Since Apple unveiled iOS 7 beta for developers, we have been hearing about quite a few new features that might come when the OS is released to the masses later in the year. The latest is a couple of code lines in the OS, spotted by the folks at 9To5Mac, that point at a possible integration of LinkedIn into the OS, much like how iOS integrates Facebook and Twitter.
iOS 7 might include a single-sign-on system for LinkedIn accounts and also add the ability for users to share posts using a share-sheet or through iOS apps. This isn t the first time we are hearing of such integration, as during the WWDC 2013 keynote, Apple announced that LinkedIn was integrated into OS X Mavericks, allowing single sign-in, sharing from Safari and Notification Center-based alerts.
The report though mentions that the code is incomplete and hence cannot be used in its current form in the beta release. This makes it difficult to guess if the LinkedIn integration might make it to the final OS release or get dropped after initial testing.
