Follow all the happenings from WWDC 2014 live with iMore!

While we all love BlackBerry, there's no denying that today's a pretty big day in the tech sphere — and whatever your preference when it comes to mobile — it's always worth paying attention to what Apple is doing at its annual WWDC event which just so happens to start today. Most of the week is dedicated to developer sessions but the show is opened by a keynote address starring CEO Tim Cook and other assorted Apple executives. And our pals at iMore are on the ground in San Francisco covering the whole thing live.

iOS 8 and OS X 10.10 are certainly on the cards along with whatever new features they each bring to the table. This is the big Apple event of the year so if you want to know what's going down, then you'll want to be following iMore.

Fortunately, they've got a spiffy new event page all set up to pull in every single little thing you'll need to know. Apple will be streaming the event live online – as usual to Mac owners using Safari – as well as iOS devices and the Apple TV. If you don't fall into any of those categories – and even if you do – the iMore liveblog is the place to be.

Head on over there to keep up with things as the day goes past!

UPDATE FROM KEVIN: Some of the comments on this post are pretty funny. For YEARS now, we've always done a pre / post Apple event article on whatever their big news of the day is. Look, Apple is a huge part of the smartphone / mobile industry, and what they do tends to affect everybody. If you care about tech news, and even just BlackBerry news, it's important to know what the competition is up to now so you have context on the things you do care about. HOWEVER, if you really, really just want to avoid the news at all cost, then I suggest you jump over to our June CrackBerry Giveaway where you can **WIN AN IOU for your choice of BlackBerry Classic or BlackBerry Windermere smartphones. Totally awesome prize!

Just like every other release since the 4s, you will see minor incremental improvements with no new innovative concepts or ideas. The platform has reached the end of its innovative capacity.

While you probably will see iOS 8 today you won't see new phones most likely. Maybe a new laptop.

IJKBB10

Curious to see what other features they may have borrowed from other platforms s and called it their own lol.

I am anxious though to see how the new iPhone 6 design will look. I know it ll be a bigger version of the iPhone 5s but curious to see if they make it look better than what everyone is expecting it to look like.

Wtf is this on here for! This is exactly why I went on a rant the other day. Crackberry is really starting to suck and not give a damn about BlackBerry.

Kevin is using an iphone all the time and now they are posting articles about apple. What happened to the passion and the love for BlackBerry here? Seems like it's gone.

If you haven't noticed, the Mobile Nations sites have been posting a wider range of content across ALL of its sites. That's right, go over to androidcentral.com and see what you'll find. The exact same article. It was posted to all of the Mobile Nations sites. This has been going on for a while now and it was pretty obvious to me. Especially with Kevin saying this was going to be happening. Nothing to be worried about. It's just Mobile Nations acting more as a unit and less as individuals. Everybody remain calm.

Posted via CB10

davehong

I regularly visit wpcentral and crackberry, and it's annoying to see the same article in two places. I get the cross-posting, but from an information architecture point of view, it might be cooler to just go to Mobile Nations for a roll-up of all articles in one place?

thisiscjay

If you think about it long and hard, this probably benefits BlackBerry more than any other platform...

thisiscjay

Well given that BlackBerry has the least traction in contrast to the other platforms, any type of mind share via any form of social media would be solid for promotion of products, news and services etc

davehong

I'm not sure I understand 100%, but thanks for explaining :)

thisiscjay

Well basically BlackBerry news is spread across more websites. I would say that is a good thing...

davehong

Ohhh - in that situation, sure. When 10.3 goes live, and Mobile Nations cross-posts that to all their properties, huzzah!

Kevin Michaluk

DUDE. FOR THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS WHENEVER THERE IS AN APPLE ANNOUNCEMENT WE ALWAYS GIVE THE HEADS UP ON IT ON CRACKBERRY BECAUSE IT'S THE BIGGEST TECH EVENT OF THE DAY AND PEOPLE WHO ARE INTO TECH WANT TO BE INFORMED. PLUS, KNOWING WHAT THE BIGGEST COMPETITION IS UP TO IS IMPORTANT (KNOWING IS HALF THE BATTLE, RIGHT?!)

THIS IS NOT NEW TO CRACKBERRY. WE'VE DONE THIS FOR YEARS. IF YOU'RE GOING TO MAKE A COMMENT RANTING THAT WE'RE CHANGING AND GOING DOWNHILL AT LEAST DO YOUR HOMEWORK BECAUSE YOU ARE SO WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG.

HAVE A NICE DAY :)

BB fans seem to be on edge these days. I knew that an Apple post would set people of like an email from T-mobile.

Yes I'll admit I was in a bad mood this morning and went on a little bit of a rant.

But how does this prove anything except that your just posting a lot more apple news?

I wasn't the first person upset. I am a die hard BlackBerry fan too. I have purchased at full retail dozens of BlackBerry devices including the Q10 and Z30. On othere BlackBerry sites there wasn't any mention of apples boaring updates to iOS.

This is not that big of a day in tech world. Ohh sure Apple is finally updating their garbage email service. And even better their opening the fingerprint reader to third parties. Imagine the security on that.

This site does seem to be loosing the passion sometimes and I'm not even close to the first one to say it.

Also why am I the only one getting yelled at because I'm a BlackBerry fan an not an apple one?

ArcPlug

I know. I was being facetious.

ARWestenberger

The saddest part is that nothing huge got announced. There were rumors that at least one new device would come out, but no such thing happened. I find it hard to judge $1600 for something like this in the first place, but if you aren't going to give them something juicy, at least lower the price. Shame on Apple, getting as much money out of people while they can. I feel like the brainwashing is starting to wear off, BlackBerry just has to hold on long enough for people to start craving something new. I think BB10 is the perfect prescription for iOS overdose.

Biggest event from Apple outside the iPhone 6 unveiling is pretty important no matter where you stand mobile wise. iOS 8 will be announced and it may look and/or borrow ideas from competing platforms.

Antoniius

It's only important if you give even the slightest damn about apple which I do not.

If I wanted to be data mined I'd switch to iphone. Thankfully I have a secure BlackBerry Q10. Crackberry is starting to get on my nerves. Seems like the passion for BlackBerry is gone here.

Posted by Antoniius via my sexy Gold and White Q10.

A895

Give it rest. Like you can run a BlackBerry website and have as many resources as CrackBerry. They do a lot already and besides the Z3 there is not much going on BlackBerry wise.

Posted via CrackBerry App

Antoniius

Give it a rest. Most other BlackBerry sites have no problems finding news on BlackBerry.

Do I see apple sites posting news on BlackBerry?

No they don't. Unless it's negative. Why not give them a taste of their own medicine and show how embarrassing email is on an iphone.

I come here for BlackBerry news, if I wanted news on crapple I'd switch.

Posted by Antoniius via my sexy Gold and White Q10.

A895

Then leave. Your insistence on personal entitlement can go somewhere else.

Posted via CrackBerry App

Kevin Michaluk

And that's why CrackBerry gets more traffic and visits in the first day of a new month then the rest of the BlackBerry sites get in an entire month.

Because CrackBerry is WAY EFFEN MORE than a "news" blog. It's our all encompassing approach of news, help and how to, community forums, app content and services (accessories, apps, wallpapers, ringtones) that make us the go to destination.

In reality NEWS is a small subset. Most "average" BlackBerry owners don't care about news. They care about getting the most of the phone they own and addressing problems when they have them.

It's ok - I don't expect everybody to understand that (especially if you're one of the ones who only care about the news).

But if you think we're doing something wrong, you're wrong. The results and our success over the years is evidence of that. If we weren't doing things best of breed, we'd be changing so we were.

My mission is always the same... to be the best. Period.

@antoniius I agree with you 100%, not sure why CB doesn't give bbry users the benefit of having enough intelligence of being able to source out apple info should they wish without having it thrown in their faces. Personally I think it's just part of the seo game, sort of like a article on how to turn your phone on, or how to answer a call. Perhaps it's just a way of spinning several articles out of one. Oh wait isn't there already a program for that.:)

Anyway I never get excited about reading non bbry stuff i.e crapple, or android app reviews in a cb forum.

I guess the same way BB "innovated" WebOs ideas. To the point that they actually confronted Mike L. at CES about it and Big L. ducked his head and wouldn't speak.

Stop Hating Bro. Every "borrows" from someone else.

Prem WatsApp

Apple doesn't need to copy. Or so we should think. With their budget, they should have come up with WAY more than they have.

At Prem's price, they could have bought BBRY probably a dozen times over, and still have cash to spare.

Amazing what a comparatively small house (with tiny cash reserves) like BlackBerry has been pumping out in the same time Apple (with their multi-billions) gave us iOS 7 and a fingerprint reader. And a thinner iPad.

Btw, I'm not hating. I just don't like their boring phones being touted as the manna from heaven.

It'll happen. Chen is not going to all of sudden pull a 180 out of his ass to get the market to buy BlackBerry, all he can hope for and by default, what you can hope for is that they can survive on Enterprise. Other than that, their time in the consumer smartphone market is up.

Don't let bias cloud your vision. We all know Apple makes the best selling phones in the world, and WWDC showcases the new OS that will be on those devices this year. Ignoring the competition is what BlackBerry did and look where they are at now.

Best selling mobile phone? I thought that had moved to Samsung?

Samsung sells more phones overall. The iPhone is the best-selling individual phone.

Thanks for this. Some of these folks here forget that Samsung sells a bunch of different phones.

This is a blackberry site, understood.

Crackberry should run a poll that asks users if they solely want to see Blackberry stuff, or Like seeing other "big" headlines or information from other platforms. I, for one, am here for Blackberry. I legitimately do care about what's going on with Apple, as well as all other platforms, but I research them independently. This is where I come for Blackberry info, and do not want to see Apple stuff. I would rather go back to the days of seeing less info on a daily basis, than including iphone and/or other phone headlines for the sake of having something to read.

For one my wifes iPhone will now be annoying her to upgrade and further slow her phone down. She's already stated her next upgrade will not be an iPhone.
Secondly click bait to get us closer to that 10 million post goal (here's my contribution lol)
Third this is going to force a lot of people to upgrade their old iphones as they probably won't work well with the new os but that's all tech at this point.

I don't care if other people want a bb10 device I wanted one and that's all that matters.

Kevin, are you enjoying money earned from selling CrackBerry somewhere in the Caribbean?
If yes, please say my hello to Mr. Heins. Guess he must be there either ;)

Just tried it and it's pretty out of date, like going back to legacy. Have fun over there!

Is this the show where apple invents NFC, the watch, and giganticism? The new 6 phone is so good your 5 will choke and die as soon as iOS 8 is loaded. ITS. THAT. GOOD!

So will we see smoke emanating from iPhone 4s and earlier? If we pile them can we get a bonfire?

If they come with something new we can talk about it and if BlackBerry could use it. Aside from that I don't want to hear apple news on CB.

They just ripped off the toast notifications feature from bb10! Didn't blackberry have a patent for that?!

I'm seeing a lot of what BlackBerry already has (quick reply to messages, contextually aware typing suggestions) or what we know is already in the pipeline (gestures for deleting messages in the hub). I'll take it as a good sign. As I'm not a Mac user there's a lot I don't care about relating to iOS/Mac interoperability, but some cool stuff none the less. I hope BlackBerry is able to come out with some similarly cool magic to allow you to work from your phone/keep conversations going when you switch to your PC, etc.

Thanks Kevin for bringing us the news of the day. I, for one, am curious. Did Apple try to copy BBRY in some way because we do things better over here?

Try not to let them get under your skin and thank-you for not going all censorship on us by deleting the offending posts while they may be annoying, you are not crushing free speech (unless it violates the TOU's)

They have interactive notifications -_- f The iPhone

Apple is doing some awesome things even given them the option of using third party keyboards.... BlackBerry is the best in keyboard smartphones.

Even football teams scout other teams to be aware of their strengths and weaknesses whether the fans hate the other teams or not.

iOS 8 will kill BlackBerry with its better business support and better typing :( BBRY needs to give us new things and apps!

Sir_Augie

Better typing? Iphone's keyboard is hideous, nowhere close to BlackBerry 10's virtual keyboard, much less the physical ones...

Loved the Q10 but now it's Z30 power time!!!

I'm all for AAPL forging ahead or however you want to describe it. It'll just push BlackBerry to innovate and push their own envelope.

I have no problems with iOS coming out with features that BlackBerry has had for sometime. It's confirmation BlackBerry was / is on the right track. Now that it's catching with Apple, BlackBerry has to find something else new, or expand on these features to stay current.

bombastic

I agree.

Something about copying other people's stuff is the greatest compliment you can give them (?)

BlackBerry just needs to keep being innovative and in time do some aggressive marketing. Showing people where the real innovation came from that exists on their iDevices. In due time, just not right now. Let it simmer. Let's get BlackBerry going, moving, running ;)

Hopefully Apple has a better trick up their sleeves than to think they are going to bank on a super-expensive i(diot)Watch.

i have closed my ears to everything that starts with an "i" or is associated with Apple because they have consistently released spec-inferior products for a rip-off price. Apple caters to people with a big bank accounts, and small brains.

The presentation was cool, lots of "new" features and nice nifty stuff. BUT! The whole time I was thinking, why the BlackBerry Desktop software for Mac is so disgustingly horrible? Anyway, this is not the point of my comment.

The point is that, time ago, while I use to have a Curve with BBOS 5/6, and later Bold with BBOS7, I use to have a great Mac OS desktop integration via a nifty little app called BluePhone Elite, witch helped me to use my Mac computer as a bluetooth headset and to receive and send my SMS directly from the OSX desktop.

Somehow, later this app was was discontinued. But I still miss that BlackBerry/Mac OS X integration. Is there any possibility to do something like that for BlackBerry 10? Or I may forget about it and relax?
