Apple Roundup: New iPhone, WWDC, iOS 6, Apple TV

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Some of Tuesday's top Apple's ( AAPL) stories include what features the new iOS will have, what the new iPhone might look like and more news about the Apple TV.

Apple's new mobile operating system, iOS 6, is thought to include Apple's new in-house mapping software, moving away from Google's ( GOOG) option. Apple blog 9to5Mac has pictures of what the maps will look like. It's incredible to see Central Park or San Francisco's Financial District in 3D in the palm of your hands.
Today's Apple stories include news on the Apple TV and WWDC.

Apple's Chinese manufacturer Foxconn has reportedly begun taking orders for the oft-rumored Apple TV, and is currently in the "trial production stage."

Various reports have said the television set would be available this year, with others saying it would be available in 2013 and some have said it may launch as far out as 2014.

In a few weeks is Apple's developer conference, WWDC. The schedule for the conference has been posted, and Apple even created an app to help make scheduling an easier task. I guess when they say "There's an app for that," there really is an app for that.

Apple blog iFixyouri has what may be the first picture of the back and side of the new iPhone. It shows off the smaller dock connector that people have been talking about, and may be thinner than Apple's current form factor for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. There's also talk the iPhone would come in other colors than black and white, but Apple hasn't deviated from those two color schemes for any of its iDevices, so for now, we'll take this with a grain of salt.

Shares of Apple are higher in Tuesday trading, up 1.63% to $571.47.
