Apple’s WWDC … without iPhone 5?

by SHARON FRAJLICH

In less than 24 hours after the announcement of this year’s Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, tickets sold out, according to the event’s site. While rumors have been circling that the unveiling of the iPhone 5 won’t be on the agenda, it is apparent that the anticipation of what will be shown is just as great.

According to The Loop, the company will be focusing on software, not on new hardware at the show.

The conference, which will be held June 6-10 in San Francisco’s Moscone West, will “unveil the future of iOS and Mac OS,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s VP of Worldwide Product Marketing to mashable.com.

While the past two WWDC’s included the launch of the iPhone 4 (in 2010) and iPhone 3GS (in 2009), appleinsider.com claims this year’s won’t involve the introduction of the iPhone’s next generation because it has not yet ordered the components to make the device. The site also states Apple is waiting to release the iPhone 5 until after its 2012 fiscal year begins in September or October because of the recent launch of the iPhone 4 for Verizon in February, yet they most probably won’t wait until the conference in 2012 and lose out on huge potential profits during the holiday season.
