iOS 7 includes integration with Flickr and Vimeo. Developer, Hamza Sood has discovered code references in iOS 7 beta, which indicate that Apple is also working on integrating LinkedIn in iOS 7.

Yesterday, Sood had discovered the hidden Settings in iOS 7, which revealed Apple is testing new gestures and folder enhancements.

We’re assuming that the LinkedIn integration will work like the Facebook and Twitter integration, where users will be able to post content directly on LinkedIn via a share sheet.

9to5Mac reports that Sood has discovered LinkedIn related code in iOS 7 beta, but certain pieces are still missing, which is probably the reason it is not available to users currently.

As 9to5Mac points out, it won’t come as a surprise if LinkedIn is deeply integrated in iOS 7 as OS X Mavericks, the next major update of OS X includes a Shared Links feature in the new Sidebar, which shows links posted by people you follow on Twitter and LinkedIn.

Here’s a look at some of the LinkedIn related code references discovered in iOS 7 beta:
