Apple may announce iOS 7 on June 10 during WWDC
It has been almost one year since Apple officially announced iOS 6. The time seems right for a new major release to come, doesn't it? Well, it looks like that's what Apple has in tow for its 2013 Worldwide Developers Conference, which is set to kick off on June 10 with a preview of "new versions of iOS and OS X".
While there are many things we'd like to see introduced with iOS 7, no one yet knows what the platform's new version will bring. Even the rumor mill has been pretty silent on the matter, although that might change by the time the conference begins. The only few hints we currently have thrown on the table are the possible introduction of a "killer iOS app" for handling mobile payments and the launch of a new internet service of some kind. We're also hearing rumors about an iOS UI redesign being pushed by Jony Ive – visual interface tweaks to make the platform look flatter and simpler.
For those who are interested in attending WWDC 2013, tickets for the event will go on sale this Thursday, April 25, at 10:00AM PDT. The event begins on June 10 and will last through June 14. More details are available at the press release below!
