While Apple gave the world a glimpse of what is to come with iOS 7 at WWDC 2013, the company chose not to reveal how iOS 7 will look on the iPad. Fortunately, it looks like some developers with access to a dev account with Apple have decided to take matters into their own hands, and as a result – we now have the first preview screenshots to show you, giving you an exact look at how Apple’s colorful new user interface will look on a bigger screen.
We have to say that it’s very nice as well. Jony Ive’s input on the iPhone is also going to transfer very nicely to the 9.7-inch iPad, as you’ll see for yourself in this early gallery of images. iOS 7 is not due for an official release until Fall 2013 of course, but the guys over at SonnyDickson have managed to tweak the iOS simulator to allow support for the new iOS 7 update.
If you proceed to this German website, you’ll be able to see a collection of images, which show how iOS 7 looks within areas such as the notification center, contacts, the new iOS 7 Game Center, Maps, the settings menu and the new look Safari on iOS 7 as well. It is this kind of wizardry that users will appreciate a lot, especially with Apple making consumers wait until September or even October for the full update.

It’s usually a painful wait as well, especially since those with a developer account are already running iOS 7 on their iPhone 5 devices right now. The iPad Control Center on iOS 7 is going to come in very useful we feel once users have the update and now you can see an early preview here of what it will look like.
If you are eager to see more of iOS 7 running on the iPad, it may be a good idea to keep an eye on the SonnyDickson Twitter account in case further screenshots are revealed in the days to come. The big question: Do you think iOS 7 suits the bigger screen or mobile devices?
