    Multi-panel multitasking? Like cards. That seems promising.

    "We see iOS 7 as defining an important new direction, and in many ways the beginning," Ive says. Video ends, and there's really, really huge applause.

    A very clean, nearly invisible look for the OS. Like panes of glass.

    Jony Ive stood up briefly and waved at everyone. A random "I love you," came out from a developer in the crowd.

    iOS 7 only happened because of collaboration between Craig Federighi and Ive to make it happen. So to walk us through it again is Federighi.
  • James Martin 6/10/2013 6:23:57 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:24:19 PM
    "On behalf of all of the engineers and designers who worked so hard to make today a reality, I'm thrilled to ake this opportunity to show you iOS 7," Federighi says.

    We start with the lockscreen, home screen, and apps, all of which "looks great," Federighi gushes. As you move the device it tracks your motion and creates a parallax field that gives you a sense of 3D.
  • James Martin 6/10/2013 6:25:18 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:25:40 PM
    We're getting quick looks at messages, calendar, phone and Game Center. "We just completely ran out of green felt," Federighi jabs again.
  • James Martin 6/10/2013 6:25:48 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:25:56 PM
    Basically every app has been redesigned. So we're getting a demo of it live.

    Federighi unlocks the phone and the icons float down -- not all at once. He fires up Weather, and we see some moving clouds on the screen. Looks a bit like Yahoo's recent Weather app revmap.

    It changes dynamically based on what place you're looking at. You can also pinch down, and you get an overview of your cities.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:27:37 PM
    Onto calendar. Can swipe from day to day. Just tons of white everywhere.
  • James Martin 6/10/2013 6:35:15 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/10/2013 6:35:26 PM
    Keeping the interface minimal bleeds the line between browser and app.
  • James Martin 6/10/2013 6:35:44 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:35:50 PM
    Federighi shows us some simple gestures to hop back and forth between pages, as well as the search. Now included: shared links from social places.

  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:36:47 PM
    No more 8 tab limit on tabs, says. Federighi hops through quite a few. These can also get ditched with a gesture. That's it for the Safari demo. Onto Control center.

    Control Center: nice that it's an across-the-board connection system for AirPlay and music/settings. Clean remote-like feel.
  • James Martin 6/10/2013 6:37:40 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:37:48 PM
    Federighi does a quick demo, turning on the flashlight, starting some music, hopping to another app and readjusting those same dials without having to start another app.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:38:27 PM
    "There's much much more," Federighi teases, including AirDrop, Apple's file sharing service.
  • James Martin 6/10/2013 6:38:34 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/10/2013 6:38:49 PM
    My, those friend circles are interesting.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:39:12 PM
    You can do this right from the share sheet. "You can do this from right where you are, you don't need to walk over and bump your phone," Federighi teases.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:39:25 PM
    Works on iPhone 5, iPad 4th gen, iPad mini
  • James Martin 6/10/2013 6:39:38 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/10/2013 6:39:44 PM
    So, I'm curious how across-the-board AirDrop will be. Could be amazing for events like these.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/10/2013 6:39:47 PM
    New camera stuff: live photo filters.
