It's an exciting time of year once again for Apple faithful as the company prepares for its Worldwide Developers Conference, starting Monday at Moscone Center in San Francisco.
As its name suggests, WWDC is largely about upgrades to software, the lifeblood of Apple's remarkably successful hardware, from Macs to iPhones and iPads to the new Apple Watch. This year should stay true to form with anticipated upgrades to iOS and OS X for Mac, as well as news around HomeKit for home automation and for mobile payments.
But the big new offering expected to come out of WWDC could be a formidable competitor for Spotify in the form of an Apple streaming-music service powered by iTunes and the Beats music service that Apple acquired last year.
Other upgrades could include a smarter, more helpful Siri, a force-touch feature for iOS 9 like that currently seen on Apple Watch, and hopefully some new announcements around software for that hot new wearable as well.
But wait, what about the interminable wait for an Apple HDTV? CNET expects the wait will continue, but wouldn't that be a nice surprise for next week?
