Leaked Image Suggests 'Voice Memo' Will Return in Future iOS 7 Beta Release

A leaked image from a WWDC developer session is making the rounds, showing that the Voice Memo app that isn't currently included in the iOS 7 Beta 1 will make an appearance in a future release.

Also, a tipster tells us the release notes for the first iOS 7 Beta mention the Voice Memo app:

Voice Memos - Known Issues

The VoiceMemos app is not available in this seed.

The Voice Memo app doesn't seem to appear in any of the iOS 7 marketing materials on Apple's website, but developers should see it in a future iOS 7 beta release and we expect it to be included in the final iOS 7 release this fall.

I gotta say, any icon is better than what they used to be under Forstall.

Yeah... because a squiggly line is more indicative of "voice recording" than a microphone.

Is that a seismograph app icon? :confused:

A polygraph tracing. The iPhone will know if you lie.
