The next version of Apple's mobile operating system may feature a simpler user interface now that Jony Ive, the company's hardware design guru, is leading the team that is designing the way the software should look. Although the changes to the look of iOS 7 are expected to be "pretty conservative," the Apple operating system may start moving toward a more "flat design" that the Wall Street Journal reports would be "starker and simpler.

Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference, where the company typically showcases the next versions of its mobile and Mac operating systems, has been set for June 10-14. At the conference, Apple is expected to unveil the next generation operating system for the iPhone and the iPad, iOS 7, as well as the next version of its Mac computers' operating system, which could be called Mac OS X 10.9. From time to time, Apple also uses WWDC to introduce users to new products. Last year, Apple announced the MacBook Pro with Retina display, a high-end laptop with an ultra-high resolution display, and in 2010, the company used the conference to announce the iPhone 4. There's no word yet on what, if anything, Apple may announce this year.

Now that time has finally been cut, but sadly, it's just a slight improvement of one week. MacRumors reported the improvement late last night, saying the change was first seen in Apple's Asia-Pacific market.

It took only two minutes for app developers to buy every last $1,600 ticket to Apple's annual conference when they went on sale Thursday morning. Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference has sold out every year going back to 2008, but this year tickets sold out faster than ever before even though the company gave developers only one day of notice before they went on sale. About 5,000 people usually attend the conference. Tickets sold out so quickly it prompted a few users to joke that Apple should follow in the footsteps of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and hold the conference twice on separate weeks. Wouldn't mind if Apple took a page from Coachella's book and made WWDC two separate weeks.
