'The Latest Apple Scuttlebutt'

Generally, I shy away from posting about rumors here, but I couldn’t pass up this time. Here’s a link to a juicy thread on Branch involving John Gruber, MG Siegler, Rene Ritchie, et al, who discuss the latest word on the Cupertino street. Lots of talk about iOS 7 and a new, full-sized iPad.

A couple things that I found particularly interesting:

  • iOS 7 is running behind schedule, with engineers being pulled from OS X 10.9 to work on it.
  • iOS 7, under the guidance of Jony Ive, is purportedly getting a pretty major overhaul, UI-wise.

As for the next event, I say sometime this month or next. Waiting half the year for the first event (WWDC, in June) doesn’t seem right. Apple’s not going to wait so long into the year to make noise.
