My Apple Announcement Predictions

It's Almost Here

The invatation from Apple says “it’s almost here.”The Yerba Buena center in San Francisco  is decorated. The big announcement from Apple will take place on Wednesday. So, I’ll take a stab at predicting what we will see on stage.

Using the invatation and the Yerba Buena center’s decorations a guide I think we’ll see 5 things, and they are all iOS.

  1. iOS 6 (I know big shocker) Included here, however is any new additions to iCloud functionality that will be announced for the rest of this year. Like a new streaming service, etc, et. al.
  2. the new iPhone. I think the 6th generation of the iPhone will be named “the new iPhone.” and it will be the elongated form factor with a larger screen that is circulating on the internets. Like this one
  3. a new iPod Touch. Since, I expect form factor change in the iPhone Then, I expect at minimum a refresh of the the current iPod Touch model. Possibly a redesign for iPod Touch as well(although I’m not expecting this.)
  4. Refresh of  iPod Nano (possibly running a version of iOS)
  5. tv runs iOS 6

I do not think there will be an announcement of a the so called “iPad mini” or a full blown tv unless it is a teaser. Unless Tim Cook says “One more thing.” I do not expect to see a new product from Apple. I think if they mention a new product it will be to direct attention to a product specific launch event. Further, I don’t think we see an “iPad mini” until we see the next generation of iPad. I don’t think we see an full grown tv until Apple can revolutionize content delivery. But, I’m also secretly hoping that I am wrong.

I’ll post post an update after the announcement to see just how accurate I was.
