While we all know Apple is in the process of launching its next iOS version, iOS 7 soon, details of how the iPhone or iPad operating system differs from the current version have been hard to come by. Thankfully, we now have a few inklings, with sources revealing to 9to5Mac the upcoming iOS 7 will come integrated with two social networks, Vimeo and Flickr. iPad and iPhone users as of now have to download both the applications from the Apple App Store though that won’t be needed any more once both the social networking applications become part of the iOS 7 package itself. Apple has already done the same with its Mac operating system in use on its notebook and laptop series.

It was this past year that Apple had decided against including Youtube application in iOS. Extending that favor to Vimeo will allow users easy access to what can be considered as a Youtube replacement. Users will be able to upload and share videos on Vimeo right from within iOS itself.
Similarly, with Flikr now being made a part of the iOS 7 platform itself, users of iPhone and iPad will be able to save and share photos from the iOS menu itself. iOS will also store the user credentials such as username and password so that users won’t have to type these each time they need to access Flickr. Yahoo!, the current owners of Flickr has just this week revamped the service which now includes a new user interface. The revamp will also allow the user to store 1 terabyte worth of photos.
Apple has it World Wide Developer Conference lined up next and many believe the new iOS 7 could be launched at the WWDC 2013 itself which kicks
