Apple is planning to unveil smart home technology at its upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference next week, according to a report by the Financial Times.

Apples Rolls Out New Software Updates for Developers at WWDC14

Apples Rolls Out New Software Updates for Developers at WWDC14

TheStreet (June 2, 2014) — Apple introduced new operating system updates at the World Wide Developer's Conference in San Francisco, Yosemite and iOS8. OS X.X for laptops and desktop computers is now called "Yosemite". Updates to the platform allow devices to communicate more effectively with other Apple devices. This will help compete with Google Drive and Google Docs and will push users to stay within the Apple eco system. Apple's newest "employee" Dr. Dre made a cameo appearance by phone to help demonstrate how computers will be able to locate iPhone's within the home. This function will allow users to make and receive phone calls through their computers. iOS 8 for iPhones and iPads helps that process as well. But, there are also updates for sharing pictures and controlling home appliances, Home Kit, and making mobile devices more hands free in vehicles. Users will also be able to aggregate health information from all the apps they use in Health Kit. Sergio Quintana reports from San Francisco. Video provided by TheStreet

What to Expect When Apple Debuts Its Next iPhone Model

TheStreet (June 24, 2014) — While Apple has been as coy as ever on what it has in the pipeline, here’s what we can likely expect from the next iPhone launch. First, the unveiling of the next Apple smartphone should occur in early fall, perhaps as soon as mid-September. Second, pundits bet the next model will veer away from the traditional numerical naming system, instead being called iPhone Air. According to leaked snaps circulated on Reddit, the iPhone could boast a larger screen than what the current four-inch models have. Lastly, backloaded revenue from Apple supplier GT Advanced Technologies indicates this model will use sapphire crystal for its display screen material. Video provided by TheStreet
