In a new chat with Branch.com, Daring Fireball's guru extraordinaire Jon Gruber shares a few of the tidbits that he's heard from insider sources about the upcoming iOS 7. What's he say?

What I've heard: iOS 7 is running behind, and engineers have been pulled from OS X 10.9 to work on it. (Let me know if you've heard this song before. tuaw.com)

Regarding Ive: 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 system-wide UI overhaul.

Amongst other tidbits, multiple insiders are speculating about an April event to introduce a new iPad.

We reported late last week that Japanese website MacFan revealed morning that Apple will unveil the iPhone 5S on Thursday, June 20th at a typically splashy Apple event and that the device will then go on sale in July. This would match the release schedule for iPhone 3G, 3GS and 4, but not the fall release schedule of the 4S or 5.

Today, the Wall Street Journal has jumped onto the same bandwagon, noting that "Apple Inc. plans to begin production of a new iPhone similar in size and shape to its current one in the second quarter of the year, according to people familiar with the device's production, teeing up a possible summer launch for the next version of its flagship device.
