Apple tipped to announce new hardware at WWDC; will it be the Apple iWatch at long last?
WWDC 2014 is set to kick off on June 2nd, which is a week from next Monday. With time creeping up toward the event, Apple has announced WWDC 2.0 for the iPhone and iPad. The updated app revamps the UI to match iOS 7, and comes with a change in the color of the icon from deep purple to a bright orange. The app also includes a schedule of each day's events, which will come in handy if you're going to be attending. And if you're not attending, videos from different sessions will be streamed through the app.

During WWDC, we should see Apple introduce iOS 8 with the new Healthbook fitness tracking app. And we also are getting a surprise. According to a report published on Wednesday, Apple is rumored to be introducing new hardware during the conference. That could mean anything, although earlier this year there were rumors that Apple would introduce the long-awaited iWatch during WWDC. That would make a lot of sense. If Healthbook is going to be revealed during the conference as the app where all of your medical metrics are stored and analyzed, you would expect to see Apple show off the hardware involved in capturing those readings. And that is where the Apple iWatch comes into play.

As far as the Apple iPhone is concerned, back in January, one analyst called for Apple to introduce a 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6 and a 5.7 Apple iPhone phablet at WWDC. According to this rumor, the Apple iPhone 6 would be released shortly after the developer conference, with the larger iPhone phablet getting released later in the year. With other rumors calling for the new Apple iPhone model (s) to be introduced later this year, we will just have to wait to see what the mystery hardware announcement will be, if indeed there is one. Luckily, we don't have much long to wait.

Show them how it's done. Whatever it is, it will sell in the millions and will make the fandroids cry.

While I gave up my iFaith long ago, I respect the beliefs of those iFans who have stuck with Apple, even after iPope StevenPaul ascended to iHeaven.

Keeping the iFaith while iCamping for many long hot summer months can be tough. I'm sure if you hold strong to your iFaith, you will be well rewarded with iProduct by Saint Ive during the iRapture.

"Your writing like him"

I am just a machine learning how to write from all of you. This time it is PAPINYC. I wonder what his life is like. The people in NYC who are called "daddy" are so different from daddies from other cities.

I remember when it was in the high 700's, and analysts were saying it would break 1000, some even 1300. With the amount of things they've done to bring value back to their stock, it better be going back up. How much can you buy back and not have it move?

Yeah! that's right, they'll be giving their attendees a free iPad, free iPhone and a free iWatch just like google did with Google IO: Free Nexus 7, Nexus Q and Galaxy Nexus. Oh wait...

Never compare the budget nexus line to the top of the line Apple products, Nexus Q??? Galaxy Nexus.. those products were given away for a reason, Nexus 7 is the exception here

I'd take a Nexus 4 or 5 over any iPhone, and a Nexus 7 over an iPad mini any day.

I was just going to say, they need to launch the 4.7" iPhone 6 because they're getting WAY too far behind in this hardware race. Its almost like the tortoise and the hare, except the tortoise is glued to the ground.......

the "glued" tortoise is beating the speedy hare in single sales, imagine when the tortoise will shake off the glue..

They're not even beating the hare's leading manufacturer.

"Whatever it is, it will sell in the millions..."

So you're saying that no matter what Apple releases, crap or not, Apple fans will buy it?

That's exactly what he's saying. They buy tiny shiny crap.

There is people already decided on buying the Note 4 without anything other than rumor being trown around?.. how is this any different?

21. tedkord (Posts: 14206; Member since: 17 Jun 2009)


No, it's no different. Anyone who knows they're buying any device before it's released is a sheep. I don't even buy on release, I wait to see the reviews and try it myself, then after a month or so, I decide. I'm interested in the Note 4, but u can't say I'll buy it. I was interested in the M8 until it came out.

Who cried? I just asked you to clarify your statement. Your lack of answer is all the answer we need.

You will never get a reasonable answer from him. He then changes the subject and tries to jumble users by diverging the subject

Androiphone20 and Sauce is debatable

You seem to be under the impression that Apple products are crap. It'll sell in millions because it's something that's going to be in demand. Apple's not forcing anyone to buy their products.

edit: I apologize for the late response. Was @ the gym. More QQ pls!
