This is one of the big days on the calendar for Apple (AAPL) watchers: WWDC 2014. The 25th version of the conference. There have been plenty of rumors leading up to the June 2 keynote, among them the possibility that AAPL could be making a play for the health market, taking on Google (GOOG) in home automation or responding to Samsung’s (SSNLF) Galaxy S5 with an early peek at a bigger iPhone 6.
Among the givens were a look at Apple’s next operating system versions, OS X 10.10 and iOS 8, but investors and the media were looking for signs that innovation is alive and well at Apple.
What exactly did the company reveal at WWDC 2014?
Well, there was no iWatch or new Apple TV and the iPhone 6 remained elusive, but CEO Tim Cook and company did have plenty to present today in San Francisco. The focus was not on hardware (there was none), but the way that Apple gear “just works” — even for developers.
Here are the six biggest announcements to come out of this year’s Apple World Wide Developers Conference keynote.
