iPad 3 / Apple TV Predictions

I just heard about the site that is taking bets on what Apple is planning on announcing next week – it inspired me to make a few predictions on my own (note that I am not placing bets though)

iPad

  • It will be called the iPad 3 (not the 2s)
  • Will have a “retina display”
  • 12 megapixel camera
  • Offered in 32, 64, and 128 gig models
  • Battery life will be increased by 50%
  • New processor “system on a chip”
  • new iOS release with better integration with iCloud
  • better “touch” capabilities (think finer input for drawing more fine details on the higher resolution display)
  • same form factor, no major changes in the physical design
  • new covers, available in 6 colors

Apple TV

  • New set-top box, an upgrade to the existing offering
  • new “Apple TV app store”
  • iOS version to better batch iPhone and iPad
  • Microphone for Siri input
  • 1080p
  • no announcement on an actual physical television
  • New iOS remote app
  • FaceTime camera ore input for a web-cam

  1. Sounds about right.

    I think the Camera upgrade will be more for the front cam – FaceTime HD than the rear facing. Regarding thickness, I think the back case will be slightly thicker but the glass slightly thinner for an overal thickness nearly identical. I think your battery estimates are overly optimistic. Also, I would add LTE capability with world band modem so no need for separate VZ / AT&T versions. Last thing, I think storage stays the same unless they increase the starting price.

    Im 13 and i really want to start a blog?

  3. I’d see all kinds of ads about blogging on the Internet to earn money, but don’t know of anybody that has actually made any money this way. I’d love to hear from anybody who has..

  4. My Firefox stopped working saying the server wasn’t found but Internet Explorers still works. I used to use firefox all the time but only recently it stopped working. I already checked the firewall and it allows firefox so i don’t know what’s wrong..
