iOS 7 to be 'very, very flat,' with redesigned Apple app icons and more, report says

A new report suggests iOS 7's major user interface changes will appeal to new users but may be 'unsettling' for old-timers

Apple has applied for a patent concerning a system of '3D position tracking for panoramic imagery navigation', prompting analysts and Apple fans to speculate that iOS 7 will see Apple's Maps application get a feature to rival Google's Street View.

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. 

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. 

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.

In a similar report on Monday, 9To5Mac also published allegedly leaked details of Mac OS X 10.9, which could bring new power-user features and 'core' iOS elements to the Mac.
