Apple’s annual Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) is just around the corner where many will be expecting the Cupertino based company to reveal new hardware.
According to a new report, Apple will not showcase any new hardware at the WWDC 2014. So, all those of you who were expecting Apple to reveal the highly anticipated iWatch, or a refreshed Apple TV should be in for a disappointment, if the report is correct.
The report surfaced from Re/code, where John Paczkowski mentioned that Apple will not announce any new device. He further went with what Mark Gurman of 9to5Mac reported recently, and said this year’s even will be focused on OS X 10.10 and iOS 8. There’s also a chance that we might see something about the rumored Healthbook app, but its not confirmed at the moment.
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. Which makes perfect sense, really. There’s little point in Apple unveiling a new OS in advance of a significant hardware update. As 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman reported Thursday, the big announcements at this year’s WWDC are going to be OS X 10.10 and iOS 8 and, perhaps, the rumored Healthbook app, Apple’s coming foray into health and fitness tracking.
WWDC 2014 is set to take place in San Francisco’s Moscone West center from June 2nd and will last until June 6th. Excited? Sound off in the comments below.
