Apple’s yearly Worldwide Developers’ Conference (WWDC) is set to begin today. June 2nd, 2014. The keynote address will be starting at 10AM PDT/ 1PM ET, meaning for us here in Trinidad and Tobago, that is 1PM. We can think of a lot of new things that can be announced at this event, but we have to wait and see what releases officially.
Yes, this event will be available for live stream, so this means we can all stream the event live to see all that Apple has in store for us. What’s the catch? Well, if you want to live stream this event, it requires OS X 10.6 or later running any Safari version over 4, or Safari on iOS 4.2 and above. If you’re streaming via an Apple TV, you will need a second or third generation Apple TV running 5.0.2 or later.
The live stream can be found here: https://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2014/
WHAT TO EXPECT
- We can obviously expect to see iOS 8, seeing as there have been images around the web of the iOS 8 banners for WWDC 2014.
- OSX 10.10 for Mac.
- New software and/or products that assist in creating “smart homes” or Home Automation. This would be really cool depending on how it is implemented.
It is highly unlikely that there will be any new releases of smartphones or tablets, since the launch date for most iPhone’s were around the September/October period over the last few launches. However, due to the fact that Apple has recently been offering iPads and discounted prices, there is a slight chance that we can MAYBE see a new one later today at WWDC.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
I’m definitely excited to see what Apple has in store with iOS 8 and Mac OSX 10.10. Sure, iOS 8 might not be as much of an overhaul as iOS 7 was, but I hope we see a lot of new features as well as improvements of existing ones.
