Indeed it is. Question is why would you casually go through your image cache?
Trying to work out where I was earlier, as I cleared my web history... :(

That's a standard promotional image for WWDC 2013. Nothing fancy.
... but the filename has "springboard" in it...

I've not seen it elsewhere, have you?

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! :D

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 found this in my Chrome image cache... but what IS it? :confused: :eek:

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