Apple (AAPL -1.3%) roundup: 1) Bloomberg reports Jony Ive's team is "racing to finish iOS 7," expected to feature a major UI overhaul, in time for a preview at June's WWDC. This meshes with what John Gruber reported hearing a month ago. Bloomberg also reports Ive has "met with makers of gesture [recognition] technology" - is Leap Motion among them? 2) Top Apple shareholder Fidelity Contrafund cut its stake by 12% in Q1; fund manager Will Danoff is worried about competition and margin pressure (previous). 3) Apple's collaboration with automakers has reportedly extended to creating in-car consoles that support iPhone docking and access to Maps/Siri.
