Last minute leaks suggest Apple will discuss CarPlay, WebKit at WWDC keynote

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
With just hours to go before Apple CEO Tim Cook takes the stage at the company's annual Worldwide Developers Conference, two of the company's talking points may have been revealed after new Apple code appeared in the open-source WebKit project and cars were spotted on display in the Moscone Center.




A number of vehicles -- one of which is Ferrari's FF -- have been spotted stationed in various locations around the conference floor. That likely points to a focus on CarPlay, Apple's new iPhone-powered "infotainment" solution.

CarPlay was officially announced by Apple at the Geneva Motor Show in April as a rebranding of the "iOS in the Car" functionality unveiled by the company at the 2013 WWDC. The new vehicle infotainment system will display iPhone maps and play music from a vehicle's dashboard, and even features an advanced, contextually aware artificial intelligence system aims to assist users while they drive.

In addition to aftermarket units, CarPlay support will be built in to new select 2014 vehicles from Volvo, Honda, Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar, Hyundai, and Ferrari. Future partners include Ford, Chevrolet, BMW, Kia, Toyota, Nissan, and Mitsubishi.




Additionally, a number of classes that seem to point to an impending overhaul of the WebView functionality in iOS and OS X were added to WebKit's GitHub repository Monday morning. The changes were checked in by Apple WebKit developer Geoffrey Garen, and were first highlighted on Twitter by developer Conrad Kramer.

WebKit is an Apple-supported open source project that forms the basis of the Safari web browser. The new classes appear to reference OS X 10.10 and iOS 8.0, which Apple is expected to unveil at WWDC, though there is little additional information about what changes may be in store.

Some have speculated that Apple may bring WebGL to the next version of mobile Safari, allowing developers to build more immersive web-based applications, including games. The company might also broaden iOS support for WebKit's Nitro JavaScript framework.

There it is in source code: version 10.10.

That will surely save WWDC 2014 from being the most boring WWDC ever!

And maybe smart watches too? Probably not since they'd most likely launch something like that with the next iPhone in the fall, but it's still nice to dream eh? Love my Pebble Steel, but something that was smaller and better integrated with my iPhone like the Gear line does with Android phones would be awesome. You don't realize how handy it is getting text and other info on your wrist without having to pull your phone out during meetings or social settings until you've lived with that ability for a bit. Would love to see what Apple could do with that functionality.

The BGR has some blurry photos of the 10.10 screen shots. It appears to be flat, translucent, etc. The icons are still traditional although the dock is no longer 3D.

Apple puts a Ferrari in Moscone West.

People assume it’s about CarPlay integration.

Tim Cook announces the Apple Jonathan, Apple’s own car, built in conjunction with Tesla.

Tires that don’t use air, so they can’t go flat.

Electric, of course, but with Apple battery tech so it can go 600 miles on a charge.

Recharges to 80% in an hour.

Completely integrated with iOS devices.

And your house.

Wasn't the Pippin their failed video game console 20 years ago?

I'm hearing those screen shots are fake. I tend to believe it because Mark Gurman says he had these leaked images a couple months ago yet he never published them on 9to5Mac. I don't think it would be difficult to fake an OSX screen that has an iOS 7 look to it.

This page has officially crippled AI servers.

You don't have the bandwidth for those large images.

There are only 350 users online at the moment too.

Really, in the keynote?  Can't see it.  There is plenty that goes on at WWDC that doesn't get included in the keynote, and I would expect improvements to WebKit and stuff about CarPlay to end up a few rungs down in one of the sessions.

There's only one colour for a Ferrari:

It would be easier just to write, "Everyone but VW Group and Tesla are supporting CarPlay."

It's amazing how much time is wasting dealing with the people that can't separate a period used a decimal point and a period used as a separator between alphanumerics.

Typical Apple.  Completely unoriginal and stolen ideas.  Charles Goodyear created the vulcanized rubber tires that didn't use air back in 1844.

I don't doubt that Apple will mention CarPlay as it is a major initiative. But it will only be a focus in regards to the 'review' side of things. They have the cars there to visually promote the idea that CarPlay isn't just in dowdy Eco-cars etc

True about CarPlay.

 

I agree: it's so annoying dealing with people who seem to think that 10.10 is the same as 10.1 and could therefore cause confusion with Puma because a full stop is exactly the same in appearance as a decimal point... 😃

Uhm%u2026 do you really think they're going to use keynote time on WebKit just because the nightly build now supports 10.10? C'mon people, show some perspective.

If there is a new engine that is exceptionally fast they may. I believe they've done such comparisons in the past.

I don't think I heard "carplay" mentioned once and i only missed about the last 6 minutes of it. I hope there are follow up images to why these cars were there. I noticed on the list that Landrover isn't mentioned doesn't Jaguar own land rover or something like that?

Probably part of one of the workshops.

I noticed the same thing. I found this surprising with the cars they placed in Moscone. I assumed they would rehash CarPlay again and update us with how well that's coming along. I am glad they didn't. I really dislike when, in a few months, they'll go over Mac OS X and iOS all over again right before the release, but I understand why they do it.
