5 Things I Want From WWDC ’10

May 25, 2010 by Ryan Ray 

If you are one of the Mac faithful you know that WWDC is coming up in just about 2 weeks. WWDC stands for World Wide Developer Conference and is obviously put on by Apple for all things OS X. They usually use WWDC to launch a new iPhone on the first day, then talk about everything from Safari to Core services the rest of the week. Often they give those attending the first seed of a new version of OS X, but we’ll see what happens this year. Besides all that hoopla, there are a few things I want to see from WWDC ’10. So here they are in no particular order…

5 – Confirmed iPhone 4G

By now we’ve all seen the leaked iPhone prototype, but it’s nowhere near confirmed that this will be what is released. Although highly likely that it’s the one. It has some awesome hardware features packed into it, but I really want to know if those are going to come to fruition. What will the specs be on this new iPhone and more importantly what’s it going to cost me! I can’t wait til June 7th to get all of these details set in stone!

4 – Peek At Next OS X

More important to me than any iPhone OS is the future of Mac OS X. I’m interested in what new features and improvements will be seen as OS X makes more progress from Snow Leopard. Snow Leopard set the groundwork for a lot of cool things, now let’s see them being put in action. One of the main reasons I’m an Apple fanatic is for their computers and those run OS X. Not that the iPhone OS isn’t a variant of OS X and isn’t fantastic, let’s just not forget about the reason Apple exists in the first place! :)

3 – More iPhone OS 4 features

There are some many improvements going into iPhone OS 4.0, for one I think they should change the name. iTouch OS, or something like that. Since these features run on the iPod Touch, iPad and hopefully soon the AppleTV. It can’t always be called iPhone OS. Anyway, I hope to see more and more into the new OS with features we didn’t see at the special event a few months back. Not necessarily new features, although I won’t complain, just stuff that wasn’t touched on as a tentpole feature.

2 – AppleTV OS

Speaking of AppleTV, have you heard of GoogleTV? Yeah, Google just leapfrogged over your iTunes ecosystem and went more in a Boxee style approach. I use Boxee on my Mac Mini HTPC and love it. If AppleTV has any vision behind it, I hope they are cooking a great OS for the device. I also hope they bring whatever they are working on out soon too :)

1 – Verizon iPhone

Everyone on Verizon deep down knows they want an iPhone, so give it to them Apple! There is far too much lost revenue with Apple being stuck on AT&T. It may be a different story if AT&T performed better in the area of speed, reliability, customer service, etc… but help lighten their load Apple and let Verizon feel the strain and see how they hold up under your iPhone!

That wraps up my short list that I’d like to see from WWDC, and I don’t think it’s entirely impossible we can see all of that in a few weeks. We’ll definitely see some of it though, the iPhone is a no brainer since WWDC is all about iPhone this year. What do you think we’ll see? Leave a comment and let me know!

    I hardly leave a response, but i did a few searching and wound up here 5 Things
    To Watch For At WWDC ’10. And I actually do have
    a couple of questions for you if it’s allright. Is it
    only me or does it look like a few of the
    responses appear as if they are left by brain dead
    people? :-P And, if you are writing on additional social sites, I’d like to follow everything fresh you have to post.
    Could you make a list of the complete urls of your shared sites like
    your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
