iOS 7 leaked screenshots hint at flashlight on next gen iPad

iOS 7 leaked screenshots hint at flashlight on next gen iPad
It's hard to argue at this point that Apple didn't rush out iOS 7 in order to hit the Worldwide Developer Conference deadline. The software itself is pretty buggy, the design seems unfinished in many placed, and the biggest clue of all: there was no iOS 7 beta for the iPad. Well, we're just getting the first leaked screenshots of iOS 7 on the iPad, and it looks just about how you'd expect.

The screenshots come from ApfelPage.de and show various parts of the OS like the settings, search, Safari, contacts, etc on the iPad. As you would expect, the UI looks a lot like what we've already seen on the iPhone, although some features (like the Control Center) look much better on the iPad, while others (search) don't look like they've been optimized properly for the larger screen size. 

One odd thing is that as you can see on the Control Center, there is an iPad optimized flashlight toggle, but none of the current iPads have a rear flash. In general, we don't want to read too much into such early software, but this could point to the addition of a rear flash either on the next-gen iPad or iPad mini. Thanks to Spiderman4 for pointing that out!

The official iOS 7 beta for iPad is expected to be released in the next few weeks.

michael why did pa remove the "Not all nexus 4 screen are created equal (some are worse than others)" ? i really do wanna read it. too bad the article was removed after merely 10 minutes When i open the article, It says "Error not available" This is embarassing, What are you trying to hide ? http://www.phonearena.com/news/Not-all-Nexus-4-screens-are-created-equal-some-are-worse-than-others_id43938

I don't know why Ray removed the post, but I can assure you there's nothing to hide. The basic idea is that different models of Nexus 4 have slight color variations in the display that may or may not always be noticeable to the naked eye. The article could just have easily been titled "Not all Nexus 4 screens are created equal (some are better than others)" if you're worried about a negative slant

What's with the opening sentences of the article? Do you not know how a BETA works? They didn't rush anything out, they got it out now so developers can beta test and update their apps before the final update is pushed it. Of course there's bugs, it's a BETA!

Even beta software can be rushed

I agree with a Michael. Based on past Apple scenarios, even final products may be rushed, for example like it was with Apple Maps. Apple introduced Apple Maps as final product, but in reality Apple Maps was not finished and almost unusable.

You mean like the current desktop iteration of Google Maps? As for iOS 7 Beta 1, it was rushed, and there are still more features coming to iOS 7. Development was stopped for WWDC to get a stable beta.

The calendar icon on the iPad sure looks messy as hell with the dots all over the place. Im starting to get the feeling that Apple is changing things up just for the sake of it! Maybe they hired some kids, gave them too much control and now the Apple office is up side down? they should make a movie out of this chaos.

Where the hell is the dislike button.....??? Not gonna use it on the ipad but i m missing it veeery much....!!!

The dislike button was for trolls only. If you don't like something, you can say so with words.

But it's much easier to just hit the dislike button. And somebody might have already said the thing I would like to say. Like/dislike system is very good to see peoples opinions. I think that the like button cannot exist without the dislike button, because now if a comment has for example 20 likes I might think that people like that thing but in reality there would be 50 dislikes for that comment.

make it so if they hit like or dislike they are then made to comment or the like.dislike disappears. that way theres no way for trolls to hide and dislike everything. no way for fanboys to hide and thumb the fanboy comments up either. everythings out in the open and will hopefully promote discussion ofcourse its not perfect there will always be idiots abusing the system
