This is a rumor roundup of what can we expect from Apple next week:
Mac OS X 10.7 Lion
A Gold Master (GM) build of Mac OS X Lion is delivered to Apple developers July 1 and Apple has publicly mentioned that Mac OS X 10.7 Lion will release in July. Apple has also started accepting Lion apps into its Mac App Store starting this week July 13, suggesting a public release of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion is very near.
LED Cinema Display
Picture of a MacBook Pro connected to two LED Cinema Displays daisy-chained via Thunderbolt suggested great possibility of a refresh of LED Cinema Displays sporting Thunderbolt connectors.
The last Mac Pro refresh happened on August 2010. It’s about time for a refresh as the current Mac Pro is sporting the last generation Intel CPUs and lacks the high speed Thunderbolt ports expected in high-end Macs. All signs point to a debut of new Mac Pro together with Thunderbolt equipped LED Cinema Display.
There has been rumors of a MacBook Air refresh ever since Intel debut its Sandy Bridge processor beginning this year. The last AirBook Air refresh was October 2010. Many expect the new MacBook Air to sport the latest Sandy Bridge processor, bigger RAM and disk, Thunderbolt port and backlit keyboard.
