Apple may announce iOS 7 on June 10 during WWDC

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!

Maybe you should clean that up before syncing stuff.

Or maybe the"world's most advanced operating system" should include basic functions. Things like deleting all your photos without going to itunes or clicking them one by one, deleting multiple contacts, downloading files from the Internet without having to use third party apps. That's what outdated iOS lacks.

Really? that is your answer? He is talking about making it easier to clean it up and your answer is maybe you should have cleaned it up.... This is the retarded logic that sells the iphoneso well. Wait what!!!! The iphone has a retina display!!!! dang # best #screen #on #the # market When in reality it has 336 ppi and androids are working with 441... Did you know the iphone doesnt even have an HD screen? The resolution is just under 720p So when you get your fingerprint scanner ill just use my facial recognition software. When your asking siri whats the weather outside ill have it as my backround. When you want to back up your contacts and calander to icloud ill be backing up everything in my phone with gmail. ( songs included) when you want to download music ill be pulling it off a cloud storage offerred free by google. When you want share an app with someone you go ahead and find that on the app store, ill be using nfc to send them directly to it. I think ill stop there but i could go all day

It really depends on your expectations. If you're looking for the customization of android well then yea. If you are looking for a nice improvement with some useful features most likely not.

Look back at previous run-ups to WWDC - lot more leaking was happening compared to now. Add in Tim's recent comment about new iToys being released in the Fall, and WWDC could be kinda thin. Maybe Apple releases iRadio and that will be enough to distract from the sorry state that iOS 7 is in?

Well they usually show off new IOS about 3 months ahead so devs can get the betas and report the bugs for apple so this would make it about right for a sept/fall launch
