Healthbook? New MacBook Airs? Here are a few things to look out for on Monday.
Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference kicks off on Monday, and if history is any indication there will be several executives in untucked shirts (and also software and possibly hardware updates). A year ago, CEO Tim Cook was promising investors “exciting new product categories” in 2014. And earlier this week iTunes chief Eddy Cue said the company has got “the best product pipeline that I’ve seen in my 25 years at Apple.” With no major unveilings thus far, and since Apple’s fiscal year ends in September, productivity in the United States is expected to drop considerably during the keynote presentation in anticipation of a new product unveiling. Then again, it’s just as likely that we’ll get nothing but software updates and have to wait until the fall for any consumer hardware news. There’s only one way to find out.
We’ll be covering the event live as it happens (it starts at 10 a.m. Pacific/1 p.m. Eastern), but until then, here’s a roundup of some of the more popular rumors bubbling.
