It looks like some people familiar with matters aren’t as familiar with matters as other people familiar with matters. Following weeks of reports detailing an exciting new look for Apple’s upcoming iOS 7 software, The Wall Street Journal finally chimed in on Sunday with a report of its own. Unfortunately, no new details were provided. Instead, The Journal claims to have confirmed that the next version of iOS will feature a new look that “abandons Apple’s longtime approach of designing icons and apps to resemble real-life objects, like address books and fabric, in favor of plain solid backgrounds and more white space.” The report also states that iOS 7 will feature new ways to share photos and videos as well as a new streaming music service set to debut on Monday. Finally, The Journal reiterated a dozen earlier reports that have stated Apple’s next flagship iPhone will launch this fall and will look just like the current model, in typical “S” fashion.
