The fact that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) sold their conference tickets quickly is not surprising, but the fact they sold them within a two hour time frame is. Apple enthusiasts are anticipating the future of company, most particularly about iOS 6. They are also waiting to hear more about the iPhone 5 and iPad 4, but many others speculate that will not happen until the fall. Whether Tim Cook actually unveils either a new gadget remains to be seen but we know that Cook will hold the D10 conference two weeks prior to WWDC.
Within the next few weeks, we probably should hear more about what to expect from the WWDC event. Since all attendees are registered Apple developers, they must sign a non-disclosure agreement that prohibits them from sharing a lot of information.
We can not wait to find out what Tim Cook and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) have for us next. The fact that Cook is going to give a D10 conference two weeks prior to the event makes me speculate that they might unveil the new iPhone 5 at the WWDC.
