New iPhone announcement a fair bet on June 7


Apple has announced that its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will be held on June 7-11. The significance? New iPhones traditionally debut at WWDC.

This years WWDC will be held at the usual venue - the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Over 1000 Apple engineers and 5000 developers are expected to attend.

The agenda covers Mac OS X and iPhone OS (including iPad-specific sessions), with tracks on application frameworks, core OS, developer tools, graphics and media, and Internet and web.

"This year's WWDC offers developers in-depth sessions and hands-on working labs to learn more about iPhone OS 4, the world's most advanced mobile operating system," said Scott Forstall, Apple's senior vice president of iPhone software.

"WDC provides a unique opportunity for developers to work side-by-side with Apple engineers and interface designers to make their iPhone and iPad apps even better," he added.

WWDC registration costs $US1599.

Interestingly, this year's Apple Design Awards - presented at the conference - are only open to iPhone and iPad apps. In the past, Mac OS X products have also been eligible.

But what about the iPhone? Please read on.

It seems practically certain that the highlight of WWDC 2010 will be the announcement of this year's iPhone.

What appeared to be a sample of the so-called iPhone 4G was purportedly found in a Silicon Valley bar and ended up in the hands of Gizmodo, which reported it had a front-facing camera, an improved main camera (with flash), micro SIM, "seemingly higher resolution" display, and a secondary microphone for noise cancellation.

The styling takes cues from the current iPhone and iMac models.

We'll find out in a little over five weeks whether this really was the next iPhone. But one thing's practically certain - Gizmodo spilling the beans won't result in less media coverage of the new iPhone.
