It has been a couple of weeks since Apple made public that this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference will kick off on June 2nd. Earlier today it announced the schedule of all the events that will take place at the conference. Even though the company has traditionally hosted a keynote on the very first day, today an official confirmation has been rolled out that the Apple WWDC 2014 keynote is locked in for June 2nd.
They keynote will be kicked off by Apple CEO Tim Cook who will most likely be backed up by senior executives like Eddy Cue and Craig Federighi. Cook will first talk about the company in general before making major software related announcements. A report published today suggests that new hardware might also be unveiled at this year’s conference.
While iOS 8 and OS X 10.10 are expected to hog the spotlight, new hardware is certainly an exciting prospect. It is rumored that the company is working on a smartwatch, a full fledged TV and even a revamped Apple TV set-top box. Other rumors have suggested that the company might launch the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 at WWDC 2014. There’s no confirmation as yet on exactly what device we can expect Apple to show off.
Given all the buzz recently about Apple’s planned acquisition of Beats Music, it is also believed that the company might formally unveil this deal at the conference and even introduce Beats Music co-founders Dr.Dre and Jimmy Iovine as new Apple executives at WWDC 2014.
Fortunately WWDC 2014 is less than two weeks away so there’s not a lot of waiting involved. We just have to be a little patient to find out what Apple has got up its sleeve.
