Website visits from iOS 7 increase heading toward WWDC unveiling
According to Onswipe, a company that uses HTML5 to help optimize websites for tablets, it has seen an increasing number of its websites receive visits from iOS 7 powered iPhones and iPads. On May 2nd, 23% of the unique iOS traffic to Onswipe enabled sites, came from iOS 7. Three-quarters of that traffic came from iPhones while the balance came from iPads. The testers searched for turntables and read about Apple's recent stock price decline among other things.
At the same time, data from Apple Insider shows that visits from iOS 7 to websites that it tracks, started rising on April 30th and peaked shortly thereafter. What we are seeing is Apple's MO when it comes to releasing its OS updates. First, the company tests the software internally before releasing it to registered developers. A few months after that, the public gets its hands on the software.
The new version of Apple's mobile operating system will be the first done by Jony Ive, taking over for the departed Scott Forstall who was a casuality of the Apple Maps debacle. Forstall's "skeuomorphic" icons, like leather textures and real-life looking icons, are expected to be replaced by flat looking designs.

As long as the simplicity is kept intact. It is the world's most advanced mobile os.

I could answer that but we don't want to worsen any fandroids ulcers, it simply is.

Well if that's you're argument... Here's mine, Android is the most advanced mobile OS in the world AND uses the best hardware, AND has the most users.

you missed out one point of most advanced mobile OS (android) that even after best hardware OS lags. This is a best part of android. :P

No tellin. What do you expect from ios7 bling?
20. blingblingthing (Posts: 440; Member since: 23 Oct 2012)
Pretty minimal. Maybe just new gestures to issue common commands. The same iOS intact.

apple better have gotten off its high horse and come back to reality, people want change and something that will blow them away
that been said no matter what you think of apple as a business they are a company that can pull this off, they implement existing features seamlessly so dont count them out
apple stop been arrogant and think like you did in 2007, bring something that outshines the competition rather then tries to keep up

It will be interesting to see how much of a revamp this will be. I don't see how much they could change it and still keep it simple for all the simpletons that use ios, anything with a learning curve could be to difficult for them.

''simpletons that use ios''
wow you want to generalise that much, you do know doctors etc also use ios....you calling them simpletons?
10. Captain_Doug (Posts: 759; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)
Tech wise, anybody can be a simpleton.
16. blingblingthing (Posts: 440; Member since: 23 Oct 2012)
I agree with Doug.
Anyone still using the ease of use argument for iOS has to be a simpleton or as I like to think of them as a rookie.
25. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
true but he's basically generalising saying anyone who uses ios is a simpleton
im bored of the myth android is for more techy people.this site proves thats not true
18. darkkjedii (Posts: 11849; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
My note 2 had a learning curve and I mastered it. We simpletons love android too.

You Apple fans "can't wait!" every single year for a new iOS, and each and every single time it's the same time. Open your eyes. Haven't you still noticed that iOS 1 on the iPhone 2G, is almost no different from iOS 6 on the iPhone 5?
They have the innovation and the patents, but they refuse to release it. It's a nice money making strategy to keep milking. But with Samsung, even HTC now, doing what they do, if I were Apple? I would snap out of it and release some new stuff.
Do you remember when the iPOD was introduced? It was a WOW moment in the tech world. When the iPhone was introduced, it was a bigger WOW moment. It's time. Apple needs the next big thing. It wasn't the iPad, and it won't be a wrist watch. Then again, they lack Steve Jobs's touch, so the whole thing might go down under.

I'll give him credit for his work on the iPhone, but the product has been stagnating during his time also.
