This years WWDC conference has been announced and sold out in under 2 hours.
So what will we see?
My predictions: Full version of mountain lion ios6 preview. And some iCloud upgrades

What's everyone else think they'll see?

You beat me to it JZ.

Definitely the new iPhone.... Can't wait!!!

And seeing as though the Ivy Bridge processors have just been announced, they will announce a whole new range of iMacs, MacBook Airs and MacBook Pros!

And yes, iOS 6 and Mountain Lion full previews!!

June can't come soon enough!!!!

For $25 per year Apple will take all your bookmarks and "match" them in a new service called "Bookmarks Match" aimed at ensuring all bookmarks are up to date. Any bookmark not visited in the last twelve months will be automatically deleted.

You heard it here first folks!

Cheers,

LOL, Pete you crack me up.

Anyway new iMacs, New Mac Pro (maybe) new macbook pro, which will be renamed macbook pro air ( or something along those lines) more info on Mountain lion.

But you will NOT see a new iPhone, way to early, check back in September for that one.

O and PS if you want to attend WWDC2012 there is a guy selling tickets on Ebay for US$2850.00, so be quick :mosking:

Definitely the iPhone will be previewed.

Or maybe it will get a special event of its own later on. I'm hoping not though.

i don't think we'll see any hardware.

it's the developers conference - i know they used announce hardware here but last year they went back to what it was meant for plus see this quote from Phil Schiller

"We have a great WWDC planned this year and can't wait to share the latest news about iOS and OS X Mountain Lion with developers," said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. "The iOS platform has created an entirely new industry with fantastic opportunities for developers across the country and around the world."

I agree with Jamie. This will be strictly a software event. Macs won't get a press event unless there's a radical redesign and the iPhone will hit around September. With annual iOS and OSX release schedules, that's enough.

But Brian, without Apple software we'd be trying to sync our Android iPhones with our Win 95 iMacs.

Surely when the big announcement is made that Sergio, Son of Siri is coming to OSX, and for the next half a dozen months or so Siri will be suffering a hormone imbalance so please be patient with her during her confinement.... surely then you can get excited!

What purpose will Sergio serve do you think?

If the TV set is real it deserves it's own mega event. If it's not AAAAAWESOOOOOME (particularly the UI) they're better forgetting it altogether.
