It seems impossible to think it would happen, but a few hours ago we were facing the prospect of a WWDC 2011 event without the announcement of the iPhone 5, the device which many of you had taken for granted would be the main eventer for Apple’s annual event in San Francisco.
We want to talk a bit more about that now, as although it hasn’t been confirmed that there won’t be any new hardware at the event, the program notes from Apple confirmed that the main areas of interest will be focusing on iOS and Mac OS X.
If you cast your minds back to last year, you’ll remember that Steve Jobs took to the stage at WWDC 2010 and officially announced the iPhone 4 to the world, along with the name change of OS to iOS. It is strange to think that we won’t see any hardware at this years event, perhaps Apple are just trying to throw us off guard to build up anticipation even further?
There is specualtion growing that Apple will now announce the iPhone 5 at their fall event instead, and just stick to software at WWDC 2011. Dare we say it though – it will be pretty disappointing if they do. We want an iPhone 5 this Summer Apple, don’t let us down.
