Apple’s keynote speech at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference is set for 10 a.m. PT June 2 at San Francisco’s Moscone Center — and it could kick off with a big reveal.
The generally reliable Mark Gurman at 9to5Mac reports that new hardware will be part of this year’s WWDC. And the opening keynote would be a likely scenario for an unveiling.
Cycling through recent rumors to make an educated guess, a smartwatch seems about right. Reports of Apple’s sapphire glass efforts and the mounting market pressure to deliver a really cool wearable lead me to believe they’ve cracked the code on a stellar smartwatch — or at least want to compete with Android Wear.
Of course, it could also be the long-rumored Apple HDTV — something that ties in to rumors of Beats headphones acquisition — an early release for the iPhone 6, or maybe even just a Retina display for MacBook Air.
