Apple Watch Dev Kit a Go at WWDC, but No New Apple TV According to Rumors

Unlike the iPhone introduction, Apple got the message that what people really want for their Apple Watches are native apps. It about a year for the company to get the message about what its smartphone customers really wanted, with Steve Jobs initially giving advice to would-be developers to write web apps for the device.

However, Tim Cook is expected to announce a developer kit for the Apple Watch when he takes the stage at the World Wide Developer Conference on Monday. In addition, the company’s been dropping hints that it would allow deeper access to the device than it currently allows.

However, what was expected to be a slam-dunk is turning out to be not such a sure thing. Hopes were riding high that Apple would introduce a new Apple TV to replace the current version that it rolled out back in March 2012. Rumors are now surfacing that a revised device may not make an appearance.

In any case, Apple will unveil what’s new for their operating systems on Monday, June 8.
