iOS 6 Ready for Launch at Apple WWDC, iPhone 5, iPad Mini Likely No-Shows
NEWS ANALYSIS: The iOS 6 banners are already on display at the Moscone West Convention Center, ready to dazzle attendees who arrive to attend the Apple World Wide Developers Conference. It’s still not clear what exactly will be in iOS 6, but there are still plenty of rumors.One has to assume that the workers at the Moscone West Convention Center in San Francisco didnt get the memo to keep the iOS 6 banners under wraps until June 11. But because they didnt get that memo the site of the Apple World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) does, in fact, have a number of banners heralding the arrival of iOS 6. So its a safe bet that the announcement of the next update of the operating system for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch will arrive on Monday, June 11, the first day of the conference. One thing thats also a virtual certainty is that the iPhone 5 wont be arriving then. Chances are the new iPhone will make its appearance in the fall, just as the iPhone 4S did in 2011. Its also a sure thing that there wont be a new iPad since the latest version came out in March.
The other big news is probably going to be an announcement for several new additions to the Macintosh line. Its been a while since new Macs came out, and there are plenty of new chips for Apple to take advantage of. Intels Sandy Bridge Xeon processors could give a new line of Macs some added oomph.
