Round-up of Apple’s WWDC 2012 Event!

Apple’s WWDC 2012 event had no real major surprise announcements this year. A few things were expected and Apple has quietly and efficiently delivered them. A new MacBook Pro with Retina Display, iOS 6  and many more updates.

I personally do not own Apple made gadgets, which means I do not take much interest in Apple events, except with the normal curiosity of a technology blogger. I followed the event on various social media websites and also the updated list of announcements on Apple.com.

Here is a quick round-up of the announcements made at the WWDC 2012 event.

MacBook Pro with Retina Display

Details:

New MacBook Air

Details:

  • New MacBook Air will see USB ports on both sides. It will support USB 3.0.
  • A 512GB Flash storage along with 8 GB RAM.
  • The 11-inch and 13-inch MacBook Air will run on Intel Core i5 and i7 processors respectively.
  • The camera with new device will be same as new MacBook Pro which is 720p Facetime camera.

iOS 6

The new iOS 6 will be available for iPod, iPhone and iPads later in the year from September to November. I think it will probably be made available around the time iPhone 5 is expected, which will be just before the holiday season.

Maps

Siri

iPhone 4S saw the introduction of SIRI. The voice app that allows your iPhone to literally talk to you. Actually the more important feature of SIRI is to listen to voiced commands and show up relevant information.

Facebook integration

iOS has had close Twitter integration which has been appreciated. A lot of people expected Facebook integration this time and they were not disappointed.

Safari Browser

Other Updates

You can read complete list of iOS 6 updates here.

OS X Mountain Lion

OS X Mountain Lion was actually announced a few months ago. They had better integration of Twitter, photo sharing directly to Flickr and even unlimited messaging among Apple devices.

I guess the focus will now shift to all the announcements that might be expected at Google IO 2012 which will be held on 27th – 29th June 2012.
