Apple’s WWDC 2014 conference kicks-off later tonight and already we might have some hints at what the company plans on unveiling. The Verge has spotted a couple of banners at the Moscone Center, which hint at the eventual unveiling of iOS 8 and OS X 10.10.

The first banner has a huge ‘8’ in the center of the banner which obviously hints at the unveiling of iOS 8 later tonight. The design and simplicity is quite similar to last year’s banners for iOS 7. Apple is expected to unveil a host of new features including Healthbook, along with polishing the overall operating system.

The background image suggests that the forthcoming OS update will have a land-related codename. According to MacRumors, chances are the OS update could be called Yosemite or El Cap since the background image depicts a rock formation at a national park in the US called El Capitan. These two names also happen to be a part of the list of names trademarked by Apple.

OS X 10.10 is expected to introduce a host of visual changes including a much flatter look and will also borrow design cues from iOS 7.

WWDC 2014 kicks off tonight at 10:30PM IST and Apple will be streaming the event live on its website.
