AllThingsD reaffirms Apple is working on ‘deForstallization’ in iOS 7

We all know that iOS 7 will be awesome. AllThingsD confirms that.

AllThingsD’s John Paczkowski:

“Sources who declined to be named because they are forbidden to talk publicly about Apple’s plans tellAllThingsD that the company has been “borrowing” engineers from the OS X 10.9 team as part of an effort to double down on iOS 7.”

Paczkowski, who has been extremely accurate with Apple intel in recent years, likens the situation to the iPhone/Leopard scenario back in 2007. It’s been said that Steve Jobs pulled OS X 10.5 engineers to help the iPhone team hit its deadline.

And just as we’ve heard in previous reports from Bloomberg and other outlets, it sounds like the holdup has to do with a major redesign. It’s been said that Jony Ive, Apple’s new head of human interface, is really pushing for a flatter interface:

“I’ve heard similar descriptions from sources who say iOS 7 is iOS “de-glitzed.” “Put it this way,” said one source who’s been briefed on iOS. “You know Game Center’s green felt craps table? Well, goodbye Circus Circus.”

Not a surprise, really. With Scott Forstall — an advocate for flashy, skeumorphic designand its stiched-leather and faux wood grain flourishes — now gone from Apple, and Ive in an expanded role, the current and former Apple employees I’ve spoken to say iOS 7 was destined for a new coat of paint. As one said, “Sounds like a much-needed ‘deForstallization.’”

 

Apple announces WWDC 2013 for June 10-14, confirms iOS 7 and OS X 10.9 previews

Apple this morning officially announced that its annual developers conference will take place at Moscone West in San Francisco from Monday, June 10 until Friday, June 14. I know what you must be wondering: will the five-day conference serve as a launchpad for a next major revision to Apple’s iOS and OS X operating systems, right?

According to Apple’s marketing honcho Phil Schiller, that’s in fact in the cards. “Our developers have had the most prolific and profitable year ever, and we’re excited to show them the latest advances in software technologies and developer tools to help them create innovative new apps,” he was quoted as saying in a press release…

“We can’t wait to get new versions of iOS and OS X into their hands at WWDC,” reads the quote.

Apple also confirmed that folks unable to make it to WWDC 2013 can watch videos of developer sessions that will become available during the conference rather than a few weeks later, as was the case in years past.

Can’t make it to WWDC? We’ll be posting videos of all our sessions during the conference, so Registered Apple Developers can take advantage of great WWDC content.

According to the blurb, WWDC attendees will have a chance to get an in-depth look at what’s next in iOS and OS X, and learn how to take their apps “to the next level.”

Apple’s media release mentions the following conference topics:

• More than 100 technical sessions presented by Apple engineers on a wide range of topics for developing, deploying and integrating the latest iOS and OS X technologies;

• more than 1,000 Apple engineers supporting over 100 hands-on labs and events to provide developers with code-level assistance, insight into optimal development techniques and guidance on how they can make the most of iOS and OS X technologies in their apps;

• the latest innovations, features and capabilities of iOS and OS X, and how to enhance an app’s functionality, performance, quality and design;

• the opportunity to connect with thousands of fellow iOS and OS X developers from around the world—last year more than 60 countries were represented;

• engaging and inspirational lunchtime sessions with leading minds and influencers from the worlds of technology, science and entertainment; and

• Apple Design Awards which recognize iPhone, iPad and Mac apps that demonstrate technical excellence, innovation and outstanding design.

Apple confirmed WWDC tickets will go on sale tomorrow, Thursday, April 25, 2013 at 10am PDT via the WWDC web site. Only members of the iOS Developer Program, iOS Developer Enterprise Program or the Mac Developer Program can purchase the tickets.

Does it indicate a new app, a flattened iOS 7 interface or something completely different?

UPDATE: Apple begins seeding first OS X 10.8.4 beta to testers, developers

20130402-090500-am

Apple has begun seeding its next OS X Mountain Lion update, OS X 10.8.4, to AppleSeed testers. Apple will likely begin seeding this to registered OS X developers soon…

Apple does not specify what the update includes, but it is likely focused on bug fixes and performance improvements like most OS X maintenance releases. Apple asks developers to focus on WiFi, Graphics Drivers, and Safari.

UPDATE:It has now been released for registered developers.
