The Worldwide Developers Conference of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) kicks off today and CNN’s David Goldman has what the publication thinks is a list of what the tech giant will likely reveal at their much anticipated event.
First on the list of what to expect in San Francisco today is iOS 8. Traditionally, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) unveils their newest version of its operating system for its mobile devices at this annual event and this year is expected to be no different. Rather than expecting a radically-altered iOS to be unveiled at the WWDC, Goldman noted that Tim Cook and company will likely reveal improvements to Maps, better notifications, a new iTunes Radio app, and a new healthbook app.
Another product that should be expected to be launched by Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is a new platform for home automation that has the iPad or iPhone as its core device. Goldman wrote that though there is some semblance of control of home devices with the iPad and iPhone, the Cupertino, California-based company would likely simplify this area.
Goldman also mentioned that Mac OS X 10.10 will likely debut at the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) conference. The new version of the OS that controls computers made by the company is expected to adopt the flatter design scheme first seen in iOS 7.
Speaking of computers, the iPhone-maker is also anticipated to launch new Macs at the WWDC. Goldman noted that possibly on the table at the event are new iMacs plus an improved MacBook Air which has a Retina Display.
As for what not to anticipate during the event, the CNN technology editor said that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) should not be expected to debut a new version of its Apple TV, a new iPhone, the much-rumored iWatch, or a new mobile payments system.
