Report: Apple testing iOS 7 LinkedIn integration

Updated

Apple is reportedly testing “deep LinkedIn integration” for the release of iOS 7. Similar to prior integration of Facebook and Twitter, a single sign-on system for LinkedIn accounts was found within code in the first beta of iOS 7. Apple could introduce this feature in the final release of iOS 7, but it’s also possible that it could vanish entirely after internal testing. An earlier report regarding Apple’s plans to integrate Flickr and Vimeo into iOS 7 for photo and video sharing turned out to be true. However, the rationale behind deeply integrating LinkedIn isn’t as obvious, unless it’s merely to offer users easy access to yet another social network. [via 9to5Mac]
