Three days before WWDC 2015, so it's time to take stock of the situation and figure out what could Apple present. The event will focus mainly on software (iOS and OS X), but there could also be some surprises not related to the two operating systems. We find out what ... Read more after the jump.

iOS 9 - Probability: 100%

The WWDC will have as protagonist the new iOS 9 for iPhone and iPad. This operating system will focus mainly on improving performance even on older models, but do not miss the news related to Maps and, above all, a function that Spotlight will improve and make it similar to Google Now: the user can perform operations in a natural way and dynamic, interacting even more with Siri and the operating system.

 This system will be able to integrate with the app everyday. For example, if a user frequently uses Facebook when he wakes up at 7 am, in Proactive appear a button to access Facebook right at 7, then disappear automatically after a while '. In addition, Proactive will be able to show with restaurant recommendations concerning reviews, providing information on local best that can be found in the vicinity of the user.

 Still, if the user enters a flight within the Calendar, and saved my boarding pass Passbook, the new screen Proactive see a bubble with the flight schedule and the possibility of quick access to the boarding pass without having to first launch the app Passbook. The potential is very high.

In addition, the iPad could get the split screen to use two apps simultaneously.

Music Streaming - Probability: 90%

Almost certainly, Apple will show the public its streaming music service. With this proposal, users can subscribe to $ 10 a month to listen to stream most of the songs in the iTunes catalog. 'likely that this service will be presented by Dr. Dre.
