Schiller added that WWDC sees more diverse audiences every year and developers from almost every arena and every corner of the world. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is looking forward to offer latest features in iOS 8 and OS X to create the next generation of great apps.

Developers can apply for WWDC tickets until 10 a.m. Pacific time on April 7. After the application process, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will choose those who will attend the event through a lottery. The price of every conference ticket is $1,599. Last year, it took just two minutes to sell all tickets for the conference.

What to expect at WWDC

Apple is expected to showcase iOS 8, which will probably power the expected iPhone 6, which is expected launch by the end of this year. The latest version of iOS will likely have specific features relating to fitness, as Apple is gearing up to launch the Healthbook app to compete with Samsung’s Galaxy S5. Additionally, Apple maps are expected to get a new look and enhanced software, including public transport directions and improved location data.

It is expected that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will also introduce its next version of the Mac operating system: OS X 10.10, which could be inspired by the iOS 7 redesign. There have been rumors for a while now that the iPhone maker is preparing to come up with a Retina MacBook Air, as the present line of MacBook Air does not have the feature.

With iOS 8 expected to make an appearance at WWDC 2014, there have been a lot of speculations that Apple may launch an iWatch also, as iOS is expected to come with a Healthbook app. However, if Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) sticks to tradition, only the beta version of iOS8 will come at WWDC 2014, and the iWatch will be postponed to sometime later this year.

  1. So great that “Microsoft office” is merging itself with the I-pad, absolutely perfect for enterprise users. Now we will be able to go home at 5:00 without finishing what we are doing on the office desktop working with Windows office. We should be able to stop in real time mid stream and sync seamlessly to continue on our I-pad, on the way home while riding the subway. That is so great also able to do a little on my lunch break at Tim Horton’s. Thanks Microsoft and Apple for making my life a thousand times easier, great enterprise feature you got going. (:
