News tagged ‘WWDC’
iPhone 5, when we will see it? This is one of the most frequent questions we're being asked these days.
Many useres want a new phone and don't want to get the current iPhone 4S if the next generation iPhone 5 (or whatever Apple decides to call it) is right around the corner.
In the past for the first four years of the iPhone's existence, Apple announced the release dates at their annual World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) and shipped shortly thereafter. The original iPhone shipped on June 29, 2007. The iPhone 3G on July 11, 2008. The iPhone 3GS shipped on June 8, 2009. The iPhone 4 shipped on June 24, 2010.
Apple announced that it will hold its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) June 11 through June 15 at San Francisco’s Moscone West. Tickets were sold out in just two hours ($1,599 each).
At this year’s five-day conference, developers will learn about the future of iOS and OS X, allowing them to build incredible new apps. WWDC will also feature more than 100 technical sessions presented by Apple engineers as well as the popular Apple Design Awards, a showcase of the most outstanding apps from the past year.
Activities at Apple’s WWDC 2012 include:
Last week we reported that Foxconn was gearing up for production of the rumoured iPhone 5 with the likely launch set for summer. Today, the Commercial Times citing the report from Daiwa Securities analysts has reported that the iPhone 5 is expected to launch at Apple's Worldwide Developer's Conference (WWDC) to be held in June 2012. The official dates for the 2012 conference have not yet been announced, but a previously leaked guide suggested June 10th-15th as the likely dates. Now they are blocked off for a "Corporate Meeting" which typically acts as a placeholder for WWDC.
Daiwa Securities also claims that the next-generation smartphone will continue utilizing "glass to glass" touch panel technology.
The iPhone 5 will continue to utilize glass to glass (G/G) touch panel technology, which will benefit current touch panel suppliers TPK Holding and Wintek, the paper quoted the securities house as saying.
The summer launch claim is not new and has been echoed in previous reports. So this may be just another one rumor. Apple broke from tradition with the iPhone 4S by launching it in October of 2011. A significant change from the previous four generations of iPhone, which were released at or around WWDC in June.
An hour ago Apple's Board of Directors released a statement in which it is said that company co-founder and longtime CEO has passed away.
Here's how Steve Jobs describes his vision for iCloud during his Q&A session with developers at WWDC 1997.
In the The Wall Street Journal’s article about Intel investing $300 million on developing "Ultrabook" platform, an Intel executive
According to Japanese site
DigiTimes today reports that Apple has placed an order for 15 million iPhone 5 devices with Pegatron Technology and those devices will start shipping in September 2011.
The sources pointed out that as the iPhone 5, which does not seem to have any major update from iPhone 4, is already set for shipment in September, they are already started supplying components to Pegatron with Pegatron's plants in Shanghai, China also recently started hiring for manpower.
DigiTime is a quite reliable source. They already predicted that Pegatron received an order for the CDMA iPhone 4. Moreover, Apple this year does not follow its yearly upgrade cycle, not making any announcement concerning iPhone 5 at this year's WWDC.
Asymco analyzed recently announced numbers like the total number of songs, movies, TV shows, apps, download rate, iTunes accounts and how much Apple has paid out to developers. They put these numbers in a complex formula and estimated that Apple's monthly content margin cost for iTunes at $113 million, which is more than $1.3 billion per year.
That's a lot. It looks like all the iTunes profits go right back into its maintenance and expansion.
