It’s been a typically quiet first few months of the year for Apple, but June is when things generally move into, well, first gear, and the Californians are all set to stage their annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) this coming Monday.
While WWDC has recently become more developer-centric (it served as the launch platform for the iPhone until 2010), it’s been suggested that Apple might unveil new hardware, and indeed Team Cook will stream its “exciting announcements” around the globe.
That’s the good word straight from Apple’s mouth, under the ‘Apple Events’ section of its official website.
“Watch streaming video from this special event and learn more about our exciting announcements”, yells Apple.
In order to live stream, you’ll need Safari 4 or later on OS X v10.6 or later; Safari on iOS 4.2 or later; or a second- or third-gen Apple TV device running software 5.0.2 or later.
Apple is expected to launch an iPhone 6 (4.7in and 5.5in), iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3 and iWatch this year, though the front-runners for WWDC 2014 are the Retina MacBook Air, and perhaps an upgraded Apple TV service.
Full story on Monday, just five days from now. The primary keynote goes down at 10am California time; unless I'm very much mistaken, that's 6pm to you, me and Nigel Farage's Britain.
