My Predictions for WWDC 09

Here are my predictions for this year.

  1. We’ll see an updated version of the iPhone with more storage and a compass. If it has a video camera that would be awesome but I won’t hold my breath.
  2. We’ll see the announcement of the release of Snow Leopard in August or September. I think Apple will also announce that it will be a free upgrade for Leopard users. They did this for some of the earlier versions of OS X and given the nature of this release I wouldn’t be surprised if they did it again. Especially with the release of Windows 7 this year.
  3. Snow Leopard will have the new ‘Marble’ UI theme that has been rumored
  4. I don’t think we’ll see the infamous media tablet that everyone likes to speculate about. However, I do think iPhone developers may get some info about how future device sizes will be handled.
  5. Like many others I think it would be awesome if Steve Jobs appeared at the keynote but he won’t.
