The latest news suggests Apple will announce a home automation platform, starring the iPhone as a remote control for all your connected devices.

While Apple is remaining close-lipped about the speculation, it wouldn’t be a shock for the company to make a surprise announcement. After all, past WWDC editions have featured hardware reveals like the iPhone 4 and the MacBook Pro with Retina Display. At the same time AAPL is under pressure from its Board, investors and customers to ramp up innovation with new product lines.

Then there’s the Microsoft (MSFT) Surface Pro 3 announcement from last week, an event where Microsoft both surprised the media with a new hardware reveal, and tossed the gauntlet at Apple.

The time seems right for WWDC 2014 to be about more than the next OSX and iOS versions or confirmation of a Beats Audio acquisition. Here are five of the front-runners when it comes to Apple rumors for new product announcements at next week’s keynote, including the game-changing iHome.
