    The highly credible Jon Gruber at Daring Fireball has posted some very interesting “scuttlebutt,†as he calls it, about iOS 7. After referring to a post on Branch.com that talks about Apple starting iPhone 5S production this quarter as “smartâ€, Gruber goes on to contribute two “nuggets†of news of his own. Firstly, he says that he has heard that iOS 7 is behind schedule, so much so, in fact, that engineers have been pulled from working on OS X 10.9 so that they can work on iOS 7 and get it back on schedule. Secondly, Gruber says that he has heard that iOS engineers that have “carry privileges†(i.e. actually get to handle and use iPhones with the new iOS 7 installed) have polarizing filters fitted to their iPhone displays that limited the angle at which the displays can be viewed, and thus prevent any prying eyes, or cameras, from getting a peek of the “rather significant system-wide UI overhaul.†iOS 7 will be the first iOS that has been designed with Jony Ive in control, and speaking of this, Gruber seconds Rene Ritchie’s view that, “Ive’s work is apparently making many people really happy, but will also apparently make rich-texture-loving designers sad.â€[/FONT]
