I suspect they will -- and for Android, too!
Yes, but the HTML 5 solution uses a lot of bandwidth -- sending down the wire:verbose CSSverbose Javascriptverbose XML or JSON (usually as web services)verbose HTMLimageslinkscookiesmultiple connectionsParaphrasing US Senator, rtd Fritx Hollings:"Day's a whole lotta' bandwidth consuming' goin' on out dare"Now, off to have some raclettes
I suspect your enterprise experience is a lot more current than mine -- when I left IBM in 1980 there was no web.I retired in 1989, and didn't touch a computer again until 1997 ... To get myself current, I taught myself JavaScript -- and implemented a web site with a shopping cart entirely in JavaScript.Later Perl, then ColdFusion which was built atop Java.I haven't done any for pay development since my wife Lucy died, suddenly, unexpectedly in 2001.So, I'm a dilettante...

I always thought OSX was pronounced: Oh-Sex ... great conversation starter: "What do you think about OSX ..."Thanks Apple
Someone said ... "Java: Write once -- debug everywhere!"And, if web-driven apps are the answer -- what was the question

I've read somewhere that NFC could be used too speed up recognizing and connecting to BLE and WiFi devices. If true, then it could certainly improve the shopping and checkout experiences involving iBeacons and WiFi.
Question for anyone who got the public beta ... Did/can you get XCode6 beta 4 too? I ask, because the Xcode beta includes the Swift Language and interactive Swift Playgrounds.
