WWDC 2012 Keynote gets pre-event Black Banner tease

The fabled Black Banner is back this morning at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference 2012 as we ramp up to the main event with our own live feed and stream, it likely containing that one big reveal we've been waiting for! This event is sure to be the home of a brand new version of Apple's mobile operating system iOS 6, we've seen a banner showing off what appears to be a slightly new iteration of Apple's AirPlay, and of course there's the Black Banner (photographed by @SaschaSegan) which will almost certainly be revealed during or directly after the first keynote. We expect it'll be something fabulous like a brand new MacBook Pro 2012 model or a showing of the final features of OS X Mountain Lion - let's have a peek at what's possible!

The Apple Store has gone down for "updating" ahead of WWDC 2012, with the company believed to be restocking the shelves with new MacBook Pro, Mac Pro, MacBook Air and other models.

Apple's annual developer event may kick off in just a few hours time but the rumor machine has been busy for months, churning out delicious chunks of speculation and hype. A new line of slinky MacBook Pro notebooks, blistering Mac Pro desktops, great swathes of iOS 6 and even a fresh iPhone have all been tipped for the opening WWDC 2012 keynote, each with their retinue of rumor and counter-rumor. As Tim Cook's moment on stage approaches, though, it's looking more and more possible that we've built ourselves up for more disappointment.

WWDC 2012: What’s not there is more interesting

WWDC 2012: What’s not there is more interesting

Rumors ahead of Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference 2012 (WWDC 2012) are flying thick and fast, with speculation, leaks and rumors all mounting as to what Tim Cook & Co. will reveal in the opening keynote. Apple puts on a good show, that's for certain, but it's sometimes more interesting to look at what doesn't make it to the stage than what products and services get their moment under the spotlight.

Mac Retina Display looking likely: High-res apps hit Mac App Store

Further evidence of a Retina Display upgrade for Apple's new Macs has emerged, with Mac App Store apps being quietly updated to apparently support the pixel-dense panels. File sync tool FolderWatch [iTunes link] has been spotted mentioning Retina graphics in a recent update, and while Apple is yet to confirm that the new computers - expected to make their debut at WWDC 2012 next week - will indeed follow the new iPad with a high-resolution display, it's nonetheless looking increasingly likely.

Apple developers out-weigh Android in pre-WWDC Flurry report

Apple developers out-weigh Android in pre-WWDC Flurry report

It appears that in the war between Google's Android and Apple's iOS there's a whole heck of a lot more people excited to get in on WWDC than there are to hang out at Google I/O, so says Flurry Analytics. In their most recent report, Flurry begins by noting that they are tracking 500 million devices and 36 billion anonymous end user sessions a month, and from this they've shown that each month the amount of new project starts growing a giant way, but much more for Apple than it does for Android.
