It looks as though the iOS 7 team is in crunch time as WWDC approaches. According to an AllThingsD source, Apple is "borrowing" engineers from the OS X 10.9 team to work on iOS 7. If the rumors we've been hearing about iOS 7 come to fruition, it's not completely surprising they're in need of a few extra engineers.

iOS 7 is reportedly undergoing some massive UI tweaks and changes. Gone are the days of skeuomorphic design cues. Instead, we should be facing a flatter, more Jony Ive-style interface. According to one source, "Put it this way. You know Game Center's green felt craps table? Well, goodbye, Circus Circus."

 

We'll be reporting on all the changes in iOS 7 when it eventually makes its debut. Until then, what would you like to see in the new iOS 7?
