Apple MacRumors has collected a few interesting quotes from people in the know about iOS 7. John Gruber: "What I've heard: iOS 7 is running behind, and engineers have been pulled from OS X 10.9 to work on it." It's going to be a "significant system-wide UI overhaul". It will apparently make people who love rich textures "sad". I honestly can't wait - I wonder what Apple's designers've got cooking for us.

When I See It

I'll believe it's a "significant system-wide UI overhaul" when I see it. It's not really in Apple's DNA to do "significant" updates to their UIs. The only one I can think of is OS9-OSX (I'm not counting initial introduction here). Taking out all the instances of skeuomorphism in the interface isn't really a UI overhaul, it's more like applying a new theme to the existing UI. I'm guessing that's what we'll see.

They won't pulled OS X engineers to accomplish just that sooner than later.

Or something is really wrong at Apple these days!
