As Apple’s focus shifted to mobile in the past few years, its desktop line of products have been sidelined, receiving no update for as much as 685 days.
The all-new Maps app is one of the major features in iOS 6 – Apple’s next generation mobile operating system that was unveiled last month, which includes features such as turn-by-turn voice navigation, 3D flyover-mode, real-time traffic information and more.
It looks like Apple is also working on a Maps for OS X (at least for the Intel-based Macs) based on the code references discovered in iOS 6.
While the purported specs of MacBook Pro have suggested that it will come with only minor improvements and won’t come with Retina Display, the first Retina-ready app has just arrived in the Mac App Store.
As reported by The Next Web, Brothers Roloff – developer of FolderWatch has released an update for their app, which includes support for “Retina graphics”.
With just over 5 days to go for WWDC 2012, where Apple is expected to unveil at least four new Mac products, AppleInsider has published a list of 27 new part numbers from Apple’s inventory system.
According to AppleInsider, 14 out of those 27 new part numbers appear to be for new Apple products.
If you are expecting Apple to unveil the next generation MacBook Pros with Retina Display at WWDC 2012, then you will be quite disappointed with the leaked specs that were posted on Chinese forum Weiphone, that are apparently the specifications of the upcomi.g 13.3″ MacBook Pro.
The specs suggest that the new MacBook Pros will come with only minor improvements and won’t get the rumored Retina Display. The specs also seem to suggest that the thickness of the new MacBook Pros will be the same.
Until now, rumors indicated that Apple will unveil the next generation MacBook Pros with Retina Display, iOS 6 – its next generation mobile operating system, release update for iCloud and OS X Mountain Lion at next week’s WorldWide Developer Conference.
But looks like Apple may have more surprises for us. 9to5Mac now reports that Apple will update at least four out of their five Mac products. According to them, “WWDC 2012 might be the biggest simultaneous launch of new Macs in Apple’s history”.
