tech event, the company or companies involved cannot help but to leave tell-tale signs lying around, and so it has proved as Apple begins dressing up Moscone West ready for the big WWDC 2013 kick-off this coming Monday.
The Rumor Roundup comes early this week in anticipation of Apple’s forthcoming WWDC keynote, AKA Christmas in June for Apple geeks, AKA the cue for thousands of idiot pundits to hit “publish” on their pre-drafted “Apple is DOOMED” drivel.
Before I tear into this week’s typically dumb rumors, let’s do a brief mini-roundup of what’s expected at WWDC.
What we will see
A preview of the next version of Apple’s mobile device OS is a guarantee. It’s widely expected that the user interface and design elements will have received an overhaul after designer Jonathan Ive took over responsibility for them.
Reuters is reporting that among the announcements we’ll see at next week’s WWDC keynote, Apple will introduce a new music streaming service called iRadio. The service will be free and ad-supported, Reuters says those in the know claimed, and will feature ads from the iAds team. The service is designed to dive into the already crowded market of music-streaming services, which includes Pandora, Rdio, Spotify, Slacker Radio and a number of other sizable options.
The notion of Apple bringing out a low-cost iPhone has always been suggested.
With such a popular brand at a sky-high price, perhaps it was always going to be an idea teased by the masses. But this year, there’s a really strong consensus that there will indeed be a cheaper model to help corner markets like India and China, as well as allowing those with less disposable cash to still rock an iPhone.
Today, images purporting to depict the device have been discovered on Weibo, the ‘Chinese Twitter,’ and although the bumper case, lack of a snap of the front of the device and a lot of blurriness make for a rather suspect leak, we have to check out all possible avenues in our quest to discover this elusive budget iPhone.
Apple is widely expected to unveil iOS 7, the next generation mobile operating system for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch at the Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) 2013, which is usually help in June.
According to recent rumors, iOS 7 is expected to come with significant UI improvements.
Designer F. Bianco has created a new iOS 7 concept, which showcases features such as Widgets, improved Lock screen, quick reply, quick settings, a new Shelf app to manage files downloaded from Safari and Mission Control.
