Haven't seen that " Wirelessly posted" appear recently.

Could also rock this app on Android, which allows you to edit the user string

Apple doesn't care about holidays or family. All that matters is profit. Ive probably worked on Christmas and is working today.

I agree. I do like the idea, though of just using the default camera app to scan QR codes and similar stuff.

Not sure if this makes a difference, but the same news was reported for iOS 6 in March of last year. So maybe we'll get an earlier iOS 7 preview/launch this year?

A new A7X, probably with more than 2 CPU cores with higher clock speed, and same GPU cores to drive the 4.8" retina screen.

What I have wanted since the first iPad is a way for my wife and I to have separate logins so our stuff isn't intermingled.

Good god it's the 1st January and so far today I've seen my first TV commercial for Easter, and now predictions of iPhone 6 and iOS 7... When will the madness end?

I always thought Ive delt more on the hardware design side. And less on the software side. But I could be wrong.

Ive is going to roll out a Post-phone era iPhone, no screen, just a hunk of machined aluminium and glass that vibrates slightly to tell you your having a call, which you wont be able to take on the device itself, because thats a feature no one uses there mobile phone for anymore, but its ok, because it will cost $2000 plus $100 a month with a contact for the life of you , your children and your grandchildren's life span.

ive gone back to carrying a plain old non-smart phone , it makes calls, texts and has the battery life of a week not a day.. for all the stuff i used to do on my "smart phone", well, im moving that to a 7" android tablet because it fits in my jacket pocket and i can carry that around for the day for browsing and email, and the larger screen is great.

iPhone, even with the slightly taller screen, is just too small to do everything that the smartphone has evolved into, and the iPad Mini, they just missed out on that being the right size for jacket pockets,

an iPhone every 8-6 months or less is going to pee people off no end, unless the two year contracts drop back down to 12 months but the prices stay the same.

While we have "few hints" about iOS 7, we can rest assured that it will be revolutionary and magical. My guess is that Apple stores will have special POS stations where customers will be able to scan their purchases and tap a payment point with their iPhones to complete the transaction.

It will be so revolutionary and magical that customers will want to buy apple stuff just to get a chance to use it, with lines forming outside Apple Stores the night before the debut.

I think that iOS 7 will also update existing stuff with cosmetic changes and other minor/major tweaks. Easier ways to buy stuff from the online iStore using your iOS device maybe? iTunes further integrated into third-party social networks? Fewer skeuomorphisms ?

I think you'd be better off getting an Android phone than waiting for these features from Apple.

Ive was given ownership of UI design when Forstall was let go.

http://9to5mac.com/2012/12/06/tim-co...sung-and-more/
On Jony Ive and his new role at the company:
Jony [Ive, senior vice president of industrial design], who I think has the best taste of anyone in the world and the best design skills, now has responsibility for the human interface. I mean, look at our products. (Cook reaches for his iPhone.) The face of this is the software, right? And the face of this iPad is the software. So itís saying, Jony has done a remarkable job leading our hardware design, so letís also have Jony responsible for the software and the look and feel of the software, not the underlying architecture and so forth, but the look and feel.

Drastic? Radical? It's been done with iOS 6; if anything, we should be seeking consistency, Ive already delivers on the aesthetics front.

You really need to buy two. They are personal and not to be shared.

Almost none of these would be of any use to me....and please no QR code ********.

Why would I want to restrict my phone from texting if its moving faster than 5mph. What if I'm a passenger, or on a bus, or a train, or any over moving carriage?

Um, no. I just... can't...
Mountain Lion is fine. Keep running Snow Leopard to the end of time.

Some valid points, regards point 3 thought how could you differentiate between passenger and driver.
