Apple’s WWDC will be taking place in the middle of the year and if you were hoping that Apple would take the opportunity to announce a new product, like the iWatch or maybe a revamped Apple TV, you could be disappointed. This is according to Re/code’s John Paczkowski who claims that his sources have informed him otherwise.
According to Paczkowski, “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.”
Instead it seems that WWDC will be more focused on software, like the upcoming OS X 10.10 and iOS 8, which we guess is to be expected since WWDC is catered towards developers of Apple’s software. Paczkowski’s sources also seems to confirm an earlier report by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who revealed what he thinks is Apple’s roadmap for 2014.
Kuo’s report states that devices like the new iPhone, iPad, iWatch, and Apple TV will only be launched in the later part of the year, towards the end of Q3 2014 to be exact, which is why we can’t say we’re too surprised to find out that WWDC will be keeping its focus on software, not hardware.
Of course nothing is official until Apple makes it official, but in the meantime we suggest that you keep your hopes and expectations down to a minimum, lest you end up being disappointed. However for Mac and iOS users, we guess there’s still the changes and upgrades in OS X 10.10 and iOS 8 that we can look forward to.
