WWDC 2014: We're here in San Francisco for the launch of iOS 8 and more

Apple's 2014-flavoured Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) is soon to start with Tim Cook's keynote kicking off the whole shebang and Pocket-lint has arrived at the Moscone Center in San Francisco to cover the events as they happen.

Thanks to banner teasers that were erected in the last couple of days, we fully expect iOS 8 to be previewed, with a number of key new features for the iPhone and iPad operating system. In addition, the latest Mac OS X should be detailed, which many have taken to calling OS X Yosemite thanks to the backdrop of the Apple banner featuring one of the location's famous landmarks.

Other things expected to be unveiled include Apple's own smart home automation software for iOS, which will allow iPhone and iPad owners control over compliant home electronics and lighting systems from the one hub. Also, we suspect more on Apple's in car infotainment system CarPlay to be explained. For a start, there's a solitary car sitting in the lobby of the Center - surely it's there for a reason?

The event starts 10am PT, 1pm ET and 6pm in the UK, so join Pocket-lint for all the news and information as it happens. Until then, why don't you check out our guides on what might be shown during the WWDC keynote and the features of iOS 8 that have been rumoured in the build up.
