Apple to announce new MacBooks at WWDC, and not a single iPhone

Apple to announce new MacBooks at WWDC, and not a single iPhone
It seems this year's WWDC will not pass without some new hardware. But what is this new hardware going to be? According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is going to introduce upgraded versions of its MacBook Air and MacBook Pro notebooks. What Apple is not expected to unveil are new versions of the iPhone and iPad. Obviously, Apple doesn't want to water down the announcements of its most popular products with some developer stuff... that, and it probably isn't ready with the new iPhones and iPads yet.

Of course, the most important thing for us during WWDC 2013 will be the announcement of iOS 7, which is supposed to be the first major remake of the venerable platform. With a new executive in charge of iOS design, we are in for a more contemporary, but still quite Apple-ish look of the OS. And when it comes to the new hardware, we'll probably have to wait until September to check it out.

I'll put a new Macbook pro with retina on my wishlist. It's simply the best.

Really? Believe me, I just tried that yesterday in local retail store.. It worked great... Did you said it was used at cinema theater?... That feature needs a bright lit environment...

the problem with smart scroll is that it only works with the samsung browser and nothing else(at least not yet). then there's the rest of the S4 's features that are just rip-offs of current google features. i will say this though, i love the new camera features and the fact that the AMOLED screen doesnt suck anymore

You didn't use the new iPhone and the new MacBook yet, how can you say that? Wendy, what the hell is wrong with you? You're being an unfair, naughty SamDUNG fanboy! Go poop yourself! :P

Wendy can change like a chameleon. :P In 2012, she's an Apple fan. In 2013, she's a SamDUNG fan. In 2014, she's a Sony fan. In 2015, she's a LG fan. In 2016, she's a Nokia fan. In 2017, she's a Huawei fan. In 2018, she's a ZTE fan. In 2019, she's an Oppo fan. And at last, in 2020, she's a poop fan.

What does this have to do with this article? Get a life/job/hobby. Do your homework or something. I hate every article having samsung specific trolls. Even fans of android are annoyed by you.

I'm guessing Apple is lacking in smartphone features because Samsung and its Android dudes have taken all ideas Apple intended to use.lol

Their next greatest features are the camera best shot and lockscreen apps access since they already filed patents for them.

WWDC is no longer the place for iPhone releases. Been that way for 3 years now.

Just got my Macbook Air 13.3. I'm happy with it. I don't need a Retina display on it for an extra $400-500.
