Instagram user Zac Altman has posted a photo (http://instagr.am/p/Ln1hWRhMqE/) showing a new banner going up at the Moscone West convention center confirming that Apple will be unveiling iOS 6 at next Monday's keynote address.

http://images.macrumors.com/article-new/2012/06/ios_6_banner.jpg


iOS 6 has been assumed to be a major topic of discussion for the event, but Apple has so far mentioned only that it will discuss the "future of iOS" at the event. The banner also displays a silver-colored theme that has been rumored to making its way to the iPhone to replace the blue theme present in many of Apple's apps. The silver theme has already been showing up on the iPad, but rumors of an Apple mapping app have suggested that the silver theme will moving to the smaller screen as well.

With Apple having dropped numbering and other descriptors from its latest model of the iPad earlier this year, there has been speculation that the company may follow suit with other products such as the iPhone. Today's banner indicates that the company will at least continue marketing iOS using its version number.

Update: A clear shot from CNet (http://news.cnet.com/8301-13579_3-57449792-37/apple-teases-wwdc-2012-with-ios6-banner-pictures):

Can't wait to see what ios6 will bring!

If Apple introduces any of the quick texting features that BiteSMS provides, I wouldn't really need to jailbreak. Perhaps Apple will have finally found a solution that pleases their standards that won't require us to switch apps just to quickly send or respond to texts.

Too bad I'll be on a flight back to the US while the main presentation is happening =( Hopefully there's wifi available on the flight!

I call hoax. Apple would never release an OS logo that looks like that.
People are going to be pissed. The font size is off. I think it is photoshopped. Someone is trying to drive up traffic to their website. I call hoax. I see a reflection where it doesn't belong. I think this is a controlled leak by Apple to gauge consumer reaction. They have 2 logos in the pipeline, and want to see what we think of each.

It's taken from right in front of the glass. The WWDC / iOS 6 banners are inside the building, while the street lamp, street and trees are the reflections behind the photographer.

Oh, and the photographer is invisible of course! :cool:

Either the street is a very intense reflection, or the banners are the reflection, and the image is flipped lol, maybe someone took it from the inside, and decided to take a picture of the reflection so as to not be caught.

But that's probably not it. Probably the reflection is of the street. Because... why take the time to flip it...

I really think Tim is going to surprise everyone at this event and literally open up a flood gate of stuff. I think it's going to be an EPIC proportion of smack downs on the industry.

Actually, iOS 6 was completely expected, not a surprise at all.

Apple typically releases the new version of iOS to developers a few months before the phone launches. Apple announced iOS 5 at WWDC in June last year and released the iPhone 4S in October, so don't be disappointed if they don't announce the new iPhone. That's just standard practice for Apple. All these iPhone leaks are interesting though, I wouldn't mind seeing the phone come early.

Honestly, that's not an advanced feature. It's a dated one. Manually organizing files is the opposite of advanced. That's not saying that there aren't times where it can be useful, though, there are times. Things like libraries are more advanced features though.

Lovin' the idea that iOS could have a more prominent silver U.I. People complain about OS X Lion looking too 'plain', but at the end of the day, this is done to draw attention to colours when they do become visible.

It's just smarter overall and will unify the look of OS X and iOS.

I can't believe the bad memory people have on these boards. Here is a bit of history:

iOS 2.0 (Then called iPhone OS) announced March 2008
(Released July 2008)

iPhone 3G (2nd Gen) announced June 2008
(Released July 2008)

iOS 3.0 (Then known as iPhone OS) announced March 2009
(Released June 2009)

iPhone 3GS (3rd Gen) announced June 2009
(Released June 2009)

iOS 4.0 announced April 2010
(Released June 2010)

iPhone 4 (4th Gen) announced June 2010
(Released June 2010)

iOS 5.0 announced June 2011
(Released October 2011)

iPhone 4S (5th Gen) announced October 2011
(Released October 2011)

iOS 6.0 WILL BE announced June 2012
(Released _____?)

iPhone (6th Gen) will be announced _____?
(Released ______?)

For me, all I want for iOS 6 is one thing:

Third Party app communication.


In other words, I want apps to "talk to each other."

Personally for me, I could care less about: FaceBook Integration, widgets, new UI.

Apps talking to each other IMHO would be enormous. All other stuff for me is just icing.

I can't believe the bad memory people have on these boards. Here is a bit of history:

iPhone (1st Gen) announced Jan 2007
(Released June 2007)

iOS 2.0 (Then called iPhone OS) announced March 2008
(Released July 2008)

iPhone 3G (2nd Gen) announced June 2008
(Released July 2008)

iOS 3.0 (Then known as iPhone OS) announced March 2009
(Released June 2009)

iPhone 3GS (3rd Gen) announced June 2009
(Released June 2009)

iOS 4.0 announced April 2010
(Released June 2010)

iPhone 4 (4th Gen) announced June 2010
(Released June 2010)

iOS 5.0 announced June 2011
(Released October 2011)

iPhone 4S (5th Gen) announced October 2011
(Released October 2011)

iOS 6.0 WILL BE announced June 2012
(Released _____?)

iPhone (6th Gen) will be announced _____?
(Released ______?)


-------------------------------------

My bets are still on a sept/oct release!

I'd bet August/September. Last years model was delayed. It's usually 2-3 months. I need a new phone now though, I'd love to see it come even earlier.

At this point, a file system would make it less advanced. Let's get to the file system-less future!

How do you figure? Currently, if I made a song on my iPad, I have remember which app I made the song in; so, I have go open up Garageband and see if it's there. Then, if it's not, I have go into FL Studio to see if I made it in there. A simpler solution would what I do on my Mac - I have a folder named "Song Demos" that store all my music demos from different apps (which I can have an overview of all my demos in my glance).

Also, if you're working on a project that involves mixed files (a Word Doc, a Photoshop file etc...), you can't group them in iOS & are forced to jump into applications just to view where your files are.

I guess it's not a big deal for people who just use iOS devices to consume media, but if you're creating, it's a drawback.

Honestly, that's not an advanced feature. It's a dated one. Manually organizing files is the opposite of advanced. That's not saying that there aren't times where it can be useful, though, there are times. Things like libraries are more advanced features though.

Really there should be one place where files of a certain type are stored.

Basic example. There should not have to be separate storage areas for video files for each video player you install.

Video files (like other files) should be stored in one location that all programs can access. It's daft otherwise

either the "new iPhone" does not change much or the iOS6 will give something away in advance and they might as well just announce the phone. like if the screen size changes, wouldnt they have to announce that in advance other wise the iOS6 beta will be pointless

e. g.

hey devs we gave you the iOS6 beta a few months ago to adjust your apps but LOL what we didnt tell you is that the screen size is gonna be different, so you have to do it all over again

Apple did this with iOS 4. Developers spent months working on new apps and then on the day of WWDC Apple was like "oh, by the way, now double the resolution and you have 2 weeks before the iPhone 4 goes on sale, enjoy"

(not a direct quote)

If Apple does stretch out the screen, they can probably do something like what they did with the first iPad, have black bars on both sides (letter box) until the developer updates the app to take advantage of the extra real estate.

Yes, but the problem here is that there is no official standard for this in the OS. The app devs need to create a specific API in order for this to happen. This is why some apps can use "save in DropBox" whereas others cannot.

This is just one of *many* examples of why iOS *absolutely* needs apps to communicate with each other.

That would be a terrible idea for Apple... If they introduced the iPhone 5 now and set the release date for September, they would kill sales for the iPhone 4/4s for 4 months.

apple won't show the new phone, there just isn't enough time or reason for them to show it at WWDC.
it will come out and be shown in the fall, like last year.
the music keynote/event is now the iPhone

for those with the iPhone 4, waiting a few extra months won't be such a big issue, you will be able to renew your contract in oct.

the screen issue, i think thats something that apple can keep hidden till later on in the beta testing, or that they will have a way apps to be resized with very little work.

WWDC is about the OS, Mac OSX, and iOS.

apple won't take the spotlight away from Mac OSX, just for a phone. will be a silly risky move

If it's one thing I learned, just accept that fact that iOS 6 will be announced on Monday, and don't think too much about it.

If you watch the keynote as it unfolds you'll likely enjoy the features more then if you build up expectations of what you want it to have. If it doesn't, you'll just end up disappointed and not enjoy anything new that it does.

As always, I expect people to be disappointed that it does have some feature that they really wanted. It's never anything mind blowing, but there's usually a few goodies in there we don't mind having!

Really there should be one place where files of a certain type are stored.

Basic example. There should not have to be separate storage areas for video files for each video player you install.

Video files (like other files) should be stored in one location that all programs can access. It's daft otherwise

That's probably why I mentioned libraries..

With a traditional OS, you tell the OS where your files are by navigating through a hierarchical list of files and folders. This is not an advanced feature.

With an advanced OS, the OS knows where your files are and brings them up when you need them. iOS has elements of this but it's not all the way there, which is why some people want a traditional file system. My point is that adding a traditional file system would not be an advancement (it's an old/dated concept), although in some cases right now it may be an improvement.

iOS maintains libraries for certain items, like photos which are accessible from any app without you telling the app where to find them. Windows 7 can create libraries from multiple folders. The idea behind a Library is that the user doesn't need to know where the file is, the OS just needs to be able to bring it up for you when you want it.

With a properly set up video library, you wouldn't need to store videos in the same place, the OS would simply know where they all were (for instance, in other app folders) and let you access them from wherever you wanted.

The traditional, visible and hierarchical file system is how we are accustomed to accessing our files, but it's certainly not the most advanced.

Nah. Announcing the new iPhone in the fall (September/October) leads to record-breaking sales, and Apple has figured this out. They're going to wow us with what iOS 6 is going to bring, and that's what's going to have to hold us over until the fall/holidays, when they announce the new iPhone. Then they'll break records.

They're going to wow us with what iOS 6 is going to bring, and that's what's going to have to hold us over until the fall/holidays, when they announce the new iPhone. Then they'll break records. Again.

This is typical Apple strategy I think. No phone announcement. At best they may inform developers of screen changes. And give a roughy announcement date for the hardware. People who want new hardware will wait. iOS6 preview will be the decider. Some don't care and get what's out now and a few will defect.

----------

New iPhone 5 will be released on June 29th (5th year anniversary of the original iPhone release).

Cutting it kind of close given no beta yet. Can't imagine they would waste the date though. Hmm

----------

I hope a little tweake will be to ad a refresh button or mechanism at the bottom of safar. It's a long way to the top of this forum for my Artheritic fingers. Jokes.

Those who want a "file system" are already using something like Dropbox.

Dropbox obviously has nothing to do with File System. It only exposes iOS deficiencies. OS has file system when you can do Save As/Open File in your apps. With iOS, you can't. Instead, you have to use a patchwork of "features", tricks and weird applications that try to mitigate the absence of a real file system.

I don't know what I want from iOS 6? I don't want Facebook what so ever, but we will see what happens with that, I don't use Twitter. Apart from that iOS does what I want and I like the way it does it.
I don't want widgets like Android as I think they run the battery down and make the interface too cluttered.

So I will be hopefully pleasantly surprised when they announce the new features. I think they can improve Safari though so will be keen to see what they do with that.
It would also be nice Apple to allow me to delete your apps off the phone!

Hope you're right. I'd love it. However, I'm putting money on that they won't. They haven't streamed live in *any* event in almost 10 years.

Hope I'm wrong.

I can't remember which event It was, but a couple years ago they streamed an event to apple devices only. I remember specifically because I watched it on my iPad 1 in McDonald's. Hopefully somebody reads this and can confirm the event I'm speaking.

To note......it didn't go so well. Freezes and delays were a huge problem. But then again, the problem may have been McDonald's wifi

That's probably why I mentioned libraries..

With a traditional OS, you tell the OS where your files are by navigating through a hierarchical list of files and folders. This is not an advanced feature.

With an advanced OS, the OS knows where your files are and brings them up when you need them. iOS has elements of this but it's not all the way there, which is why some people want a traditional file system. My point is that adding a traditional file system would not be an advancement (it's an old/dated concept), although in some cases right now it may be an improvement.

iOS maintains libraries for certain items, like photos which are accessible from any app without you telling the app where to find them. Windows 7 can create libraries from multiple folders. The idea behind a Library is that the user doesn't need to know where the file is, the OS just needs to be able to bring it up for you when you want it.

With a properly set up video library, you wouldn't need to store videos in the same place, the OS would simply know where they all were (for instance, in other app folders) and let you access them from wherever you wanted.

The traditional, visible and hierarchical file system is how we are accustomed to accessing our files, but it's certainly not the most advanced.

That's fine.

At the moment if I have 3 video players, I have to have 3 copies of the same film on the iPad, that is nothing short of moronic for an OS to behave

Would it be too much to ask that the next iPhone have FM radio? And yes I know about Tune-In, iHeart, etc. I'd love to be able to get radio without having to stream it over Wi-Fi or cellular. Especially in an office environment where Wi-Fi isn't available, or isn't allowing for personal use. Apple has FM radio in the iPod Nano so why not the iPhone or ipod Touch?

Hello, file system on an iOS device?

Depending on the idevice used and its amount of memory, you want to use up that memory to store stuff that you can access many other ways?

LogMeIn lets' you connect to and control your main computer from any place with internet access
Dropbox gives you access to all the files deemed important if you put the app onto your idevice
iCloud or other like services will store whatever you like
Google documents or the like can save and file

and on and on........

Why would anybody want to clutter up an iphone or ipad with files?

If you need that, take along a MacAir or MacBook etc.

Why not? They have for the last 4 years.

Hardware always follows software 2-3 months later.

Question, I'm completely ignorant here, wasn't the 3G released before they had the new iOS?

I remember that they released iOS 2 some time after I got my 3G (and I didn't get my 3G right when it came out either, apparently though about a month after it came out, maybe a little sooner)?

I remember it cause it actually made the iphone's browser be stable (the damned thing crashed so much on safari before that it was a testament how much I was really loving my phone that I didn't want to throw it against the wall, it was very reliable to crash constantly. I'm pretty sure if 2 hadn't come out as soon as it did the newness of the phone would eventually wear off and it would start really pissing me off. 2 happily fixed that problem).

I never said iOS performs perfectly, I just said a file system isn't advanced. There are are areas that a file system could improve iOS, but there are other ways to improve it as well.

Although I do have to question why you have a) 3 video players and b) need to keep the same movie on all 3 video players...

Dude, relax. Your iPhone storage is full of files, you just do not have direct access to them. As a matter of fact, without explicit file system, you have to duplicate some files (as someone above mentioned - when you have three viewers you have to create a copy of the movie or whatever for each of them to be able to use them. Not to mention the fact that without file system implementation of support for memory cards is impossible. Notice that Android phones can do everything you just mentioned (albeit much more elegantly - as is the case with Dropbox - because of the existence of file system) and then a lot more because they do have a file system.

Uh, you do realize last year with the 4S they had a bunch of iphone 3GS early adapters that, yes, apparently they did decide to risk losing some of them due to waiting longer to release the phone.

(Not that I don't want them to release the new phone sooner as I got the 4 the day it came out so my upgrade is available at this point).

Darn, it must have been an update to 2. Either way the version that came with my phone sucked and I'd be shocked if the iphone had a good reputation for stability if they hadn't fixed it (seriously, safari would crash at least two times every time I used it).

Still, I was kinda hoping I was remembering right cause at least it would show that Apple has been willing to release iOS after the phone (mainly cause while I do believe the phone will be out in fall sometime I would totally love a June/July release).

Good. It's clear that users have been asking for a richer UI.

App developers have to do quite a lot of customising these days, because raw iOS standard controls don't have the polish that AppStore users expect. Its usable because Cocoa touch lets you still make amazing apps, but you have to customise basically everything.

The appearance API ion iOS 5 helped, but a more modern standard visual design would be great, too. Greater flexibility in the system controls would also be much appreciated (especially UINavigationBar, UIToolBar, MKAnnotationView), as would some sort of layout container views so that views don't have to be statically placed.

Besides that, I also expect to see OpenCL come to iOS,

I don't think the new iPhone will be called the New iPhone. I think the change in iPad naming scheme has more to do with it being considered a computer, like an iMac or MacBook, while advertised as the new iMac etc they are still just called an iMac. The confusion with that naming scheme when it comes to iPhone and iPad is that they usually sell the old product at a cheaper price point next to the new product, which they don't do with their computers lines. This means that you will have an iPhone 4S sitting alongside the new iPhone, which I guess is okay. But then you have the issue when the new new iPhone comes out, what do you call the old new iPhone? Or for that matter the new new iPhone? I suppose you could call the old one the iPhone and the new one the new iPhone, but that seems pretty silly. They need a naming convention to differentiate their products that sit side by side, however it doesn't need a carryover name like they have used in the past, just a name to differentiate the low and high end models. So for example, you call them the iPhone and iPhone +, then when the + gets replaced it loses the + moniker and the new one gets the + and so on. At the same time they need to identify that the old model is now the base model, so it should be 'simplified' somehow, for example jamming iPhone 4 innards into a 3GS shell. A bit like the old MacBooks and MacBook Pro's, the high end gets a higher end casing, because that is the premium version.

So they need 2 models at each launch, a high end and a low end, the low end with carry over hardware, but in a low end case and then a high end with new hardware in a high end casing. With each iteration the low and high end have the same names like iPhone and iPhone +. This would eliminate naming confusion and adopt a similar convention to their other naming patterns.

At the moment their naming is all over the place and very un-Apple like.

Ooft baby, it's coming! Can't wait to hear news about the new iPhone later this year too.

iFile - Integration into all apps, your files can now be saved either within an app or into iFile for exporting onto computer in a faster, more fluid way. It evens allows app files to communicate between each other e.g. save a beat you make in a rhythm app into iFile, you can open it up in Garage band as a track and work with it from there. On top of that, it will feature it's own state of the art file viewer, for reading PDFs, watching movies, listening to audio files. Other features are an extractor for .zip .rar files etc.

That's just my idea of what a file app would be like, it would also decrease the barrier between full web browsers on computers and mobile web browsers by allowing the downloading of files onto phones.

Really that's not such a bad idea and I don't know how it would be going backwards in anyway, I've wanted that feature since the first iPhone. Now I know there's the USB Disk app, but an Apple version would most likely allow a larger amount of flexibility within the iOS and would have greater polish.

How does it contradict? I thought it would compliment the system? Weren't they looking to make their mobile platform more independent from computers? Wouldn't this help? What would you propose? Wouldn't the ability to communicate and send files between two apps be good? Or to download PDF's or files off Safari into iFile and then send them off to friends? Or the be ability to be able to play MKV, AVI, Flac and other file formats to be a reality?

I Wonder how big this event is going to be. You have the entire Mac Lineup Announcement and then there is iOS 6 and then other software and hardware launch. This is going to be the biggest WWDC ever.

Does the "world's most advanced mobile operating system" finally get a file system?

Not having a file system is what makes it 'advanced'.

Yep, just like the 3GS adopters had to wait a few extra months to get a 4S. Chances are the loyalists will stay with Apple even if they have to wait for a few extra months. There will be some that stray, but nothing to hurt Apple.

I was a 3GS adopter and didn't have to wait, I got my 4 via an early upgrade policy that was in effect, and the same thing happened with my 4 to 4S upgrade. I don't think they will release the new iPhone until 12 months passes since the 4S release.

That water ripple reminds of the S3's lock screen and the whole inspired by nature look.Maybe they now apple will start "designing for humans" too;)

On a more serious note ios5 and previous iterations had water drops but now it's a ripple that shows progression so i hope its something radically different.

The thing I wonder about is the-lead in time for developers to update their apps to that rumoured new resolution format. Apple gave a lead in of nearly 2 and a half months for the iPad. Now if that was generate excitement and get through the FCC, it also gave devs time to tinker. I can't see Apple giving a 2 and a half month lead in for the new iPhone, so the schedule for devs would be much tighter.

I know the departure from the current iPhone res to the rumoured new one is comparatively minimal, but maybe (and this might be crazy) in iOS 6, they'll start giving devs resolution / screen size targets that may prime them for new 'mystery' products that would use them?

Come next year I think they will conjoin OS X and iOS to create a single software platform. They will obviously use different formats on the Macs/Mobile Devices...what do you guys think?

I think Apple will wait to converge the two OSs until Mac OS11... as I assume it will be a major overhaul. If in fact they do plan on doing it. They may choose to keep them seperate but similar just to appease the pro users.

Shhhh, hush, don't state such cruel things. The nightmare of all nightmares for some; a horrific Frankenstein pink elephant in the room that sends shivers down the spines of OS X users. God save OS X! :p

VIVE LA OS X! :apple:

The way the iCon looks, I'm hoping for a redesign OS. It's kind of wrong that my 2 year old sis can do what I do. There is a point where I think something is to simplistic.

What do you mean? Everyone should be able to use any Apple product, no matter what! :p

Besides, as it's been clearly stated by so many, "everything you need to do can be done on an iPad, anything else is pointless, we're living in a 'post-PC era' now, get used to it." :eek: (and 640k ought to be enough for anybody, who needs a Mac Pro, pffft)

BTW this post was meant to be silly/sarcastic, I do not believe a word of what I wrote with regards to the end of the PC-era :)

I know Apple has hidden some messages sort of in the past in their announcements and all that, but seriously people y'all are just over thinking things WAY too much. It looks very identical to the background on the new iPad (just smaller), iOS5 Logo was the background when the phone came out, I am 99% sure that will be the default background for iOS6.

This fall? The iPhone is coming sooner then fall son. July/August at the latest. Last years delay was a fluke.

A fluke? Why are you even on this website ... seriously

Yea I'm keen to retire my little 3Gs. It's been a great phone. Just minor issues with the home button.
Have you tried recalibrating (http://www.redmondpie.com/how-to-recalibrate-iphone-home-button-to-make-it-more-responsive/) it?

Please know before you read this, I'm not trying to bust your balls, just trying to inform you, please try to read this with a hint of sarcasm.

People that like to make things for your entertainment... ie me
Apps, Videos, music, VIDEO GAMES! This web site. Are created on Mac Pros or other powerful computers.

I don't agree with the statement "everything you need to do can be done on an iPad, anything else is pointless" That is just a statement that people use to make themselves feel better about the product in which they bought. :p Also it goes against what I already stated, How am I to create quality entertainment on the iPad? You can't even make apps for the thing on it, you need a computer! I'm not saying that I'm the best at creating entertainment, but the people who do, with out them, the iPad would be nothing. Please don't come back and say, oh they don't count, there just a small amount of people, ok fine give them iPads, destroy every last computer, There would be no entertainment what so ever. Also if the world was replaced by iPads, it wouldn't just effect entertainment, Businesses too. Want to know why businesses love the iPad, GoToMyPc.com, there just using the darn thing to get to there computers.

SERVERS! this website and all that you encounter are hosted on GAINT SERVERS! Lets go and replace them with iPads :) Lets see how long that will last with the 640KB of ram (it's actually 1GB now, thought you should know). Lets she an app that can do that. Wait no, theres not an App for that...

Now we go to the Data centers! God help us. No internet with all iPads for this Tablet era.


Think different, don't go with the flow bedifferent (I hope you liked the irony there)

FYI iPads are PCs (personal computers, Last time I checked there for personal use and it is a computer) So were not leaving the era anytime soon. You know what if this really was going to happen, that the great thing about an era, like the 70s they fade. Computers will come back.

WATER RIPPLES??? What does it mean??

well traditionally water ripples have symbolically meant "one thing leading to another" or "one thing that influences everything else" so with that in mind one could conclude that iOS6 is the result of the proverbial "pebble in the pond" and everything will be influences by it.
