The mockup was made by 9to5Mac (see all mockups here). It reports, “I’ve been given a quick peek at an early beta of iOS7 and can only describe what I’ve seen. I’m told I can’t post the screenshots because Apple embeds little watermarks that could land the source in some trouble.”
Talking about the software, the site says, “At the top, instead of carrier signal bars, Apple now has 5 dots that are white or gray to represent the signal.
“The app icons are different across the board, similar but not quite the same as the one we tweeted earlier.” See it on Twitter here.
The site adds, “Perhaps most interesting: There are two color schemes for many of these apps – one black-ish and one white-ish. We’re not sure if they are A/B decoys, if white iPhones and Black iPhones will have their own color schemes or as someone else suggested, the different color schemes might be invoked by the amount of ambient light or the time of day. But it is super-interesting, especially since we’ve heard whispers that the whole UI might shift slightly based on external factors similar to the way the music volume icon switches based on how you hold the iPhone.”
