There is a new rumor going around that Apple might be planning on bringing Steve Jobs up on stage at WWDC. You’re probably wondering how and why Apple would do what some might see as a morbid thing.
Apple fans might get to see the former CEO in the same way that Tupac Shakur paved the way by performing in hologram form at the Coachella Music Festival in 2012. Apple might also want to use Steve Jobs to introduce upcoming produtcs like the iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, iPad 5, iPad mini 2, iWatch, and iTV. There would be no better presenter than Steve Jobs.
The rumor began when TMZ was tipped that Apple was planning on bringing Steve Jobs up on stage at WWDC 2013. While Tim Cook was speaking in Washington D.C. about Apple’s tax issues, TMZ caught up to the Apple CEO and point blank asked if “we would ever see a hologram of Steve Jobs at the next Apple convention anytime?” Tim Cook responded with, “I can’t comment on that.”
This is certainly a stretch, but there are a few reasons why Apple might actually use its former CEO in hologram form to take part in unveiling iOS 7. Steve Jobs loved to speak about and show off Apple’s newest products, his showmanship is legendary and even through his sickest bouts the CEO found the strength to give a presentation like no one can.
Steve Jobs had the special ability to make you want and need a product you didn’t think you needed or wanted. He took great pride in showing off his company’s hardware, software and services unlike any other CEO of technology companies could even attempt to copy.
Another possible reason that Apple could use a hologram of Steve Jobs is to invigorate people’s current perception of Apple of losing innovation. If there’s anyone who can speak about new innovations coming from Apple, Steve Jobs is the man. It would certainly make Apple fan boys go insane seeing their “leader." It could also show the world that Steve Jobs was involved with many of Apple’s upcoming products and even in death still plays a big role at the company.
We all know what a crazy genius Steve Jobs really was, he wanted us to “think different” and offer us “magical devices”, the most magical device to come out of Apple could be a Steve Jobs hologram.
As with all Apple rumors take this one with a huge grain of salt. It seems a little far-fetched, but that’s what Apple’s known for, bringing us something we didn’t think we needed…
