    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.

    I hope there isn't a leak.

    Leaks completely ruined the surprise factor in iOS 6.

    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").

    My guess is, if you want to see what iOS7 will look like, turn on your phone and flip around a bit.

    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!

    Quite the optimist, hoping Apple isn't going to follow Microsoft and Google down the flat trend.

    We might see something a day or two before the official announcement. That's all we can hope for...

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