With WWDC 2015 adjusted to kick off on Monday, June 8th, rumours are beginning to distribute about exactly what Apple may be established to reveal to designers during the event. With builds of iOS 9 and OS X 10.11 potentially penned in for trips during the event’s position keynote, leakages have actually begun to show up that case to have the inside scoop on at the very least some of the functions and modifications set to show up as replacement parts of the 2 software updates.


Kicking off, initial reports coming out of the notorious ‘‘ people knowledgeable about the issue’ – according to 9to5Mac –– have Apple adjusted to dump the current Helvetica Neue that presently beautifies iOS and Mac OS X. Having originally showed up as replacement parts of iOS 7 and OS X 10.10, Helvetica Neue was chewed out for its absence of legibility – – a complaint that can not be levied at the San Francisco font that is anticipated to replace it.

Initially seen for the first time on the Apple Watch, San Francisco was designed by Apple to make clarity a lot less of an issue on a small screen.

Ever since the typeface has made the leap to the keyboard of the new MacBook which Apple recently launched and all this indicates that the technique from Helvetica Neue to San Francisco as the system font for both iOS and Mac OS X appears even more of an inevitability compared to an opportunity.


Dumping a system font and changing it with another is not an insignificant activity however, and with experts stating that Apple is readied to bring San Francisco to iOS and OS X, it is clear that Apple has its work eliminated in advance of any sort of capacity beta releases come WWDC time.

As if that isn’t really enough job to be moving on with, Apple is also now reported to be bringing a new Residence app to iOS 9 that will provide users an area to connect every one of their HomeKit applications and functions together. Presently delayed following its news finally year’s WWDC, HomeKit is Apple’s framework that must in theory make it simpler for makers of home automation devices to develop applications and tie-ins for iOS.

Following its statement there has been a worrisome lack of progression on the HomeKit front, at least openly, but a new Residence application could see points relocating the appropriate direction.


Baseding on resources of 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman, Apple’s brand-new Home app is still in the early testing stages however it would certainly allow such points as virtual rooms to be set up to enable the easier management of HomeKit home appliances outward the application. The company and setup of HomeKit devices is most likely to be a key attribute of the Home app when it shows up, with the wireless discovery and subsequent setup claimed to be on the cards.

German’s resources claim that the Residence app may not await prime-time show right now though, so we may need to hesitate a little bit longer to view it in action. That indicates we possibly shouldn’t expect to see it in early iOS 9 betas come WWDC time.
