WWDC Highlights from 2007: Flashback

WWDC 2014 is coming soon. Experts can’t wait until Apple presents its next iOS 8 firmware and other products. With the new conference being just around the corner it is curious to look at WWDC history. The most interesting event was held back in 2007 when the company firstly introduced its iOS system and OS X.

The conference was held in San Francisco on June 11, 2007. Its keynote was announced by Steve Jobs who introduced the first iPhone model which was previously unveiled at Macworld. The market didn’t see this smartphone yet but these were the big changes to the lives of many people across the world.

WWDC highlights 2007 also introduced the OS X 10.5 Leopard version which was released later in the fall. The same conference demonstrated the Safari browser which came to Windows and first web applications for the original iOS 1.0 iPhone as developers didn’t have enough time to get the SDK created for this firmware. The high demand caused by customers made devs using web apps at first.

Soon web applications were replaced with native programs. That year’s WWDC gave the start to the iPhone, iOS and Windows Safari. This year’s WWDC 2014 will expand this to the iOS 8 which comes with a lot of new features that couldn’t even been imagined back in 2007. The iPhone 6 is already in high demand even thought it hasn’t been even introduced yet.

Customers can’t wait to see the first sapphire glass display, powerful processor, improved camera and Touch ID sensor in this new generation handset. Apple has a lot of secrets that it will unveil sooner or later.
