WWDC 2015 preview: 5 huge announcements we expect from Apple on June 8

Caitlin McGarry | June 4, 2015
Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference is always chock full of announcements. We're guaranteed to see previews of the next versions of iOS and OS X--after all, that's why developers flock to San Francisco for the event. But this year, substantiated rumors are swirling around a new streaming music service, a refreshed Apple TV, and truly game-changing new iOS features.

That means third-party apps will be able to tap into the heart rate sensor, accelerometer, and gyroscope of the Watch without having to wait for the Watch to relay that information to the iPhone Health app.

This will obviously have huge implications for fitness apps, specifically, but we're curious to see what kind of heavy lifting the Watch can handle on its own.

Developers will get the SDK at WWDC and can launch their refreshed apps this fall.

Disagree with our predictions or have a few more of your own? Let us know in the comments what you hope to see at WWDC, and check back here June 8 for our live coverage of the event — it's gonna be a good one.
