Didn't they blow their wad on Beats?

Ios8 will not be compatible with iPhone4. 4s and later only. The new Mac OS, 10.10 (Yosemite) seems nice, a free upgrade for existing X users, integrates OSX and iOS.
New apps are the home app to manage your home security and lights, and the health

We need a new iPhones. My hubby won't buy any until he finds out if a new iPhone is coming out this year. So yeah, I'm interested to see if I can get a new phone now or in September.

A new iPhone comes out every year. They alternate between major upgrades and minor upgrades. 5S was a minor upgrade so the next one should be major.

There's an iOS app to coordinate with WWDC (unsurprisingly named WWDC). Looks most useful for conference attendees, but non-attendees can stream the videos through the app.

Also Macworld is live-blogging it, as usual (along with probably a half dozen others): live.macworld.com/2014/06/WWDC/index.php

iOS 8, an even larger iPad (iPad Pro), an iPhone 6/6C (Possibly 2 sizes), iWatch, maybe iGlass..

iOS 8.0 looks like a promising upgrade with a few wanted/needed tweaks to 7.0. The iPhone 6 is what I'm really excited for. The iwatch, if it comes out, should be pretty awesome if it looks like what the rumors show.

We used to wait anticipating great products. Now we get marketing tweaks that are essentially boring.

The wwdc has been about software recently with some special press conference closer to the launch of devices. I don't expect this year to be any different.

They might have Iovine and/or Dre speak about the future of iTunes, which is in dire need of an GUI overhaul. I just want to know when iphone6 will be released.

iOS8 which is supposed to have health apps built in. Hoping!!

My bet is if they release a "Healthbook" that it will be accompanied with an "iWatch" because of how limited the app would be without one.

Won't happen. The vast majority like the redesign of 7. iOS 8 will keep that same design scheme but feature certain consumer asked functions. The guy in charge won't change the look again until AT LEAST 9 or 10. They change it now they risk a lot.

You know people that like it? I've heard nothing but negative about it, to the point that most of my friends that had iPhones switched to Androids, and I would too if mine wasn't a company phone.

Bigger iPhone, Beats acquisition fanfare, OS X 10.10, and maybe that thing that connects your house lights to your phone. Apple hasn't surprised anyone in years so don't get your hopes up.

And iOS 8! Oh yeah. Maybe they'll have ditched flat design. That would be nice.

anarchy GET OFF MY LAWN
06/02/14 4:38 am

My thoughts exactly kut. They'll roll out some basic, incremental upgrades to existing (and already underwhelming) tech...and then we get to hear them tout it as the greatest innovation the world has ever seen for the next 3 months.

CallMeSmith The Tardis
06/02/14 7:46 am

They won't drop the flat design. To many people like it/ have gotten used to it that the design won't change for another 1-2 major OS updates. Plus it works way to well with their display systems right now to go away.

I'm really hoping for a wearable smartphone done right, A watch that is the whole phone and full-featured, not just something tied to the brick in your pocket. Or a software innovation that lets you develop apps right on the iPad.

Nah. Itst usually about software and they won't be making any huge changes to Mac OS X and iOS, I'm sure. Later this fall there will be some surprises though, what with the new iPhone and probably a new line of Macbooks.
