“With WWDC quickly approaching, the rumor mills are heating up with what we should expect at Apple’s annual conference known for big announcements,” MG Siegler reports for TechCrunch.
Regarding reports that Apple is contacting media around the world to attend the event, “in no way is [a new iPhone] an obvious conclusion,” Siegler writes. “I’m not disputing the fact that Apple’s iPhone PR team wants people at this event. But guess what else that PR team is in charge of? iOS.”
Siegler writes, “we’re hearing that Apple is pushing for journalists to come to WWDC because the software announcements will be huge… And remember, this isn’t just about iOS 5. This is about Apple’s entire software backbone. iOS and OS X are both about to receive massive upgrades at the same time. And both will likely be extensively previewed at WWDC… Big news for iOS 5 — and yes, I’ve completely buried the lede here, thanks for reading! — two things: completely revamped notifications and widgets.”
