Rumor: Design changes coming to iOS 7; software is falling behind schedule

0. phoneArena 03 Apr 2013, 00:17 posted on

Apple fans have been demanding that Apple re-design iOS and the word is that the design for iOS 7 is so radically different that engineers are using polarized display filters in public so that wandering eyes won't be able to see the new design; the bad news is that engineers have been pulled from other projects to work on iOS 7 because it is behind schedule...

All platforms that originally borrowed from apple/iOS. This is why on some level everyone is suing everyone.

U always say that when some one challenges u. I have a great life, just do your research before u post silly stuff. We all know u hate apple, but u can still at least be intelligent about it. "Get a life" my fiancé, son, health and fitness, and career are my life.

I'm hoping for a redone, nor revamped, user interface.

One thing i would love to see is If it was actually iOS 7.0 instead of iOS 4.4 as it is more accurately referred to.

A dedicated screen to put highly used apps or more customization would be great, none of this you can customize app drawer nonsense. Its clunky and outdated.

If not the above at least a pinch to zoom on its app drawer is much needed as well as a burst mode for camera.

Quick toggles like jellybean or how Samsung has implemented on touchwiz.

Basically catching up to features Android has had for awhile.

It doesn't need a voice assistant that will be marketed like crazy, or a new feature that is more gimmick than useful. What it needs is to add a tonne of features they have either intentionally, or through lack of foresight, left out in previous updates.

Also new icons please, its current ones are dated,clunky and ugly.

I'm just wondering why they might make it known that they are, if they have no intention on doing so. Why shoot themselves in the foot like that? Generally companies step up when they need to, to stay relevant. Your comment sounds more like the typical bashing type, rather than something credible. I'm just saying

I wonder if 3Gs would support iOS7. I can't wait to see the new design, hope the price would change too hahah. By change I mean cheaper.

Have you seen the horrific lag on the 3GS running iOS 6? It's like the G1 running ICS.

I think it's time for Apple to really revamp the iOS platform, as it is getting old and stale, losing its cool. It's been the same since 2010 with little changes in the design and features. If Apple does this new iOS right, they could start seeing even more promising sales.

they are not able to improve anything....they put very small amount of money to innovations, they have transferred money to litigation and corruption (iPads for turkey policemen????, higher prices of IT products in Australia, fine in Italy etc.) .....simply new Microsoft

So you are expecting this cultural and technology icon, pioneering innovator to just make a crappy version of iOS 7, because they aren't ABLE?! Jesus, does everyone undermine Apples power and money? Whatever they throw in the market, everyone follows! They reinvented phones, mobile gaming(applications), tablets, branding, music players and music. Apple is able to reinvent and if people disagree then they have had their heads in the sand for the last 10 years.

yes, everybody follows iPad where you can not even copy a file and open the file in any app = its not a tablet, its just a gaming console.....who follows Apple must be logically simply simple and very limited person....its not in contradiction that world is full of limited persons....thats the reason Apple lives, why not? :)

and imagine, that someone thinks that Apple reinvented a Phone, but iToy has just iCons and is made for fingers......like Windows 3.1 without touch display....nothing more.....just stolen LG Prada but LG didn't have so many limited fans....thats all the secret :)

What you said makes no sense with no proper example/explanation .. just biased statements. I wont bother with you.

While I myself am an Android fan, I disagree with your logic. Mainly I disagree because it is flawed. Just because someone chooses to use iOS doesn't make them any less intelligent. My father is much more intelligent than I, and he loves his iPhone.

It's people like you who use lower case letters to start a sentence and .... instead of commas, who truly are the less bright.

ok, facts:
1) first iPhones bought just Apple MAC or iPod owners
2) ifst iPads bought just iPhone owners (90 %)

and because of Apple has so a lot of limited fans, the world was mistaken

these facts are facts so you have to understand a little to written text :)

dear boys, deal with the facts :)

Wheres the source for these "facts". Don't just magically make them up from YOUR experiences, just because YOU don't like it doesn't make it true or right or even wrong. I bought an iPad, and i aint an iPhone owner, like many others who bought the iPad.
