iOS 7 design rumoured to wow but is running late


Each year Apple treats its mobile device platform to a new version of the operating system that will often bring new features to the hardware it will be running on. There have already been a number of rumours for iOS 7 leading up to its release, and now the design is tipped to wow users but is running late in the build up to its eventual availability.

There has been a lot of speculation about the next major mobile software release from Apple recently, and now new reports have come in that are claiming that iOS 7 is undergoing a massive redesign. This new design has led the company to allow engineers to test the software in public but have provided polarized filters so they can be placed onto the mobile devices.

These filters will prevent anyone from the general public spying on the features of iOS 7 as they only allow viewing when looked at directly. Sources are also claiming that the work that is going on by Jony Ive is pleasing a lot of people at the company, but those that love rich textures will not be as happy.

The changes being made to the mobile operating system has meant work on the software is running behind schedule, so the company has pulled employees that was working on OS X 10.9 over to join the iOS 7 team.

We will have to wait and see what Apple has in store for iOS when it should be unveiled at WWDC 2013 in June, but hopefully the software will have fewer issues when compared to the current version that has been hit with a number of bugs.

What do you want to see most in iOS 7?

  1. You want android features. Get android. I’m already not happy with addition of notifications, I hate clutter. Settings are easy on iOS – hit settings icon and all the toggles you see on android are right there on top, first thing you see: wi-Fi, Bluetooth, plane mode, brightness, cellular toggles, etc. it will be redundant to have to swipe to get toggles like on android when you can aleady tap on iOS.

    Flash is dead – welcome to the future.

    I’d like to be able to move a pic to another folder instead of just copying a shortcut of that pic to another folder. Once I move out of the camera roll I want it gone from camera roll.
    Live icons for weather and clock.
    Set third party apps as Default.
    Ability to remove apps that come with iOS.
    Follow up questions for Siri.
    More free iCloud storage – common apple you got billions of $$$ – you can afford this.

    What I don’t want to see are damn half-baked, and sometimes useless or redundant android “features”.
