With only a few hours till WWDC, it is the redesigned iOS 7 and Apple s rumored iRadio music streaming service, that have grabbed all the headlines. But in addition to the above, a report on WSJ now claims that the Cupertino-based company will introduce a new way to share photos and videos on iOS 7. Also Read - iPhone selling in LG stores? Apple is apparently in talks for a new deal
The report quotes a source as saying that iOS 7 will offer new ways for iPhone users to share photos and videos with each other. While this doesn t really answer the pet peeve users have when it comes to sharing multimedia content with devices running on other platforms, this could be a start to Apple finally opening up the platform to some extent.
Apple s design guru Jony Ive is leading the team behind iOS, which would ideally mean more cohesiveness between hardware and software. Earlier today, some design elements of iOS 7 were leaked that point at a flatter design with less of skeuomorphism and new icons. Apple will also unveil the new version of Mac OS X though little is known about the new features that will be introduced.
Apple CEO Tim Cook had last year said the company would double down on secrecy after a series of leaks revealed the iPhone 5 and iPad mini way in advance of Apple s official unveiling. Considering the scarce details we have for both iOS 7 and Mac OS X hours before WWDC, Cook has certainly delivered on his promise.
