WWDC 2013 iOS 7: “polarizing” features coming up

WWDC 2013 iOS 7: “polarizing” features coming up

Last year at around this time, it wasn't exactly clear what Apple would be revealing inside iOS 6. It wasn't exactly a secret, either. Here on the eve of WWDC 2013, Apple has created a bit of an information vacuum surrounding their next-generation mobile operating system.

WWDC 2013 liveblog reminder: SlashGear will be here at 10AM PST!

Apple's big WWDC 2013 keynote will be starting at 10AM PST tomorrow morning (that's June 10th, if you did not know), and SlashGear will be bringing a liveblog to you straight from inside the Moscone Center.

WWDC 2013 iOS 7 expectations: 8 features we’ll be waiting for

WWDC 2013 iOS 7 expectations: 8 features we’ll be waiting for

WWDC is coming up quick, folks. On Monday, we’d like to think that Apple will be announcing some new products, including some new MacBooks, a possible iRadio announcement, and maybe a Mac Pro refresh. However, something we’re almost certain about is an iOS 7 unveil, thanks to getting a peek at the banners at Moscone West before WWDC kicks off. I’ve spent a lot of time with iOS, and while I mostly love the user interface, design, and apps, there are several features that are downright annoying that Apple needs to fix in iOS 7.

WWDC 2013 Hardware Expectations: MacBook Air, Retina Pro, Mac Pro refresh

Monday will be the day that Apple brings its yearly developers conference to the city of San Francisco once again, with plenty of software updates in the wings: but what about hardware? Here in the week before WWDC 2013, several devices have been tipped or otherwise leaked, with upgrades and refreshes of devices we've seen in the past looking to be the stars of the main event keynote. This will mirror last years' event in which several notebooks were given upgrades and the Mac Pro was given a boost behind the scenes.

WWDC 2013: what you WON’T be seeing

WWDC 2013: what you WON’T be seeing

Starting Monday, Apple's 2013 iteration of their developers convention WWDC begins in San Francisco - and there's a lot you'll not be seeing. It's not that there'll be a lot of information under the skin and behind closed doors, that's not what this is all about. Instead, it's all about what's still in the wings at Apple, what's not quite ready to be released, and what will never, ever be released, especially not next week.

MacBook Pro Retina reboot tipped with slimmer design and 1080p camera

It's probably a good bet that we'll see MacBook refreshes at WWDC this year, including an update to Intel Haswell chips in all of the machines. However, it's rumored that we'll also see a slimmer MacBook Pro Retina model, as well as a better FaceTime camera, possibly boosting it up to full 1080p.

WWDC 2013 software expectations: iOS 7 and OS X 10.9 simplified

WWDC 2013 software expectations: iOS 7 and OS X 10.9 simplified

As WWDC approaches, the suggestion that Jony Ive's assignment on iOS over the past collection of months grows stronger. Here just days away from Apple's yearly developers conference, the company has been so clear as to post an ultra-flat banner with the number "7" in the center of it after their flat integration invite. Could it all be so simple at last?

iOS 7 gets flat with Apple banner at WWDC [UPDATE: OS X]

iOS 7 gets flat with Apple banner at WWDC [UPDATE: OS X]

Just days away from the start of the multi-day event, Apple has begun to decorate the Moscone Center West in San Francisco for its yearly developers conference WWDC. This year's first banner appears to bring iOS 7 to the mix with a clear and present - and massive - number 7 in rainbow-colored font. Though it's difficult to tell at the moment with so little to go on, this may be indicative of a "flattening" going on in the aesthetic presentation of the mobile software.

Mac Pro refresh to be “something really different”

We've already been hearing a bit of chatter about a possible Mac Pro refresh coming to WWDC next week. Inventory has been dwindling at various retail locations, and that usually means new models are incoming. Furthermore, it's said that an Apple project manager responsible for the Mac Pro mentioned that an updated model is coming later this year, and it'll supposedly blow your mind.

MacBook refresh incoming at WWDC as new SKUs leak

At last year's opening keynote during WWDC 2012, Apple introduced a refreshed line of Macs, so it would make sense for the company to do the same this year, and it seems that's exactly what's going to happen. According to a set of leaked SKUs, Apple has plans to refresh at least one of its MacBook lines with new models.
