What can we expect from WWDC 2015?

It’s almost that time of year again, WWDC 2015 is just around the corner but what can we expect from Apple this year?

The Worldwide Developers Conference is always a big event for Apple fans and on the 8th of June Apple will unveil what they have been up to over the last few months. But what do we think will be in the line-up this year?

1) iOS 9

WWDC is always the event where Apple talks about their operating systems. The new iOS is expecting to be getting Apple’s Beats Music powered app and we also expect iOS and OS X to be built on Handoff and Continuity creating new ways to allow Macs and iOS devices to work together.

We are also expecting the default system font to change to San Francisco, the font used by the Apple Watch.

2) An Apple TV

Don’t get your hopes up just yet, the Apple TV set supposedly still isn’t ready but the Apple TV set top box is rumoured to be in the spotlight at WWDC. It is expected to be the hub for Apple’s HomeKit, the platform for intelligent and Siri-powered home automation.

We also think they might reveal its new TV streaming service, but this isn’t likely to be available in the UK for quite a while.

3) The iPad Pro

The 13 inch iPad Pro may not be ready for release but the rumours are too detailed for this not to happen. So we are hoping for a mention or a possible demo of this impressive iPad.

4) Split screen apps

Rumours also suggest that Apple is working on a split screen mode for iPads, enabling you to run two apps side by side.

5) Apple Watch updates

At the moment third party apps can’t run on the Apple Watch, instead they run on your phone but Apple did promise that developers would get the opportunity to create native apps (apps that will run on the Apple Watch like Apple’s own apps do).

Rumour has it this is going to change soon, possibly being announced at WWDC 2015. We hope this will be a possibility soon as it will make the Apple Watch so much more than an expensive toy.
