ios 8 unveil

There has been no shortage of rumors about what to expect from Apple at WWDC 2014. On Monday its annual developers conference kicks off. The keynote is penciled in for the first day when CEO Tim Cook and top brass take the stage to make some announcements. We know software is on the agenda and there’s little doubt that the focus will be on iOS and OS X. If you had any doubts about what the next iOS iteration might be called images from the conference site put them to rest. iOS 8 is most definitely on the agenda for WWDC 2014.

The keynote takes place at Moscone Center which is being dressed up for the event on Monday. Banners have been put up both inside and out. Particularly large banners with the number “8″ have also been put up which is as close as it gets to an official confirmation prior to the keynote itself.

iOS 8 isn’t expected to bring any major user interface improvements, however it is believed to focus heavily on mobile health and fitness tracking. Apple is expected to show off OS X 10.10 as well which if reports are true might end up being called OS X Yosemite. Last year’s iteration was called OS X Mavericks. Seems like Apple is sticking to California-inspired naming theme.

There has been chatter about new hardware making the cut as well, but since the event is less than 24 hours away, no use in speculating about that now. We just have to wait for a little bit longer.
