If you consider yourself an Apple nerd then you will undoubtedly know of “Apple’s October 4th Press Event” With A Tagline Of “Lets talk iPhone”. The tagline suggests the introduction of apples new iPhone 5, But what else could we expect from Tim Cook? Here’s My Top 5 Things To Expect!
iPhone 5 (Duh): I would expect to see the new iPhone landing with an; upgraded camera possibly 8MP, Apple A5 bringing increased processor speeds, upgraded display and a change to body design. Design mockups seem to show an enlarged home button, this seems a little out of Apple characture but worth keeping an eye out for.
TheAppleFreak has already mentioned the introduction of a white iPod touch with very minor changes to hardware. No major changes are to be expected but apple will surly give the iPod some screen time during the keynote. Also, early indications pointed to the iPod having a GPS chip but those have gone away now!
I refer you to another TheAppleFreak post called a iOS5 Sneak Peak It would seem that Apple have been entirely honest with us on the iOS front, but in true apple style I’m sure there’ll be some nice surprises.
Sources have been pointing towards some minor refreshes to the Mac line up, upgrades to the MacBook Air, Macbook Pro & iMac are to be expected but don’t pin any hopes on it as the invite does clearly say “Lets talk iPhone” So the mac might not get the limelight On The 4th
iCloud, Apples answer to world hunger, Joke. No iCloud is Apples all singing all dancing web cloud service, I had the privilege to test iCloud, and I can testify to its features. Its technically sound, If it can rise to the competition of Amazon, Microsoft And Dropbox remains to be seen…
One Last Thing?
Apple nearly always plays this card, towards the end of the keynote the italics text will show “One Last Thing” and the crowd will go nuts, it remains to be seen if Tim Cook can inspire such enthusasum in the viewers. This part is very hard to predict, last year it was the Apple TV, It would be logical to expect a minor or major refresh in the Apple TV but I don’t believe it will be worthy of the closing part of the keynote.
And that wraps up my predictions for the 4th. Be sure to read over those articles, And Tune Your Macs Into Apple.com For 10Am October 4th.
