During Apples WWDC event the photo bellow was shown for a brief moment and on it we see many new features for iOS 8 that Apple didn’t talk much about or didn’t talk about at all during the event. One of those features includes WiFi calling, and T-Mobile has now confirmed in an announcement that it will enable the feature for iPhone users on its network when iOS 8 is relesed later this year.
Apple just put up a banner for iOS 8 at the Moscone Center for next weeks WWDC event.
Apples WWDC event we will be held on Monday, June 2-6 and will take place at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. It seems that Apple has started making preparations and has put up colorful WWDC 2014 posters.
Apple will be live streaming next week’s WWDC Keynote event for everyone to see on Macs running Safari 4 or later, iOS devices running iOS 4.2 or later, second or third generation Apple TV with software 5.0.2, and Windows running Quicktime 7. The event will be held on Monday, June 2nd and will begin at 10AM Pacific/1PM Eastern time.
Apple has revealed the schedule for it’s World Developer Conference. An Apple keynote will take place at Moscone West on Monday, June 2nd from 10am to 12pm. Apple CEO Tim Cook will probably be leading the event with the assistance from SVP’s Craig Federighi and Eddy Cue.
A Wall Street Journal report suggests Tim Cook’s company is about to take the wraps off a refreshed iCloud service at this year’s WWDC, which will place more emphasis on the social aspect of storing images. The new and improved service will allow images and photos to be shared, while also offering the ability for users to comment.
The Worldwide Developer Conference will indeed begin on June 11th, it has been confirmed by Apple itself. The conference is one of the fruit company’s main events, and in the past, has launched some of Apple’s most successful products to date. This year, as you’d expect, the main focal point will be the upcoming Mountain Lion OS for Mac, but workshops will focus on both iOS and OS X Mountain Lion, offering attendees guidance on how to enhance apps in terms of performance, quality, functionality and design.
Apple has been talking about OS X Lion for some time already, of course, but it’s now filled in most if not all of the remaining key details at WWDC. Dubbed a “major release” with over 250 new features, the OS adds things like a slew of new multi-touch gestures and full-screen apps (including iPhoto, iMovie, Safari, etc.), plus the all new Mission Control, which unifies Expose and Spaces, and the iOS-esque Launchpad application launcher. It also includes a new system-wide Resume feature that lets you pick up exactly where you left off, a new auto-save feature that automatically saves different versions of documents, the new AirDrop peer-to-peer file-sharing system, and a brand new version of Mail that finally includes a conversation view.
The OS will also now only be available in the Mac App Store as a 4GB download — which installs in place, no reboots — and it will run you just $29.99 for all of your authorized Macs. The latest developer preview is also available today.
Apple has unveiled a WWDC 2011 iOS App, featuring content directly related to the conference, which will kick of next week, on Monday, June 6th. Can you feel the excitement in the air?
The new app, which works on both iPads and iPhones, allows attenders to look at floor diagrams of the Moscone Center, the convention center where the conference will be taking place, as well as make reservations for sessions at the conference, look at the schedule of all the sessions and make your own schedule with the sessions you’ll be attending.
Had some doubts that Apple was heading skyward? Those lingering concerns can now be put to rest. Apple has confirmed that it will be announcing iCloud on June 6th, what it’s calling an “upcoming cloud services offering.” That will be part of the keynote for this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference, known to the cool kids as WWDC. This is, of course, where everyone has come to expect new iPhones to come to light, but this year we’re thinking the focus will be more on software, and indeed Apple’s event notice indicates that the big highlights will be Mac OS X Lion and the next version of its mobile operating system, iOS 5. This is a decidedly non-Apple way to announce something big like iCloud, making us wonder what other surprises Steve Jobs will have for us at the event — yes, he’ll be kicking things off. .
