WWDC 2012 – Apple TV Apps

I’m lucky enough to be attending the WWDC this year, as it reaches closer to the “day of the long queue” my thoughts are turning to what I hope will be announced at the conference. So here they are in no real order (apart from the first one)

  1. Ability to run apps on the Apple TV and use your iOS device as a controller, including multiple devices at the same time
  2. Open up Siri to 3rd party apps, although how they work out which app gets to answer the question could be interesting
  3. NFC, this could open up some interesting projects
  4. Allow companies to create internal documentation using iBooks and give them a secure way of distributing those documents to staff
  5. Increase the number of testing devices that can be used
  6. Improved battery life on the iPhone
  7. 4G iPhone, but at the moment I’m not fussed either way, being based in the UK
  8. A nicer gift, like a limited edition iPad (I can dream)

I’ll add to the list as I think of things, but its a start, wonder if any of them will come true.


  • Move away from Google Maps, with the ability to use maps offline

Let me know what you hope to see announced?

See what I do

  1. I’m with you on the first 2. I would be happy is either one happens. Apple TV apps seem inevitable, but when is any ones guess.

  2. Absolutely agree on the improved battery life. They have to come up with something. Because it’s becoming really frustrating to recharge the battery almost daily.
