An event that used to be lightly attended has now become the most popular developers conference in the world and sold out within 2 hours this years.

Here’s a look at the banner images of WWDC over the past 10 years.

ios6-3dmap-1

BGR just posted images of Apple’s iOS 6 Maps app with 3D mapping. This is just a mockup, because most of the real photos their source was able to capture were blurry.

Apple is reportedly testing its 3D technology in build 10A314 of iOS 6. The renderings are quite accurate, from what the sources say. From what we've heard the 3D icon only exists on the iPad version.

‘New’ iPad 2,4 Uses 32nm A5 Instead Of 45nm A5 Found In iPad 2



46025-1

Anand Tech reported on a detail in the new iPad 2 model that many have overlooked. When Apple launched the iPad 3 with Retina display and A5X chip, the company also released the iPad 2,4 model, which is almost identical to the iPad 2. However in this model Apple replaced a 45nm A5 processor with a 32nm A5. This is the most efficient Apple’s processor and its 32nm die size is likely to be used in the next iPhone’s processor. The same 32nm A5 processor is used in the 1080P Apple TV, however it is limited to a single core.

Jony Ive Discusses Apple's Creative Design Processes



Jonathan-Ive

Apple design chief Jony Ive in an interview to the London Evening Standard revealed how the design process works at Apple. Ive told that prototyping is deeply integrated into the design process at Apple, and discussed Apple’s approach to creating entirely new categories of products rather than simply improving on existing ones.

Q: What makes design different at Apple?

A: We struggle with the right words to describe the design process at  Apple, but it is very much about designing and prototyping and making. When you separate those, I think the final result suffers. If something is going to be better, it is new, and if it’s new you are confronting problems and challenges you don’t have references for. To solve and address those requires a remarkable focus. There’s a sense of being inquisitive and optimistic, and you don’t see those in combination very often.
