Apple: WWDC planned for June 7, just in time for the new iPhone?
April 30th, 2010 - 10:20 am ET by C. D.
Apple’s WWDC 2010 developer’s conference will commence on the 7th of June. Will this be where the next iPhone is released?
Apple has released dates for their next WWDC 2010 conference (World Wide Developers Conference) which will take place in San Francisco between the 7th and 11th of June. This may be where we hear more about the iPhone OS 4 and iPad tablet, with the introduction keynote speech having previously been used to announce a new iPhone.
It is therefore quite likely that such an announcement will be forward coming on the 7th of June, assuming that the recent iPhone saga where a prototype lost in a San Francisco bar which was then on sold to Gizmodo doesn’t disrupt the calendar. The outcome to soon be known If you are to believe the published photos, the new iPhone will break with the traditional rounded design which has been used on the previous three versions, instead sporting a more squared look which has no doubt been done to host a bigger capacity battery.
Besides the external characteristics, very few details are known besides the fact that the screen resolution appears to have been improved and the digital camera integrates a more powerful lens. Its launch should also open the way for the iPhone 3G/3GS and iPod Touch to be upgraded to iPhone OS 4.
