Apple Gears Up for WWDC: Tech Weekly

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Apple (AAPL - Get Report) is holding its Worldwide Developers' Conference next week, and the buzz surrounding the event is incredibly strong.

Apple is expected to launch several new products at the event, including new computers and a new mobile operating system. The tech giant may even mention the company's oft-rumored television set.

Rumors have been flying about what Apple could announce this year, with talk about the iPhone 5 and an Apple television intensifying.

One of the main attractions at WWDC will likely be Apple's next mobile operating system, iOS 6. Among the expected additions is a new map app, Siri support for the iPad, Facebook (FB - Get Report) integration, automatic updates for apps, a change in the user interface coloring scheme, and perhaps the ability to swipe with two fingers, as well as several other features.

Rumors about Apple's new television have swirled seemingly forever, but there have also been rumblings about a new operating system for the existing Apple TV.

"Apple may possibly introduce a new Apple TV OS for the current set-top-box device, we believe it would just be another UI [user interface] on top of iOS 6," wrote Jefferies & Company analyst Peter Misek in a note. "New content bundles and partnerships may be announced as well as we believe video and TV will be the major focus."

Shares of Apple gained 3.45% during the week to close at $580.32.
