It might be unlikely, but I do hope they'll announce a new Mac Mini! A Server model with Ivy Bridge would be sweet.

It might just be a silent update then.

Here's hoping they release the new MacBook Pro on June 11.

Definitely! I'm holding out on my 13" MBP purchase until after this event. Hopefully they don't disappoint.

I'm actually intrigued to find out what they're going to fit into their keynote timeframe. Here's my best guess and I don't see anything to talk about (for WWDC) beyond these:

1) Hardware refresh: MacBook Pro, iMac (and Mac Pro if they're not dropping it)

2) Mountain Lion

One last thing: iOS 6 preview.

Apart from the fact it won't be called iPhone 5 - yes, too soon.

Fall release for sure, which goes nicely with my contract renewal haha.

This time I'll be a day 1 adopter :laugh:

I'd put my money on the same things.

Giving so much attention to a Mac hardware refresh and reducing iOS 6 to a mere "one more thing" wouldn't make any sense whatsoever during what's essentially a software development summit. Unless upcoming hardware features a dramatic change that directly impacts future OS X development.

WWDC revolves around OS X and iOS.

Yeah, expect iOS and OS X to get top billing. I mean the sub heading for the event is "The latest technologies in iOS and OS X".

I didn't specify a duration, they could be merely spending 20-30 minutes on it. Besides if rumors are true that OSX is going "retina", software developers will need to be considering upscaling their applications for the display or resolution-independence, which is pretty significant I think.

I heard a rumor that they will announce the iPhone 5. The new iPhone will come with an anti-gravitational device. The anti-gravitational device will be used along the new Maps technology acquired from C3 Technologies to fly the user to any point in the map. The customer is advised to carry an extra battery just in case the phone runs out of juice mid-way.

The iPhone 6 will further enhance this technology by having a matter scanner built-in. The scanner will allow a person to be encoded into a stream of bits that can be used by any other iPhone user to decode the stream resulting in the customer materializing at the other side. The hardware is still in beta because Apple has not figured out how to encode the sending phone along with the user. They are advising alpha testers to always use this feature on a couch so that the phone can finish transmitting the stream when it falls on the couch.

Edited for spelling

Like I said dedicating up to half an hour to Mac hardware wouldn't make much sense during a software summit. Apple doesn't have to talk about specific hardware to address retina screens since support is an integral part of OS X so they can just mention that.

Apple can always have a new keynote in the upcoming months for hardware (if changes are big enough), which is what they mostly did in the past. But who knows there's a new wind blowing through the company. In any case I'd be disappointed if they spend a lot of time (which half an hour is) on Mac hardware.

I can't wait to see the iOS6 preview.

Agree with everyone else, it will be focusing on OSX Mountain Lion and new Macbook/iMac refresh

Missed WWDC 2006?

21 minuts of hardware talk only and 10 of them Mac Pro introduction.

They've done it before. ;)

They might touch on this at WWDC, alongside possible hardware updates.

WWDC 06 was before iPhone/iPad/iOS existed. They have a lot more to talk about now.

Going to be updating my MBP this time round, I can't justify buying the current generation, when the next is so close (1-3 months) :D And as for iPhone being announced, there has been leaks this week, but I'm not certain if they're going to reveal details about the next iPhone, but we'll definitely see iOS 6. (also hoping for some hidden Mountain Lion features).

The keynote is a hour and a half and I think it'll be mostly focused on Mountain Lion & iOS 6.

That might be the most exciting thing. Though if Apple is not revealing anything iPhone 5 related whats the point to do it now when they can do that with the announcement of the new iphone?
