Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) kicked off today with the unveiling of iOS 6 for the iPhone and iPad. Apple is promising over 200 new features in the latest version of its mobile operating system, but only a few of them were highlighted in the keynote.
June is an exciting month for smartphone fanatics as Microsoft is expected to unveil the next generation of Windows Phone at an event next Wednesday, June 20 while Google is expected to reveal its plans for the next version of Android, codenamed “Jellybean.”
Apple announced Monday updates to their MacBook Pro line, introducing the company’s next generation MacBook Pro.
Apple senior vice president Phil Schiller introduced the next generation MacBook Pro, which comes with Retina Display, weighs 4.46 pounds and is 0.71 inches thick. Apple calls it the world’s highest-resolution notebook display, with a whopping 2880 x 1800 display. The next generation MacBook will ship with OS X Mountain Lion, an HDMI port, Thunderbolt and Intel Quad-core i7 processor.
“It’s a true breakthrough in engineering – there’s never been a notebook this thin, this light, this powerful for professional use. Don’t worry, I’ll tell you all about it in just a minute, I just want to enjoy this,” Schiller said. More

Sure, there’s Apple TV, but it has been a “hobby” for the company. Last year, 2.8 million units of the device were sold, and 2.7 million units have been sold so far this year. Though that’s impressive, it’s a far cry from the company’s iPhone, iPad, Mac, and iPod sales.
With Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference just weeks away, expect plenty of reports of new features to come crawling out of the woodwork. In fact, here’s one from the Wall Street Journal — they claim that Apple has been doing some major tinkering with their iCloud storage service, the fruits of which will be unveiled on June 11.
Following the fall launch of its wildly popular iPhone 4S last year, Apple reportedly plans to return to its summer launch schedule and unveil the next-generation iPhone 5 during its annual Worldwide Developer Conference in June.
DigiTimes relayed the claim, which cited a Daiwa Securities analyst when it first appeared in Chinese-language newspaper Commercial Times on Thursday.
