iOS 8 launch live blog: All the news from Apple's WWDC

iOS 8 took centre stage - alongside Mac OS X Yosemite at Apple's WWDC. Our live blog covered it all...

Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) kicked off earlier today with an opening keynote by CEO Tim Cook.

What did Apple launch at WWDC?

In anticipation of iOS 8 being unveiled today, we outlined the

top features we'd really like to see in Apple's latest OS

. Deeper Siri integration and an Apple Maps upgrade were on the wish list, as is split-screen view and enhanced Touch ID support.

But did we get what we wanted? Apple users are a vocal and fickle bunch and the firm will be hard pushed to please all of those people all of the time.

We've outlined some of our WWDC predictions here. But check back for all the action as it happens as we'll be live blogging the keynote from 6pm.

UPDATE 15:19:Less than three hours to go now until the big event kicks off. Excitement is building at the Moscone Centre if recent tweets and pictures are anything to go by. Some of these people have been queuing up since yesterday - that's dedication for you.
