    9to5Mac reports that it has "been given a quick peek" at an early beta version of iOS 7, and while the report's source would not allow screenshots to be posted, 9to5Mac is able to share a description of the new design and has created a mockup (at right) highlighting some of the main features. Among the details:

    - Skinny font as seen on the iOS 7 banner at WWDC.

    - Carrier signal in status bar changed to five white/gray dots instead of bars.

    - Flatter icons, in many cases also redesigned.

    - Separate black and white themes for each app, although it is unclear how they will be implemented.
    - Walking directions in Maps.

    - "Share" menu now scrolls sideways with one row dedicated to AirDrop sharing to other devices and a second row dedicated to services such as Facebook, Twitter, and the rumored Flickr and Vimeo integration. A third row supports system functions like print, copy, and "use as wallpaper".

    Apple will be showing off iOS 7, as well as OS X 10.9, at its Worldwide Developers Conference keynote scheduled for later today. While the company should begin seeding versions of iOS 7 to developers today, a public launch is not expected until later this year alongside new iPhone hardware.

    I'm not sure I like what I'm seeing but I'll withhold my judgement until the keynote

    Looks like a 99cent jailbreak theme.

    Agreed; that mock up looks a bit goofy to me. Let's see what happens later today.

    I bet that's hardly a realistic mockup.

    agreed. 9to5shills have a liking for littering their front page with ugly and pointless concepts just to get hits from google and sell junk merchandise from shady sites.

    that mockup is dead ugly. I sincerely hope there´s something better than that. At least the banners around moscone center seems more promising.

    Dear Apple,

    This is what we don't want iOS 7 to look like.

    Regards,
    Your Loyal Customers

    The mock up is horrible. I can only hope the actual look is better.

    Really liking the idea of the black or "night mode"
    iUse it alot in iBooks with the white on black and find myself "replicating" the idea in safari and messages when using my phone in a dark room-
    iDo this by toggling the "invert colours" option

    As a result iHave less bright whites on screen and personally find it alot easier on the eyes- esp when the room is really dark

    Overall prefer white text on black back so yea :) id appreciate that little feature- especially if it worked with the ambient light sensor

    I hope it's not totally true, at least the icons.

    Oh no, the icon looks not so good. It reminds me the average quality of Android...
