Apple is going to unveil its next major mobile OS installment dubbed iOS 7 at WWDC in June. Many of the tech blogs have started seeing a spike in web traffic from the devices running the unreleased iOS 7 firmware, hinting at an increased internal rollout/testing.
Onswipe, a mobile site conversion firm, has noticed that iOS 7 traffic spikes across a bunch of web sites that incorporate its solutions over the past week or so. According to TechCrunch:
Over the past week, Onswipe found a significant bump in the number of visits from iOS 7 iPhones and iPads, specifically located in both Cupertino and San Francisco. SF had the most iOS 7 visits, with 18.75 percent, and Cupertino accounted for 17.9 percent of the total. May 2 saw the highest iOS 7 traffic to date, representing 23 percent, or nearly a quarter, of all unique iOS visitors to Onswipe-enabled sites. Most were visiting from iPhones (75 percent), but iPads also represented a full quarter of visits.
MacRumors, TNW and Macstories have seen a similar spike in traffic:
Apple will be giving a detailed preview of iOS 7 during WWDC on June 10th. Usually a developers preview of the latest iOS for registered developers is also made available, allowing them to ready their apps to take advantage of new features and improvements in the latest iOS version.
iOS 7 is speculated to bring all new, flat interface, a new internet based service, possibly related to music streaming, and “killer app.”.
