Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is all set to host its annual event World Wide Developers Conference from 2nd June to 6th June, 2014 in San Francisco. The event will kick off with a key-note from Apple CEO Tim Cook. Apple teasers have led many to believe that some important announcement is on the way.

WWDC 2014

How to be a Part of the Prestigious Event?

Over one thousand Apple Engineers and five thousand developers are expected to attend the prestigious event. Tickets for the event were on lottery basis as against to first-come first-serve basis and had a quick sell-out. 5000 developers were randomly selected from the applicants. The cost of each ticket is $1,599.

Major Announcements

  • Apple has already made known that its main focus will be on OS X 10.10 and iOS 8 – the next version of mobile operating system.
  • The Cupertino based company might announce the launch of iWatch, feeling the heat from other brands in the wearable segment.
  •  Apple is eyeing the smart home industry whose estimated worth is $71 billion by 2018. Major announcement in this segment can be expected following acquisition of Nest by Google.
  • The tech company might announce and discuss HealthBook app and unveil a SDK to enable developers to create programs.
  • Apple could address the issue of iMessage bugs. The problem arises when users switch to another device but do not receive messages on the new device.

What Not To Expect?

It is very unlikely that Apple will announce iPhone 6 or another iPad in the conference although it may spill few beans on the screen size. However, it could indirectly confirm or dispel the rumors taking round about the bigger screen iPhone 6 by announcing iOS 8 compatible with bigger screen. Of course, Apple is tight-lipped on the matter. Besides, any announcements on smart TV are not expected.

Live Streaming

The key-note address and the design awards will be live streamed on the internet but the videos from other sessions will only be available for registered developers.

Apple’s WWD Conference is one of the most awaited event for the developers and tech enthusiasts. Apple engineers present more than 100 sessions to help developers in deploying and integrating latest iOS and OS X technologies. It provides developers to connect with thousands of fellow iOS and OS X developers over lunch and interactive sessions.
