Apple is looking for an iOS Frameworks QA Engineer, according to a new job vacancy posted on their website today. This clearly indicates that things are getting underway for the launch of iOS 7 at WWDC this summer. The job posting shows that the next generation of the iOS systems will contain new APIs and frameworks.
According to the job description:
[quote] Responsibilities in this position will include developing and maintaining a set of iOS test apps for new and existing APIs in the public iOS SDK. A significant amount of time will be spent working on feature bring-up for new APIs before they are released to developers. This includes developing the very first apps to support new APIs/frameworks in the iOS SDK, as well as developing some of the accompanying web services, tools and test data sets needed to ensure that the features work end-to-end for developers.[/quote]
Of course, there is not entirely surprising, Apple has always introduced new APIs and frameworks in previous major iOS updates. However, it’s still nice to get solid confirmation that iOS 7 will be no different.
