Apple CEO Tim Cook and some of his fellow Apple executives took to the stage at WWDC 2013 in San Francisco on Monday to unveil what the company has been working on, and what we should expect from Apple for the rest of 2013. Apple had lots up its sleeve for the keynote, confirming several of the rumours that had been circulating before the event. But we'll have to wait a little longer for some of the hoped-for new devices, including a new iPhone and a new iPad.
OS X 10.9: Correct
Yep, as expected, Apple unveiled a new iteration of its OS X, this time ditching the big cat names for good in favour of the California-themed OS X Mavericks. So that rumour about OS X 10.9 Lynx was incorrect. See: Why did Apple call OS X 10.9 Mavericks?
OS X Mavericks has several new features, including a tabbed Finder, multiple display support, Maps, iBooks and more. See: Apple previews OS X Mavericks
iOS 7: Correct
Apple has gone for a dramatic redesign with iOS 7, ditching skeuomorphism to bring a flatter, cleaner look to the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch operating system. See: Apple iOS 7 announced at WWDC 2013
As well as the redesign, Apple has added several new features, including a new Multitasking system, new Camera and Photo features, a Control Center for quick access to toggles, new Safari, AirDrop and iTunes Radio.
New Mac Pro: Correct
There were rumours that a new Mac Pro would put in an appearance at WWDC 2013, but not many (except this guy) expected such a radical redesign. On Monday, Apple gave us a "sneak peek" at the all-new Mac Pro, which has been redesigned both internally and externally. See: Apple launches brand new, redesigned Mac Pro
New MacBook Air: Correct
Apple did announce a music streaming service during the WWDC keynote, which is called iTunes Radio.
The service, which is built in to iOS 7's new Music app, has more than 200 featured stations that have been created by Apple, and that you can customise to suit your personal tastes.

New iWork: Sort of correct
Apple did preview a new version of iWork during the WWDC keynote, but it wasn't a new Mac or iOS version. It's iWork for iCloud, which brings the iWork apps – Pages, Numbers and Keynote – to your web browser.

New MacBook Pro: Incorrect
Many rumours pointed to new MacBook Pro models at WWDC 2013, but Apple didn't update the laptops this time. We expect to see refresh reasonably soon, though, as we think Apple will want to launch Haswell models of the Retina MacBook Pro at some point soon.
Those MacBook Pro owners who traded in their laptop in preparation for a new model at WWDC will be disappointed, then. See: US reCommerce site sees 171% jump in MacBook trade-ins as WWDC refresh rumours flood in
New iPhones: Incorrect
No new iPhone models were launched at WWDC this year, despite many reports suggesting we could see a cheaper iPhone, an iPhone 5S or iPhone 6, or even a bigger, iPhone 'maxi' at the event. This left some Apple watchers disappointed, but we don't expect to see any iPhone announcements until later this year, maybe alongside iOS 7 in autumn.
New iPad mini, iPad 5: Incorrect
Apple didn't announce any new iPads, either, which might come as a blow to accessory maker Gumdrop, which manufactured 15,000 iPad 5 cases in preparation for a WWDC launch… we did say it was unlikely!
Even though some Apple watchers believed that Apple's WWDC 2013 logo hinted at an Apple smart watch, which has been dubbed iWatch, there was no unveiling of the device at the event.
We think it might come next year, though, as Tim Cook has confirmed that Apple is working on "exciting new product categories" for 2014.
Rumours of an iWatch have been hot topic so far this year, with sources claiming that Apple has a team of 100 people working on the product.
Further evidence came in the form of an Apple patent application in February, which describes a wearable computer with a flexible display that can snap around the wrist to become a smart watch.
Apple Television: Incorrect
Rumours of an Apple television set have been circulating for a REALLY long time now, but it still didn't emerge at WWDC. While many are still skeptical about the idea of an Apple television set, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster is a big believer in the product, and has been insisting that Apple will launch such gadget since 2009. His latest prediction claims that the iTV will finally come to light this year.
However, Cook's comments about new product categories would probably cover an Apple Television, so maybe we won't see it until 2014. If ever…
New Apple TV: Incorrect
Apple didn't update its Apple TV either. The Wall Street Journal believes that a new Apple TV set-top-box that will erase the distinction between live and on-demand TV could be on the cards, and may be the TV venture Apple watchers have been waiting for.
