Apple’s WWDC 2011 Event

Apple's WWDC 2011 Event

In just about 5 minutes here Apple’s Worldwide Developer’s Conference will begin. Steve Jobs will be speaking about iOS5 for the iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch, OS X Lion, the new Mac operating system, and iCloud, the new cloud service which some are reporting is more like a rethinking of iTunes. I know not all of you are Apple nerds like me, but a lot of you designers are, so here’s where I’ll be watching the news as it happens.

First is This Is My Next because it’s got a nice clean design.
The second is Engadget, just because they’re the old pros.

I’m excited to see what comes out today. I honestly hope they’ve really started to rethink some of the core ideas of iOS. After seeing this Microsoft Windows 8 video it made me realize that I want a lot more notifications of things I’m into rather than static icons. Should be interesting nonetheless!
