iOS 7 For iPad Leaks with New Keyboard, Settings Panel

What will iOS 7 for iPad look like? We’ve only been treated to a beta version for the iPhone for now, but several screenshots for the new operating system on the iPad have leaked.

We can see that it has a lot of similarities: the new redesigned icons are intact, as is the quick settings shade that raises up from the bottom with a swipe. The layout of the controls are different, however, to take advantage of the larger screen on an iPad. Music controls are to the left of the settings for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, AirDrop and more, and the flashlight and screen brightness controls are on the left side. The weird thing? The iPad doesn’t yet have a flash, so it’s weird that the controls are there. Perhaps Apple’s next-generation iPad will add that feature.

The shots are from an iOS 7 iPad emulator that runs Xcode 5, a reader told 9to5Mac. In order to test it out, developer can try copying:

Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/
Platforms/iPhoneSimulator.platform/Developer/
Applications/iPhone Simulator.app/Contents/
Resources/Devices/iPad (Retina).deviceinfo

To the following folder:

/Applications/Xcode5-DP.app/Contents/Developer/
Platforms/iPhoneSimulator.platform/Developer/
Library/PrivateFrameworks/SimulatorHost.framework/
Versions/A/Resources/Devices

As always you should do this at your own risk.
