WWDC banners suggest the new flat design for iOS 7
With the 2013 WWDC coming to the Moscone West Center in San Francisco next week, decorations for the annual event are being put up all around the venue. While we showed you one of the banners on Wednesday, the signs are really going up in earnest on Friday. These banners and signs remind everyone that minus a surprise device introduction, the biggest news to come out of the conference will be the introduction of the revamped iOS 7. Most likely the look of the banners is some sort of clue as to what we can expect from the revised UI designed by Jony Ive. The signs put up for WWDC 2013, show a flat, less glossy look that has long been rumored for iOS 7.

What else related to mobile might be introduced at WWDC this year? One case manufacturer says that Apple will introduce the firth-generation Apple iPad at the event although other reports have the tablet just going into mass production this month or next. While it is unlikely that we will see a new Apple iPhone or Apple iPad at the show, now that Sony Music is in the fold we should see the introduction of iRadio. This is Apple's long-rumored streaming music service that is expected to be free and supported by mobile ads.

He means how much they are usually known for hyping their product or OS releases, just to reach the end result of it either looking or largely performing the same, or as he said... it just being "boring"

And yet you scrolled, clicked, read, and posted a comment on the article just to say its boring? I think you're excited, even though you hate apple. It's ok c'mon out the closet.

Curious and excited have two different meanings. That's not to say expectations are high.

Thanks for paying for the iOS articles. Your comment is utterly worthless, but at least by clicking and posting you make the article appear more popular than it would be if you had ignored it. So the PA and their advertisers keep thinking these articles have value. So seriously, thanks for you patronage.

LMAOOOOO!!! Exactly Mxy, just add in stupid, and you've got gadget. Never makes any sense at all. The other day he made all these remarks about Sony not signing with apple. Looks like he was wrong again...or as usual.

Literally eh? I would've gone with "wedding day" or "birth of a child", but sure, we'll go with WWDC7. Different strokes for different trolls!

Well let us see what changes are to come to iOS. Though I will say that if the changes are purely things they should have done already, it might not be as impressive as investors would hope and that might lower their stock price. Time will tell. I wish them well.

Hmm, they appear to be taking a similar approach to Windows Phone's tiles from a UI standpoint. Wonder if they're also taking that approach from a functionality standpoint, i.e. "live icons." Also wonder if this is going to be received positively or negatively from current and potential iPhone users. Guess we'll see in a couple of weeks.

You know MS is doing something right when Apple copies them. By copies I mean the flat look of Metro. Best looking OS IMO.

Best looking? No. Go to the new Outlook(hotmail metro-style) website and tell me that looks "good".

lol, the "flat" iOS will be nowhere near the flatness of metroOS that basically has no design at all... just trow a color in a square and drop some whitey to form letters...

I bet mainstream media and pundits on tech sites and blogs will rave about this being a "game changer" - or whatever those stupid little "revolutionary" terms of theirs, that are used arbitrarily, are.

Can't wait to see what apple has in store for iOS 7! I'm really hoping for a new look. I'm tired of wanting to jailbreak.
