Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) has usually been a platform to launch the company's new technologies and products. Following its tradition, rumors are on that the MacBook Pro 2012, and a smaller Apple tablet, iPad Mini may be launched during the WWDC which is scheduled to be held from June 11 to June 15 at San Francisco's Moscone West.

"Mountain Lion is one of the highlights of WWDC 2012, and with the new operating system, Apple might announce the redesigned MacBook Pro that sports the MacBook Air-like design (with no optical drive) and will come with a new processor, a new iSight camera and might ship with 4G LTE support," as posted in PopHerald.

The redesigned MacBook Pro is rumoured highlight its iCloud services, the App store and iTunes. The MacBook may also come with 2880×1800 pixel Retina display and if rumours are to be counted, it may also be built with liquidmetal.

"The Cupertino based tech giant Apple is reported to have an exclusive agreement with Liquidmetal Technologies to use the material since 2010. But so far its usage has remained negligible and the only thing Apple has produced with this material is a SIM ejection tool," writes NVO News.

Not only the MacBook Pro but the iPad Mini might be launched during the conference. Apple may launch the mini iPad as a competition for devices running on Windows 8s.

"Rumors about a smaller iPad have been circulating since before the March launch of the new iPad, which retained its 9.7-inch size. Back in December, there were reports that Apple had purchased 7.85-inch panels from LG Display and AU Optronics. Then in February the Wall Street Journal claimed to have a source who confirmed that Apple was testing the new, smaller screen line of tablets," writes PC MAG.

With Apple usually launching its latest technologies and new products during WWDC, will this year feature the redesigned MacBook Pro, or the mini iPad, or maybe even the next generation iPhone 5? Only time will tell.
