As reported by 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman, Apple is going to integrate video site Vimeo and photo sharing site Flickr into the next version of iOS. According to an anonymous source familiar with the development of iOS, Apple is planning to include an increased presence of third-party social networks in iOS 7.
Just like YouTube, iOS users will be able to upload video straight to Vimeo from their iPhones and iPads. Similarly, users will be able to upload their photos to Yahoo’s photo sharing website Flickr straight from their devices.
“Both Flickr and Vimeo will now also be integrated deeply into the new operating system, so users will be able to sign into the respective networks via iOS 7?s built-in Settings application. Like with iOS’s Facebook and Twitter ties, Apple customers will be able to log-in one time into each social network and have full sharing access.”
The report speculates that With Flickr integration, iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch customers will have the ability to share photos on their devices to Flickr with a single tap from the system-wide share menu. Also, similar to Facebook and Twitter, the new iOS integration for Flickr will allow for instant log-in to Flickr via various App Store apps.
