    Apple is beginning to decorate the inside of the Moscone Center ahead of WWDC, adding banners for OS X 10.10 and iOS 8. A photo of the iOS 8 banner has been supplied by BusinessInsider's Jay Yarow, depicting a simple "8" on what appears to be a watery background.

    Apple's iOS 8 is expected to retain the same general look as iOS 7, offering polish along with several new features including a health-aggregating "Healthbook" app, new TextEdit and Preview apps, and possible improvements to both Siri and Maps.

    We will get our first glimpse of iOS 8 on Monday during Apple's WWDC keynote, which kicks off at 10 AM Pacific Time. Apple will be live streaming the event and MacRumors will also provide a live blog, live tweets via the MacRumorsLive Twitter account, and a spoiler free page for those who want to watch the full keynote at a later time.

    Update 11:38 AM PT: MacStories has provided another image of the banner, which can be seen below:

    I love this look, just like OS X poster last year.

    Now covering? Wow, that seems odd for Apple! That water sort of reminds me of Mavericks!

    The fact that I am excited about a banner with the number 8 on it is clear proof that I am an  fanboy ! A proud one none the less :)

    Hope we don't get a hundred sycophant threads about how great the typography is, as we did on 7.

    Hopefully they will get rid of the awful Safari icon and choose a decent looking one. About the rest, I really wouldn't know what to ask for, but a better functioning Siri and public transportation in Maps.

    Really can't wait to see the OSX one...should give us a hint at the name. Last year it was the mavericks wave, but no one knew that.

    Yup. Interesting shift to Myriad for the '8'.

    Okay so where is the guy in the forums from yesterday who said iOS 8 was only a rumor at this point and therefore the iOS 8 sub-forum shouldn't be created yet?

    Last year, the iOS banners came first. A couple of hours later, the OS X banners came. Don't give up yet.

    hmm... maybe we will see some design revisions after all, hoping to see more features than iOS 6 brought, it was more like 5.2 than anything else.

    I bet all the workers received years of training to contain their excitement properly. I'd be a bit more like:
