The highlight of Apple’s yearly calendar, the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), gives you the best insight into what’s coming next from Apple.
Only Apple really knows what’s up its sleeve. Dead certainties include the next version of OS X (code-named Gala), the arrival of iOS 9 for the iPhone and iPad, Apple’s plans for the internet of things (IoT) in the form of various HomeKit, HealthKit and other ecosystem technologies, new firmware for the Apple Watch, and much more.
The highlight of this year’s event is likely to be music and, more specifically, what the future holds for iTunes following Apple’s acquisition last year of Beats for US$3bn.
All-in-all, WWDC will feature more than 100 technical sessions and some 1,000 Apple engineers will manage hands-on labs.
The event is one of the most coveted in the tech world – tickets cost US$1,599 each and are only granted through a lottery.
“We’ve got incredible new technologies for iOS and OS X to share with developers at WWDC and around the world, and can’t wait to see the next generation of apps they create,” said Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.
Apple’s keynote from the Moscone Center in San Francisco begins today (8 June) at 10am PST, which is 6pm London and Dublin time.
