Looking back: The 2012 WWDC keynote - iOS 6, Apple Maps, OS X 10.8 and more!

We're finally here! Well, almost anyway. WWDC 2013 gets underway in just a few hours, so if you're looking for a great time killer then why not look back on last years WWDC presentation. As previously, there was no new iPhone hardware, but we did get iOS 6 complete with Apple Maps, OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and the launch of the new Retina Display MacBook Pro.

Most of us will be familiar with iOS 6 by now, but it was first shown off 12 months ago with a raft of updates under the hood, plus some more front facing ones. One such item was the replacement of Google Maps with Apple's own Maps app. What happened afterwards is a story for another day, but it was nevertheless a bold step from Apple.

WWDC 2012 also brought us the latest version of OS X, 10.8 Mountain Lion, which built upon Lion and added such new features as the iMessage compatible Messages app, a reminder app that syncs with your iOS device, Notification Center, and much more.

Hardware wise, the talk of the show was the new MacBook Pro with the 15-inch Retina Display. At launch, this was unlike any other laptop display ever made, and 12 months on is still up there with the very best.

So, that's our roundup complete. 2007 through to 2012, and now we await the 2013 chapter with huge anticipation. Enjoy!
