The most important event for developers of applications and programs running on iOS and OS X Mountain Lion will take place next week in San Francisco. On this occasion, Social Barrel presents you a short list of possible releases from Apple.
A new line of MacBook Pro laptops
One of the most discussed topics in the specialized press about the WWDC 2012 is the launch of new models under the MacBook Pro lineup of devices. The 13- and 15-inch laptops that will likely launch next week will benefit from Ivy Bridge processors and have thinner designs. Another interesting feature rumored in the media represents the debut of a Retina screen for the upcoming laptops, which would mean higher resolution and greater clarity of the display.
Similar scenario for the range of Macs?
In addition to the new MacBook Pro, we could also see new configurations for iMac, Mac Pro and Mac mini. Changes will most likely be only in terms of hardware and we have nothing to expect when it comes to a new design.
Another rumor started by people from Boy Genius Report cites a source inside the Cupertino-based company about the launch of an operating system specifically created for the Apple TV. The new platform could include personal assistant Siri and a redesigned interface as well.
IOS 6: A new operating system for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch
Finally, it seems that people at Apple are preparing a beta version of the new operating system, iOS 6, dedicated to the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Regarding iOS 6, we can expect to see a number of features that would represent a natural evolution of the platform. Thus, an integration of Facebook into the operating system does not seem so hard to imagine for the new version. In addition, it appears that the final version of the iOS 6, which most likely will launch this autumn, will feature the personal assistant Siri on the iPad. So far, only iPhone 4S users have the pleasure to “communicate” with Siri.
Of course, all this information is still speculation. We’ll have to wait until next week to find out exactly what Apple wants for the near future.
The 2012 World Wide Developers Conference will take place between June 11th and 15th at Moscone Center in San Francisco.
