Likelihood: High

When iOS 6 debuted last September, it generated a ton of publicity -- but not the kind that Apple wanted. The biggest problem, of course, was the notorious Maps app, which provided bum directions, strangely distorted 3-D maps and other grotesqueries. The rest of iOS 6 was okay but hardly qualified as insanely great; nothing new really stirred the Apple faithful. Hence a rewrite is needed ASAP, and iOS 7 is rumored to arrive with the iPhone 5S. Version 7's feature list remains a mystery, but many bloggers are busy posting their wish lists, which include a better Siri (yes, please), automatic app updates and the freedom to choose your default browser.
