9to5mac’s Seth Weintraub got a peek at what early beta of iOS 7 looked like and they have posted some photoshopped pictures showing what the new application icons and UI looks like in iOS7. As you can see in the image above Apple is going for flatter look with Helvetica Nueue Ultra Light like font. Seth also notes:

Perhaps most interesting: There are two color schemes for many of these apps – one black-ish and one white-ish. We’re not sure if they are A/B decoys, if white iPhones and Black iPhones will have their own color schemes or as someone else suggested, the different color schemes might be invoked by the amount of ambient light or the time of day. But it is super-interesting, especially since we’ve heard whispers that the whole UI might shift slightly based on external factors similar to the way the music volume icon switches based on how you hold the iPhone.

In the article on 9to5mac, Seth also talks about other design changes like 5 dots for representation of signal strength and the rumored Airdrop feature. Check out the article on 9to5mac.
