We can?t wait to get new versions of iOS and OS X into their hands at WWDC."

In addition to technical sessions, the event will also include hands-on labs aimed at helping developers to integrate new technologies. The conference will also host the annual Apple Design Awards, which showcase some of the most outstanding applications available on the iOS and Mac App Stores.

The full list of activities at the 2013 conference, according to Apple, will include:
  • More than 100 technical sessions presented by Apple engineers on a wide range of topics for developing, deploying and integrating the latest iOS and OS X technologies
  • More than 1,000 Apple engineers supporting over 100 hands-on labs and events to provide developers with code-level assistance, insight into optimal development techniques and guidance on how they can make the most of iOS and OS X technologies in their apps

    Great! At least something new - although, it is seems it will 'only' be the expected new.

    oooo .... news of Mac Pro. Start the rumor mills now! Surely there are some manufacturers breaking NDAs and photocopying plans, photographing parts or checking increases in orders for 52 core CPUs and matter transfer coils? Why is it the only espionage and leaking seems to be about iPhones and iPads these days ... sigh.

    I certainly hope so. Obviously, everything is getting colourful and translucent.


    But seriously: I much more appreciate WWDC logo design analysis than talking too much about legal issues, Samsung, Windows, etc. I'm not against it, but primarily I enjoy to discuss news from Apple here - Apple products.

    That's got to be a yes. I assume we will see the start of the Jonification of OSX.

    "Obviously OS X is going to change every application's icon into a rounded square."


     


    Seriously, if they do that, it's going to infuriate me. It works for fingertip-sized systems, but you lose so much character that way.


     


    "The thin font means the MacBook Air will be center stage."


     


    Despite it being a developer conference and having nothing to do with the MacBook Air.


     


    Ah, wait a minute now…


     



     


    A new Core Framework, perhaps? I know I've missed some, but those don't have icons. Or do they?

    Who cares. I'm tired of iOS and its in unchanging since 2008. Switching to the S4 when my contract is up next month.

    I thought announcing WWDC today might help the stock a but but no it's down 3% pre-market. Clearly this is Wall Street saying Tim Cook sucks. Jim Cramer on CNBC called yesterday's conference call a "train wreck". And all they did the first 10 minutes of Squak on the Street was bash Apple management. Sigh. :\

    Guys,


     


    I compared the same AI article on WWDC 2012 announcement and this one.


     


    This year has one more bullet point of activity:


     


    The latest innovations, features and capabilities of iOS and OS X, and how to enhance an app's functionality, performance, quality and design


     


    Maybe we will see something different this year.

    Have they pre-announced ticket sales in the past? I seem to remember just waking up one day last year and finding out they were already sold out.

    Quality and design ... We will see Jony Ive's hand, particularly pertaining to iOS. The word on the street is that it will blow people away.

    If you turn your head clockwise to the left and look at overlapping D and C in WWDC... it's a human with zigzag legs. image
