WWDC 2011 Predictions

Everyone loves a good Apple rumor, right? Here are some WWDC predictions I just made up. Wouldn't it be cool if I was right?

  • Wireless iPad and iPhone syncing
  • APIs for communications between a Mac app and an iOS app
  • APIs for using an iOS device as a custom controller of a Mac app (e.g. graphic EQ for Garage Band, game controllers, etc.)
  • Cloud storage of iPhone contacts, photos, videos, and app preferences
  • The ability to use the iPad as an additional Mac display
  • Music and vide subscription services
  • A new Android - like notification system to replace pop-ups (i.e. a list of notifications instead of badges and alerts)
  • Bluetooth libraries to allow simple communications with Android and other devices
  • The ability for apps to update their icon for displaying data
