    Apple is holding its developer conference (WWDC) in approximately two weeks. WWDC is roughly analogous to the Google I/O that concluded a few weeks ago. According to the WWDC website, we will be able to get an in-depth look at what to expect next in both iOS as well as OS X and developers will be shown how to take their apps "to the next level". It's really an impressive shindig with over 100 sessions, hands-on labs, events, and even the opportunity to connect with Apple engineers and fellow developers -- and Google may be laying in wait to steal Apple's thunder with Android 4.3. As ...

    From everything we've heard, Apple's iOS 7 is set to be the Jonathan Ive Show, with the designer tearing into the skeuomorphic-heavy look we've been familiar with. Reports have again and again reiterated a focus on a clean "flat" look for the platform, and today we get a few new details about what in specific will be changing. Beyond just a flat, light-on-textures look for the OS, Ive may also be leading the march towards a more monochromatic, black-and-white look to pervade. Changes start on the lock screen, with a simpler design eschewing some of the shininess you'll see now, as well as ...

    Google I/O may be over and done with, but San Francisco's Mocone Center won't get much of a reprieve before smartphone fans are back in hordes, with Apple taking over the same venue in just a few weeks for the Worldwide Developers Conference 2013. The whole thing is a grand affair, running from June 10 through June 14, but where's the actual meat – when can we expect to get word of what's next for the iOS world? With WWDC tickets set to go up for sale tomorrow, Apple has now revealed that the event's big keynote address will take place that first day, on Monday June 10. That's hardly ...

    We've been talking about streaming music services from Google and Apple for what seems like forever. Google's All Access finally went official earlier this week, while Apple has yet to announce its own offering. Rumors have suggested that it, too, could be nearly ready to launch, and that news might just arrive at this year's WWDC. However, a new report suggests that Apple has yet to secure the licenses it needs, and such an announcement is still some time off. This is a tale we've heard before: Apple struggling to get license-holders on board with its design for a streaming music service. ...

    It's sounding likely that this year's WWDC could bring news, not of any number of new iPhone or iPad designs, but of iOS 7. With Jonathan Ive leading the charge for what's been called a new "flat design," this could really be quite the shake-up for the platform. As we wait for confirmation of the release, some new rumors and comments continue to paint the picture of some major changes for the platform. This talk of a "flat" look has centered on doing away with some of the cutesy skeuomorphisms that pervade the OS. But just how plain-looking could this refresh take things? Well, Windows ...
