If you've been anticipating the debut of some new category-defining hardware at Apple's upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference, a word of advice: Dial back your expectations or be disappointed. Sources familiar with Apple's plans tell Code/red that Tim Cook will not use WWDC to unveil Apple's mythical wearable device. Nor will he use it to show off a new Apple TV, or even preview the new software the company is developing for it. Which makes perfect sense, really. T

There's little point in Apple unveiling a new OS in advance of a significant hardware update. As 9to5Mac's Mark Gurman reported Thursday, the big announcements at this year's WWDC are going to be OS X 10.10 and iOS 8 and, perhaps,the rumored Healthbook app, Apple's coming foray into health and fitness tracking.
