Good piece from Jim Dalrymple on WWDC:
The important thing to remember about WWDC is that it is a
developer conference. It’s not a place where Apple is going to
show off the newest iPhone or iPad. These are Apple’s flagship
products and they demand separate events.
Pretty sure Jim’s right that there aren’t going to be new iPads or iPhones announced. But Apple did announce new iPhone hardware for a few years at WWDC: the 3G, 3GS, and 4. It’s just that the schedule for the iPhone changed. So I think it’s not so much that they wouldn’t announce a new iPhone or iPad during the WWDC keynote, but simply that they don’t yet have new iPhones or iPads to announce.
