Eight Things We Expect to See from Apple in 2011

by P. J. Connolly
The New Year will bring a lot of surprises, but it doesn't take a quick shake of the box to figure out some of what Apple has on tap for 2011. Between the shakeup of application distribution contained in the Mac App Store, a new "Lion" release of Mac OS X, and new versions of the iPad and iPhone expected before midyear, there's a lot more going on with Apple's product plans than the routine enhancements to processors and graphics. The big question for some users will be: will Mac OS X Lion be the last release of the operating system for server-side computing, or will Apple exit that market entirely, to focus more closely on its burgeoning consumer business? In any event, the increasing use of consumer devices in IT environments will mean good news (and healthy balance sheets) for Apple in the coming year.
P. J. Connolly began writing for IT publications in 1997 and has a lengthy track record in both news and reviews. Since then, he's built two test labs from scratch and earned a reputation as the nicest skeptic you'll ever meet. Before taking up journalism, P. J. was an IT manager and consultant in San Francisco with a knack for networking the Apple Macintosh, and his love for technology is exceeded only by his contempt for the flavor of the month.
