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!

This event's contents have been teased more than any other event the entire year thus far, without a doubt, and now that we're less than an hour away from the opening of the final curtains, there's nothing more important than getting YOU set up to get in tune with the news as it explodes! First you're going to need to be in tune with our [WWDC 2012 portal] for the full low-down on every single news blip as it arrives. For up-to-the-second coverage of the event you'll want to head to our http://live.slashgear.com/ page to see Live updates from the event room – we've also got photos coming in as they're photographed as well!

If all the rumors are true, we'll be seeing a new MacBook Pro range, a refreshed MacBook Pro Classic range, a Mac Pro tower (FINALLY) updated from its 2010 iteration, a new version of iOS, and maybe some Apple Maps. This event will very likely be splitting time between hardware and software, this bringing on excitement from not only the mobile world, as it was last year, but the desktop world as well! Stay tuned and get pumped up!
