Soon enough, you may be able to use your iPhone to pay for the groceries, tune in to a new iRadio service and easily retrieve emergency information from anywhere around the world. These are just a few of the features we may see in iOS 7, the next update to Apple’s mobile OS. As June’s WWDC event steadily approaches, here’s a look at some of the most prominent iOS 7 rumors circulating on the Web.
Apple may ditch its skeuomorphic design and opt for a more flat interface with iOS 7, according to a The Wall Street Journal report from March. Jony Ive, Apple’s hardware design chief, will be spearheading the software’s development and has reportedly suggested a more “flat” interface that is simpler than the current iOS.
Daring Fireball’s John Gruber also writes that the next iOS may see a “rather significant system-wide overhaul,” although we’ll have to wait until Apple rolls out the software to know for sure.
