Apple's online store was replaced with the familiar "Back Soon" notice Monday morning ahead of the company's annual World Wide Developer Conference keynote event. Apple typically doesn't take its Web-based store offline ahead of media events unless new product announcements are coming, hinting that rumors of new Mac Pro and MacBook Air models might be accurate.
Apple will be streaming its World Wide Developer Conference Keynote event Monday morning via Apple TV. The Mac, iPhone and iPad maker quietly added a new channel to Apple TV this morning ahead of the presentation, and also added a link to watch through the Apple Events page on the company's website.
The WWDC 2013 Keynote is tomorrow, Monday, June 10th, starting at 1pm EDT (10am PDT) and TMO's Dave Hamilton is already on-site posting pictures and updates. During the keynote itself coverage will include live, play-by-play updates from within the Moscone. Tune in here for TMO's coverage to find out exactly what's happening so you don't miss a thing!
Bryan Chaffin has been thinking about Apple CEO Tim Cook and the company's design guru, Sir Jonathan Ive. It started when Sir Jony was put in charge of the look and feel of iOS 7. As more rumors about the iOS makeover began to come out, he became convinced: working with the software designers is one of many steps in Tim Cook training him to takeover Apple some day.
With Apple's annual World Wide Developer Conference only days away Jeff and Bryan take a look at what we know about this year's event as well as what seems possible based on rumors. There's plenty to talk about including the redesign of iOS 7, what's happening with OS X, companies Apple may have purchased, whether or not NFC is on its way to the iPhone, and more.
Apple is hard at work taking care of last minute preparations for next week's World Wide Developer Conference, and that includes hanging the posters and banners at San Francisco's Moscone West Convention Center. Just like previous years, Apple is decorating the inside and outside of the building, and while the artwork that's going up in Moscone West may be colorful, it isn't offering any new hints as to what may be announced when the event kicks off on June 10.
If you’re attending WWDC for the first time this year, here’s a boatload of useful tips for newbies that will save time and grief.
Apple rolled out its official iPhone and iPad app for World Wide Developer Conference attendees on Monday, and this year the scheduling and organization app includes iOS 6 Passbook support. WWDC is Apple's annual conference for iOS and OS X app developers.
Apple is reportedly pushing to wrap up deals with music labels for a streaming music service launch announcement at its annual World Wide Developer Conference next week in San Francisco. Rumors that Apple signed a deal with Universal Music surfaced last month, and now reports are claiming Sony Music is on board, too.

Even though Apple hasn't confirmed iRadio is happening, so much information has leaked that is sounds like it's only a matter of when -- not if -- an announcement happens. Unveiling the service at WWDC may not seem like the best fit, but Apple has used its event keynote in the past to introduce new products, and if there aren't other big announcements planned, iRadio would be a nice addition to keep the media and analysts happy.
As we've done in the past, The Mac Observer will be in San Francisco attending WWDC, and we'll be conducting interviews with developers starting Sunday, June 9 thru Wednesday, June 12. If you'll be in town then we'd love to hear from you and possibly set something up. Just provide your details below and we'll coordinate from there.
