Apple has announced that its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will start on 8th lune, when Apple iOS 9 and also the next version of the Mac OS are set to be revealed. The five-day event will take place in San Francisco and can feature the regular opening day keynote when Apple will unveil its plans for the os’s. “We’ve got incredible new technologies for iOS and OS X to share with designers at WWDC and around the planet, and can’t wait to see the next generation of apps they create,” said Apple’s Phil Schiller, Those expecting big changes to iOS itself might be disappointed.
Reports suggest that Apple iOS 9 will be something of a clean-up operation, looking to fix the bugs and stabilize the code of an operating system that has been through two major overhauls with iOS 7 and iOS 8. Apple is also expected to reduce the impact of the operating-system, providing some important extra storage space for those operating entry-level devices with either 8GB or 16GB of storage space.
Apple is also widely expected to expose it’s plans for the Beats music streaming app, after acquiring Dr Dre’s service for $3 billion last year. Many are predicting that Apple will unleash a ‘Spotify killer’, with Apple quietly wooing recording artists over recent months. Apple this week released a beta of iOS 8.4, which included a revamped version of the Music software for the iPhone/iPad working system. However, Beats is expected to perform as an entirely separate software. If iOS 9 is a rather muted release, it might provide the opportunity for Apple to make a lot more of a splash with a fresh version of OS X. Although it’5 experienced many iterations and is virtually unrecognizable through the initial release, OS X is now 14 years old, and Apple may decide it is time to move to OS Xl; not minimum as the naming convention of OS X has become getting decidedly awkward, with the last release incongruously referred to as OS X 10410, which numerically slips behind 2002’s OS X 1042, With Microsoft set to launch Windows 10 come early july, a major new form of the Mac OS could also steal its thunder.
