We’re less than ten hours away from the big
iPad 3 iPad HD launch, and considering I am in my iPads of March, it’s a topic I am thinking lots about. So I thought I would make my predictions about what we might see. Of course, a lot of thesis just repeating what other, more knowledgeable people, have predicted, but what the hell.
So here goes:
- iPad 3 with double pixel display, LTE and better cameras
- iPhoto or Aperture for iPad
- Apple TV with HD display
- iTunes Movies (and possibly Television shows) in HD
- iOS 5.1
- iWork ’12, featuring built in iCloud support
Of these, 1, 3 & 4 are commonly predicted. I think photo management (#2) on the iPad is definitely something we want to “see. And touch“.
As for item 5, I reckon that’s a no-brainer. iOS 5.1 is going to be needed for items 1 & 3, and should e interesting to see if it has any secret new features.
Now item 6 is my stretch prediction. Maybe it’s because it’s something I
want need to see. It’s high time that iWork on the Mac supported iCloud, and I don’t think Apple can afford to wait until the release of OSX Mountain Lion in 6 months or so.
So check back in tomorrow and we’ll see how I went.
