iOS 7 and OS X 10.9 will be unveiled at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference on 10th June.
An announcement for this year’s WWDC went online yesterday afternoon, complete with a new logo and typeface, with a press release from Apple teasing the new operating systems. In the press release, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, Phil Schiller, said:
We can’t wait to get new versions of iOS and OS X into their [developers] hands at WWDC.
Historically, Apple has often used its opening keynote at WWDC to reveal new versions of iOS and OS X and, occasionally, new hardware. Last year, Apple announced OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion well ahead of WWDC back in February 2012, but this year the company is staying quiet. If there are no major announcements before WWDC in June, it will have been 230 days since they announced new products, the longest time since the announcement of the original iPad.
It also seems unlikely we’ll be seeing anything more than software at this year’s conference, with Tim Cook hinting at new product announcements in fall and 2014 during an earnings call earlier this week.
As ever, we’ll be providing full coverage of all of Apple’s announcement at WWDC in June.
