Breaking:There might be a “one more thing” at WWDC 2011

Apple has always been the best at introducing new products with the slogan”one more thing”(Welcome,Macbook Air) and it seems like today too at the WWDC  something apart from iCloud,iOS and Lion that is going to be released with the tag line “one more thing”. The covered banner below makes us the believe the above statement.

Lets wait and watch what the One more thing will be(if it will be).

 

WWDC 2011 — What we expect, What we don’t!

Yup fellas, with just a little over 24 hours left for Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2011, things are all beginning to shape up nicely. With numerous tech blogs having already made live blogging pages and developers chewing their nails in readiness for the event to begin, we make note of our own expectations from Apple, and what we think won’t be a part of the extravaganza. Lets first begin with things we already know:

1. Mac OS X 10.7 ‘Lion’ – With a preview already given by Apple, there isn’t much to discuss about the next Mac OS i.e. Lion. In case you missed out on the preview, you can get all the info here.

2. iOS 5 – The next generation OS of Apple’s mobile devices iPhone and iPad, the iOS 5, is expected to have a number of improvements with regard to it’s notification system. iOS 5 is also expected to support widgets, while over-the-air (OTA) OS update and wireless syncing remain unsure. iOS 5 is also expected to have twitter integrated deeply into its OS.

3. iCloud – This new music locker service will let users store their purchases in the cloud. Apple has already signed deals with top music labels which together has cost Apple around $150 million. Apple also bought the domain icloud.com for a whopping $4.5million. It is rumored that this service will be free at the start but will cost $25 later on. Now the unsure Questions:

1. Will MobileMe disappear? – A lot of people have said that the iCloud service will be a complete package and will include all services provided by MobileMe plus music locker services. Some tech experts, on the other hand, suggest that iCloud will be an addition to the MobileMe services. Conclusion: Probability – 50%

2. A new iPhone? – A lot of tech guru’s have predicted that the iPhone 5 would launch in fall or maybe later, but some rumors have suggested that Apple will be launching an Apple iPhone 4S at this WWDC. But as far as I understand, it seems quite unlikely. Conclusion: Probability – 25%

3. New Macbook Air? – Of late, there has been a shortage in the supply of Macbook Airs. Also, best buy and many such shopping websites are giving away Macbook Air at a discounted rate. All this points to a new Macbook Air but seems quite unlikely. Conclusion: Probability – 35%

4. Will the Lion OS be downloadable via Mac App Store? – Every Mac app including iWork and iLife is now available on the Mac App store so I see no reason why the Lion OS won’t. Conclusion: Probability – 90%

These are just a few question covered but in reality there are a lot more (but having the most important ones covered above it seems like a good build up to the WWDC 2011. Isn’t it?)

Apple all set to “unveil the future of iOS and Mac OS” at WWDC 2011 (June 6-10)

Apple has just given us a hint that this year’s World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) — all set to take place from June 6 to 10 at the Moscone West Center in San Francisco, CA — will be a special event as “the future of iOS and Mac OS” will be revealed. This kills any rumors of an early sneak-peek into iOS 5. Nothing before June. (We almost got it spot on!)

“At this year’s conference we are going to unveil the future of iOS and Mac OS,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “If you are an iOS or Mac OS X software developer, this is the event that you do not want to miss.”

Apple gives us an insight as to what we are up for:

  • more than 100 technical sessions presented by Apple engineers on a wide range of technology-specific topics for developing, deploying and integrating the latest iOS and Mac OS technologies;
  • over 1,000 Apple engineers providing developers with code-level assistance, insight into optimal development techniques, and guidance on how they can make the most of iOS and Mac OS technologies in their apps;
  • the opportunity to connect with thousands of fellow iPad®, iPhone® and Mac developers from around the world; and
  • Apple Design Awards which recognize iPad, iPhone and Mac apps that demonstrate technical excellence, innovation and outstanding design.

Tickets to the event will set you back by $1599!

P.S. Just like WWDC 2010, will Apple present us with the next gen iPhone and make it an event to remember?
