    There are different levels of spoilers when it comes to Apple keynotes.

    Some people don't care and follow along with live blogs as the event unfolds. Others prefer radio silence and avoid all news sites and social media until they have a chance to watch it themselves.

    2013 was the first year that Apple really committed to streaming all of their keynotes live, and that has lessened the need for people to be anxious about spoilers, since they're able to watch it at the exact same time as those in the audience reporting on it.

    Sometimes Apple itself has to be wary of spoilers too. These keynotes are always built in such a way that maximizes the surprise of each announcement and are almost always ordered such that the most exciting news comes near the end. But what happens when one announcement will spoil another one?

    When Craig Federighi announces Finder Tabs, he shows a screenshot from Mavericks that shows several things not yet announced, like Tags in the Finder, and the Maps and iBooks apps in the dock. Clearly, they were unconcerned that an astute viewer would pick up on these, and they would be announced minutes later.

    However, later on during the Maps app demo, Federighi shows off his favorite feature, sending a set of directions from the Mac to his iPhone. The iPhone shown on screen sports an iOS 6 user interface. Indeed, I wouldn't be surprised if the screenshot was mocked up; I have not been able to get the feature to work with the iPad I still have on iOS 6. iOS 7 went public a month before Mavericks: September 18 vs October 22.

    Of course, iOS 7's completely redesigned user interface was the biggest reveal of the entire keynote, so Apple would be careful to not spoil it prematurely. When Tim Cook did finally reveal it with a Jony Ive-narrated video, he got a standing ovation from about half the audience.

    The design of iOS 7 was one of the best-kept secrets that Apple has ever managed to not have spoilt.
