Gruber: All the leaks pertaining to iOS 7 are wrong; new OS build is
Not every one is expecting iOS 7 to be a flat, gloss-free UI when it is introduced Monday at WWDC. According to John Gruber, a journalist normally plugged into the Apple scene, the insiders at Cupertino that he normally talks with are telling him that all of the leaks about iOS 7 are wrong. Another word that he keeps hearing from his connections is "polarizing". That might be the last word that fans of iOS want to hear used to describe iOS 7.

The words from Gruber inject some mystery into tomorrow's WWDC keynote. Earlier on Sunday, the Wall Street Journal said that iOS 7 has "plain solid backgrounds and more white space," and will have a new way to share pictures and video.

Of course, this could be merely Apple trying to confuse everyone about what to expect tomorrow. Last week, we showed you an image of what was supposedly iOS 7. But unfortunately, the picture was not clear so no judgment could be made about any changes made by Apple.

Getting ready for an exciting day tomorrow. My sons first dunk contest "summer dunkoff", babysitting my 5 year old niece, who insists on rubbing the cat backwards which drives him nuts, Monday night baseball, and WWDC. Let the festivities begin.

Not getting my hopes up. Apple could release a skin job and people will buy it up just because. I don't expect a whole lot of increased functionality but I would like to be proved wrong tomorrow. There needs to be strong competition because if Apple does not come hard than why should Google worry. This is why Android is getting 4.3 instead of 5; Google is not scared of Apple anymore because Android matches/exceeds iOS. It's time for Apple to man up!!!
I actually believe that Google works better coming from behind. Just look at how stagnant Apple has become over the years as proof.

Some improvements to notifications, quick settings, I'd like to see smaller icons that reveal more background. A new way to see live info that's not a widget, I'd love to see them copy android and get an app drawer lol. Androids really pushed the envelope, so I think we'll see a lot of android inspired things, just do it in an intuitive way. Can't reinvent the wheel, just put your own "spin on it" ya know. Team wise die hard Yankees fan except for A-Rod.
