No one “on the outside” knows what Steve Jobs will show at WWDC, except for what Apple has formally announced:
- More stuff about Mac OS X 10.7, aka “Lion”
- New stuff about iOS 5 (a new version of the operating system that makes your iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch work)
- New stuff about a service called “iCloud”
Anyone who says he knows more is probably just guessing. Apple does not like leaks, so even if a person does have insider info he would be foolish to tell. So no, I don’t know whether we will see an iPhone 5. Or an iPad 3. Or some other gizmo that completely changes the game.
Basically don’t know any more than you do. I have to wait for the keynote, just like everyone else. No matter what, it will be great to see Steve Jobs doing his thing on stage, even if it’s delayed until Apple gets the video up.
Next year might be a different story. By then, I will be, officially, an Apple Developer, building iPad and iPhone apps (I can do simple stuff already, and making progress week to week). Thus, the WWDC would be a great place for me to be next June. In that case, I could report live from Moscone West.
If I can get my company to pay for it I’m going.
UPDATE: the Keynote Speech video is available via this link.
