Apple’s WWDC Starts Today – Will We See The iPhone 5?

Apple’s annual World Wide Developer’s Conference (WWDC) kicks off today in San Francisco. Tech sites around the web are speculating that CEO Tim Cook could unveil a shiny new iPhone 5, iOS 6, and new Mac hardware.

Apple is a creature of habit. Under Steve Jobs’ rule, they stuck to a pretty consistent update schedule, and they’ve never announced a new iPhone at WWDC. Sorry, it just doesn’t seem all that likely that Cook and Co. will announce a new iPhone. It’s much more likely that we’ll see a host of new software announcements.

So with my trusty Magic 8 Ball, little-to-no research, a half a liter of Mountain Dew, and my iPhone 4 duct taped firmly to my heart, let’s try and predict WWDC 2012!

Terry’s Apple WWDC Predictions:

  • iOS 6 – the latest and greatest operating system for the iPhone and iPad will be announced with new features that we simply have to have. This is Apple’s developer conference after all. They want the devs to have the new operating system so they can continue to make apps. iOS 6 is rumored to have Facebook integration, and make a mean slice of French Toast.
  • OS X ‘Mountain Lion’ – the latest and greatest operating system for the Mac platform. Look for OS X to continue to become a hybrid of iOS.
  • iCloud – everyone has cloud-based systems now and Apple’s needs a lot of work. The foundation is there, but Lord help it, iCloud just isn’t very useful. I can’t recall the last time I used iCloud for anything. Dropbox, on the other hand, gets used daily. Expect an update that may make it more relevant.
  • iMac, Macbook, and Macbook Air – Apple could pull a hardware refresh on their Mac line. Let me shake the Magic 8 Ball: Signs hazy. Ask again at 11am.
  • An Apple Television – This one’s been running through the rumor mill a lot lately, and I really don’t see it happening. I can’t honestly see Apple releasing a branded television.

That’s my best guess based on articles from Gizmodo, TUAW, Engadget, my Magic 8 Ball, and because I’m a die-hard Apple fan boy.

Remember, I’m not a real tech analyst. I only play one on the radio.
