WWDC Banner Confirms iOS 6 Announcement

    Instagram user Zac Altman has posted a photo showing a new banner going up at the Moscone West convention center confirming that Apple will be unveiling iOS 6 at next Monday's keynote address.


    iOS 6 has been assumed to be a major topic of discussion for the event, but Apple has so far mentioned only that it will discuss the "future of iOS" at the event. The banner also displays a silver-colored theme that has been rumored to making its way to the iPhone to replace the blue theme present in many of Apple's apps. The silver theme has already been showing up on the iPad, but rumors of an Apple mapping app have suggested that the silver theme will moving to the smaller screen as well.

    With Apple having dropped numbering and other descriptors from its latest model of the iPad earlier this year, there has been speculation that the company may follow suit with other products such as the iPhone. Today's banner indicates that the company will at least continue marketing iOS using its version number.

    Update: A clear shot from CNet:

    I really don't think any of us needed confirmation that iOS 6 would be discussed.

    why the hell would people expect the numbering system to be dropped from iOS? frequent updates/builds make it necessary for operating systems to be numbered....

    There's something weird about that photo. where was it taken from ? It looks like the street and the glass seem to meld.
  9. macrumors 603


    I can't wait to get Beta 1 on my iPhone 4S next week. It seems like every year, Beta 1's have less and less bugs in them.
  10. macrumors 603


    Not the new iOS? How about iOS 5S?

    the 6 on that logo looks like it was made with liquid metal!

    also, am i the only one who can see right through that street pole?

    Looks like the banner has a slogan with it, does anyone know what that says?

    Personally I'm really excited for Monday.

    Its a filter--hence Instagram.
  14. macrumors 6502

    Yup. With that logic, OS X shouldn't be numbered because Macs aren't numbered.

    It was taken with the camera up near the glass so it's reflecting onto the street decor.

    Guess I'll need to cancel any appointments from 1PM-3PM :apple:

    Mr. Retrofire

    Nice Photoshop work!

    You are confusing software with hardware.

    This fall? The iPhone is coming sooner then fall son. July/August at the latest. Last years delay was a fluke.

    Ok so what are the expectations for iOS 6 besides new map app and Facebook integration?
  21. macrumors regular

    Can't wait to see what ios6 will bring!

    If Apple introduces any of the quick texting features that BiteSMS provides, I wouldn't really need to jailbreak. Perhaps Apple will have finally found a solution that pleases their standards that won't require us to switch apps just to quickly send or respond to texts.

    Too bad I'll be on a flight back to the US while the main presentation is happening =( Hopefully there's wifi available on the flight!

    iOS6 needs to have widgets. A homescreen of just squares is too boring and limiting.
  23. macrumors G5


    Then what big item do they have for the fall quarter?
  24. macrumors demi-god


    Looks like from inside a shop across the street from the banners.

    Monday should be exciting! :)
