2010 WWDC Predictions: iPhone HD/4G Plus…What Else?

Share:

June 7th has finally arrived! Today kicks off the 2010 WWDC where Apple is expected to announce the next iPhone HD/4G, which we have already seen thanks to Gizmodo (which, funny enough, they did not get press passes to WWDC). We’ve seen videos of the next iPhone and tear downs as well. Apple might not reveal that prototype that was exposed, but possibly another iPhone altogether. What will the next iPhone entail?

Here are some last minute “leaks” from CNET Asia that are from a Korean production line:

iPhone Predictions for Today’s WWDC:

  • Front facing camera (iChat integration just like on OS X)
  • Higher resolution screen
  • Hardware redesign: thinner, lighter, less plastic
  • 5.0 megapixel camera with LED flash; HD video ready
  • 512MB RAM, A4 processor
  • Better battery life–50% increase compared to 3GS
  • 802.11n wireless
  • 32GB/64GB models at $199/$299 price point
  • iPhone 3GS price drop to $99

Other Miscellaneous Announcements:

  • Steve Jobs opens with some sort of joke about the whole Gizmodo saga (possibly a bar joke)
  • iPhone OS 4.0 download available today or next week; further features revealed
  • Safari 5, developer preview of OS X 10.7

What do you think will be announced today? The opening keynote starts at 10AM PST, and will be live blogged by Engadget. ARE YOU READY?!

    I don't think Steve will joke about the Gizmodo thing just yet, since he said he wasn't going to let it slide. I predict Apple will now offer an unlocked iPhone.

  • Craz

    Anyone know if this is streamed live somewhere?

  • wuju

    That would be very sweet if it's unlock from the get go. Why bother now since most Canadian cellphone company carries iPhone now.

  • lxlim

    Maybe that All things D was just to mislead people.

    How funny would it be if Steve actually plays the Jason Chen's video showing the iPhone then he actually comes up to the stage to hand the iPhone HD/4/4G… to Jobs?

    I know it will never ever happens πŸ™

  • Hopefully, MobileMe will be free now. I have it but I want my friends to have it too!
    There's also the Magic Trackpad for the mac.

  • Jeff

    So is there any word yet on iPhone hardware upgrades being moved up like last year?

    Thanks bunches!

  • djepsilon

    Along with all the iPhone updates, I really hope we see a MacPro update as well at this conference…. Maybe even a Final Cut update too? (One can only dream)

    As far as the iPhone, I'm hoping Steve will have his “one more thing” that no one has any idea about. Some feature or something that will stab the EVO in it's little Android heart.

    MAN I LOVE WWDC DAY!!! (It's almost as good as the NHL trade deadline!)

  • lxlim

    I hope for this one as well. But I think the tiered plans will be offered.
    Free – Email/Contact/Calendar (Stuff already available from Google for free)
    Min fee – Find iPhone/Remote wipe and things we really need?
    Full fee – All features, same as current members. Maybe some surprise?

    I really hope the find and remote wipe is free, otherwise, no need for MobileMe.
    I'm already using GoogleSync!

  • Jason

    I expect some update on the Mac Mini, and with google releasing “Google TV” I expect some update on “Apple TV” as well..

    NO CANADA?????? I don't want to wait till July! πŸ™

  • Trevor

    initial launch not in Canada?!? Why?
    never been a huge fan of Apple but I really like my iPhone. Guess it's time to start looking for another brand of phone.

  • wuju

    3G unrestrictor to the rescue.

  • dash8311

    No Canada for initial shipment. Lame…betcha Rogers screwed this up somehow…

  • wuju

    No answer to unlocked phone from the presentation. So I guess it's still locked to your carrier.

  • wuju

    I agree too.

  • Dgs

    No Canada?fuck to die,jobs

  • duker

    what will Rogers do re: upgrade dates? My 3G plan hits the 24 month mark in August…think I'll be eligible?

  • Annonymous

    No Canada until July??? Come on — that sucks hard!!

  • Anonymous

    How can they put in France over Canada?? Unbelievable….

  • wuju

    My iphone 3G is in its 2 year lock around now, so I have but 1 more year. I'm curious to know too if I'm eligible for an early upgrade from Fido.

  • ByteMe

    How sad that Canada gets shafted again πŸ™
    Very well Apple… you leave me with no choice but to abandon you.

  • mrnorrie@hotmail.com

    720p video recording and no additional memory capacity? What is up with that? 32 gigs and I can't ditch the ipod and carry only the phone. What an epic fail!

  • DJ

    Me too, my 2 year make is the end of July, I think you can upgrade hardware with Rogers at the 2 year mark ?

  • Bill Gates

    So happy when he said June 24th but noooo. Canada gets the second shipment in july…

    WOW, there are 8 new features of iphone 4, the first one is “all new design”, the new design is better than the pictures we've got before wwdc. Better than those put in your article, your “Predication of iphone HD/4G”.
