Apple will host its World Wide Developers Conference, or WWDC, on June 8th. The conference is a big annual get-together for the company, where it usually unveils a variety of new products, including new versions of the iOS and OS X operating systems in addition to new Macs and iPads. The impact of the event was huge last year, as it got the company back on track after a slow start, and market analysts will be keeping a close eye on what could be revealed during the conference over the next two months.
At last year’s event, Apple unveiled the iOS 8 for the iPhone and iPad, OS X Yosemite for the Mac, its HomeKit set of tools for developers to make connected home devices work with Apple products and more. It is almost a certainty that the company will reveal the iOS 9, the new operating system for the iPhone and iPad, which will focus on improved stability and optimisation improvements over new design and features. The new Mac OS X, titled Mojave, should also be previewed, while attendees could be provided with an update on the new Macs revealed on March 9th along with the Apple Watch.
The most exciting possible new product to be revealed at the conference is the long-rumored revamped Apple TV. The set top box has not been updated in a long time, and it is believed that Apple hopes to revamp the entire home with this new product. A hint at this can be seen at the invite to the conference, seen above, where the figure in the middle is in the shape of an Apple TV with the words ‘The Epicenter Of Change.’ The Apple TV, which will allow people to pick which channels to include in their television package for streaming, will also act as the central hub of Apple’s HomeKit, with Siri being the perfect controller for the rest of the home.
