iOS 7 Development: It is safe to say that a company the size of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is familiar with how to deal with delays. After all, the Cupertino-based tech giant has faced supply chain issues in the past. This time around, it appears that the problem could be related to a delay with the company’s much anticipated iOS 7 upgrade.
While Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has not led anybody to believe that there is trouble, rumors are beginning to circulate that a delay could be holding things back.
According to CNET, “the latest chatter suggests that Apple is running behind schedule in its development of iOS 7 but that the software will have a whole new display.”
If this is not enough for you to think about, take a closer look at what John Gruber of Daring Fireball had to say:
“What I’ve heard: iOS 7 is running behind, and engineers have been pulled from OS X 10.9 to work on it.”
If this is true, it appears that the company is making some internal moves to get back up to speed. Of course, there is no way of saying for sure if this will be enough to get back on schedule.
Gruber added some more information pertaining to possible upgrades (and the secrecy of Apple) to the new operating system:
“Word on the street is that iOS engineers with carry privileges all have some sort of polarizing filter on their iPhone displays, such that it greatly decreases viewing angles, thus making it difficult for observers to see the apparently rather significant systemwide UI overhaul.”
It is widely believed that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has been working on iOS 7 since the beginning of the year, however, the company has yet to discuss this and there is no real information on when this launch could take place.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is actually the smart money’s second favorite publicly traded company but hedge funds have started dumping Apple in favor of a surprising financial stock (see which stock hedge funds are buying like crazy). While retail investors aren’t sure if it’s growth, income, or value that will drive shares forward, it’s likely that one of these factors can make the difference, and product releases have historically been the best growth driver, so bulls can rejoice.
