Has anyone else seen this article by the staff over at iDownloadBlog? The grainy picture seems pretty realistic of what Apple might be doing for iOS 7. Here is the link: http://bit.ly/17hBcJc

Fire away with your thoughts

[Update]: 9to5mac tweeted that this could possibly be a photo from a leaked early ALPHA version of iOS 7:

iDownloadblog has gotten hold of a very blurry screenshot taken of an iPhone they claim is running iOS 7 and have recreated the icons using the screenshot as best they could.

http://www.idownloadblog.com/2013/06/02/unified-ios-7-icons/

Probably fake, but thought I'd share anyway.

If it is fake...which there is a high chance of it being fake...they did a good job keeping it in line with what people think its going to look like.

The excitement continues. Thanks for the share.

It looks like its supposed to be a screen shot of a legit phone but then why not just screenshot the actual phone etc.

That said, we'll know in a week but I'm not going to be shocked if they look basically the same as they do now but without the gradient backgrounds.

That first "screenshot" seems to be more than out of proportion and proper angles.

Could be new "swipe" to the left effect to get to spotlight or widgets. :eek:

Same thing happened last year with maps remember? BGR got a picture of the phone running the new maps, not an actual screenshot.

Looks really wonky though. What's stopping someone from loading a Winterboard theme they made?

Fake me thinks! If Apple was removing the over the top skewmorphism then why is newsstand as ugly as ever?

True. It does look similar to iMIUI

I wouldn't be surprised if Apple stole this idea from the jailbreak community. It wouldn't be the first time either: Notification Center, wireless syncing, lockscreen notifications, volume button used as shutter for camera, etc.

That looked horrible. But we said the same thing about the leaked iPhone 4/5...

I hope this is real. The Camera, Messages and Music icon look fantastic. The only negative is the continuation of the sunflower Photos icon, and that Newsstand is still alive.

Does anyone else think the Game Centre icon looks like a gold coin going into a slot? Than again, maybe it's a gold medal, but I don't know what that black blob could be.

9to5mac say this is an early alpha & lots has changed since then.

IF this is legit, I think what we're looking at is a photo of a photo of an iPhone running the software. At first glance I was confused also but if you imagine someone sneaking a quick photo, showing it to someone... Once this process repeats a couple of times it kind of makes sense.

And IF this is legit, I quite like it. Its subtle and easy on the eye.
I've said before that Apple will still want a recognisable OS. Yes, they'll make some changes but not completely changing everything.
