No ‘iWatch’ or ‘Apple iTV’ at WWDC 2014, sources say

“If you’ve been anticipating the debut of some new category-defining hardware at Apple’s upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference, a word of advice: Dial back your expectations or be disappointed,” John Paczkowski reports for Re/code’s Code/red.

“Sources familiar with Apple’s plans tell Code/red that Tim Cook will not use WWDC to unveil Apple’s mythical wearable device,” Paczkowski reports. “Nor will he use it to show off a new Apple TV, or even preview the new software the company is developing for it.”

Paczkowski reports, “As 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman reported Thursday, the big announcements at this year’s WWDC are going to be OS X 10.10 and iOS 8 and, perhaps, the rumored Healthbook app, Apple’s coming foray into health and fitness tracking.”

  1. I wish Apple would bring back a show to the east coast. I really miss the shows that were done in Boston. They were some of the best. It also gave the large population of the greater New England and Greater New York areas the ability to attend without having the expense of traveling across the whole country.

    The fact that Apple probably sells more kit in the northeastern part of our country than anywhere else in the world, should make them grateful enough for our attention, instead of treating us like chopped liver.

    1. I notice that Apple, as well as others on the west coast, send out their products with Pacific time as the default time zone, even though only 14% of the US population lives there. It doesn’t seem to make marketing sense, because it inconveniences the largest possible number of customers. The Eastern time zone alone contains almost half the population of the US. Eastern and Central together contain 80% of the population.

      If WWDC were held in Boston, or somewhere else in the Eastern time zone, the largest possible number of potential US customers would see it at a convenient time.

  2. I don’t know what sort of message they are trying to send me, but ever since I became a full-time Mac user, WWDC, gay pride, the local county fair, and my birthday have all come in the same week.

    Now WWDC is leaving the pack and starting out early. Hm.

  3. I am glad about the new MDN. This is my first day after having grown tired with the old format.
    Now about Apple. I will be disappointed if there will be no mentions of any iTV, iPad pro, or iWatch products.
    I have been waiting with my money to spend on these Apple products and I am getting tired of holding the money.

    Let’s get going and show Apple innovations.
