Daring Fireball's John Gruber has said that "all the leaks are wrong" about Apple's iOS 7, which is set to be unveiled at the WWDC keynote this evening.

In this week's episode of his The Talk Show podcast, Gruber said that, while he has heard very little from his connections inside Apple regarding the company's WWDC 2013 keynote, a source has told him that "all the leaks are wrong" about iOS 7.

"I know almost absolutely nothing," he said. "I don't think I've been this ignorant of what's coming, software-wise, for a keynote since the iPhone 1 back in 2007. Which is great I'm super excited."

"The one think I keep hearing over and over again from friends who would know is the one word I keep hear is that some of the stuff they're going to show is "polarising"," Gruber continued.

"And I also heard from somebody that just "all the leaks are wrong"," he added. "Which is interesting. I have no idea what to make of it."

It has been reported that iOS 7 will have a flatter, more minimalist design, an overhaul that has been led by Apple design guru Jony Ive. These rumours appear to have been backed up by Apple's iOS 7 and OS X banners that were put up at the WWDC 2013 venue on Friday.

We don't have long to wait to find out what's really been going on behind the scenes at Apple. CEO Tim Cook will take to the stage at 6pm UK time, and we'll be covering the news as it happens.
