Ahh, WWDC 2010. A serious sit-down with developers and Apple working together to polish up the app landscape for the twelve months to come, or a chance to wear Steve Jobs masks and run around making crass Microsoft jokes? If you haven't already got your ticket you'll never know, as this years conference is sold out.
Rumors of Apple's Mac Pro Intel hexacore refresh taking place in mid-March saw the leaked date come and go, leaving us - and, more importantly, the video and media pros waiting to upgrade their Apple desktops to the latest processors - still none the wiser as to when the flagship desktop line might be updated. Now, according to information apparently from Intel's distribution network, it seems possible that Apple could announce the new Mac Pro models at WWDC 2010.
So WWDC 2010 is fast approaching - June 7th we now know - and while developers may be concentrating on getting their apps up to speed with iPhone OS 4.0, the rest of us will be anticipating the debut of the iPhone HD. The fourth-generation iPhone may have been unofficially previewed over the past few weeks, but we're confident that Steve Jobs & Co. will still have a few surprises in store. While we'd love to stuff you all in our bags and take you in with us, we'll have to do the next best thing and run the traditional SlashGear liveblog at http://live.slashgear.com/.
Apple have announced the dates for their Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC 2010), which will kick off on June 7th 2010 and offer coders the first ever iPad development sessions together with working labs for iPhone OS 4. Registration for the five day event is now open, with sessions including "Using HTML5 Local Data Storage" and "Integrating Ads with iAd".
Just a reminder - as if you could forget - that the Apple WWDC 2009 kicks off this morning and SlashGear will be live-blogging the whole keynote. Join us at 10am Pacific time (that's 1pm New York and 6pm London) at http://live.slashgear.com/ where our auto-refresh liveblog system will carry you through the whole event with the minimum of stress.
With the Apple WWDC 2009 Keynote a matter of hours away now, it seems as good a time as any to wrap up the latest next-gen iPhone rumors. We've already heard about the higher-resolution camera with newly acquired video recording capabilities; now Daring Fireball are suggesting that the handset will in fact be called the iPhone 3GS, believed to be its current in-house codename. The iPhone 3GS will be just one of a range of multiple Apple smartphones: as many as twelve, according to carrier information leaked to Spazio Cellulare.
Next Monday Apple kick off their 2009 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), and first thing on the schedule is one of the most eagerly anticipated keynotes of the year. Apple is expected to announce a new, third-generation iPhone Video, and SlashGear will be live-blogging the whole keynote at http://live.slashgear.com/ from 10am PT on Monday June 8th 2009.
Tickets are all sold out, but if you were headed to Apple's WWDC next month in the hope of seeing Steve Jobs take to the stage, prepare for disappointment. Apple have confirmed that Philip Schiller, senior VP of worldwide product marketing, will be delivering the WWDC09 keynote, while the rest of the week will offer more details and demonstrations of OS X Snow Leopard and iPhone OS 3.0.
