What kinds of things can we expect at the 2014 conference?
With the June 2 start date of the WWDC coming, there is still a lot of speculation going on about what we will see, how near a release will be, and what kind of price we’ll be looking at. Fortunately, we do know a bit about what will be coming.
Apple Balla reports that one of the major Apps that will be coming in the next year is the Healthbook app that will certainly play a large role in the iWatch as well as iOS 8. The Healthbook app is going to track glucose levels, oxygen levels, pulse, blood pressure, and so much more. They have already brought in a lot of experts for sensor technology, so this is sure to be an exciting one.
Product-wise, there is also a lot of devices coming down the pipeline. A new iPhone is coming out later on this year, with multiple sizes, although we don’t know if it will be shown at the conference. In addition, iPads, Apple Tvs, and more will likely be announced for the first time.
A recent development that we’ll see more about at the conference is the Beats deal that is rumored to be close. By paying an incredible $3.2 billion for the company, Apple is making one of its largest purchases ever and ensuring that they have a way to stay on top of the music game regardless of whether they come up with the technology on their own.
We’ll see how much of this is revealed in total, but this is certainly going to be an exciting year for Apple as a whole, with new software, new hardware, and new ideas on the horizon.
