View Full Version : Any chance for a leak of iOS 7?

I have been a avid follower of new iPhone/iPod/Macbook rumors in the past, but iOS 7 is the first time I have really followed and monitored rumors for the operating system. I for one, having hated the design of the iPhone 4 when it leaked, have learned that Apple knows what they are doing even before we understand as the consumer. I have faith that iOS 7 will be just what we need in an update to the iPhone software.

Having said that...what are the chances we see a leak of the design in the next few weeks? When iOS 6 was being rumored and tossed around I don't remember ever seeing anything prior to the WWDC announcement. I am getting anxious and want that exciting "first glimpse" that makes you feel like a kid on Christmas morning.

EDIT: And by leak I don't mean a beta version, I mean a screenshot.

But there was nothing to be 'surprised' about in iOS 6 ;)

lol true.

Still remember how Forstall blew through half of the features in like 2 minutes.

Good times.

Not exactly true, the Apple maps UI was leaked before iOS 6 was released.

I have a feeling we'll get some sort of leak before WWDC. Maybe not a screen shot but some details about iOS 7 (and more than it's "flat").

I agree. Leaks can be a huge let down. Sometimes it's just better to wait for the full announcement/demo at WWDC.

Either way. I'm excited. Will I look if there is a leak? Heck yes.

That's what I was thinking too. It's hard to believe that with so many people running ios 7 already that someone hasn't caught a glimpse. I'm impressed by their ability to keep it under wraps. Much easier with software than with hardware obviously.

Perhaps this is finally some of that "double-down security" that Tim Cook was talking about? :p

Obviously it's not related to the music negotiations where there is a journalist apparently sitting in the table disguised as Eddie Cue.

There hasn't been any major leaks of IOS other then IOS maps, Siri and some other "key" features. Apple is more known for iPhone leaks such as design and components. The first leak (that I can remember) was the design body of the iPhone 4. Then after that the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5.

With no real supply chain involved, the likelihood of leaks as we see with hardware is pretty slim.

Intrepid Apple employee with carry permission and poor judgement at a bar, you are our only hope.

Unless Apple decides to let something slip to a friendly blogger. I'm hoping nothing leaks and its a complete surprise.

Tim said he was going to double down on security. It seems he is doing a good "jobs" this time. I prefer it this way, rather than knowing exactly what it will be like before it is even released!

How do you lock down leaks with a negotiation with a third party?

The lack of news this week in regards to iOS 7 is depressing.

24 days.

iOS 5, Siri leaked a couple of days before the 4S event (as in a completely accurate mockup/remake of the UI and how it worked).

iOS 6, Maps screenshots leaked a couple of weeks before WWDC.

So maybe, but i wouldn't expect anything.

Well i think one good spot to take a view of this new flat design, is to look at iTunes, especially after this update few days ago (i think the update caused this difference)

I just hooked up my iPhone to sync a little of music, and realized that the bottom bar has kind of changed. The bar where your audio, photos and app usage on the phone is displayed has a new "flat" look.

I cant remember if it looked like this before...hmm.

We might see a leak of the odd screen and design like the Apple Maps leak last year, but doubt we would see a leak of iOS beta IPSW file before WWDC.

We might get a list of devices that are supported, the day before WWDC like with iOS 6, when we found out the build number and that the iPad and iPod touch 3rd gen were cut off.

Possible. But it will only be days, not to say hours before WWDC.

slim to none.

the only thing that apple can't protect the leak is from vendors / OEM manufacturer who built their devices.

iOS = software so it must be an apple engineer / designer / programers that design and code it, unless he/she want to lose their job, there will be no leak from software side with apple.

Did iOS 6 maps screenshots leak? I thought they were just highly accurate mockups, like the Siri mockups.

Best strategy: Do not visit MacRumors website. That way, you will be just like the other 94% of (normal) Apple customers.... completely oblivious to Apple rumors and leaks.

You guys are overreacting. The bar used to look like this in iTunes 10. There's also a bar having similar appearance in the storage section of the About This Mac dialog in OS X.

No, but there's a thin line betweenr them considering most leaks are highly untrustworthy.

It's slightly different. Some of the colors are different gradients and labels are integrated instead of a legend below.

Another "flat" design is the purchase button if you go to the app store on your iPhone/iPad for the "free app of the week".
