Although many key details pertaining to Apple's forthcoming iOS 7 remain under wraps, one seemingly certain alteration will be the removal of the skeuomorphic elements that have been a hallmark of the fruit company's mobile operating system from the get-go. Jony Ive is said to be heavily involved in revamping the look and feel of iOS this time around, and with former iOS Senior Vice President Scott Forstall now out of the picture, the Cupertino's lead hardware designer now has free reign on the software side of things, too.
