While rivals launch new products or services via videos on YouTube or new ad campaigns, there’s always been something more glitzy about Apple’s major announcements since the iPhone launched back in 2007.
The media coverage awarded Steve Jobs’ iPhone OS 4.0 presentation, for example, was something to behold. You can barely imagine the world’s TV networks getting themselves into a spin every time Microsoft adds new features via Windows Update, for instance.
As such, it’s widely expected that WWDC 2010– which Apple has now revealed will start on June 7th in San Francisco– will play host to the first official iPhone 4G info. While Apple has yet to confirm such a possibility, those in the know seem to think June will most certainly be the month, and WWDC the most likely event.
“This year’s WWDC offers developers in-depth sessions and hands-on working labs to learn more about iPhone OS 4, the world’s most advanced mobile operating system,” senior VP of iPhone software Scott Forstall said in a statement, sidestepping any notion of iPhone 4G.
“WWDC provides a unique opportunity for developers to work side-by-side with Apple engineers and interface designers to make their iPhone and iPad apps even better.”
So, no mention of iPhone 4G officially, but we’ll be surprised if WWDC 2010 doesn’t turn out to be the device’s first foray into the public spotlight.
