iOS 8 bid to be shown at WWDC’14

image

Apple fans be ready to be overjoyed, one because Apple’s WWDC 2014 will be aired live online this year and secondaly iOS 8 is bid to be shown off at the conference starting on June 2 in San Fransisco.

As a recent rumor suggested that iOS 8 isnt ready for launch due to incomplete split-screen feature( already available in Android) but a banner put up at Moscone Center doesnt say so, rather it has a huge 8 written on it, which indicates only towards the iOS line-up, as no other software requires an update to that number, as we all might know.

Now, the only fact we know Apple would be incorporating in iOS is the healthcare center for fitness fanatics, while no other leaks have been reported. It all depends on the creativity of the Apple design team, whether they can modify the OS UI for good.

Now, just two later we will see what Apple has in the box for us.Hope you all are excited as well.

Comment down what you think of iOS 8 and what other features might we see at WWDC’14?

Apple acquires Beats Music for $3 billion, Dr. Dre finally billionaire

apple buys beats

Apple Inc. finally broke its silence and announced that they have met ground with Beats founder and famous rapper Dr. Dre and the deal has been sealed for $3 billion. As per the terms of the deal, we have already come to know the payment structure where $2.6B will be paid in cash, and the rest $400M in terms of equity.

This is the second biggest acquisition that Apple has ever made. The last being NexT which was undertaken to bring back ‘ Steve Jobs ’ back to Apple and to set it back on its rightful path of creativity( which has now been kinda lost!!? ) . CEO Tim Cook is satisfied with this deal and says that Beats will continue its operations independently providing music to all. He also reports that the Beats Music app wouldn’t be pulled out of the Android and Windows stores for good.

A lot of buzz and speculation has aired about this deal, about what benefit does Apple have by acquiring a radio streaming service, when they have their own ITunes service or from even the Beats Hardware division. As TechCrunch reports, Apple is influenced by the capability of the company to turn the free trial users to paid subscribers quite easily and they would now also have the expertise of Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre on the executive panel too.

So, why do you think Apple bought Beats Music? For their streaming service, or their hardware services for producing headphones and quality sound gear (a rather new market for them)?
