Steve Jobs has just finished the WWDC 2011 keynote and its fair to say it was packed full of Apple goodness. The keynote focused on new advances of the OSx platform, which will be released in July for $29, iOS 5 features and the brand new iCloud, which will replace the ailing MobileMe.
Despite all of this excitement many Apple fans have turned to Twitter to voice disappointment over the iPhone 5, or should I say, lack of iPhone 5. There is a certain amount of clues that can be taken from today’s keynote though, many of which point to a more certain release date of the Apple iPhone 5.
After iOS 5 had been discussed a release date of ‘Fall 2011’ was given, this will run on all iOS 5 enabled devices including all iPhone variants from the 3GS upwards, the iPad and iPad 2. iOS 5 is available to developers today, giving them ample time to create and modify apps to use any of the new 1500 API’s Apple has unlocked. This autumn release date also coincides with previous sources who predicted an October to November release date for the iPhone 5.
The same happened after the iCloud presentation, Apple announced they have new data centers to roll out the service now, but instead have decided to wait until autumn. Again, this will allow developers to dig deep into iOS 5 but also supports new hardware which will most likely come in the form of the iPhone 5.
The features announced today where undoubtedly a huge leap forward for Apple, we will bring you an in-depth feature on all three announcements. In the meantime, please let us know your thoughts on the iPhone 5.
Are you disappointed it didn’t come or just pleased with the new features that will eventually come your way?
