CEO Tim Cook at last year's WWDC. Intimidating.
We've already written some of what you can expect from this year's WWDC over here, but if you're looking for the quick low-down, here are the main talking points:
- OS X: Expect a visual overhaul to bring it into line with iOS 7. This means less shadows and 3D wotsits, more sleek lines and slim fonts.
- iOS 8: Incremental changes will be the order of the day here. Big news would be Healthbook - an app to collect various health data - and maybe transferring some OS X apps (Preview for images and TextEdit for.. text editing).
- iPhone 6: Nope. Shh. Get outta here. You know this is a developers' conference, so don't expect a big suprise unveiling here of a new iPhone. Ditto the iWatch.
- Smart homes: This might be the most exciting news - a new scheme partnering with manufacturers to create smart light bulbs and dish washers, with the iPhone or iPad placed as a central remote control.
- Apple TV: Despite what we said about hardware, there might be some Apple TV news. Latest sales figures show it's definitely no 'hobby'. Finding new ways to integrate content could be key.
