Apple's WWDC 2014 was pretty uneventful considering it is comfortably the most watched and scrutinized developer conference in the world. There has been little backlash against Cupertino, something that regular WWDC viewers will know has been a common occurrence. Typically after the event, there are more discussions on what Apple hasn't done compared to what it has, but this year is different. Read More »
Comments Off on Apple’s “massive mistake” at WWDC, not quite
Just where is Apple right now; on the road to further growth or the road to ruin? Your opinion may well depend on who you listen to, but the truth probably lies somewhere between those two extremes. Wall Street and the wider investor brigade are certainly worried by Apple's lack of new products over the last few years and some even think the Cupertino bubble has burst. Read More »
Comments Off on Do Apple’s figures tell the whole story?
So, as we expected, there were no major surprises at Apple's WWDC keynote speech today. There were no new products and not even a hint of them. A low key developer conference is accepted for most companies, but not for Apple, with WWDC likely to have analysts predicting doom and gloom for the brand. However, this event is not about product, but software, so with iOS 8 now out in the wild, you may be wondering if it will be coming to your Apple device. Read More »

Comments Off on Why you will not see new products at WWDC
The Apple World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) is a month away and will be the place where Apple launches a number of new features related to iOS. It will also be the site where Apple debuts a new interconnected "Smart Home" platform. The Financial Times reports that Apple plans to make a "big play" to create a system that would link home lighting, Apple TV, audio equipment, and other devices under one system. Read More »
Comments Off on Apple is building “Smart Home” for WWDC
It has widely been reported that Apple might use WWDC as the place to debut its iOS wearable device unofficially called the iWatch. Anyone hoping those rumors might be proven accurate at next month's developer's conference will sadly be disappointed to learn that the likelihood of that happen has fallen.
Mark Gurman and John Paczkowski have both reported that Apple will not debut any new products at WWDC. Gurman of 9to5Mac and Paczkowski of Recode (formerly the Wall Street Journal/All Things D) have two of the best track records when it comes to Apple event rumors and both of them say Apple will not launch an iWatch. Instead, WWDC will focus on software. We will see what's new iOS 8, including the new Health book app that tracks fitness and health stats, and lots of new additions to OS X. However, there won't be much hardware news.
There's a small chance that both writers are wrong, but the odds of that happening are small. WWDC will be the launch of Healthbook, so one would think that Apple would use it as an opportunity to discuss its health-oriented wearable; however, that doesn't seem to be the case. On the bright side, you can look forward to a lot of new things in the software that powers your phone, tablets, and your computer. Your watch will be updated some other time.
