The Next Version of iOS: Predictions, Please!

By  |  Saturday, June 4, 2011 at 10:41 am

[UPDATE: I’m closing the survey and compiling the results. Thanks, folks!]

At 10am PT on Monday, June 6th, Apple will hold its WWDC 2011 keynote, with news about OS X 10.7 Lion, the next version of iOS, and something called iCloud. I’ll be there in person at San Francisco’s Moscone West  for Technologizer’s live coverage, joined by Ed Oswald and Techland’s Doug Aamoth for color commentary.

You can join us on Monday at, and I hope you will. (You can also head there now to sign up for an e-mail reminder.)

With less than 48 hours to go, time is running out to make predictions about what we’ll learn. We already know most of the details about Lion, and iCloud remains fairly enigmatic. So let’s focus in on iOS 5, or whatever the next version of the iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad operating system turns out to be called.

I’ve put together a survey that’ll let you make predictions about iOS 5 features and enhancements, (It’ll take you a minute or two to complete.) I’ll report on our aggregate predictions as a group before the keynote–and after Steve Jobs and company have spoken, we can see how accurate we were.

Click here to take the survey.  Thanks for participating, and see you on Monday.

    I think they're going to break apart iTunes and iOS device syncing and replace it with iCloud.

  4. Jeff R Says:

    I'm hoping for improved performance on an iPhone 4! Mine has been extremely sluggish ever since 4.3.

    Ya I like Music in the cloud. I think that sounds pretty cool. I hate syncing my phone all the time just for music.

    Improved Notifications. Dead cert. Bet the house on that one.
