Since releasing iOS 7 beta to developers last week during the keynote kick-off at WWDC 2013, Apple and its developers have made waves for the enormous potential uncovered in the forthcoming major mobile OS refresh planned for later this year.
Among the most curious discoveries this week is that iOS 7 may feature deep integration with LinkedIn.
Inching up the social importance ladder that Facebook and Twitter previously ascended, Apple is apparently planning to add a third social network to the system-wide share sheet in iOS 7.
Code-based references found inside the first beta of iOS 7 suggest that the Cupertino, California-based tech giant is testing deep LinkedIn integration.
Analogous to the arrangement with Twitter and Facebook, the code points to a single-sign-on system for LinkedIn accounts, a development that would allow users to easily post content such as Web URLs to LinkedIn from native and third party applications.
Although iOS 7 was widely expected to deliver extensive third party service support anyway, the addition of LinkedIn as a social priority would definitely be a welcome surprise to many iOS fans.
