Excited for Apple’s WWDC? Many are, and anticipating a few category-breakers from Cupertino. The highly rumored (but never seen) iWatch is expected to come out then, as is a refreshed Apple TV. The iPhone 6 may also make an appearance, but according to sources, there will be no new Apple TV or wearable.
Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference, which is slated for the first week of June in San Francisco, had a new ticket application process that was revealed earlier this month. Those who didn't manage to get a ticket could get another chance, it has been revealed, with unclaimed tickets being up for grabs again.
Apple has confirmed dates for its Worldwide Developers Conference, WWDC 2014, which will take place June 2th through June 6th in San Francisco, along with news of a new ticket application process aiming to cut out some of the mad rush for access. Registration for WWDC is already open, but for 2014 it's no longer a first-come, first-served process.
Apple's WWDC 2013 developer session videos have turned up on YouTube, giving an insider insight into what's due in iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks later this year. The footage - nearly 100 videos including covering the changes in AirPrint, how best to make use of iAd, and how OS X push notifications will work - offers non-developers a glimpse of the goodies that registered iOS/OS X developers have had access to for some time.
This year's WWDC keynote revealed both the next generation in Apple's mobile operating system and their change of name re-track of their desktop-based OS X. With iOS 7, Jony Ive's look and feel are rather apparent with a top-to-bottom adjustment to the operating system along with some pointed connections to the desktop side of things. Apple's update to OS X, on the other hand, sees a slightly less drastic adjustment happening: and no, that's not OS X Sea Lion, it's more of a wave sort of situation.
Less than an hour after its completion, Apple has delivered the entirety of its 2013 WWDC keynote address in video form, available for the replay for all those who didn't watch in the first place. This presentation includes the introduction of OS X Mavericks (aka OS X 10.9) to the public along with iOS 7, a significant redesign in the way Apple's mobile operating system looks and functions.
In Apple's 2013 developers conference main keynote, the company showed a select few bits and pieces in the hardware realm. While no new mobile devices were unleashed, the desktop environment was given a bit of a bump with a MacBook Air refresh as well as a total re-thinking of the way the Mac Pro exists: 1/8th the size of its predecessor.
Apple let it be known that iOS 7 will be bringing on AirDrop to the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch for an extra bit of ease in sharing media between devices this week at WWDC 2013. This feature brings Apple mobile devices the same level of ease MacBook and other desktop systems were able to use in the past - this system joins iCloud Photo Sharing where streams are able to be shared over the web - public or private, your choice.
Just as Apple teased last year at this same annual event, a covered banner has been hung - floating above the crowds at WWDC 2013 waiting to get in to the week's first major keynote. This banner is the same size as those already unveiled on the first level of the Moscone Center where the developer event is taking place, here covered from view promises something entirely new.
Apple will live-stream the WWDC 2013 opening keynote, it's been confirmed, with the Apple TV getting a special feed from the San Francisco developer conference kicking off today. A new app for the Apple STB has been added overnight, "Apple Events", which when opened promises the full keynote stream from 10am Pacific today. Updated after the cut.
Apple's "flat" iOS 7 refresh has been previewed, with reportedly eyes-on leaks tipping a more matte finish to the iconography along with the potential for two different color schemes. The new interface, apparently demonstrated in early beta form to 9to5Mac and then mocked-up to bypass Apple's watermarking, uses the same slimline font as we've already seen Apple adopt at its WWDC 2013 venue, while the graphics do away with fake 3D effects and, in some cases, are changed completely.
