So what are we expecting to hear? Seems like A L O T.
iOS6 – no secret since the banner is already out. So what will be in there?
** A non-Google Map Solution with much improved (aka kickass) 3D mapping feature
** Improved Siri with more features and on the rest of iOS devices?
** Facebook integration. Everything you do on your phone gets to be shared on FB Timeline?
** Improved iCloud services, better PhotoStream…
** Improved iPhoto for iOS (with sorting…please?)
OSX Mountain Lion – Remember there’s “another OS”:http://www.apple.com/macosx/mountain-lion/ that Apple is working on?
Hardware updates to Mac line. Maybe some, maybe all.
** MacBook Pro/Air becoming just…MacBook? Better screen, new Intel Ivy Bridge processor…?
** iMac also with better screen, Intel Ivy Bridge processor…?
** Mac mini too with Ivy Bridge
** Dare say even the Mac Pro gets an update?
Apple TV – not the small puck with no HD, but a big ass TV with an Apple logo?
iPhone – not expecting to be announced until Autumn, but we’ve seen a video of a “back case”:http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=8XY841RAY4Y that seems to show what rumors been referring to – longer but slimmer body – maybe we’ll get a surprise
So – any predictions?
