There is not long to go until Apple take to the stage for its WWDC 2014 keynote, and as ever, we are waiting in anticipation as to what Tim Cook and the team will talk about. We do know that OS X 10.10 will be a topic of conversation, although there should also be a small mention about iOS 8, although we already know/assume that its mobile OS will take a back seat with a larger focus later in the year.
Apple has a knack of keeping us in the dark, but that does not mean we do not know what to expect when it comes to some of the likely Mac OS X 10.10 features that should be highlighted during WWDC on June 2, 2014.
Nothing has been confirmed as yet because Apple has not let anything slip about what they have in store for the next OS X update, but we can build up a good idea based on what we have heard over the months, as well as watching the video on Mac OS X 10.10 rumors below.
Mac OS X 10.10 name — This is a very interesting one because Apple blindsided us last year with Mavericks because it was against tradition, which means trying to work out what the next name will be has been made far tougher.
We know that it goes by the name of Syrah behind the scenes, but this is unlikely to be its public release name. However, there have been a few suggestions thrown into the mix, these are Mac OS X 10.10 Cupertino, Hollywood, Death Valley, Buttonwillow, Hillcrest, Long Beach, Tahoe, and Sequoia. Which of the eight would you rather go for and why?
Possible Mac OS X 10.10 design — This is one of the biggest talking points because we were told last year that the next OS X update would feature a design similar to iOS 7, although we did hear earlier in the year that this might not be the case, but Apple still insists that it will integrate more with iOS 7, but more so with iOS 8 once released later in the year.
Even though Mavericks brought with it some lovely knew, and much-needed features, and while we cannot say for certainty what features will adorn OS X 10.10, there is a strong possibility that Siri will finally be brought to the desktop and laptop range. That is not all because AirDrop is expected to be updated to allow for file sharing between iOS and OS X, which would make sense with reports of improved iOS integration.
We have a good feeling about OS X 10.10 because it has all the makings of being the most exciting version of the software yet, and while we still do not know much about what Apple has in store, we would remind you once more to view the video below for more insight.
A final note, the Mac OS X 10.10 price has crept up again and again in conversation, and we believe that Apple will do the same last year and make the update free. We don’t have long to find out, so please let us know what you feel Apple will bring to WWDC 2014 next month.
