For the past couple of days, we’ve been hearing lots of rumors about what’s going to be released at the WWDC. Apple’s got many fans sitting on the edge of their seats anticipating the next best thing! What does the new iTunes software mean? What’s going to be new in the new OS, Snow Leopard? What does the new tablet have? Let’s get to it!
First off, is there even going to be a new iPhone coming out?
Reason #1 to believe that there’s going to be a new phone released: new iPhone OS 3.0 software release. Normally when there’s a new software release, a new phone is going to come out. Let’s face it, when Apple releases something this big, they go big and never go home.
Reason #2 A picture could mean a thousand words. Images from the web show a legit reason to believe!
Reason #3 Best Buy’s inventory shows a dwindling stock of iPhones. Evidence shows that the 8GB iPhone will no longer be shipped to their stores after November of this year, and after September 2010 for the 16GB version. If Best Buy were to drop the lower-priced iPhone, does that mean the 16GB version will be their base product?
Reason #4 Digitimes reported that shipments of circuit boards for the new iPhone are on its way from five Taiwan-based printed circuit board (PCB) makers for a June announcement.
Reason #5 We concluded that the release of the 3.0 iPhone firmware coming, Apple might have released iTunes 8.2 too soon. This version of the software was released for those who had the 3.0 firmware and to fix some security concerns. Of course, all we care about is iPhone software 3.0 compatibly.
Reason #6 Research has found that the new iPhone could come in four different storage capacities: 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB. With that said, having a more affordable iPhone on the smartphone market will allow Apple to win customers from all over the financial spectrum. More rumors have shown pictures of a matte finish, which attracts those who dislike the original feel of the phone.
What’s coming with the new OS, Snow Leopard?
Gadget Lab reported, “The new, improved version of Mac OS X--Snow Leopard--will be shipping on June 8th,” and will come packaged with a completely overhauled user interface. AppleInsider highlighted the new possible features:
• Next Snow Leopard builds to include big changes
• Snow Leopard to be wrapped in new interface ahead of launch
• WWDC to offer finalized preview, release date, and
• Upcoming iPhone OS 3 beta to activate live Push Notification support
The new tablet was rumored to come alongside, which was estimated to cost around $700 to $800. AppleInsider reports the unofficial Mac tablet to cost $2,279. It’s been said that it’s basically a hardware modification to the MacBook notebook line. Wired also released an article, stating that it will feature a 7- or 9-inch screen.
