No doubts, people has too many expectations from Apple on this WWDC 2013, and therefore to make things better we have compiled a list of products and services that are said to be coming or may surely come at WWDC 2013.
iOS 7 (Flattened and Elegant)
Apple has already confirmed the preview of iOS 7 at WWDC 2013, and rumor mill also added lot of spice in iOS 7 arrival in the market. Different reports have suggested that Apple is bringing a new user-interface to iOS devices with iOS 7, and will remove all the old-age textures of iOS that were supported by Scott Forstall. iOS 7 is reportedly featuring an elegant, and flattened user-interface with a color combination of black and white all over the screen.
OS X 10.9 (More Unified)
OS X 10.9 development is in works from last couple of months, and we have seen Apple dedicating time to OS X 10.9 in order to make it ready before the time. Lately, we have also learned that Apple stopped OS X 10.9 development to finish iOS 7 new user-interface till WWDC 2013.
The latest OS X 10.9 is said to be gaining more iOS features for Mac OS devices, and machines. It will bring more unified features such as last time it got Notification Center, and deep social integration for desktop users.
Update for iTunes, XCode, iCloud Control Panel
Without any doubts, Apple will be seeding an update to its iTunes software, along with a major update to XCode – developer program to allow third party developers to build their applications for upcoming iOS 7 and OS X 10.9. The iCloud Control Panel will also receive a major update from Apple, because last year we have seen Apple betting more time into iCloud Sync for iOS devices with other devices. It will allow Apple to roll out more specific features.
AirDrop for iOS
AirDrop is a very handy service for Mac OS devices, and last year rumors also suggested that Apple will bring the same service for iPhone and iPad devices. Transferring files on iPhone and iPad devices is such a big pain in ass for everyone on iOS platform. AirDrop for iOS will be an awesome service for everyone that will allow users to easily share files from one device to another device without opening the whole platform to different vulnerabilities.
It has been rumored several times that Apple is working on a music streaming service for iPhone and iPad devices, and the service is said to be dubbed as ‘iRadio’. Yesterday, we have learned that Apple has inked deal with Sony Music, and all other big music distributors to bring iRadio service in real time for iPhone and iPad devices.
Well, Well, and Well! Rumors are crazy! Apple is once again expected to introduce its wristwatch product in the public. Apple is indeed working on an iWatch product to enhance the wearable computers industry, but we are not sure whether they will introduce anything or not. In a recent interview of Tim Cook reveals lot of information about iWatch.
Apple has already ditched the original time cycle of releasing an update to iPad devices, and people are going mad to learn about latest iPad 5 launch. Several reports have confirmed that Apple may release it at WWDC 2013, and some reported that Apple will host another media event to introduce iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2 without Retina at the moment.
Mac Pro line deserves an update from Apple. A long time ago, since we have seen Apple working on Mac Pro product line. Mac desktop users are little frustrated on Apple for not bringing latest update to Mac Pro devices. But a little chat with Mac Pro product manager revealed that Apple is bringing something really different this year. There are words that Apple may introduce Mac Pro 2013 at WWDC 2013.
