Apple WWDC: What to expect

We're eagerly awaiting the release of more details on Apple's 2014 smartphone device, and while it may be a few months until we hear anything from the Cupertino giant on this front, its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) is almost upon us, and it will be the first time we hear from the company this year.

While the chances of us hearing anything about the Apple iPhone 6 are basically absolutely zero, there will still be plenty to come from the WWDC, not least the operating system that we will see on the exciting new device when it launches in – most likely – September.

Experts are expecting to see the unveiling of the company's iOS 8 at the event, which runs from June 2nd to June 6th, and this will be a big one for Apple fans, after the mixed reactions that met iOS 7.

The good news is that iOS 8 is unlikely to see the sort of large scale visual overhaul that came with its predecessor, with most of the focus this time around likely to be on functionality instead. 

The biggest changes are expected to be the way that Apple tries to position itself, with a large focus likely to be put on health and fitness with the release of Healthbook, a native app that allows people to plan and track their routines. 

In addition to this, Siri fans will be glad to hear that the popular voice recognition pal is also going to be getting a little bit of an upgrade, with a new algorithm expected to allow it to work with third party apps without Apple intervention.

We also expect an update to the iRadio app, as well as a number of changes not related to the phone at all.

OSX 10.10 is likely to debut for Mac users, while the unveiling of more details about the company's massive acquisition of Dr Dre's Beats firm should also be expected.
