A new report says Apple has no plans to introduce an iWatch, nor a new Apple TV at its Worldwide Developers Conference in June. Apple’s big announcements will reportedly focus on OS X 10.10, iOS 8, and possibly a Healthbook fitness and health app.
Sources familiar with Apple’s plans tell Code/red that Tim Cook will not use WWDC to unveil Apple’s mythical wearable device. Nor will he use it to show off a new Apple TV, or even preview the new software the company is developing for it. Which makes perfect sense, really. There’s little point in Apple unveiling a new OS in advance of a significant hardware update.
Apple’s WWDC 2014 starts on June 2nd. The conference has usually been used in the past to unveil new operating system software. Occasionally Apple has been known to debut new hardware at the event, including new MacBook Airs in 2013 and the Retina Macbook Pro in 2012.
While Apple will not be debuting a new Apple TV at the conference, they are still reportedly hard at work on the set-top box. The new box is rumored to include an App Store, gaming, and iOS 7 controller support.
