WWDC 2012 Banner Confirms Apple Will Unveil iOS 6; Switch to Silver-Colored Theme [Updated]

If you were worried that Apple will name their next generation mobile operating system “the new iOS” like the new iPad, then you can relax, as the new banner going up at the Moscone West convention center confirms that Apple will be unveiling the next version of iOS at the WWDC Keynote on Monday and will be calling it iOS 6.

Though we had assumed that Apple to call it iOS 6, it wasn’t confirmed as Apple had mentioned in the WWDC 2012 media invites that the event was to discuss the “future of iOS”.

Apple has just put up a banner with the iOS 6 logo. The banner also displays a silver-colored theme, which seems to confirm that Apple will be replacing the blue-colored theme in iOS apps with a silver-colored theme, as we had speculated earlier.

You can check out the image of the WWDC 2011 app (left) with the blue-colored theme and WWDC 2012 app (right) with the silver-colored theme to get an idea.

The WWDC 2012 app is not the only app that sports the silver color scheme. iPhoto app released back in March and a number of pre-installed iPad apps such as YouTube, Maps and Mail app sport the silver color scheme.

Update:

CNET has a better photo of the iOS 6 banner:

And if you look closer at the background of the iOS 6 logo, it is water ripples. We’re not sure what that signifies. Any guesses?
