The rumor mill now provides the latest chatter as to how Apple is trying to render an overhaul to most of its apps, whether through integrating them with iOS 6 platform, or through redesigned front-ends. In corroborating iDB’s scoop, apart from rendering an overhaul in iOS 6 to all the Apple apps which are shipped with iOS software, the WWDC is likely to announce redesigned tools for App store, iTunes store, and iBookstore. In fact, the redesigning front-ends is said to provide a sexier silver appearance, by its revamped new look.
At 9to5Mac, blogger Mark Gurman confirms that Apple overhauls are going to be major, focusing on improved interactivity in making purchases from iBookstore, iTunes store, and App store. Gurman further suggests that Apple is constantly engaged in planning complimentary store redesigns for computers in later part of 2012. As per Gurman, enhancing social status and interactivity will certainly be a major part of Apple store overhauls.
More rumors embroil Apple, as MG Siegler of TechCrunch reported that a system-wide Facebook integration is being readied to feature in the new iOS 6, so as to enable sharing content in Facebook with better efficacy, and without the need of friends ever leaving their apps.
Apple, however, is expected to leave discoverability on Chomp’s app search and discovery platform. In other words, for all issues pertaining to content discoverability, Apple will rely upon Chomp, which it acquired for an undisclosed sum in February. Likewise, it has always been iPhone maker’s normal working pattern to acquire or hire smaller companies for enhancing engineering talent or technology. Gurman reiterates that unfortunately the WWDC keynote June 11, will not carry the agenda of discussing better discoverability.
