Wondering what to expect at this year's Apple Developer's convention? Here's a quick overview of rumors we've gathered this far.
WWDC 2013 Rumors 1: iPhone 5S or Budget iPhone
Ok. So we've heard tons of speculation about the next iPhone and when it will release, with some if the heaviest buzz surrounding the iPhone 5S and the new budget iPhone--presumed to be a make over of the iPhone 5, featuring cheaper components to drive down the price.
Though a recent update to the Apple roadmap predicts we'll see both the new iPhone 5S and budget iPhone released at the same time with production beginning in the June-July time period, it's pretty unlikely we'll see either of them introduced during the WWDC 2013 live stream. Tim Cook alluded to the fact that new iDevices should not be expected until Fall 2013, and since this is the same time we finally saw the long awaited iPhone 5 emerge, we think it's pretty likely that's the same time period to look for these new iPhones. The budget iPhone we've heard tons of speculation about including that it could be plastic and come in a variety of colors but thus far those concepts seems still a bit far fetched.
In addition, one of the killer features we look for in the iPhone 5S is the possible incorporation of the fingerprint sensor for identity authentication and mobile payments. There's been a fair amount of evidence this could be the killer feature in iPhone 5S from filed patents, to Apple's acquiring of AuthenTec, to a PayPal executive Michael Barret suggesting that Apple was going to incorporate fingerprint readers on their smartphones as part of new way to protect personal information, this seems like one of the most viable new additions we'll see in the iPhone 5S. Though the WWDC live stream may not give us any more hints about these two new devices safe to say more will be known about them very soon.
WWDC 2013 Rumors 2: iPad 5 or iPad Mini 2
Although there been a lot of speculation that we might see both the iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2 revealed at WWDC 2013 live stream as the iPad 3 and original iPad Mini were, we're not convinced that will be the case this year. Again, Tim Cook alluded to the fact no new iDevices would be revealed until the Fall, and recent report including the Apple roadmap seems to peg production to begin late summer with a release in October for the iPad 5 and November for the iPad Mini 2. Not to say they couldn't be showcased at WWDC 2013 live stream but, somehow I think more focus will be on new software and OSX models.
WWDC 2013 Rumors 3:Retina MacBook Pro and MacBook Air
Speaking of OSX models, how about them MacBook Pros and MacBook Airs? From recent reports these are two Apple devices we'll most certainly see showcased at the WWDC 2013 live stream. Both the MacBook Pro retina and non-retina version are expected to see an upgrade with the incorporation of a new Haswell chip to increase battery power. There have been some murmurings that one of the new MacBook Air models could feature a Retina display but we're not banking on it as this is one feature that has thus far separated the MacBook Pro line from the MacBook Air.
WWDC 2013 Rumors 4: iOS 7
iOS 7 is probably the most anticipated announcement of the WWDC 2013 live stream as big changes are expected in the new mobile operating system. Though some leaked photos have hinted that the redesign may only make slight changes to the system, others purport that major changes are coming as a flatter, more unified look is expected for the next iOS. It is thought we could see some big changes to the notification center and how users manipulate and manage their notifications, while changes to the lockscreen are also expected. Nothing has really been set in stone just yet so we'll just have to wait and see what goes down when WWDC 2013 kicks off.
WWDC 2013 Rumors 5: OSX 10.9
The biggest hint we've heard about the next OS for Apple desktops and laptops is that its focus will be more on "power users" and as such we hope to see some new features added to the next OSX which would be showcased during Apple's annual developers conference. Some talk of incorporating SIRI as well as other favorite iOS features have been mentioned, so keep an eye out for what iOS 7 reveals for hints about what OSX 10.9 may feature.
WWDC 2013 Rumor 6: Updated iCloud Services: iRadio and Beyond
So anohter thing we expect to see announced are changes to the iCloud services. Though iCloud has been touted as a primo service that "just works', unfortunately the reality is, it doesn't always "just work" like it ought. Forbes writer, Anthony Cosner offers nice insight on this point:
"Frankly, what developers (and consumers) most need from Apple are substantial improvements to its iCloud services. The extent to which iCloud "just works" is a sore spot for many developers who have been burned trying to get it to behave as expected in their apps. iCloud's dysfunctions are responsible for a lot of one star ratings in the App Store and many developers have pulled back from offering sync services or integrated with third parties, like Dropbox, instead."
That being said, not only do we expect to hear about improvements to iCloud, we also know there has been a lot of buzz around a new music service, dubbed "iRadio", which could emerge at WWDC 2013 for Apple users. With Apple recently making deals with big music companies for a streaming service it's pretty likely we'll hear something about this at WWDC 2013 keynote. In addition, a streaming music service would make a great outlet for Apple to begin incorporating more iAds. iAds help support developers with in-app advertising, and may also be quite appealing to record labels working out deals with Apple as well.
