Rumors have been all the buzz lately. Â For the past few months, all that is being said in the tech world (or at least the Apple tech world, I’ll exaggerate) is whether or not the iPhone 5 will appear at WWDC this year. Â Not to mention whether or not it will be called the iPhone 5, what new features it will bring, and what it will look like. Â The only problem with these rumors though is that we have to take them for what they are, have no way to prove them true or false, and won’t know how accurate they really are until Steve Jobs himself says so. Â Also, I hate rumors because each conflicting report reminds me how unreliable some sources are, and how only the guys in charge know for sure. Â With that being said, I am now prepared to make my own predictions without any rumor to base them on. Â No, I don’t plan on using my imagination to concoct some new device in head. Â However, I am going to be as realistic as I can and pretend that I know exactly how Mr. Jobs’ keynote on Monday will go.
First, Steve will be greeted with a standing ovation.
Next, after the usual reports and statistics of how successful Apple has been, he will move on to his first major point: Mac OS X Lion.Â After revealing how similar Lion is to iOS, and announcing that it will be available that day. (This is just a guess, some suspect it could be the 14th of this month.) Jobs will transition into his next major point, iOS 5.
Sure, I could write an entire post about what we will see in iOS 5, and how great those mockups by Jan-Michael Cart look, but I won’t. It’ll hopefully include the revamped notifications, maybe some widgets, plus other goodies. The truth is, the biggest update will come in form of the iCloud announcement. We could see wireless syncing and activation, who knows? Either way, iCloud will revolutionize iOS and Mac OS X.
Finally, Steve will reveal iCloud, the missing link between Mac OSX and iOS that ties it all together. Â The audience will be thrilled.
But will there be “one more thing..?” Â Most likely, yes. Â We can only hope, though, that it comes in the form of a next generation iPhone. Â Part of me is convinced that Apple has an iPhone 5 ready to surprise the world with on Monday, but of course that pesky other part of me disagrees. Â I’m sure all of you have already made up your minds on what you expect to see Monday. Â Some of you will agree with me, and others will wait until Monday night to point out every place where I was wrong. Â But in the mean time, what do you think? Â Pretend for a second that you know what’s coming, or let me know what would excite you the most. Â I would love to hear some other predictions!
