wwdc-2013-logo-thumb.jpgApple’s annual WWDC event will this year take place between June 10 – 14 in San Francisco.

The yearly meet up for Mac and iOS developers is usually a showcase for software updates from the Cupertino giants, but is often also used to launch some of the company’s hardware too.

For 2013, Apple promise to give developers in attendance “an in-depth look at what’s next in iOS and OS X”, suggesting we may get a first official look at what’s coming with the iOS 7 update. It’s possible the event will also see the launch of Mac’s OS X Mountain Lion successor.

As for hardware, it’s anyone’s guess! It’s still a little too early we feel for iPad or iPhone launches, with their most-recent editions landing last Autumn and still feeling fresh, though we’re approaching a year since the unveiling of the first Retina MacBook Pro models.

As ever though, devout Apple fans are scouring the invite for clues as to what could be on show at WWDC 2013. The colourful invite is leading some to speculate that new iPhones will indeed launch, given previous speculation that this year’s models will arrive in multiple colours, as did the most recent iPod Touch media players.
