Apple unveils minimalist iOS 7 banner at WWDC site Moscone West

“It’s been three days since Apple started decorating Moscone West with WWDC 2013 banners, and today the company has started publicly showing off new signage hinting at the next iteration of iOS, iOS 7,” Federico Viticci reports for MacStories.

“Using a very simple layout compared to last year, Apple is simply saying ‘7’ on the banner that’s being put up at Moscone West right now,” Viticci reports. “Tim Cook himself confirmed at D11 that Jony Ive, now head of the Human Interface Group at Apple, has been working on a new “look and feel” for iOS.”

    1. I just hope it means we can draw!

      To me the background looks like a canvas and thus iOS might include stylus support. The thin font of the “7” plus the “WWDC” could represent the precision of an Apple stylus. Plus the tag line of “a whole new world developing” meaning apps that can accept pen input.

      I know there may be a lot of other features deemed more important, but one day pen input has to come to iOS.

        1. Hell I’d settle for MacDraw for Mountain Lion. Even Windows ships with a free basic paint tool, whereas the Mac, touted for graphics design, lets people get started with… what?

  1. The background looks to me like the front grill of the Mac Pro – Maybe a new model, finally, and/or maybe some new changes to tie iOS 7 and OS X 10.9 even closer together?

    1. Hate to tell you kids, but that is just a cheap terrycloth pattern. It says to me: ‘iOS 7, the quicker picker upper’, which of course makes no sense. Monday is just 3 days away, more data shall be forthcoming…

  2. looks thin not flat
    looks sexy not crappy
    very minimal and no animal
    so straight to the point this 7 and X

    the genius communicates on a level beyond heaven
