WWDC 2013: New Macs, OS X 10.9, iOS 7 unveiling, no new Phone or iPad

In less than two weeks Apple will unveil iOS 7, Mac OS X 10.9, and new Macs to the world at its WWDC 2013 event on June 10 and it seems all but confirmed that we won't get a glimpse of the rumored iPhone 5S, iPad 5, or iPad mini 2 with Retina Display. A reliable Apple journalist has posted information about what he expects at WWDC 2013 and there's no iPhones or iPads in sight.

Noted Apple-focused journalist, Jim Dalrymple, has claimed on The Loop that iPhones and iPads will do a no-show at WWDC 2013 but instead of focusing on what we're not getting, let's focus on what we're getting and that's iOS 7.

iOS users will finally have something new to look at, with its rumored new black, white and flat all over redesign. It will be the first major visual change to the operating system since its release in 2007. There haven't been too many leaks about upcoming features of iOS 7 though. Everything we've heard centers on the updated interface, so iOS fans will be keeping their fingers crossed and hope that the seven-year wait was worth it.

However, Apple won't be devoting the entire event to iOS 7. Mac fans will be happy to know that Apple will be showing off Mac OS X 10.9 to the public for the first time as well. We had earlier reported on some of the expected features of Apple's desktop operating system and Mac OS X 10.9 will follow Apple's recent tradition of taking some iOS influence and bringing it to the desktop. We are likely to see elements of iOS 7 sprinkled throughout, as Jony Ive is working on the design of both the operating systems now.

In terms of hardware, Apple is expected to announce upgrades to both the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air notebooks. The upgrades are expected to be internal, so we probably won't get redesigned Macs from Apple at the event.
