In the past, there were speculations that on Apple’s WWDC 2011, we would get to see the much awaited successor the iPhone 4, the iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S. However, Apple suggests that its conference will be all about software and not hardware. So what should you expect out this annual developer’s conference?
First of all, it is will unveil its music streaming and digital locker, iCloud. According to Businessweek, the said service allows users to access their library on iTunes on any Apple device like the iPad 2 or the iPhone 4.
The OS X Lion is also expected to make an appearance. Lion is expected to bring the best the iPad has to offer to Mac. This includes multi-touch, auto-saving apps, mail with a fresh new look, as well as file versioning. It will also include wireless sharing and new features to Safari.
Another thing we’re almost certain of is the announcement of the iOS 5. This will be available for the iPod Touch, iPhone 4, and the iPad. Although it is not expected to roll out until September, it is most likely to be iCloud-integrated. Enhanced notifications are expected. The OS X’s Widgets and Spaces are also expected to make it to the new iOS. We do, however, have bad news. We do not expect this iteration to the iOS to roll out for the iPhone 3G S.
This may be disappointing news for you, but there is larger picture here. However, these software upgrades are big as well. Imagine everything Apple brought together up in the clouds. This common ground is something to look forward to, and proves that Apple has something bigger planned for the future.
You may have been expecting the next generation iPhone, but these software upgrades will give Apple the edge over its competition. This is bigger than dual-core processor-powered handsets.
