Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s annual Worldwide Developer Conference is less than a month away. The event will take place in San Francisco between June 2-6. There have been plenty of rumors around the iWatch and Apple TV. But, citing unnamed sources, Re/code said that these products won’t be unveiled at the big event. Notably, the Apple TV and iWatch have been in the rumor mill for more than two years.
Is Apple really developing a new OS for its TV?
Re/code said that Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) CEO Tim Cook won’t even showcase “a new software” the tech giant is developing for its TV. It indicates that the rumors of Apple developing a new operating system for Apple TV could be true. The tech giant has in the past unveiled new hardware at WWDC. The company launched MacBook Air at 2013 WWDC and the MacBook Pro with retina display at the 2012 event.
But this time Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will focus on the next big versions of Mac OS X and iOS. The OS X 10.10, codenamed Syrah within the company, is likely to succeed the OS X Mavericks. According to Mark Gurman of 9to5Mac, it could be called “Yosemite” after the U.S. national park. Notably, the tech giant has acquired trademarks on California landmarks such as Yosemite, Diablo and Mammoth. The company could name the future versions of its operating systems after them. Internally, the iOS 8 is named “Okemo” in Cupertino.
Apple likely to highlight OS X 10.10 at WWDC
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is likely to cast more spotlight on the Mac OS X’s next version 10.10 at the WWDC. There are also speculations that the iPhone maker would also unveil its health and fitness tracking app Healthbook at the big event. One reason the OS X 10.10 would get more spotlight than the iOS 8 is that it will boast of an “end-to-end redesign.” In contrast, the iOS 8 will be an incremental improvement.
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) shares were down 0.39% to $590.35 in early trading session Monday.
