Apple’s annual developer conference WWDC has been set to June 11-15. Last year during this event Apple announced the iPhone 4 and iOS 5. This year Apple is probably going to release iOS 6 for sure, but I would not plan for Apple to announce the iPhone 5. It hasn’t been a year since Apple released the iPhone 4s last October so Apple has not gotten its full potential from the iPhone 4s revenue.
Apple will also probably introduce a computer upgrade to the Macbook Pro line and the Macbook Air line. They probably will introduce a 15inch screen to the Macbook Airs, and then both of the laptop lines will get a hardware upgrade to the newest generation of Intel processors.
Apple’s TV might be announced at WWDC. The “Apple TV” would be similar to the Apple TV device, but be a actual TV that will integrate you content from all your Apple devices. It will probably have connectivity to your other Apple devices.

Ever since the iPhone came out people have been saying that the iPhone would get a bigger screen. For the past couple of years, people have said that the iPhone will get a 4.6-inch screen. Here are four reasons that I think the iPhone will not get a 4.6-inch screen.
1. The top reason the next iPhone will not get the 4.6-inch screen is that it would be a 1.1-inch increase from the newest model, the iPhone 4S. If you follow any of the Apple product lines, Apple is not known for big upgrades on their devices. Apple will slowly increase the size and specs of the iPhone over time. They will never go that far from one generation to the next.
2. If the iPhone gets a 4.6 inch screen, Apple would be forced to update the DPI again, or have upset customers. The DPI would go from 326 DPI to 250 DPI, which would lower image quality, and even make the screen lose its classification as a “retina” display.
3.The current screen size of all the Apple devices are the perfect size. The entire screen and the home button can be reached by just using your thumb. With the 3.5-inch screen it can fit in your pocket, and does not look out of place. A 4.6 inch screen would make the device harder to use for some users.
4. Right now the Samsung Galaxy Note takes the cake for the biggest Screen size at 5.3-inch screen, and considering that tablets like the Kindle Fire are 7-inches, the Note is about to hit tablet. If the current trend keeps coming for phone sizes we will have phones as big as tablets in couple of years, and talking on a screen the size of the Galaxy Note makes you look ridiculous. There has been considerable backlash against the Note for its size, which I believe Apple would take as a lesson to not increase the iPhone’s screen size
In the end, I would not get excited about having a 4.6-inch screen because most likely the iPhone will still have the same screen size, and if Apple does change the screen size it will probably be a 3.7 0r 3.8-inch screen. Comment below and tell us what you think the screen size will be and why.
