Tablet, iPhone OS 4.0, iLife 2010 'confirmed' for Apple event - report

post #1 of 225
Thread Starter 
A new report Monday from FoxNews.com cites an anonymous source to claim Apple will introduce its tablet, "iPhone 4" and iLife 2010 at next week's event.

Clayton Morris said the event will focus on the three products, but new iPhone hardware will not be introduced. However, he said, iPhone OS 4.0 (which he referred to as "iPhone 4") will be a part of the proceedings.

"I spoke to a source at Apple this morning, before the invite hit my inbox, who said the event would likely focus on three projects: The tablet device, iPhone 4, and a new round of iLife 2010 software," Morris wrote. "While we won't see new iPhone hardware just yet, we will see the next-generation software."

Morris went on to offer a caveat that Apple sometimes changes its mind about what products to introduce at the last minute. He noted last September's iPod unveiling, when a new iPod touch was introduced without a camera due to rumored technical issues. Sources have told AppleInsider that the company still intends to add a camera to a future iPod touch.

The report also follows a rumor from earlier this month that Apple could ship a multi-touch version of iWork when the tablet debuts. It was not said whether iLife 2010 would be available for the tablet.

Earlier Monday, Apple sent out invitations to the event at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. The company used the tagline "Come see our latest creation" to invite select members of the press. The included graphic has the Apple logo surrounded by colorful paint splatters. The event is scheduled for 10 a.m. Pacific time.

Last month, select developers were allegedly asked to prepare full-screen demos of their iPhone applications for a public unveiling. Reports have said that some have been working with a new software development kit, iPhone OS 4.0, that includes a "simulator" that aims to make it easy for developers to adapt their software to different screen resolutions.

Late last month, Morris also corroborated early rumors that Apple would hold an event in late January. That report and the initial news from the Financial Times were off by one day in their claims, stating the event would be held Jan. 26.

Wouldn't be surprising to see a special touch version of iLife on the tablet.

Then a demo or iPhone 4 with some snippets of the tablet software built into it.

I'm gonna pretend I didn't see this.

Because we all know the iTablet/Slate is an imaginary product.

Move along folks, nothing to see here.

I think we're going to see the introduction of a painting program for iLife.

I dunno, the iLife part of the rumour makes no sense to me. iLife was only jsut updated for starters, and if there was a painting app added, it would be added to iWork, not iLife. iWork is also in need of an update to run on the tablet.

Code the hell out of it! Push it's capabilities to the max!

I really hope Apple has loaded this creature up with as many sensors as possible.

With the news of iLife '10, I'm really hoping 2 things happen with this:

1 - Tablet/touch version of iPhoto

2 - Apple is smart enough to realize that while the tablet is not in use, it could be propped on a custom easel and serve as a perfect Digital Picture Frame linked through iPhoto while charging.

It's perfectly ok to critique the source!

Has this ever happened before: That somebody leaked exactly which announcements will be made? I don't believe it. Because the source is bad and because this has never happened before.

A painting program seems to fit in with the likes of iMovie and GarageBand just fine. iWork should be on the tablet, but it should be it's own version, not an updated desktop version (especially considering the most likely OS).

For us tech watchers I think it's almost obvious at this point that if it will indeed carry iWork then it will most likely be a special custom version and not something that resembles a desktop app.

Just a hunch.

I have a feeling that iLfe '10 will work on the tablet.

I'd bet money the next version of iLife is gonna be "iLife X" and then "iWork X".
post #19 of 225
They wouldn't introduce iLife 10 at the same time as the Tablet unless it was a special touch version, else it would just distract from the main event. But then, that makes me wonder what sized screen it has, if it is for serious work I mean.
post #20 of 225
I think the key thing for iLife or iWork is to make them able to produce content for the new tablet and next gen iPhone. I think this is likely to be based on the same standards as TuneKit for iTunes LP and Extras. Hopefully this will also bring greater interactivity to website that don't use flash.
While iPhone has all been about apps maybe the tablet will be as much about interactive content with apple making authoring easy with iLife.

I thought the current versions of iWork and iLife were both introduced January last year.

A graphic application could fit into iWork or iLife. Blueprint for iWork or iPaint for iLife. But do think that other than that, there isn't much in iLife that lends itself to the tablet. iMovie? I think not or it would be very limited. Movies need processing power and storage space. iPhoto? Maybe. iWeb? A little more possible. iDVD? Without an optical drive what would be the point? You'd still need processing power for that anyway. But Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, and (Blueprint?) with connectivity to iWork.com? Now we're talking!

Either way, I think both suites do need to be updated not just to run on the tablet, but because it's the time of the year when new versions get introduced plus they need to at least be released as 64 bit applications on the Mac. Or at least, I would really like that.

"Distract?" Really?

Is it?

Well, I'm still waiting for the "critique" or anything resembling a "critical discussion" or "analysis of".

Instead what I read was a sarcastic, childish insult.

Maybe if the story broke on Olberman the OP might not get so tight in the panties over it, hmm?

I will be disappointed if they don't announce a rev to the MacBook Pros. I'm in the market, but I don't want to pull the trigger with release cycle tradition suggesting they'll be updated.

I somehow doubt the tablet will perform the same functions as a MBP, so I don't think it'll serve to replace it.

Tablet = March-ish
iPhone OS 4 = June-ish

They need to give us *something* this month. I say rev the specs on the MBs.
New MacBook Pros next Tuesday!

Oh... I like the implications of that!

1) runs on Mac, Tablet, iPod Touch/iPhone (newer devices)

2) use touch devices with non-touch Macs

3) included with purchase of device (iLife) or minimal add-on (iWork)

4) update cycle changed from annual to feature-related

5) available through app store

Isn't it funny how they can't help but inject their ideology into every aspect of everything they do/see/read/hear? I am amazed that the mere mention of Fox causes so many of them to begin blurting noises and puffing about like a bunch of territorially-challenged chimpanzees.

Could be. Just seems a bit strange to me. As has already been pointed out, iWork is a better fit for the tablet and necessary for it's function, iLife, not so much. Also, paint apps are traditionally included in suites like iWork and iWork is the modern incarnation of AppleWorks which had a paint program, and said paint program is the only thing "missing" from iWork as a traditional suite of apps.

That being said Apple is not such a traditional company, so who knows. Just seems odd to re-do iLife or to clutter up the tablet announcement with an extraneous thing like that. You'd think with the tablet being announced that the focus would be totally on the tablet and things that make it a good buy or useful, i.e. - iWork, not iLife.

No iSlate or Tablet.

Larger iPod Touch and iPhone, color plastic backing, more storage, optional stylus.

Mac updates with newer processors.

Nothing would distract from the main event. That is why it is the main event... Any other product announcements will be temporarily forgotten after the tablet announcement though.

"Serious" work? I guess by serious you mean laptop or desktop. My guess is that your right the tablet will most likely run a version of iwork. But I'm not sure it will be as powerful as a laptop or desktop.

We're going to find out whats what real soon though.

Funny, I trust Fox more than the others because they're not afraid to talk bad about their owners if they have to.
But, for gawd's sake please lets talk about the tablet hmm?

So what is the link between the new device, iLife and iPhone OS 4? Would Apple do a special event like this to launch three disparate products? Doesn't seem very elegant to me. They should probably all tie together somehow.

Do you think they will just demo iPhone OS 4.0 or release it to the general public?

Perhaps there is an iLife version for the tablet.
