What You Can Expect At WWDC 2010

The Apple World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) is just a few days away now. This year the expectations from the WWDC event are higher than before. The Gizmodo/iPhone 4G fiasco has already publicized the launch ofwwdc10_sold-out-badge the iPhone 4G/HD. This is the first time, that we have an idea of the specifications of the iPhone to be released by Apple. Apple has been known to keep its product under wraps before they officially announce it, but this time they have failed miserably. Thanks to the numerous leaks, we know that the iPhone 4G/HD will once again set the bar high so high, that other phone manufacturers will struggle to catch up. It was earlier rumoured that Steve Ballmer will be present at the WWDC event, but this news has been denied by Microsoft in a tweet.

This year, the WWDC will kick off with a keynote address from CEO Steve Jobs himself! More than 5000 developers are expected to visit the WWDC event this year. Besides the launch of the iPhone 4G/HD, we also expect a new generation of the iPod Touch from Apple. The iPod Touch prototype that leaked in Vietnam earlier this year, does indicate that the iPod touch will have a camera. Along with the two iDevices mentioned above, we also expect Apple to release a new Beta or maybe the final version of the upcoming iPhone 4 OS. Hopefully, Apple will also release the 10.6.4 update for Mac OS X. The 10.6.3 update for OS X, increased the boot-up times, and caused performance issues for many people.

According to Apple, this year the WWDC event will focus on five key technology tracks: Application Frameworks; Internet & Web; Graphics & Media; Developer Tools; and Core OS.This year, the WWDC event is being held at San Francisco. The event will start from June 7th and will continue until the 11th of June. The event will start from 10 AM local time, with a keynote from Steve Jobs.
