This year’s WWDC is probably the one of the most anticipated Apple events of all time, with the promise of new and (hopefully) completely revamped versions of both iOS and OS X. Mac.AppStorm and iPad.AppStorm are here to help you keep track of it, with 3 liveblogs for you to watch and participate in! Unfortunately, we won’t be covering it from San Francisco, but we will be providing quality news coverage and analysis both during the presentation and afterwards.

There are three ways you can follow the event:

  1. Our ScribbleLive blog, manned by Mark Myerson, which will automatically update, and you can provide your own thoughts and comments in the live stream.
  2. Our Twitter accounts, @macappstorm and @ipadappstorm (both manned by James Cull). All our tweets will be marked with the hashtag #appstormwwdc — please feel free to use this for thoughts and comments so we can see them.
  3. Our App.net accounts, @macappstorm and @ipadappstorm (both manned by Jordan Merrick). Again, please use the hashtag #appstormwwdc for any thoughts and comments.

We’ll start at 5:30 PM (GMT) so see you there!

September 12th, 2012 was a day that had been anticipated by many for a long time. Ever since Apple released the invitations with the mysterious caption “It’s almost here”, along with a number 5 in the shadow, almost every tech blog has been speculating what will be announced. Maybe the long awaited iPhone 5? A refresh of the iMac line? A whiff of iTunes 11?

Today, those rumours have been debunked and at 10 AM local time, Tim Cook took to the stage of the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. The world was watching and so were we. Here’s what Apple announced.

With this week’s release of the iPad 2 (in the USA, at least), I know that many of you will now be sitting at home feeling ever so slightly less satisfied with the original iPad sat on your desk. It’s a strange phenomenon. Your iPad is no less amazing today than it was last week, but it feels that way…

Very few Apple fans can afford to buy each and every new product release, and the feeling of being slightly “out of date” is something that we’ve all come to accept as the norm. This isn’t exactly a bad thing. Let’s face it – a twelve month old iPad is still a long, long way ahead of any other competing device on the market.

But how does Apple’s release cycle operate, and is their approach working?

Earlier today Apple made good on their promise to wow us once more with yet another new multi-touch wonder: the iPad 2 (Steve Jobs himself kicked off the presentation).

Rumors have been flying for months about what it would and wouldn’t include, many of which were proven true, though as always Apple still had a few surprises up its sleeve.

Keep reading to see what the hype is all about. We’ll go over all the details of the new and improved iPad so you can see whether or not it’s time to give in and get one!

Well, the end of 2010 is almost upon us! It’s been a fantastic year of technology releases, and announcements – not just in our Apple bubble, but across the whole industry.

For me personally, my iPad has changed the way I read, the iPhone 4 completely revolutionised my appreciation of screen technology, and I finally got around to purchasing an SSD (the verdict is in – they’re astounding).

A few weeks ago, I published a few thoughts on what I considered to be the Best Mac Software of 2010, but there’s a whole lot to look forward to over the coming year.

Whether you’re stoked about OS X Lion, excited to try out the Mac App Store, or on the edge of your seat about the iPad 2, 2011 is going to be an action packed year for Apple users everywhere.

But what’s the one thing that you really can’t wait for? Let us know in our weekly poll, and we’ll be extra sure to bring you plenty of news and coverage around that particular event next year!
