Apple’s five-day Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) 2013 is set to begin at the Moscone West center in San Francisco on Monday. While Apple provides the live stream here, you can also track the events closely from the comfort of your chair, thanks to a number of live blogging sites.
The latest round of rumors about WWDC 2013 has made millions of Apple enthusiasts around the world go crazy with expectations of new products and services including the iOS 7, OS X 10.9, updated Macs and perhaps a new music streaming service, dubbed “iRadio.”
Following CEO Tim Cook’s recent statement that from the Cupertino, Calif.-based tech giant will roll out “the future of iOS and OS X” at this year’s WWDC, many people assumed that a new iOS device could be on its way a lot sooner than expected. However, a number of reports followed thereafter, strongly suggesting that there won’t be any new iPhone or iPad at the developer’s meet.
While the next generation iteration of the iPhone, commonly referred to as the “iPhone 5S,” is expected in September or October, the fifth version of the iPad -- the “iPad 5” -- is rumored to be released in the third quarter of this year.
Anyhow, we’ll know in just a few hours what Cook and his company have in store for us at the WWDC 2013, which will kick off at 10 a.m. PDT [1:00 p.m. EDT] on Monday.
