NewImageApple appears to be building LinkedIn integration into iOS 7, though the feature is not active in the beta of iOS 7 that was released to developers last week. It is said to look similar to the social network integration that iOS currently sports for Facebook and Twitter.

Apple supposedly included Facebook integration in an early build of iOS 5, but it didn't make it into the final build because of failed negotiations between the two companies. Facebook integration was built into iOS 6.

9to5Mac, which originally reported the story, says iOS 7 users will be able to post content directly to LinkedIn via a share sheet. Apple has already announced LinkedIn integration for OS X Mavericks, so it would make sense to see similar integration in iOS 7.

Those saying they see little use for LinkedIn or that it's worthless likely don't have great paying jobs or work in a very professional environment. For those of us that do, it's a very important tool. Not only does it allow you to keep in contact with all kinds of business contacts but it's also one of the best ways to find a new and even better paying job. It allows us to network with people that can help us land that director or VP position at the company we want to be at. It allows us to keep up with industry news from those that are actually in the industry rather than the jumble of news you get elsewhere. The quality of items shared on LinkedIn has been shown to be much much higher than that on other sites like Facebook or Twitter. Anyone making over $60k/yr and not making use of LinkedIn is missing out on the chance for a much better paying job and being generally better at your job (those making less than that too but it tends to be even better the higher up you are).

How? Can you give details how this is invaluable? Please.

For my part, I run an advertising agency and most of my clients are Australian. I linked to people they linked to, they saw that people they knew had endorsed my agency for certain skills and they got in touch. Over the past twelve months I would say that LinkedIn has probably upped our turnover by around 40%, and financially speaking it has been incredible.

That's why it annoys me when others on the forum say 'who cares?' Some people do care, a lot, yet too many people on here think that their opinion counts for everyone just because they don't use it. I don't use use Facebook but I'm not narrow minded enough to whinge at Apple's integration.

EVERYONE the sharing API already exists in iOS 6. Download Tumblr or YouTube and go to the camera roll and hit the share button.....they are both there.
