WWDC 2014 Liveblog: All the latest from Apple's Keynote

Because if no one liveblogs it, it hasn't happened

09.49 - Bastille being played a very high volume right next to my head. Wonder if there's any way I can convince them to switch it to Basshunter.

09.45 - Things are heating up. Someone next to me just tried to get up and found themselves unable to navigate out due to too many people. Really hoping that wasn't an aborted toilet break... this thing is two hours long.

09.30 - I'm are sitting comfortably waiting for the event to begin. T-minus 30 minutes people. Are you excited? You better be. COME ON. BE EXCITED. No? Oh, okay.

09.10 - A spontaneous game of "hide and seek" breaks out - unfortunately one person hasn't quite grasped the concept of "hide."

08.59 - Wonder what this is referring too? Eight new devices to be shown off? The number of times Tim Cook will address Dre as "The Doctor" during his keynote? Or maybe, just maybe, it might have something to do with iOS 8 - probably not though.

08.51 (San Fran time) - In the glorious "holding area" of the Moscone West centre in San Francisco waiting with the pack of assorted press from around the world for the main doors to open at 09.00.

That's a full hour before WWDC 2014 kicks off, so plenty of time to elbow my way to the front and attempt to storm the stage.

Spoiler alert

After the retail updates that nobody cares about and the reminder that Quite A Lot Of People now use iPhones, Tim Cook and co will probably announce some upgraded Macs and MacBooks and a new version of OS X Mavericks named after another California surf spot.

Then, after exhaustively running through the minutiae of that, we'll hear about iOS 8 and its Healthbook app. There'll be some vague hints about what the iPhone 6 will be capable of, but it's very unlikely that Apple will actually announce a new iPhone today.

Then come the wildcards: could Tim Cook finally let us in on the cosmic joke that is the iWatch? Will he announce an Internet Of Things friendly standard for the iHome so you can control your future fridges with your iPhone?

Will Dre come out and drop Still D.R.E. with Eddy Cue filling in for Snoop?

There is no way to know until the whole shebang kicks off. So join us here for our liveblog at 6pm BST / 10am Pacific / 1am June 3 Australian Eastern time - or join in the fun over on Twitter.
