What will Apple unveil at WWDC?

Tech Industry
[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> I'm Kara Tsuboi, CNET News.com welcome to the Daily Debrief. My guest today is Tom Krazit, writer for News.com who follows Apple. And of course we've got the Worldwide Developers Conference here in San Francisco on Monday. Tom, why don't you give us a preview of what kind of news we could hear especially about the iPhone? >> Well yeah, if you haven't been living under a rock for the last two weeks, you probably know that Apple is about to release a 3G iPhone. >> Right. >> We're pretty sure it's gonna have a GPS chip in it, which would allow you to use Google Maps and other types of applications. You get a real nice fix in your location. It might be thinner, it might be thicker. We're not quite sure. We've heard different reports on that, but it might be different. I think that's fairly safe to assume it might be a different kind of hard ware style iPhone out there next week. >> One thing we don't know is if the iPhone is going to be available starting Monday. >> Yeah. That will be interesting to see. I'm starting to doubt it more and more, you know as some of the late news comes in just because the software is not quite ready yet, either it seems to deliver some of the enterprise friendly applications that we heard about in March. So we'll see. I would be surprise to see they're available on Monday, but I would be shocked if it is not least shown off on Monday. >> Right. I mean, obviously people have been waiting for months to buy their new iPhone. >> Ever since perhaps the first one was launched actually, there's faster miles put in the mail. >> Yeah, you know there's gonna be a second generation at some point. >> Definitely. >> So the other part of the conference will most likely be about OS X, is that right? >> Yeah. This is the Worldwide Developer Conference and in those always about Mac Developers in at least in part. This year, a little bit less so because of the iPhone, but the Mac OS will still be a big part of it and we expect to hear a little bit more about 10.6, which will be the next version following Leopard, which was released in October. >> And what can we expect from 10.6? >> Well, the early buzz about that is that Apple's not actually going to do too much on the features side. They're gonna try to emphasize security and stability with the new release, which would be a bit surprising, but you know, you can sort of see why an argument would be made for that, you know, they're improving those kinds of things, never hurt. >> Surprising because it's not that sexy of an announcement. >> Exactly. You know, I mean this is a company that likes to dazzle you with its operating system and you know it's a do-it, sort of a back end plumbing type of release like that. You know, it might make a lot of sense from a development standpoint, but you know, where's the buzz? >> Or maybe we get, you know, more boring news than OS X, more exciting news on the iPhone. I'm sure Jobs has it all figured out. >> Yeah, either way I'm pretty sure they'll put together a decent show. >> Oh, of course, he's such the showman. And I love how this all this talk about what OS X -- the 10.6 is gonna be named. >> Oh, the Snow Leopard, did you see that. >> Or the LOLcat. I think that's a good one. >> I would be really surprised if they actually did call it Snow Leopard just based on the fact that the current version is Leopard. >> Right. >> But they're running out of big cats, so... >> Kruger though. >> Well, I have to see it. >> We don't have a Kruger yet. Very good and you're obviously at the conference, I know, you know it's always very tight getting people into this conference. >> Yes. I mean, this is a little bit of a different conference compared to lot of the other ones that Apple does and that is a closed event just for developers. This is the first year that actually sold out all of their allotment of developers slots, which is really been explained by the interest in the iPhone as a development platform, you know, not just the Mac anymore. >> How many spots are we talking hundreds, thousands. >> Thousands, but less than you -- less that you might think. I mean, you know Apple is a smaller community of developers just based on the fact of its market share, but things are changing with the iPhone. >> Of course. Well, thank you so much. We look forward to your life blogging on Monday. >> Thank you. >> And we'll all be keeping our fingers crossed about that new Apple iPhone in stores soon. Tom Krazit, I'm Kara Tsuboi, CNET.com.
