The techies would tell you that there hasn’t been a major update in Apple products since Steve Jobs’ passing a year ago. Still, the annual Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) is obviously one of the most anticipated events of the year.
Unlike all other “high geek leveled” events, the WWDC tickets has a limited capacity with tickets going faster than you can blink. Last year, it sold out within 12 hours but this year, it was gone in merely two hours.
Analysts believe that the mad speed of ticket sales was fueled by the increasing popularity of Apple’s iPhone, the iPad, and laptop line-up. So in the interest of making money’s worth for people who managed to snagged the WWDC 2012 tickets, here’s what Apple CEO Tim Cook is expected to roll out this year:
- iOS 6 – the new mobile OS that will power the iPhone, iPod Touch, and the iPad.
- The new iPhone
- Mac OS – OS X Mountain Lion
- New hardware – iMac, Mac Pro, other laptop models
As of now, the above-listed are only what’s rumoured expect for one – the announcement of iOS 6. This was confirmed by banners that appeared at the Moscone conference center in San Francisco last weekend. Still, nobody knows what new features will come with the new mobile operating system.
With regards to the new iPhone/iPhone 5/whatever it’s going to be called, analysts have commented that it probably wouldn’t be unveiled at the WWDC 2012 because it’d be cutting it too close to the release of the iPhone 4S, which was only announced in October 2011.
This supposed iPhone leak video, however, suggested otherwise:

And the plot thickens!
