With WWDC right around the corner rumors are running high with news about new iMacs, MacBook Airs, and more.

Here’s what I think we can hope to see at WWDC:

1. With Intel’s new Ivy-bridge processors out, and Apple’s whole computer line-up awaiting an update we can will definitely predict that Apple’s new machines will definitely carry the Ivy-Bridge Chips.

2. USB 3.0 is becoming more and more popular, and rumors from 9to5mac show that USB 3.0 will replace USB 2.0 in all future Macs

3. More RAM: Currently the most RAM an Apple Macbook can hold is 8 GB, but rumors are showing MacBook Pro models with up to 16 Gigs of RAM. Now that would be one monster laptop.

4. Apple’s top-of-the line Mac, the Mac Pro, has not been updated for 2 years. And sources are showing a scarcity in Mac Pro’s at Apple Stores. Professional workers would love to see a new Mac Pro, so hopefully we will see an update next week.

5. 15-inch MacBook Air. For a couple of months there have been rumors that Apple is adding another model to their MacBook Air line. So we can assume that it will be the 15-inch. But we don’t know weather their is enough technology to create a 17-in MacBook Air

6. Retina Display Macs: Display technology has become more and more advanced. And some images found in the source code of Mountain Lion show images with a large number of pixels that would only fit on a Retina Display.

6. iOS 6: Pictures below show that Apple will be showing iOS 6 off and most probably release developer versions. Some features we might see in iOS 6 are Facebook sharing integrated into Apps, Siri for the iPad, Apple’s new Maps app, and iCloud improvements.

7. Mountain Lion: Versions of Mountain Lion have already been seeded out to Developers so we can probably hope to see Apple release Mountain Lion to the public at WWDC.

8. Apple TV SDK: Sales of the Apple TV has been steadily increasing and at AllThing’s D’s D12 conference Tim Cook stated that the Apple TV had become something Apple would pay more attention to. So we might see Apple release an Apple TV SDK, so the Apple TV can become a more attractive offer to people.

All of this seems like too much to be releases at one WWDC keynote, but these are just predictions that may or may not come true.
