The iPhone 4, the iPhone 3GS, the iPhone 3G and the original iPhone (I think) were all announced at WWDC.
That is correct, the only one not to have featured at WWDC is the 4S.

So the big question is will the next iPhone be at WWDC, I am very doubtful but I can always keep my fingers crossed.

Yup, they kept a solid sequence of summer releases at WWDC until the 4S where it was released in October. Its keeping everyone on their toes if this is the new trend or not. We have to remember its under a new leader, so things won't be exactly the same.

Great, so we're expecting one this time..:D
On the contrary. Most people aren't. I, myself, have no idea what to expect. Others though believe that 8 months is too short of a time for a new phone, iOS6 hasn't been released yet, etc., etc.

We'll find out in 5 days though.

Whenever the iPhone was announced at WWDC, the new iOS was debuted at its own event a few months before to allow developers to get their apps ready and find any bugs in the software. So it is unlikely they they will announce the new phone and OS at the same time, only giving developers a week or two to get their apps ready. And you know Apple isn't going to announce a hardware product months before its release.

Yup, every phone except for the 4S... in which case, iOS 5 was previewed at WWDC.


Every other time, when the phone was previewed at WWDC, they had a special event held in April to demo the appropriate iOS version.

Guess what they didn't have this past April... which means iOS 6 will likely be shown at WWDC and the next iPhone sometime in October.

I've heard from several people that Apple is going to honour the new September lifecycle so it's unlikely that the next generation iPhone will be announced during this years WWDC :)

Apple had incredible holiday sales numbers by releasing in the September time frame. That time frame will be the new release for iPhones.

they have almost every year.

However, there's almost no chance they will this year. Apple likes to put a new iPhone into the market within a few weeks of announcing it. iOS 6 hasn't even been demoed yet, and they generally give devs several months with the new OS to port their apps, add new features, etc. So if they demo the iPhone at WWDC this year, that'd either mean a long time before it ships, or not much dev time to port before iOS 6 releases.

I suppose a 3rd option would be releasing the new iPhone with iOS6 initially, but that would be against everything apple has ever done in the past

The first result that comes up says "WWDC 2010 Keynote Address, Apple today presented the new iPhone 4..."

Yeah, that's useless.
I don't get people who think community discussion should be decided by what they like to see on the forum and what they don't.

Useless, hence me asking here.
http://www.cultofmac.com/171879/the-history-of-wwdc-apples-biggest-announcements-feature/

That is actually the first stand alone link you can click on in your query result. It tells you everything ever released at WWDC, at least up until the point we care about for this discussion (2007 - iPhone). It's not useless, you just need to learn how to interpret the data presented to you in a web search. You won't always see the answer in "The following phones were released at WWDC..." format.

Now, I am not one to say "Google that first". You obviously did. Hopefully this helps you find useful information in future Google searches, as the answer often isn't spelled out for you.

Perhaps it's because you searched for this "have apple ever release an iphone at wwdc"

"iphone wwdc" clearly gives results that show that Apple always announces the new phone at WWDC, which is also a commonly known fact. You should be more concerned about learning to search; it will affect the results that come up.

It's very unlikely well see an iPhone at wwdc this year. Apple usually releases the beta version of the next iOS developers for several months before releasing the next device. As yet, iOS 6 has not been revealed or released, so expect the next phone to be about three months after wwdc.

Looking forward to the iOS 6 reveal though :D

I'd have just typed in "iPhone wikipedia" and looked through their various iPhone pages :D
