What can we expect from Apple’s WWDC 14?
28 May, 2014 | Technology
Apple has announced their Worldwide Developers Conference 2014, which will take place on the 2nd June and will be broadcast live via its website and on a channel on the Apple TV.
Anticipation is building up to see what Apple is likely to unveil at this year's WWDC…
What to expect at WWDC 2014
Last year, Apple unveiled several new products and upgrades including iOS 7, a new MacBook Air and Pro, among other things but what can we expect this year?
Apple has already told us that we will be getting the first look at the new iOS and OS X at WWDC 2014 but what else may be unveiled? And what new features will the iOS and OS X have?
It is unlikely that the iOS 8 will bring in any major changes due to the huge update with iOS 7 last year but many rumours have been going around about the ‘Healthbook’ app. We are also likely to see major improvements to Siri and Apple Maps.
However it is possible that Apple may choose to not release the Healthbook until it reveals the iWatch which is expected to be released later this year.
OS X 10.10
Very little is known about the OS X 10.10 update but it is likely to bring in some significant visual improvements.
Rumours are leaning towards a flatter interface inspired by the iOS 7 redesign but nothing too drastic is expected.
The latest rumour is that Apple will be announcing a ‘Smart Home’ platform, which gives the iPhone control of household items such as lighting control, security systems and many other household gadgets.
A few rumours regarding a redesigned set-top box has been floating around for a while, which will support iOS games and also the App Store. However reports suggest it isn’t ready for release just yet and is likely to be released later this year.
Everyone is still waiting on the much anticipated iWatch but again it looks like we may have to wait a little bit longer.
The iWatch is expected to feature health sensors, which will be able you to track steps, sleep quality, heart rate and calories burned.
The iWatch is also expected to integrate with iOS devices, allowing users to receive texts, notifications and possible access features through Siri.
All we be revealed next week and we will keep you up-to-date with all of Apples latest releases...
