Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) is happening today and we’ll first probably hear a number of increased stats from the App Store, iOS adoption rate, and the number of new retail store openings around the world. Many rumours have circled online as to what Apple is planning for iOS 8 — perhaps a number of apps that will compete both in health and in the home.

If you have an Apple device (Mac, iPhone, iPad, Apple TV) and want to following along, Apple will be live streaming the event through a number of avenues. The keynote presentation will kickoff at 1:00pm Eastern time and here’s how you can join in:

“Live streaming video requires Safari 4 or later on OS X v10.6 or later; Safari on iOS 4.2 or later. Streaming via Apple TV requires second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 5.0.2 or later.”

    Here’s hoping apple brings back the wow this year.

      They are masters of refinement. One could make the argument that the ‘wow’ factor hasn’t been there since the original iPhone announcement in 2007 or since iPhone 4′s announcement in 2010.

      They may be a step or two behind other OSes in terms of functionality, and they may not have the wow factor of other companies. However, 9 times out of 10 when they implement something, they nail it better than what’s out there (Maps would be that 1 time they botched something).

      I think if there’s going to be any very exciting news this year it’s going to come out of OSX, not iOS. OSX is due for a big change.

      I couldn’t agree more with that assessment, I just miss the days of counting down to the conference.

      I do feel their refinement process is too slow and feature wise they are falling too far behind for my needs.

      I think Android Wearables has Smart watches nailed, where is I’d like to see the next apple wow is in home automation. Their air play is second to none and would love to see apple tv, airplay and home automation all combined into one sexy setup.

    • alphs22

      Completely agree with you – AirPlay is still untouchable while the rest of the industry Fs around with Miracast/DLNA/whatever. Rumours are that Apple is also going into the home automation space, which is great news since they already have the ability to get devices talking almost flawlessly with AirPlay.

      And who knows, maybe they will surprise us with some sort of wearable this year. Considering many facets of iOS 8 and iPhone 6 have been leaked (Healthbook, sapphire screens, etc.), some announcement of wearable support would be very exciting.

    • Jakob

      I would also agree with you. Apple has become the masters of building success over generations of products because of their execution level is spot on. I find that the updates they’ve released are met more with ‘…finally!’ rather than ‘Oh, that’s really cool!’ but when they finally do, it’s typically done better than what’s on the market.

      I have such a love-hate with that.

    • Jason

      For me, ios7 was the breaking point. I grew tired of looking longingly at features on other handsets thinking ‘I’m sure they’ll add that next year…..OK, next year’.

  • Thomas Milne

    “want to following along”

  • Chris

    Why does Apple have to be so non-friendly with everything but Apple? Can’t load this on my phone or laptop. Anyone have a youtube stream or something?

    • Jakob

      So you buy their whole ecosystem of products. You (or I) may not want to buy all Apple products but the truth of the matter is that, if you do, they’ll all live together perfectly. If the competitors aren’t offering a robust alternative than by simply ‘not playing nice’ with other devices is enough to shove you into their ecosystem for convenience.

    • Chris

      Maybe this is why I (mostly) stick to Google products and services now.
