Apple will be kicking off its 26th annual Worldwide Developers Conference on June 8th. Apple said in a press release that the event would be running from, June 8 through June 12 at San Francisco’s Moscone West. While the Apple world has been overly excited about the launch of the Apple Watch, which some users may not be receiving until this event actually takes place – WWDC 2015 might end up being more exciting than anything that the company has put together yet this year.
Most notably, the introduction of Apple’s music service that has been dubbed “a Spotify killer,” will likely be getting its debut at the event. While it’s unclear if the product will be outright ready at that juncture, it will certainly remain a staple of the event. The update to the Music app on the iPhone is undoubtedly a major component of what the company is looking to do moving forward, but the streaming aspect will be the part that is really shown off.
Interestingly, the entire app will be getting a visual overhaul, too that has apparently been said to include increased adaptation of playlist and artist organization features. The app itself would see significant updating, given the fact that currently it only houses in place music. Interestingly, the service in coordination with Beats will be the first thing Apple has done with it since the acquisition.
In the press release Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing Philip Schiller pointed out that, “We’ve got incredible new technologies for iOS and OS X to share with developers at WWDC and around the world, and can’t wait to see the next generation of apps they create.”
For Apple, it’s all about enhancing the experience for users and this time around will be a great opportunity for Apple to continue exerting its dominance in the development space. Whether users are getting new apps developed, or they’re just experiencing new things and products – this WWDC should be one of the most intriguing events that Apple has put on in years. Especially if products like their new music streaming service can live up to the hype.
