Control Center iPad iOS 7, Game Center and Notification Center below

It appears that some developers have been posting iOS 7 on iPad (emulator) usage shots on the web. Aside from Apple’s somewhat hidden official images, there aren’t any other official images of the iPad running iOS 7 that are public. We’d heard even before the keynote that Apple was behind in releasing iOS 7 for iPad and as such initial iOS 7 betas are only for iPhones and iPod touches.

You’ll note the flashlight option on the Control Center which is probably just a leftover since the iPad doesn’t yet have a Flash.

Reader Phillip describes how to get iOS 7 iPad emulator running in Xcode 5:


Copy the folder:

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


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

Then open the iOS Simulator and select \”iPad (Retina)\” as device.

(Current Xcode 4 and Xcode 5 is required.)
