Not going this year for the first time since 2011 - I loved San Jose followed by a weekend in SF last year.
Well, we know at least new iPads and Macbook will be announced.
I suspect regular ipads will still be refreshed in March, but new iPad pros will be a marquee item at WWDC. We will see!
All I want for Christmas is the ATV to bitstream out. Atmos at minimum, DTS would be a bonus.
The hardware I'm most looking forward to seeing an update is the Mac mini. I want a more powerful Mac mini that will be priced in the $1,000 - $1,200 range. One with dedicated graphics that can handle 4K video without any trouble.
Good news! Apple sells that today, it’s called an iMac
Not if you need one without the monitor...
Surely they'll unveil their much-needed redesign of the Mac Pro?
It's been five years (June 2013 WWDC) since they unveiled the current (IMO, misguided) form factor. I know we can't expect a return to the giant cheese grater, but maybe somewhere in-between those two designs, smaller than the original Mac Pro, but more room for internal expansion than the current soda can design.
The Mac mini will be used as a Home Theater PC. My current Mac mini is 2010 vintage and, while it works fine for 1080p content it's not remotely capable for anything 4K.
“It's not quite a Mac mini, but it's my server - Six Colors”
I don’t expect any new form factor announcements at the March event. They will be at WWDC, if that’s what you meant
Actually, they don't. The cheapest iMac with a dedicated GPU is $1299…
wonder if we will get an updated Ipad Mini
It’s been four years since the mini was updated? It seems as likely to be discontinued as updated at this point.
I think that the iPad Mini is getting replaced by the iPhone Plus. The rumored iPhone X Plus will be 6.5” screen - almost the same size. IPads are now 9.7, 10.5 & 12.9. I really doubt there will be anything smaller than the 9.7” (which also happens to be both cheaper & more advanced than the Mini right now) in the future
Tim Cook and others at Apple have stated that the Mac mini is an important product in Apple's lineup. I wouldn't bet against the mini continuing to be offered and it seems almost certain it will get updated this year.
Hopefully so for its users and enthusiasts.
