iOS 7 new look, sharing features and iRadio music streaming all due tonight

Prepare yourself for Apple's World Wide Developers Conference 2013 with the latest on what to expect from iOS 7

Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference is kicking off at 6pm UK time this very day – and we expect to see a new iOS 7 unveiled. But what will that mean, we hear you cry? A new look, new sharing options and iRadio.

According to the Wall Street Journal's sources – "people involved in its development" – we can expect a flatter, skeumorphism-free OS with solid backgrounds and "more white space," thanks to Jony Ive's design influence. There will also be new ways to share photos and videos with other iPhones – we’re guessing via direct Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. And lastly, the much-talked-about iRadio music streaming service should be unveiled as a built-in extra for iOS 7.

Expect to see new hardware in the form of laptops along with a new version of OS X to go with them. Check back at 6pm BST for the full liveblog – and in the meantime, peruse our in-depth rundown of what to expect from WWDC 2013.
