We all know that it is coming. Apple recently admitted it in a press release regarding the Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC). The release of iOS 7 is imminent. The questing now is, when? According to Bloomberg, the next mobile operating system update for Apple’s mobile devices may be the biggest in the company’s history. And, it may take longer than they thought to be ready for us.
According to unnamed sources that spoke with Bloomberg, Apple’s senior vice president of Industrial Design, Jonathan Ive, has been a busy beaver, overseeing a complete redesign of iOS. This undertaking is a bigger task than Ive realized.
Since the ousting of former software chief Scott Forstall, it has been rumored that Ive would throw out the skeuomorphic themes that have gotten somewhat out of hand (wood bookshelves, leather bound address books, etc.) and replace them with a more streamlined, sleek design.
