Liveblog: Apple's iOS 9 announcement (WWDC '15)

Liveblog: Apple's iOS 9 announcement (WWDC '15)
WWDC - Apple's annual developer conference - is about to kick off! CEO Tim Cook and company are going to share what the latest achievements of the Apple ecosystem are, and this will most probably include info on the performance of its latest entrant, the Apple Watch. Hopefully, right after that, we're going to learn about what we're truly interested in - iOS 9!

Most everything about the latest chapter in the eventful iOS story has been kept under wraps thus far, with only a few minor rumors managing to slip their way out of Cupertino. And even they are to be taken with a grain of salt for the time being. Want a refresher? Be sure to check out our iOS 9 rumor round-up while waiting for the keynote to begin. In short, what we expect to see Apple touch on today includes improvements to Apple Maps, better system performance, especially for older gear, as well as the company's new music subscription service.

Of course, there should be more to see from the event. Way more. Exactly what? We have no idea, but a great way to stay in the loop would be to follow our liveblog, which can be found below! Alternatively, if you'd prefer to watch the video stream from the event (which typically requires you to have an Apple device of some sort), head this way for instructions.

EVENT START TIME: 10 AM PT | 11 AM MT | 12 PM CT | 1 PM ET | 6 PM BST | 7 PM CET

They keep adding numbers and no big change, iOS is so boring sometimes especially the UI.

There are two types of fanboys. Ones who talk sense and doesn't get all defensive and the ignorant arsehole who will fight for Sauron till the end Bonus Type: THEPATRIOT type Just your regular troll who pretends to love Apple.

yosemite slowed down my macbook air. Maverick was faster and in my opinion better looking on my laptop, downgraded to it. This one will be same, slower or faster?

it does so much more than android M even apples new intelliegent app blows google now away type in 2tbs boom a conversion when you get an email for an invitation to karakoe your phone already puts it in the calendar you can also ask siri to remind you about whatever on your screen for example your on targets app you ant those pillows. siri remind me to buy these pillows when i get home etc etc also location and time is apart of iOS for example your iPhone detects wetter your at home or work and if you plug in headphones it plays the song that will get you pumped for the gym

Sooo.... Is this guy a major troll, or just have no idea what Google Now has been doing for the past two/three years?

I don't think anyone at Apple realises how stupid they look every time they pull out their User Adoption chart.

no its proof Android is just a fragmination of an OS putting its Users at risk of security threats and lets not forget the constant lag running out of ram and battery issues

yea as we all know highest battery lives are from iphones, and highest amount of ram is found in iphones and they never run out of memory while browsing. yes each of these platforms has its own flaws but fragmentaion is something different. he has a point dont try to answer to it with other false facts.

Apple News - another pointless piece of bloatware that will never be used

Sooooo… Nothing really revolutionary was announced. At all. Nothing magical or awe inspiring. Apple allowing something to go open source was the biggest news to me.
