New reports said iOS 8 and new Mac OS X 10.10 will show up in WWDC 2014 on June 2, while Apple TV and iWatch will not. The Cupertino-based electronics company has been set for its annual big event, and is expected to have iOS 8, Mac OS X 10.10, Healthbook app, iCloud enhancements and some app updates as the highlights.

Re/code said sources who are familiar with Apple's plans told them what to expect in next month's Apple's big yearly event. The mythical watch, Apple TV or the any Apple TV software should not be anticipated. Tech experts said Apple is making sense as to why should a new OS like the Apple TV software be unveiled before a big update of its hardware.

Big announcements in the event will be OS X 10.10, iOS 8 and the Healthbook app. Coincidence or not, with regard to the Healthbook, days before WWDC 2014, Samsung will have an event in San Francisco on May 28, which is said to discuss "around health".

iOS 8 will showcase its new features and there are chances that Apple will divide the mobile OS' new features to versions 8 and 8.1. The upcoming iOS 8 devices will be powered by the new and powerful A8 processors, and are predicted to come with larger displays and longer battery lives.

For the new version of Mac OS X 10.10, it is said to inherit some of the iOS features and is a total redesign. Apple intends to make its products have uniform experience across devices. The upcoming hardware will support the new OS X and the first shipments will be in the autumn.

Meanwhile, earlier reports said a new Apple TV software is in the works and may show up in this year's WWDC. As the event comes near, reports reiterate Apple TV will not show up. This goes true with the iWatch. The company will likely have them both come out later this year or early 2015.

Coming along the Healthbook app are some updates for iTunes Radio app, Maps and more. iCloud is said to be enhanced for simpler and more efficient development. Siri may also get a new feature to identify songs.
