Apple Will Reportedly Not Announce New Hardware At The WWDC 2013

One rumour that the tech world can’t really decide upon is whether or not Apple will be releasing a cheaper/entry-level iPhone alongside the iPhone 5S. A new report from China Times via UnwiredView has surfaced today, however, and is in favour of Apple releasing two iPhone models this year.

Apparently an analyst from Citigroup Global Securities has issued a new note “reporting that the iPhone 5S and a cheaper iPhone would be available starting early September“. The cheaper iPhone was reported to be a TD-SCDMA version that would go on sale in China through China Mobile in late September or early October. Both the 5th generation iPad and 2nd generation iPad Mini were also reported to be released in September or October as well.

Apple May Not Release New Hardware At The WWDC 2013

Will the WWDC 2013 be home to any hardware announcements this year?

What is interesting about this particular report is that if the release dates mentioned are correct, then it means the WWDC 2013 will not see any new hardware announcements. This could very well be the case as well as Apple has done this in the past, sticking to strictly software. Furthermore, we heard that Apple was having a hard time with some of the components of next-generation iOS Devices.

We learned yesterday that the WWDC 2013 would be taking place between June 10th and June 14th and that we would see previews of iOS 7 and OS X 10.9. What do you think? Will Apple announce any new hardware at the WWDC 2013? Let us know in the comments section below.

    Hope we’ll see new f**king devices, apple become disappointing lately. I’m still using my iPad 2 & my iPhone 4S . I need new powerful toys, not just screen pix & very little tiny bigger screen like iPhone 5 with light weights. Need something new screaming please buy me. I want to see the wow factor.
    Come on apple surprise everyone.

    Same here. iPad 2 and iPhone 4S because the updated versions aren’t really special. The 5 is a huge disappointment and if the next iPhone is a 5S, than I’ll gladly wait until the “6”.
