Last Minute WWDC Rumor Roundup

The rumors are diverse, but none of them revolutionary: New MacBooks, maybe with retina displays; new Apple TV; new iOS 6, but no devices to run it on; Apple's own mapping program and API. Are the 17-inch MacBook Pros done?

If you're a Mac fan WWDC seems to be shaping up to be a pretty big deal, but none of the rumors I've heard have me excited:

  • New Macs with bumped-up specs (faster CPUs, more memory, bigger drives)
  • New MacBook Pros with similar bumps, but note that the lineup listed by 9to5Mac does not include a 17-inch model. I had heard an analyst say months ago that these would likely be dropped. They're way too big anyway.
  • 2 new MacBook Airs and a MacBook Pro with a Retina display.
  • Updated AirPort Express
  • Updated SuperDrive
  • Some sort of MagSafe update
  • The formal announcement of iOS 6
    • Do Not Disturb feature to turn off Alerts and Banners
    • Facebook integration of some sort
    • New APIs for Siri and mapping

We'll find out more very soon, but none of this has me excited.
