Like many I am also eagerly waiting for the March 7th 2012 announcement from Apple:
There are a lot of predictions on what to expect – It seems from the buzz that iPad3 and an Apple TV is on the line.
There are many educated predictions on what to expect in terms of features and spec for these new devices : like the new A6 processor for both the iPad and Apple TV, Retina display for the iPad and higher resolution support on the Apple TV, support for Siri on both Apple TV and iPad
Let me offer my own predictions (what I would love to see)
1. Bluetooth 4.0 addition to iPad3 and Apple TV – Bluetooth 4.0 is already part of iPhone 4S , Mac Mini and Macbook Air – so its natural to expect iPad also to upgrade to Bluetooth 4.0
2. New Accessories and Apps that support Bluetooth 4.0 – I expect to see Nike+ shoes / Wrist-Band demoed on stage along with an iPad App (using the Bluetooth 4.0 technology to sync the device to the iPad)
New Keyboard / remote control devices for both iPad and Apple TV that uses Bluetooth 4.0 (significantly enhancing the battery life on those devices enabling battery to last for 2-3 years with coin cell batteries)
The iPad could be used as a feature rich remote control for the Apple TV (communicating over WiFi or Bluetooth 4.0).
