Apple is expected to introduce its next-generation mobile software at WWDC in June, but the update probably won’t roll out until at least a few months later. Historically, Apple releases the next version of iOS alongside new iPhone launches, just like it did in October 2011 with iOS 5 and in September 2012 with iOS 6.
However, this is the first time Apple’s hardware design chief Jony Ive has been put in charge of iOS development, and the company is reportedly behind schedule. “What I’ve heard: iOS 7 is running behind, and engineers have been pulled from OS X 10.9 to work on it,” wrote Daring Fireball’s John Gruber.
