    How excited are you for WWDC 2015 on a 1-10 scale?

    I was most excited for an Apple TV announcement, but it sounds like that isn't going to happen. So this year I'm a little less excited than usual, about an 8 for me. Especially looking forward to native Watch Apps, and fewer bugs, higher quality, and tweaks in iOS 9. Should be a fun event!

    Excited to see what's in store for OS X. Name, San Francisco system font (admittedly not new to me), system-wide dark mode (hopefully), performance improvements, and probably other things I haven't listed here.

    Not as big as Yosemite last year, but still worth seeing.

    System-wide dark mode for OS X, improved performance on Macs. iOS 9 will be the big performance/bug fixing update we've been wanting ever since iOS 8 came out. I don't really care for the A5 support since I'm on an A6, but any performance gain should be a good one.

    I don't care at all for the rumored streaming service or an updated Apple TV since I don't use either. I'm all-in though for some more sneak peaks at upcoming MacBook Pro's though.

    To be honest, All I'm looking forward for in this event is the new iOS9 wallpaper :p

    Was kind of interested in a new AppleTV, but that's gone now, apparently. Have not liked iOS 8 and Yosemite very much (interface changes I don't appreciate and functionality that simply doesn't work reliably) and assume the next versions will make me even less satisfied. So I'm approaching WWDC with a mix of "meh" and a sort of muted dread (first world problem, to be sure!).

    I have always been all ears for the announcements, but since I'm not a developer there isn't much for me to look forward to. I'm all for stability improvements tbh I've had no real issues, so no excitement.
    I've not been wowed in a while, but happily enjoy and am constantly appreciative and amazed by my current tech.
    I will buy the iPad rMini update if it follows the iPad Air 2 lead, but that won't be covered there. This may be the first year I don't tune in during work. I will catch it when I have free time.

    As far as OS X, I am. For iOS, not so much. It's rumored to be a maintenance release, and honestly, I have very few issues with iOS 8. So I doubt it'll mean much to me.

    This is the snow leaped we've been waiting for. I'm excited 9-10.

    I expect multi-window for tablets and the 6S/6S+ since they will have 2 GB of RAM from here on out. As for iOS9, under the hood, better power management, expanded features would work well enough for me. 7/10. I will be taking a huge exam during WWDC's keynote, so no time to focus on WWDC at that time. I will be free after my 4 hr exam.

    My heart tells me 10, 10, 10. But my brain is telling me dont get your hopes up. Im excited for OSX 10.11, but Im very doubtful iOS 9 will be much.

    I am excited to see if Apple is going to release a GoogleNow Competitor. They should seriously by Hound like yesterday.

    10. I'm always excited for WWDC. I love when they announce software updates for the products I use every day

    Excited to see what's coming. Almost as excited to finally have less guessing and "what do you think" type of threads. ;)

    6. I was an 8 until I realized I won't be home to watch during the keynote :(. Somehow for the past few years I've always been able to watch it live. I think we'll be surprised at whatever they unveil.

    9, but only because there's almost no chance of new hardware being announced, but something tells me that the "epicenter of change" has to be a big surprise! I do not recall Apple having a tagline like that for WWDC, can anyone confirm?

    Also, every 5th WWDC has had something big. 2005 had the announcement of the transition to Intel and 2010 had the iPhone 4, so fingers crossed!

    I can relate to that! I like to keep my iPhone with the standard app arrangement and only change the default wallpaper around half a year after the newest iOS is released :p

    I'm excited always for WWDC. This year though there has not been any leaks for the most part and that makes me think it's gonna be something big.

    I'm always excited to hear what Apple has been working on. So the Apple TV isn't expected this year.. maybe next year.

    Tentatively excited to see what's announced, but I think 2015 will be a big year of change.

    Time will tell...

    This will be the first year in a long time that I will actually be free during the Keynote address, so I'm excited to watch this year. However, I don't expect any groundbreaking features in software to come forth, just improvements, so it is a little difficult to get hyped for this one.

    1. I've been in this game long enough to realize it is best to set your expectations very low and let Apple exceed it. If you set your expectation too high, you're just going to be disappointed every single time.

    I'm not expecting much from WWDC, a simple optimization update for iOS and OS X is all I want. OS X and iOS needs to be more responsive, less buggy, and just be fast. Windows 10 is already very fast on the same hardware compared to OS X Yosemite, so I'm disappointed in Apple overall for bloating the OS up to the point that Windows 10 is the OS i'm looking forward to.

    It's a blight on OS X history, especially if it's not resolved in the next iteration.
