4 days until this year’s Apple WWDC in San Francisco. This is a very special WWDC indeed as it will be the first post-Steve WWDC, where Tim Cook is expected to give the Keynote address. As always there are tons of rumours flying about. Here’s my predictions for what will be announced:
- Mountain Lion – this is a given, but we will get even more details on new features and APIs available.
- iOS 6 preview – it will come as a great shock to everyone if Apple doesn’t preview this during the keynote.
- Google Maps replacement APIs. MapKit is to be revamped to work with the new alleged Apple mapping service.
- New hardware – not sure on this one. If any hardware is demoed it will be the new iPhone. I am not expecting new computer models to be released.
Let’s be realistic. This year’s keynote is what? An hour and a half long? Well I bet only 2 topics will covered. Last year’s keynote was 2 hours and only 3 topics were covered: Lion, iOS 5 and iCloud.
Very exciting never the less, as tons of new APIs are too be announced in iOS and OS X!!! Looking forward to new MapKit and Facebook APIs.
See you all there in 4 days!!!
