Follow all the happenings from WWDC 2014 live with iMore!

WWDC 2014

Today's a pretty big day in the tech sphere, and whatever your preference when it comes to mobile, it's always worth paying attention to what Apple is doing at its annual WWDC event which just so happens to start today. Most of the week is dedicated to developer sessions but the show is opened by a keynote address starring CEO Tim Cook and other assorted Apple executives. And our pals at iMore are on the ground in San Francisco covering the whole thing live.

iOS 8 and OS X 10.10 are certainly on the cards along with whatever new features they each bring to the table. This is the big Apple event of the year so if you want to know what's going down, then you'll want to be following iMore.

Fortunately, they've got a spiffy new event page all set up to pull in every single little thing you'll need to know. Apple will be streaming the event live online – as usual to Mac owners using Safari – as well as iOS devices and the Apple TV. If you don't fall into any of those categories – and even if you do – the iMore liveblog is the place to be. Whichever method you're choosing, it all kicks off at 10 a.m. Pacific, 1 p.m. Eastern and 6 p.m. in the UK.

Head on over there to keep up with things as the day goes past!

I thought this was Windows Phone Central

hotraia says:

This news was supposed to be on stupidity central

kamaelxiii says:

That's why this was posted under General News.

txDrum says:

Sister site, no need to be like that

bitz0071 says:

iOS 7 was released last year on September and they releasing iOS 8

pampurio97 says:

Announcement and release are not the same thing

IceDree says:

Probably the Beta of iOS8 ... Ever since they moved the iPhone event to September, a Beta of the upcoming iOS version gets announced in June during WWDC & becomes available like a week after

hotraia says:

IOS doesn't have beta

IceDree says:

Oh Yes they do ... They release a Beta around June every year ... With the GoldMaster version released the same day the new iPhone goes on sale

SoloXCRacer says:

Yes they do, but you need an Apple Developer account ($99/year) to download it.  I'll have to download it just to see what breaks in my current app I'm supporting.

DJCBS says:

iOS 8 is expected in September too. They do yearly updates. One has to consider, though, that iOS updates are nowhere near the scale of WP updates since iOS is a more mature OS.

Nevertheless, Microsoft has also committed to a yearly bigger update with small updates (GDRs) in between,

theefman says:

Can't even get refuge from apple hype on a windows phone site....

Hahaha guess? Now that Microsoft is cross-selling apps and services to Android and Apple, WPCentral is doing the same.

Schikitar says:

Yeah, I wonder if the iMore crowd will get spammed with WP8.1 news upon its release??

txDrum says:

Sister site, there's a reason they're explicitly mentioning imore

Editguy1900 says:

And we don't care. If we wanted to read about 
Apple, there are a billion tech blogs dedicated to every Tim Cook burp...

IceDree says:

Awesome ! Looking forward to it

IceDree says:

Because I like Tech & I got nothing to do today. :)

ahmedjan87 says:

I guess I misunderstood you

IceDree says:

It's cool don't worry about it :D

jomarr says:

+ iPhone 5c

asoyemi says:

IceDree says: Because I like Tech & I got nothing to do today. :)

your answer is simply awesome

IceDree says:

Thank you :P

sueha says:

So you can't see it with a PC but with a Mac and safari??

IceDree says:

I don't know, but they usually post the event on their website a few hours later.

Jonas_H says:

You can also use Safari+Quicktime on Windows or your iOS device! :)

IceDree says:

+1 , that's what I usually do when I watch it later

pampurio97 says:

Not on Windows.

hyperman1 says:

Not get interested.

Type syntax not ordered.

Deaconclgi says:

I hope Apple releases a new Windows Phone, Windows Computer or at least Safari for Windows Phone...oh wait...

asoyemi says:

like my 8 year old would say:  Deaconclgi "yor min" - That was cute and I laughed my ribs out.

psychotron says:

And we would care about this because why...... ??????

Gatlyn says:

It never hurts to see what the competition is doing.

psychotron says:

Yeah, but you can catch it all in the headlines of any news feed, even CNN or BBC. Don't need it in WP Central where 90% of the readers couldn't care less. I don't come here for Apple news and especially not to follow one of their developer events.

I'll be honest: not really interested in reader opinion here. It's a simple post that you can ignore or read. I do love the little tantrums some of you throw though because we simply announce our sister site is covering this, and because of that, we'll continue to do these articles. :)

Micah Dawson says:

Lol I usually love your usual sarcasm but that's probably not the best view to have for your readers Dan :)

Jack Larson1 says:

Haha, me too. (edit) I love these articles for the same reasons^
"This is WP central, not:
att/carrier news
windows 8 central
Samsung ["sucks"] news
general tech central
tv show central
sister site central
and other stuff besides Lumia 8 central!
(seems faster, and when is att gonna update my 920?!?!)

asoyemi says:

Dan, its cool that you got your guys back, but saying WP fans are throwing tantrum? I think you are getting guys back too much. WP fans kick each other around sometimes with lots of love and civility I think, and we kick competing devices around harder. (What's WP fan to do?)

I perused sister site (as you call it), I did not see windows info. During MSFT developers' conference when wp8.1 was announced, I did not see a line about it on imore or andy central. So, I don't think we throw Tantrum much or what do you think?

Editguy1900 says:

So, you're not interested in readers opinions? Interesting that a site dedicated to readers is uninterested in their opinions. Very short sighted and a very unprofessional response. I actually signed up for WP Central to get away from the incessant Apple hype that you find on nearly all tech blogs. I'm very disappointed. Time to go looking again.

esco757 says:

Wow, you mad bro?

RyanAMG says:

keep your friends close and your enemies closer ;)

CobaltDragon says:

This site is becoming less and less relevant to the WP world. It was nice while it lasted.

fallback says:

Windows phone central... imore, wait what?

Aashish13 says:

This is off topic article

Nimdock says:

Oh yeah, can't wait to find out more about Crapple! :|

Nimdock says:

For the record I am not complaining about the news post.


I just dislike Apple! :P

kivancio says:

Yeahh im gonna watch it woo hooo

Constantin15 says:

My god such whine babies over here. Tech is tech. News is news. Wp central has a frickin brother and it's called imore. Makes sense they would support it. We get news about everything which is connected to Microsoft but God forbid we should keep up with everything else that happens in the world. Let''s not become total fanboys and reject everything else. Don't hate, participate :D

Common sense prevails!!!  

L Beezy says:

Well said yo

sheldonch says:

Haha sure, but I wonder how imore fans would react if they posted windows phone news there.. Oh wait probably the same way. Cue elitist remarks.

Spot on!

Posted via WPCentral App.

Editguy1900 says:

And yet, if I want to read all of the "news" about Apple, I already have an abundance of choices (engadget, the verge, etc.) I signed up here to get away from that. You don't find Windows Phone news on the "sister" site. And, if you know the meaning of participate, you would know that's exactly what we're doing. 

Really interesring how far Apple will go to copy and paste the modern ui..



IceDree says:

That would be great

Is this windows phone central or IOS central

pr0phecy says:

Not an Apple fan like, at all. But I'd still like to see what revolutionary WP8.1 functionality will be in the new iOS :)

WPCentral advocates do realize that this is a child site for Mobile Nations right? I love WP as much as the rest of you, but I love cell tech on a general level more, my fanboyism be damned.

Chregu says:

There's a revolutionary WP8.1 functionality? I must have missed that.

2tomtom says:

LOL, but true!

JoRdaNeK says:

They mention Nokia a lot on the android side of things, why not have a little peek at the apple side of life

metallikunt says:

I love how nobody here was complaining about the site mentioning iMore when they were giving away Beats headphones. Guess you need to be doing a competition in order to visit a different website related to different tech.

I would also love an official iMore app. Seeing what the competition is up to never hurts.

jomarr says:

C'mon now it's about Tech and it's nice to see what's up with the competition.


It's a slow news day anyways..

cesar ruiz1 says:

Last time I checked out imore was back when iPhone 4 was released just got boring. I might check it out now. There's a 40/60 chance.

Antluv82 says:

I already saw one of there features.... That u can pitch tha app open Tu c a message or suming

sheldonch says:

Sure its tech news. But its still posted in the wrong place. This site caters almost exclusively to fan boys.. Same as any website that dedicates their news to a particular platform. I personally don't care. Just seems like an odd place to post imore news. How often does imore post windows phone central news? I imagine the same reactions occur.

txDrum says:

I'd love to see a new retina MBA! Hate them if you'd like (I continue to not own an apple device) but they have often driven the industry forward. Imagine what Microsoft would have to do with the SP4 if the MBA comes out with an 18 hour battery life.

mccasive says:

MBA has not digitizer, no pen support and it's almost twice as heavy as the SURFACE PRO 3 so comparing the battery life of these 2 devices is kinda moot to me.

Micah Dawson says:

The purpose of this article is what exactly? We are apart of mobile nations so most users here knows they can go to imore to get apple news.

I dont get the ideology of apple info on a windows phone site. But ehh.

Guys, GUYS! The reason why they posted this article was because once it is announced, we can use our shields against the iSheep. :P

kinpin2131 says:

Guys .. stop freaking out. Microsoft news are posted regularly on other websites. Heck Cult-of-mac and Macrumors covered Surface 3 when it was announced. 

Editguy1900 says:

But there are a pletora of sites dedicated to everything Apple, why spoil one of the few that's not? I we're interested in Apple, all we have to do is click on the tab at the top of the page.

jbjtkbw00#AC says:

I can't stand Apple, but I watch this event every year. Why? Because if you're truly into tech you need to stay relevant as to all going on. You can hate Chrysler all you want, but when they announced the return to the Hemi , it was a big deal in the automotive industry. It just makes sense so that we can stay relevant.

aitt says:

WWDC - Here, everything is invented...

Hoekie says:

SPAM on WPCentral? Like google+ spam when you just use a google account for YouTube. Is there an opt out?

Rem97 says:

I'm excited to see what iOS 8 brings.

stinkfish says:

Man they releasing some nice features. This is where the reality check hits hard, I dig WP but we have just been teased with whats coming in WP8.1 which is epic but then Apple jump another year or 2 ahead, iOS is just too mature and now its picking and choosing all the cool stuff other platforms have, and doing the typical "but we do it better". I decided to stop watching after the family feature was mentioned. WP team. The next release doesn't just need to catch up, but it needs blow every feature that apple have out of the water and then some. Until that day comes it will just forever be a catchup model.

Eroneko says:

Acaso en paginas web de noticias de Apple publicaron el Build 2014?

nivekv says:

I know it is a sister site but please stop spamming us with their news. The few people that care will already be following iMore and this is duplicate content for them, so just don't.

David P2 says:

Does the colour scheme of iOS still look like it was designed by Mickey Mouse on an acid trip? lol

asoyemi says:

It seems them apple folks with their ios are fixing to copy the family room features for them iThingys. I tell you, if I ever see them folks use their funky phrase that they revolutionalize Family room and God forbid Live Tiles, beleive you me I am crying murder, stealing, Highway Robbery etc

I heard they are releasing OneDrive...errr...iCloud Drive.

Kadcidxa says:

Hey Apple, how about making some apps for Windows Phone?

Iain_S says:

All i can say, is love the pie charts. how do people still fall for this marketing bullshit from Apple???

btw windows 8 little pie on apples charts still has more users than all versions of osx.

DaKidIndian says:

Rather off topic, but I sense once the new iOS is announced, iSheep will accuse Microsoft of ripping off "8".
