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.
- 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.
- 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
- 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.)
- Refresh of iPod Nano (possibly running a version of iOS)
- 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.
