Announcement happening at WWDC 2017

On Tuesday morning,  Bloomberg dropped a new article filled with scoops on Apple’s next generation iPhones.

Located near the end of the post was a small mention about the next version of iOS, what Bloomberg was told would be called, “iOS 11.” It’s important to note that Bloomberg–more specifically Mark Gurman–has an incredible track record when it comes to nailing Apple intel down; Apple should be sticking with its traditional naming convention for 2017’s major mobile software release.

In addition to new iPhone models running iOS 11, Bloomberg says that iOS 11, “will include a refreshed user-interface.” While no further detail is given, one can only hope that this indicates a major change for how the software looks and feels.

The last major UI change came with iOS 7, and for a quick refresher on how the very first beta looked and performed, check out the video above. It’s not explicitly mentioned that we’ll be seeing something as radical as this with iOS 11, but a large design upgrade four years following iOS 7 is definitely realistic. And exciting.

The new software is said to be announced at WWDC 2017 on June 5th, alongside new versions of macOS, watchOS and tvOS. The event is just around the corner, and expectations are high. Stay tuned for more on the next generation of iOS.
