10 things to expect from Apple in 2011

“There’s every chance Steve Jobs will at some point pull the tech industry equivalent of a rabbit out of a hat in 2011, unleashing an amazing gadget no-one had thought of but that everyone will want (or, if they’re a competitor, want to copy),” Craig Grannell reports for TechRadar UK. “However, through existing Apple announcements, the company’s previous form and some cunning and incisive guesswork, we can be pretty sure we’ll see the following ten things from the Cupertino giant over the coming months.”

10 things to expect from Apple in 2011:
1. Mac App Store
2. iPad 2
3. iOS magazine rack
4. iPhone 5
5. Mac OS X 10.7 Lion
6. Increased focus on iOS after Lion’s release
7. Opening up AirPlay
8. Improvements to MobileMe
9. iTunes music streaming service
10. Doomsayers rebuffed

  2. yeah they are pretty much all slam dunks, and jeebus from that standpoint it looks like Apple is gonna continue to dominate the world. Crazy thing is that you gotta factor in some actual surprises that Apple is sure to have up its sleave. Ouch, I wouldn’t wanna be a competitor.

    I think using that name would make a more positive outlook on your comments in life.
    Try to remember alot of people do t read this on a daily basis and it’s nice to have a breakdown of things. Thank you for posting 10 things MDN

  4. While the article is, in fact, accurate in that these are 10 things to expect from Apple next year…it just seems like it didn’t take much journalistic or analystic (is that a word?) talent to come up with the content.

    Yes, to the layperson, these 10 items might be newsworthy. But, for the most part, everybody on MDN is fully aware of the majority of these predictions.

  5. Odd as it might be to some, there are many people in the world who do not keep track of the latest sneeze from Mr. Jobs. (bless you)

    It’s a round up of information that is of use to many people.

  6. Yep, those are all in the cards. I’ll add to the list of obvious items:

    SSD replace hard drives on everything but the Mac Pro

    Optical drives remain as legacy hardware options for 2 or 3 yrs at the most

    Apple TV joins the iOS app world and becomes a cloud based gaming platform

    App store for Mac kick starts a golden age of Mac Gaming

    Office for Mac sales fall in 2011

    and the most obvious prediction for 2011……..

    Neither Dvorak or Paul Whatshisname will “get” the iPad.
