Do you dream every night about something like iOS 6 or a refreshed Mac lineup? If yes, then blame the WWDC 2012, Apple's annual pilgrimage for developers, which is all set to kick off 10 a.m. PT on Monday at Moscone West center in San Francisco.
The latest round of rumors about the most anticipated announcements at this year's Worldwide Developer Conference has set the tech world on fire with Apple enthusiasts around the world going crazy about a number of products and services such as the upcoming version of Apple's mobile operating system, iOS 6, new MacBook Pros and Mac OS X Mountain Lion.
During the launch of the new iPad in March, Apple CEO Tim Cook himself suggested that his company is going to offer even more in 2012. If rumors are to be believed, iOS 6 would very probably be the main focus of the keynote as well as the follow-up sessions.
Apart from that, the Cupertino tech giant is expected to take the wraps off its new MacBook Air/Pro laptops with Retina graphics, new iMacs with more pixels and improved Apple TV. The company is also widely expected to tell us more about OS X Mountain Lion and offer updates for iCloud.
We have a great WWDC planned this year and can't wait to share the latest news about iOS and OS X Mountain Lion with developers, said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing in a statement.
When it comes to the next-generation iPhone, unofficially labeled the iPhone 5, Monday's conference is not expected to reveal much. The device is very likely to be introduced toward the latter half of this year (October, to be more precise).
