WWDC 2013 Concept

Here is my take on what WWDC 2013 could look like:


June 10-14

WWDC 2013
Banners:

OS X Lynx, iOS 7, iCloud, Siri

Announced products:
-iMac with Retina Display
-MacBook Air with Retina Display
-Spec Update to MacBook Pro

New iMac (Mid 2013)
(iMac with Retina Display)


The ultimate next-generation device.

-MultiTouch display
-Display pivots to horizontal for touch and vertical for mouse/trackpad
-Extended stand allows display to come close to user for touch
-Runs iOS when horizontal and OS X when vertical
-New file management system called iDocuments keeps documents in sync between OSes
-Retina Display: (3840 by 2160) 21.5"
-6-core i7 for OS X
-Quad-core A6X for iOS
-12 GB RAM (expandable up to 32 GB)
-512 to 1024 GB of flash storage
-Available in mid August with OS X Lynx and iOS 7

Apple's patent sketch:





OS X Lynx (10.9)

Powerful. Simple. Connected.

OS X Lynx is the next generation of desktop operating systems.

I know, some of the things on here are unlikely, but I hope this is the way the next year turns out for Apple. Let me know what you think. Feel free to ask questions about things that are confusing. I quickly typed most of this into the notes app on my iPhone, so some things may not be explained very well.

Any suggestions for what could be added to the list?
What do you think the next iPhone will be called? iPhone 6, iPhone 5, iPhone X, iPhone LTE, iPhone 4g, the new iPhone, or Next Generation iPhone?

That's a pretty detailed and impressive list. I like the name OS X Lynx, maybe a code word for "link" between OSX and iOS. But I wanted to know why you think the iMac would be the first Mac to get a touch interface and integration with iOS rather than the laptops? Since you sit further away from the iMac than you would for a laptop, would reaching your arm out that far be tiresome?

I was just basing it off of a patent that already exists from Apple for a pivoting iMac touch display. http://www.patentlyapple.com/patentl...mac-touch.html

Although, they do have a patent for a touch MacBook that I didn't see before. However, I thought with the upcoming iMac refresh, it would be a perfect time to redesign it.

If an iMac gets a touch screen I doubt they'd make you switch operating systems when you move the screen - it would be a hell of a lot to load.

However, I can see the UI changing when moved to in front of you. That's if they make a touch screen iMac, which I can't see the point of.

Touch screens might be newer than non-touch screens but that doesn't mean they're better for everything. We'll never have touch screen televisions, for example.

Touch screens might be newer than non-touch screens but that doesn't mean they're better for everything. We'll never have touch screen televisions, for example.
The iMac would keep both operating systems running on separate processors and RAM, so switching would be instant. It could even have a visual fade, so the transition looks smooth.

iOS would only come up if the display is pivoted horizontally, and it could be brought right in front of you to touch. I imagine some type of arm mechanism that would extend the display away from the base.

iDocuments would scan OS X for document-type files and sync them to iOS in the iDocuments app. This would allow the user to access their files in either OS, and wouldn't require manual transfer. Instead of a touchscreen keyboard, iOS would just access the hardware keyboard (support built into iOS 7).

A revamp was implied by the splitting up of iTunes, which would reduce bloat in the software. I would hope that the software would get a redesign at the same time.

You're right. I was a little harsh with the requirements. People would probably get mad at Apple, as they already did with Mountain Lion's requirements, so 2008 does sound better.

That sounds like a good solution. Probably more Apple-like than giving people option to hide any native app.

I hope Apple doesn't get rid of names of devices. I was disappointed by the "new iPad" name they gave the iPad 3. What happens when the 4th gen comes out? The "new iPad" will be the "old new iPad" and the new one will be the "new new iPad". iOS devices have too much hype to just go by the gen number, in my opinion. Look at the Retina MacBook Pro. As a redesigned device, it has the name of "MacBook Pro with Retina Display" instead of just the generation number. If Apple moves to generation numbers for all their devices, they will lose a big part of their culture.

Thanks! I hope to make some mockups soon. Didn't know about Serval. That sounds cool, but the only problem is it sounds too much like Server

iPod had a lot of hype back in the day and they went my gen. number. I think Retina Macbook Pro is just what they are calling it now (right now it's kinda like Apple's new concept) but it will morph into Macbook Pro.

Apple will probably do it, it's just a shame because I don't think it can be marketed as well as using names like "iPhone 4" and "iPhone 3G." It might not matter though because people will probably still call the next iPhone the iPhone 5 instead of iPhone (6th generation). A lot of people call the new iPad the iPad 3. I can see Apple doing it if they already did it with the iPod. But, it will just lead to more name debates on MacRumors

I guess no one will know until it happens. People usually don't even know what the phone is called anyway... I've heard people say they have the iPhone 4Gs so the name might actually confuse people.

No. Just no. I would never use a OS X system again.

Why? If you aren't currently using an application, wouldn't you want it to conserve memory? There would be APIs that would allow things like video, rendering, downloading, and other important processes to run in the background.

Switching to the application, whether by clicking on the dock icon, using CMD-TAB, or Mission Control would be instantaneous. CMD-Q hides the application, but keeps background APIs running. CMD-H hides the application, but keeps it running completely in the background like how CMD-H works on OS X now.

There could also be an option in Settings (System Preferences) to turn this system off.

If you are worried about automatic termination, that would only kick in when the system is extremely low on memory. As long as you have at least 8 GB of RAM, it shouldn't be a problem.

The iOS way works very well on mobile devices, hence why it was implemented. I feel it is not meant for computers. I like to manage my own applications thanks. I certainly don't want them freezing whenever I bring another window into focus.

It wouldn't freeze just changing the focus. It would only freeze an application if you manually invoke CMD-Q, which you normally do to quit an application.

Instead of completely quitting it, which means it won't start up instantly next time, it "freezes" it, which just means it keeps most of its resources in memory so you can quickly switch to it at anytime (like iOS). However, you are basically done using the application. You don't hit CMD-Q if you are still using it. However, it isn't as much of a problem if you quit the application now.

I can see what you mean by managing applications by yourself on a computer (power users), but Apple often likes to manage things for people (like auto updating software in Mountain Lion). Power users can still turn this system off and never use it, but this would be great for people that usually leave applications running all the time.

I can see them implementing something similar to this, but maybe not so automatic. This is still not completely automatic though, as you can just choose never to quit anything if you are still using the application actively. Just think of it like inactive RAM, but it is even faster because it is somewhat active. Foreground applications still get to use the most memory.

I edited my list to include new features in iOS 7. Drive View is basically like Street View, but would be included in Apple Maps. C3 Technologies has been working on a Street View-like service called Street Cam.



I bolded major features that would be demoed at WWDC for both OS X and iOS. I made the minimum system requirements for OS X Lynx less harsh. For the 2009 Macs, I changed it to 2008.

I also removed redesigned YouTube app as Apple's license has run out, and YouTube is not coming back to iOS. Instead, Apple would partner with Vimeo.

I edited some of the upcoming products' details.

I might add some more features for OS X Lynx soon.

I updated a lot of stuff in this list, including OS X Lynx, and I included an Apple patent design of the iMac.

Just for fun, I looked back at my old WWDC 2013 predictions. I was completely off with the hardware, but I predicted some of the features of OS X 10.9 and iOS 7. I bolded the ones that were either right or close, and the ones that weren't right are in regular text. Keep in mind that I wrote these predictions in mid July, 2012. This was before we knew anything about 10.9 or the redesign of iOS. The touchscreen iMac prediction in the original post was way off! I was pleasantly surprised about the software predictions, though.

_Smooth scrolling architecture *Mavericks uses new scrolling architecture for smoother scrolling
_Core animation is very smooth
-Recent document list on desktop (mouseover apps in dock)
