The WWDC keynote will take place on Monday, June 2. The last Apple presentation was last year in October (for Air and iPad Retina mini ), thus, next week event is obviously highly anticipated, not so much for any new product, specially the way Apple is going with its mobile and desktop platforms . 9to5 Mac reports on all the rumors about OS X Yosemite, as it should be called.
Strangely , while OS X 10.10 is supposed to occupy the majority of the keynote, we know very little about it, known internally under the code name ” Syrah ” Yosemite OS X will no doubt be a serious stroke on its interface , continuing Mavericks momentum.
OS X 10.10 possibly many elements fro iOS 7 , starting with a “flat” interface, icons simplified , white space to breathe , buttons slide straight from iOS 7 … But multi-window multitasking and Mission Control fortunately we retain the usual features of OS X as a Finder . The convergence of course, but not to merge the two operating systems.
The new design will be a major feature of OS X Yosemite, but Apple also worked on some new developments. such as Control Centre making its appearance , voice assistant Siri and AirDrop compatibility with iOS . The Maps application would benefit the progress of its iOS counterpart , the Game Center application could also disappear. As for improving Mail, fingers crossed … iLife , iWork could also reflect the new OS design X.
Developers will no doubt be pleased to know that the version 6 Xcode is in the pipeline . This update of the development tool will provide a much more powerful iOS simulator ( including the level of support for resolutions of future iPhone … ) . The testing process for apps and prototyping are also highly reviewed.
The integration of iCloud features, which was proven to be very problematic for developers, it was one of the points that Apple engineers brainstormed . This is the case for storage possibilities in the cloud.
