No plans to show iWatch or new Apple TV at WWDC, sources claim

OS X 10.10, iOS 8 to be core focus

Apple will not show the iWatch at June's WWDC, nor will it premiere a fourth-generation Apple TV there, sources allege. The company is even expected to skip previewing an anticipated Apple TV software update. Instead Apple will reportedly concentrate on OS X 10.10 and iOS 8, much like it did Mavericks and iOS 7 last year.

Something from iOS 8 that could be demonstrated is Healthbook, Apple's entry into health and fitness tracking. The app has been closely tied to the iWatch though, which could mean that it will be kept secret until the watch is announced. Alternately, however, Apple may be preparing an SDK which will allow third-party devices to communicate.

Rumors have generally pegged the iWatch for late 2014, but it's believed that Apple intended to refresh the Apple TV in the first half of the year. Assuming it was delayed, the culprit could be the expected addition of Siri, which might give the set-top voice search like the Amazon Fire TV.

    Everything is a rumor, published to get more clicks and drive AAPL all over the place. Why can't people just wait and see what's being discussed. This is a developer's conference, not a trade show!
