Flickr and Vimeo already enjoy deep integration in OS X

According to 9to5Mac, iOS 7 will see deep integration of Yahoo’s Flickr and video-sharing website Vimeo.

The next major update to Apple’s mobile operating system will see the two services given the same treatment as Twitter and Facebook did with iOS 5 and iOS 6, respectively.

Citing a source familiar with the matter, 9to5Mac says that, much like Facebook and Twitter, users will be able to sign on to Flickr and Vimeo in the Settings app and give other apps access to the login credentials they’ve already supplied to iOS 7 on a case-by-case basis.

The move makes sense, given that Flickr is already integrated into the iPhoto for iOS app and both services enjoy similar integration in OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion on the Mac.

Flickr’s deeper integration comes at a good time. The service was given an overhaul earlier on this week, with users now given 1TB of free space to store their photo uploads.
