'Dramatic changes' in iOS 7 risk putting Apple behind schedule, report says

Ashleigh Allsopp | May 3, 2013
Apple design chief Jony Ive could be risking a delay for iOS 7 in order introduce a complete user interface overhaul to the software that includes "dramatic changes," reports say.

Apple's next iPhone could also be getting a better FaceTime camera, thanks to the new Omnivision sensor that, despite being just 5mm by 5mm by 3.5mm in size, boasts a 1080p sensor, video recording at 60 frames per second, and an impressive dynamic range that could be used to boost the front-facing camera on the iPhone, reports Engadget.

Earlier this week, 9To5Mac published allegedly leaked details about iOS 7, claiming that the software will be 'very, very flat,' with redesigned Apple app icons and more. You can read more about those details here.

It's pretty certain that we'll be getting our first official glimpse at iOS 7 at WWDC 2013, which kicks off on 10 June. SEE: Decoding Apple' WWDC 2013 logo: what does it mean?

In a press release sent out last week, Apple revealed that developers will "learn about the future of iOS and OS X."

Tickets for WWDC 2013 sold out in a record-breaking 2 minutes when they went on sale on Thursday. SEE: Apple is growing; why not WWDC?

WWDC 2012 saw the launch of iOS 6, new MacBooks and OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. You can find more about last year's event here.
