Snippet: Whispers About iOS 7 ☇

Shared on April 2, 2013

John Gruber and friends share some thoughts and speculation about iOS 7 development:

What I’ve heard: iOS 7 is running behind, and engineers have been pulled from OS X 10.9 to work on it. (Let me know if you’ve heard this song before)…

…Regarding Ive: Word on the street is that iOS engineers with carry privileges all have some sort of polarizing filter on their iPhone displays, such that it greatly decreases viewing angles, thus making it difficult for observers to see the apparently rather significant system-wide UI overhaul.

Although I hope we don’t see anything too dramatic, a fresh coat of paint is always a good thing to get excited about, especially for those who feel that iOS is stale.
