Apple’s 2014 Worldwide Developer’s Conference (2014) kicks off next week. For the most part we’re expecting the company to discuss OS X 10.10 and iOS 8, and while one one report suggests that we may also see new hardware, it won’t be a cheaper 8GB iPhone 5s or a new and more affordable iMac, according to one pundit. The Loop‘s Jim Dalrymple, famous for his single word “yep” and “nope” responses to Apple rumors, and his accuracy in each response, recently said “nope,” we shouldn’t expect either of those products.
Dalrymple’s “nope” is in response to a report from KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo who, like Dalrymple, has accurately predicted Apple’s product plans thanks to his sources inside the company’s supply chain. It’s a battle between the sources, it seems, with one man predicting a new low cost iPhone and another saying it won’t happen. The difference, however, could be that Dalrymple’s response is in reference specifically to a WWDC announcement. Maybe an 8GB iPhone 5s is indeed in the cards, just not for next week.
TechnoBuffalo will be in attendance at this year’s WWDC show and we’ll let you know what happens. Maybe we’ll see the new MacBook Air with Retina display or some other new hardware entirely. And we’ll see who wins this face-off, Dalrymple or Kuo.
