Weekly Roundup: "No Sleep til Dub-Dub"

by Aaron Brethorst | April 06, 2014

WWDC's dates were officially announced this week, and (thankfully!) the seemingly arbitrary system of the past for allocating tickets based upon whether you happened to wake up at the right time has been replaced with a far more fair lottery system. Last year I made a bingo card for the week's announcements, and my predictions were generally pretty good, although I am really bummed out that iOS 7 didn't include any nods towards cross-process communication.

I think we'll be getting our first look at iOS 8, OS X 10.10, but it doesn't take a crystal ball to make those predictions. I think what's more interesting will be what don't see. $600 million in sapphire production? No mention. iPhone 6? Nuh-uh. iWatch? Hah, not a chance. Apple TV with an open SDK? ... My fingers are crossed on this one, but Apple's been taking its sweet time and I have no idea when we might actually see this. 2014 makes sense for a number of reasons, but we'll just have to wait and see.

What do you think is in the pipeline for this year's WWDC?

Best,
Aaron
