Apple Dishes Details on Next WWDC

Apple is again gearing up for its Worldwide Developer Conference, where application creators and industry observers will be watching for the latest and greatest from the company behind the Mac, the iPod, iPhone and iPad.

Attendees will also be looking for the return of CEO Steve Jobs to the WWDC stage, following a health-related absence last year.

Another item that some expect to see on the agenda: details of new iPhone. Always a perennial hot topic, rumors about Apple’s next-generation iPhone have surged in intensity over the past several days following the controversial story of a lost iPhone prototype purchased from its finder by Gawker Media’s Gizmodo. The blog profiled the prototype in a story, which spurred a probe by local law enforcement despite the device being returned to Apple. Thanks in part to that notoriety, all eyes will be on WWDC to see how closely the prototype matches any new official details emerging from Apple. Datamation has the story.

Apple has set June 7 through 11 as the dates for its Worldwide Developer Conference, to be held once again in the San Francisco Moscone Center, the company announced.

Apple did not say who would deliver the keynote address. Last year, that role was filled by Apple’s (NASDAQ: AAPL) Phil Schiller, senior vice president of worldwide marketing, because CEO Steve Jobs was on medical leave while recovering from a liver transplant. Jobs has been the keynote speaker in prior years.
