Sources familiar with Apple’s plans tell Code/red that Tim Cook will not use WWDC to unveil Apple’s mythical wearable device. Nor will he use it to show off a new Apple TV, or even preview the new software the company is developing for it. Which makes perfect sense, really. There’s little point in Apple unveiling a new OS in advance of a significant hardware update. As 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman reported Thursday, the big announcements at this year’s WWDC are going to be OS X 10.10 and iOS 8 and, perhaps, the rumored Healthbook app, Apple’s coming foray into health and fitness tracking.
We previously reported that Apple is working on an Apple TV update to support Siri-based voice control. The new update could also support new types of content such as apps. The new version of the Apple TV software is said to be in development alongside the aforementioned iOS 8.1 release, so it seems likely that the two systems will launch in tandem late in 2014 or early next year.
WWDC, of course, is scheduled to kick off in just 30 days on June 2, 2014, where Tim Cook and company will unveil the next major versions of OS X and iOS in San Francisco. We’ll bring you the latest coverage as it develops so stay tuned. While Tim Cook previously offered that Apple would release new products all across 2014, Apple only recently released an updated version of its MacBook Air line with a reduced price point being the main feature. Apple is also expected to release new versions of its iPhone and iPad later in the fall. As for WWDC next month, read our full report here on the latest of what to anticipate.
