With only one day until Apple's WWDC, we have a list of things to expect. There have been rumors for months about iOS, OS X, and the watchOS, but here is our official list of everything to expect.
An update to Apple's mobile operating system is a given. It is guaranteed. But what will be new? We believe that Apple will be doing a lot of under-the-hood work and fix a lot of bugs. But Apple won't just release iOS 9 with just some bug fixes. Apple is will most likely change the font of iOS to its San Francisco font, the same font used on the Apple Watch. Apple may also release an app called Home. This app will work with your HomeKit devices. According to reports from people who have claimed to see iOS 9, it looks basically the same, with a few UI tweaks.
OS X 10.11
This is another given. A new update to Apple's desktop OS is guaranteed as well. Unfortunately, there are not too many rumors surrounding this new version. Apple may change the system font to San Francisco to match the rumored new iOS font. Other sources say Apple is working on bringing Control Center to the Mac.
iOS 8.4/ Apple Music
iOS 8.4 has been in beta for a few weeks now. It features a re-designed Music app. Apple has been working on a music streaming service to compete with Spotify. Their solution is Apple Music. Confirmed by Sony CEO, Apple Music will be announced at WWDC and is rumored to have a three month free trial, and $9.99/ month premium subscription. It is rumored to be included in iOS 8.4.
The Apple Watch has only been out for a little over a month and Apple is rumored to be working on a new version of watchOS. This update may be somewhat small, but will include "Find My Watch" and many other improvements.
Apple Pay Rewards
Apple Pay is growing fast, but Apple wants it to grow faster. Apple may introduce some sort of Apple Pay Rewards program and give you points whenever you use Apple Pay.
WWDC will be live on Monday, June 8th at 10:00am Pacific time. You will be able to watch it on your Apple TV or on Apple.com/live. You can also visit our Twitter page during the event. We will be live tweeting. To get links to our Twitter and the live stream, visit the Home page.
