iOS 8 confirmed for WWDC 2014 unveiling as banners appear

Apple will officially unveil its new iPhone and iPad operating system iOS 8 next week, signage at the venue for WWDC 2014 has confirmed.

With Apple’s annual developer conference set to kick off in San Francisco next Monday, June 2, images from the hosting Moscone Center have shown that banners have already been erected to depict the new iOS 8 OS.

An annual feature of Apple’s WWDC keynote, the new iOS iteration is widely expected to host a range of new features, with a heavy fitness and wellbeing focus having been repeatedly tipped.

Although expected to be a substantially smaller and lower key update than last year’s overarching iOS 7 refresh, recent leaks have claimed that iOS 8 will introduce a new HealthBook application hub, deigned to act as a one-stop destination for all your fitness tracking apps and peripherals.

Seemingly crafted in a similar vein to the company’s Passbook service, which brings all your store cards and travel documents together in one location, HealthBook is expected to be one of the main focusses during CEO Tim Cook’s keynote.

As well as acting as a core focus to iOS 8, it has been widely suggested that the HealthBook platform will act as a precursor to the upcoming iWatch launch.

Although Apple has yet to formally acknowledge plans to launch its own smartwatch device, it is widely expected that the company’s Samsung Gear 2 and LG G Watch rival will enter the realms of reality later this year.

We will be bringing you all the latest Apple and WWDC news during the keynote on Monday so stay tuned to TrustedReviews.
