Judging by this from Gizmodo, it seems like Apple will hold their WWDC in San Francisco June 5th to June 9th.

According to their normal yearly time schedule we will most likely see their next iPhone revealed. Possibly also Lion OS?

I don't use MACS and never would. Windows 7 owns. I do, however, love me iPhone 4. But I'll be waiting for 6. Since that's my contract.


Unless I go android. Also a possibility.

A new iPhone is announced every year in June. Always. OS X Lion was announced at the last Apple event. I imagine it will be mostly about the iPhone and iPad 2.

I don't think they'll change much about the iPhone. Maybe announce a new update to iOS 4, a faster, newer CPU, and that's about it.

If we're lucky, maybe we'll see something about a new Macbook lineup.

That's what I'm thinking. It'll be a 3 to 3GS type affair.

But I think at least I'll upgrade to the next iPhone if there's sufficient reason to

The iPad doesn't interest me at all. It'd be worth £150 at the most to me.

The iPhone 5 however, does interest me. I can get a new phone in September according to Orange, so I'll most likely go for one of them.

I got some advert thingie in the mail today, and it told me I could win an iPad. My first thought was: "Okay, what the hell would I actually use that for?"

Frankly, I'd probably sell it.


...And then I said; Oatmeal, are you CRAZY?!

The iPhone 5 will have Apple's new A5 processor which is faster than the current A4 in the iPhone 4 and it is also a multi-core processor. The 5 will also get a dual core GPU which will increase it's performance for games and video (Possibly even make it able to output 1080p to a tv). They also apparently will be changing the way it looks after the problem with the antenna last year, possibly moving it to behind the Apple logo on the rear of the phone. The screen will be increases from 3.5" to 3.7" and there are also rumours that they want to get rid of the home button but I doubt this will happen on the 5. And with the increased GPU power the phone would be able to record 1080p video (up from 720p on the 4) but the camera would need to be upgraded to a 8MP camera.

Excuse my ignorance, but what's the problem with having the antenna at the top of the phone? Say, next to the headphone jack... surely putting it anywhere but the top will cause some sort of interference?

So they're gonna place the antenna in a position where it will still be covered by a hand and possibly have the same problems?

I agree with James, they should just have it at the top, and stop trying to be creative in a way that renders it useless.

An antennae, any antennae, only needs so much surface area in order to transmit/recieve. The cellular wavelengths we're into these days are short enough that you needn't have your antennae right at the top. The IPhone's antennae for example, is a structural piece of the phone. But nay, you no longer need an external antennae.

The problem with the antenna wasn't the location. It was that Apple did nothing to prevent the hand from directly touching the antenna. If they would've put a super-thin layer of coating on the band none of the antenna problems would exist.

It'll probably have NFC too (Near Field Communication). And of course Apple will claim that this is the next, new, awesomely fantastic thing that they invented. Just don't mention it's already available, but at least you won't be able to shout it as loud as Apple will.

Couldn't really care less about the 5, apart from the fact that it will piss off a lot of 4 owners, which is always a bonus. I can honestly say I will never own one, and have no interest to. OS X Lion I'd be more interested in, their OS's are always slightly less offensive to me than the whole iPhone thing.

Just curious. What offends you so much about the phones? I'm curious because I spent 3 years making fun of iPhone folks until I got one last August. Now I hardly put it down, sadly. (this makes me both a hypocrite and a convert)

I totally get it, whatever your reasons are. I'm just curious. Also,...are you an android or 7 person? Or anti-smartphone all together?

You hit the nail on the head for pretty much all Apple haters. Until they get one and see how good they are then change their tune. Obviously not the case for all people as some will have some genuine issue with them but in my experience the people i've met who moan about Apple products are people who can't afford them.

Hypocrite

If anything, I'd be Android - I currently have one, and have coded in Android pretty extensively. But I'm not a massive fanboy of theirs or anything, there's faults in all. Would like to try out the 7 phones to see what they're like. I don't know exactly what makes me hate the iPhone, but I just have a general hate for Apple. I have used iPhones before, and own an iPod touch (hypocricy!) so have used iOS pretty extensively. I guess I just don't see what all the fuss is about. I know plenty of iPhone zealots who will go on about how amazing the units are to the exception of all others, and most of the time it's all bollocks. I'm not saying it's a bad piece of kit - it's always been good. But that's just it, they're good. They're not the groundbreaking pieces of kit that Apple believe they are. To be honest, once my contract runs out, I probably won't invest in any new smartphone unless one really impresses me.

So to answer your question - elitism, randomness and hate of Apple

@RandomJ - for the most part, I can sort of agree. I bought OS X and enjoyed it, and certainly enjoyed how it was only £25 compared to the £150 for Windows 7. And I would probably consider buying a MacBook if I had the justification for spending up to 2 grand on a laptop (could afford, but...why?). My iPod is...alright. Did really enjoy it, but it's starting to grate at times, plenty of things going wrong, little design features I don't like. The iPhone is something I've never got into, having used it before, and I doubt I ever will.

I never had a smartphone until me and the wife decided to get a pair of 4's. I'm gone a lot so facetime was a big attraction. I didn't know at the time that lots of phones could do video conferencing. And love them or hate them, you must admit that Apple does marketing better than anyone. Convincing the naive like me that they've totally invented something that's been around for two or three years already, or even longer in Europe and Asia. But I do love the phone, and the improvements on this summer's model will not be enough to make me want the new one immediately. I've gotten very handy with using evernote and dragon dictation. I always had an iPod on me so now I have one that's also my phone. We're lucky enough to live in an area where AT&T isn't so congested you can't make calls, so we don't have the horrible network issues so many others (here in the states) do. The camera is damn good for being a phone, and the hipstamatic app makes it so much better.


But yes I now realize that there are a lot of phones that do these things and some phones even do them better. But a fanboy I am not. If I needed a new phone tomorrow, it'd probably be the Nexus S. My understanding is that android can be difficult, or even impossible, to update. Depending on your phones manufacturer. "Fractured" in the parlance, I think? Finding out that some people are totally Fukcing CRAZY about their phone and engage in open warfare on the message boards with people who don't agree has been worth the price of the apple product, truly. It's so entertaining watching people try to convince others that the iPhone, (or Incredible, or EVO, or Nexus) is the second coming of Christ.
