Apple’s WWDC conference will kick off on June 6, and this is where the company normally talks iPhone and iOS.
If the past is anything to go by, the next iteration of the iPhone 5 will be announced around this date, but whether it’s going to be June 6 or not remains to be seen.
The iPhone 5 has already attracted a lot of attention on the rumour mill, with people predicting it’ll have an aluminium rear, NFC integration and a larger display.
The keynote hasn’t been revealed yet and who will present it is another story. Steve Jobs is currently on medical leave of absence, although he was once again brought out to present the iPAd 2 launch.
It’s also pretty likely the manufacturer will talk iOS, and hopefully the next iteration will be launched here too.
Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing, said in a statement, “At this year’s conference we are going to unveil the future of iOS and Mac OS. If you are an iOS or Mac OS X software developer, this is the event that you do not want to miss.”
WWDC is traditionally the place of big launches and although we’re not sure it’s time for the iPad 3 to be presented for the world, we do hope an update to the firmware will be announced.
The iOS 4.3.1 update has already launched, so maybe it could be a minor update, iOS 4.3.2, or a much larger update (iOS 5, anyone)?
Last year, Apple launched the iPhone 4 and iOS 4 – just look how popular those two products were.
We’ll have all the coverage as usual, so keep your eyes peeled for predicitons and the latest rumours here.
