Some details about iOS 7 have reportedly been leaked by 9to5Mac ahead of its debut at WWDC 2013. The new mobile operating system is codenamed 'Innsbruck', three sources tell the site, and as rumored it will feature a flat design.

The new interface is said to be “very, very flat,” according to one source. Another person said that the interface loses all signs of gloss, shine, and skeumorphism seen across current and past versions of iOS. Another source framed the new OS as having a level of “flatness” approaching recent releases of Microsoft’s Windows Phone “Metro” UI.

While the look will change, iOS 7 will reportedly remain be easy to use and there is no learning curve for existing users. System apps and functions apparently work similar to how they do now.

The interface changes include an all-new icon set for Apple’s native apps in addition to newly designed tool bars, tab bars, and other fundamental interface features across the system.

Apple is also said to working on a way to add more 'glance-able' information and system options panels. It's unclear how these new views would be implemented; however, one option discussed was to make them appear via swipes from the left and right side of the device similar to how the Notification Center drops down when swiping from the top.

Earlier today, the site also detailed some information about Apple's update to OS X.

But not only to the high price of the iPhone 5C triggers resentment. Many complain that there were no surprises. "Well done, Apple rumor mill. Everything correctly guess in terms of technology. There is an iphone 5s huffingtonpost and an iPhone 5C - two iPhones that were presented at the same time, http://www.myefox.pl/popular/iphone-5s-huffington-post-.html, for the first time in six years iPhone history. There is a fingerprint sensor and the iPhone in gold, everything as expected, "writes Mashable.

I really have high hopes for this, hearing the comparison to metro ui and knowing Jony Ives is in charge of this project and knowing what he likes I am really really very excited to see what he does and his interpretation of a flat interface with heavy information at a glance... I'm also very excited as I'm sure this new UI is going to add many many new system hooks so alot of wonderful new Cydia themes and tweaks will be able to be made

So far, the detached iPhone was subsequently offered at a lower price, this policy is now set. The Model 5 will not offer, it said Cook. It disappears from stores, only the iphone 5s premiera w Polsce continues to be held in treasury, http://www.myefox.pl/popular/iphone-5s-premiera-w-polsce-.html, when signing a mobile phone contract, there are the 4S for free.

why does sales person use the word "iPhone* to sell Samsung/HTC. "this is iPhone killer" "This phone is way better than iPhone" "Galaxy s4 have more features than iPhone" "HTC One left iPhone behind"

I don't think so, the HTC one is too big I don't like the design it has shitty sound and the only interesting feature it had It's heavy reliance on swipe gesturing turned out to be a huge gimmick that the majority of people turn off
