Apple (AAPL) does not plan to use the company’s developers conference on June 2, to unveil any new category-defining hardware. That news comes from Re/code’s John Paczkowski (who has strong Apple sources) who confirms the event will focus on Apple’s upcoming Mac operating system update OS X 10.10, which is expected to be a major revision, and the next version of iOS, iOS 8.[via Re/code]“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 reported this week, Apple’s upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference will focus mostly on OS X and iOS 8. However, several key features previously intended for iOS 8 could be pushed back to iOS 8.1.
iOS 8 is expected to have a new fitness app called Healthbook, an app the iPhone maker is said to be developing to aggregate fitness and health information, but not much else in terms of cool new features.
Apple’s WWDC runs June 2-6.
