Some image trawling... what is this?

I just found this in my Chrome image cache... but what IS it?

The source URL was some scrambled Apple URL which is now 404'ing...

That's a standard promotional image for WWDC 2013. Nothing fancy.

Indeed it is. Question is why would you casually go through your image cache?

Springboard is a lot a different things besides the name of iOS' main app. In web design lingo, it is commonly used as a placeholder or starting place image.

Okay . Just seems a slight coincidence, since iOS uses a "springboard" launcher, right?

Also it says "_stack..." - there's stacks in OS X - is there any correlation, do you feel?

None at all. Stacks is likely the name of the image that is given for internal purposes.

So, nothing to do with there being a stack of icons, and a springboard being iOS' traditional launcher name? Do you work for Apple, and if so, do I sense denial? LOL!

Apple's internal web marketing team likely calls it a "stacks" image, because it looks like a stack of squares. The web team also likely has the "springboard" in the image name because it is the springboard/starting image for WWDC 2013.

Seems like much of a coincidence to me; I like!

[EDIT]

So, I wonder if there'll be a stack which you tap, that then fans out into a launcher... like on OS X?

Looks like it will be a demo image on apple's website for the new homescreen, can't wait to see the keynote, this looks quite interesting

I just compared this to the actual WWDC logo, and there are a few differences, so this is an all new image. Good find!

The apps are stacked in a different order, and by the looks of the blur it looks like a frame for some kind of animation (probably for this folder/stacks idea).

Do not dismiss this. This is a good find.

Or something OP created (or someone else did) in 5 minutes with photoshop. I'm not buying that this has any significance with iOS or OSX, just a promo image.

I put it in the Google search by image thing, but it didn't show it anywhere on the Web. Interesting though. Looks like it might be what folders will look like on iOS 7. Now they might use the stack OS X aesthetics.
