The most persistent rumours ahead of Apple’s WWDC

Andrew Sadauskas /

Speculation about possible new Apple products is mounting ahead of its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) this week.

The conference kicks off with a keynote speech at 10am US Pacific Time on June 2, with the announcements coming during the early hours of the morning Australian time.

Following the keynote, at which Apple is likely to introduce new products, the tech giant is holding a range of workshops for developers.

Because many of the sessions will deal with technologies announced during the keynote, the tech giant is refusing to announce what many of the developer sessions will even discuss.

Ahead of the conference, speculation is running rampant about possible announcements by the tech giant.

The Wall Street Journal predicts the tech giant will unveil iOS 8 and a new version of Mac OS-X and a connected home platform, but is not expecting any new hardware at the show.

Apple rumours site MacRumours reports the company is likely to introduce new iBeacon technologies at the show, along with a health tracking app and smart home toolkit.

Meanwhile, Mashable predicts split screen for the iPad, updates to maps and Siri for Macs.

Some claims have already been debunked, including a report published on GSM Arena claiming to show slides unveiling a new iPhone 6.
