New MacBooks, Improved iCloud, iOS Apps Would be Cheered
5. New MacBooks?
Apples MacBook line is now well on its way to becoming some of the top computers in the marketplace. However, the company hasnt released any new MacBooks this year so far. Is there a possibility that Apple will show off new models at WWDC? After all, it seems like the perfect place, considering Mountain Lion will be on display.
6. An eye on the Apple TV
According to rumors, Apple is planning to launch a television at some point in the next several months. The issue, though, is that Apple has never confirmed its actually developing or launching a television, let alone said when it might come out. Although its unlikely that Apple will actually show off a television at WWDC, there is a chance it might hint at its future plans with the device. Keep a close eye on that.
7. New and improved iOS apps
One of the nice things about WWDC since it is a developers conference is that Apple has the chance to show off new applications and other software features not found elsewhere. At this years conference, expect the iPhone maker to impress developers and fans alike with some new and improved iOS apps.
8. iCloud improvements
Apples iCloud platform is just plain nice. The offering allows users to synchronize content across multiple devices. As Apple itself acknowledged, iCloud was very much a work in progress when it first arrived last year. Heres hoping Apple will talk about some improvements to that work in progress at WWDC.
9. Some iTunes love
Over the last several years, Apple, for the most part, hasnt made major improvement to iTunes. Instead, the company has been content to leave it alone and continue to generate serious cash from it. In the future, however, it would be nice to see Apple give the platform a much-needed refresh and show why its still the central hub of its entertainment offerings. WWDC seems like the perfect place for Apple to do just that.
10. Apples gloating
Finally, we can all but expect Apple to use its platform at WWDC to gloat about its successes over the last several months since it last spoke before the media, customers and partners. Apple CEO Tim Cook will undoubtedly talk about his companys strong sales, app downloads and a host of other figures designed to make the Cupertino-based company look great and all others look bad.
