According to the website's “favorite (rumored) source” 9 to 5 Mac, the Cupertino firm will bring small updates to its MacBooks and MacBooks Pro at this Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2009, along with "major" updates for its professional applications (Final Cut Pro, Aperture, Logic and Shake).
The story speculates that laptops will gain 3G connectivity, speed improvements and changes in their batteries (will it migrate to the non-removable standard even on the most basic models?). Still, the somewhat dubious rumor, as in past WWDCs Apple has focused on the iPhone, Mac OS X and Macs Pro / Power Macs never on their notebooks and Pro Apps.
WWDC ’09 was announced almost a month ago and will be held between 8 and 12 June, in San Francisco (United States).
Update (4/22/09 s 9:15 am): O Mac Soda brings even more details about the update Pro Apps. According to them, the “100% confirmed” launch will involve a complete overhaul of the Color interface, new versions of Motion / Shake and native support for RED and XDCAM cameras.
But the best part is that, according to them, all software will have “big” improvements in performance. Really big. The “bad news” is that a good part of the evolution will depend on Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, but they guarantee that Final Cut Studio 3 running on the new system is something “nobody has ever seen in professional video editing”.
