Why do people think that WWDC 2013 logo means new UI for iOS 7?

    WWDC 2013
    WWDC 2012
    WWDC 2011

    Some say its colorful and looks like icons which could hint at an iOS revamp but WWDC 2012 logo was colorful and was made up of these squares too.

    Only thing that looks different is 1) No Apple logo 2) XIII instead of 13

    But lets be honest, people know is about Apple because it literally says 'Apple Worldwide Developer Conference' at the bottom and I think most people know the year is 2013.

    Also read this article for some good laughs.

    Most likely we'll see some changes to the UI for iOS (nothing to radical) but the logo is just Apple getting creative. Tbh there previous ones were basically either showing a ton of apps or an apple logo. Plus they need a good laugh at all those people ciphering the hidden code of the WWDC logo.

    As i understand it, the speculation around the WWDC 2013 logo being a iOS 7 hint is for two main reasons.
    - The change in font is an indicator of Ive's clean minimalist design, with text being brought to the forefront.
    - The stacked arrangement of the app squares represent the much rumored flat design that will be introduced.

    It's an interesting theory, but I'm of the opinion that the gray rectangle is an Apple TV sitting on top of Apps, which would suggest that it's finally getting an App Store. It's not really clear if these WWDC logos actually represent anything though or if its just people reading to far into the images.

    Looks like an iPod Touch to me. No earpiece for audio.

    ----------

    Because the last five or so WWDCs have announced new versions of iOS.

    Are you seriously suggesting that they are alike? Can't you see that there is a huge change in the logo this year?

    No Apple Logo
    Different Font
    Use of Roman Numerals
    Not on the gradient background
    Different 'base' colour

    It couldn't be more different if it tried.

    I can't work out what this image has to do with multi-coloured iPhones? :confused:

    I'm not saying this is any indication either, but I noticed today that hovering over the buttons in the top bar of Apple's website now reveals blue bars around the selection. Just thought I'd share along the whole 'colors' theme, probably meaningless though.

    We go through this imaginary guessing game every year.

    Seems the fertile & very vivid imaginations run wild at the mere sight of any banner, graphic, color, or font style.

    Doting on every bit of minutia, how this excites some is incredibly entertaining. :eek:

    Looks like the dimensions of a watch face and then you add in the font. They look very roman numeral to me.

    Which is what I'm saying. Every year new iOS gets released and no major. UI changes.

    ----------

    Yes but what does the logo have anything to do with Apple's design on their products?

    Look at the analysis threads for last years. Different color icons stacked together forming the Apple logo...definitely a UI redesign.

    So if something has always been a certain way that means it will stay that ea forever? What exactly did Cook put Ive in charge of Human Interface for then?

    You don't think that firing the guy in charge of iOS might result in some slight differences from past years?

    No, that's what I think. Ive being in charge of HI and Hair Force One being in charge of OS X and iOS software clearly means some changes.

    But hypothesizing that apple's wwdc logo has some radical da vinci code type secret code to be cracked just seems a little silly.

    When did Apple's WWDC logo design imply new design changes?

    I never said it did. All I said is that the logo this year is drastically different from those of previous years.

    I don't think many people have implied that the WWDC logo has a major ulterior meaning. The thing is that its quite radically different from the previous logos so that in turn may give an idea that apples OS design might be quite different.

    Tim Cook explicitly said on the earnings call that there would be both a new version of OS X and a new version of iOS.

    Looks like a World War in D.C. is on the cards.

    The Roman numerals are obviously referring to the new "Superbowl Coverage" updates added to the notification center. Noobs. ;)

    Because the invite says to come see what they have for iOS and OS X. Did you read it?

    The logo is still there just missing the leaf.

    Edit: adding as new as it looks it does, in design terms, seem as much like an evolution of the graphics as previous years.
