    Default iOS 7 Said to "Ship On Time" Despite Apple's Internal Delays


    According to a new report, although Apple is allegedly reassigning personnel to expedite development of iOS 7, the next-generation mobile operating system for the iPhone and iPad will still meet the company’s internal deadlines. The details are coming from anonymous sources who spoke with John Paczkowski from All Things D. The Cupertino California company’s current efforts to finish iOS 7 are “not as much of a fire drill” according to one source, which added that “It will ship on time.”

    Based on what Paczkowski was told, iOS 7 promises to be a “pretty big update” for Apple’s mobile operating system. Apple is said to be showing off iOS 7 at this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference, something the company has publicly confirmed. The recent report indicated the following:

    Evidently the spartan, elegant aesthetic that (head designer Jony) Ive has developed around Apple's hardware is now being brought to bear on its software, as well.
    The report pretty much reaffirmed much of what was mentioned in an earlier report originally released by Bloomberg, which revealed that Ive is overseeing “dramatic changes” to the iOS platform. Of the features pointed out were the native Calendar and Mail applications as items that may be seeing a significant shakeup. A target of Ive’s is said to be the “skeuomorphic” design embraced by his predecessor, Scott Forstall, who previously oversaw iOS development. Skeumorphism refers to design elements that are made to resemble real-life objects, such as the leather texture employed in Apple’s Find My Friends application.

    Sources from All Things D’s suggest that iOS 7 won’t be delayed like the previous report had mentioned. Apple typically makes a beta version of its next-generation operating system available to developers at WWDC, and ships the final software to users later in the year alongside the launch of the next-generation iPhone. John Gruber of Daring Fireball was the first to report that Apple was struggling to implement its planned changes in time for the launch of iOS 7. It was revealed that Apple had pulled OS X 10.9 engineers from their work to lend a hand in getting the mobile OS ready in time for its debut.

    Ultimately we’ll just have to wait and see what’s to come of the whole situation by being patient.

    are you aware of an operating system that had absolutely no bugs at all at launch?

    Hopefully that means jailbreaking opportunities. I miss the iPhone OS days when jailbreaks grew on trees.

    Same here... Hopefully some of the exploits they saved are still applicable too... I can't handle another six-month wait like that of iOS 6... That's the reason why I didn't get the iPhone 5... I had waited so freakin long, I figured I might as well wait for the 5S... But if it takes that long again, I might be stuck with my freakin 4S forever. Or, God forbid, I might have to jump ship to Android?! Oh the horror!

    If they have changed it a lot the exploits may have been burned but let's hope not!

    Fantastic news can't wait take it for a spin. Most recent bug estimates are approximately 10 poorly written calls per 1000 lines of instruction. No body is perfect and regardless of your programming experience theirs always a more efficient way of achieving the same result.
    If it's Jailed set it free...

    What if (and I'm being way to optimistic here) the final build ships at WWDC with the iPhone 5S released the same day, now that's something I'd love.

    And probably new ones will have been created. But you’re right. If the old exploits are patched, then we are probably looking at setting a new record for waiting for a jailbreak.

    I'm kind of afraid that's all they're going to do as well. I think it'll be more than that though, I bet Ive's and co have done some deeper changes to the OS.

    Do what I do, shop on Ebay - ask the seller what verson of ios they are running, some state, some don't. If they don't answer, keep looking.

    Yes, you will pay more than your subsidized upgrade at carrier, but you can find one on 6.1.2 or less if you look, then sell yours, especially if jailbroke the same way, you will come out about the same.

    I just did this, needed another Ipad 4 with 32gb, just looked, asked, and found one for sale, never activated so still on 6.0.1 (the initial release). I could care less about 6.1. somethings, so jailbroke it and running great.

    There is always a way, you don't have to wait years for them to catch up

    I do the same thing when buying or selling iDevices. I always ask because (especially at the current point in time) devices that can be jailbroken tend to fetch a higher price.

    I can't wait. I might take the loss of my JailBreak for iOS 7 if its really worth it and there is a workaround to get into the Betas again.

    There had better be more than a poorly copied version of Microsoft Metro in ios 7. Having used Google Now for a few days, I'm impressed with its fantastic functionality and clean bur innovative/intuitive design. WTF Apple, what happened?
