Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) is taking place on 4 June this year, and it’s one of the Cupertino company’s biggest events. As its name suggests, this is mainly a software event, but we may see some new hardware introduced there. Nonetheless, here are a few things we expect Apple to unveil at WWDC 2018.
New iOS updates are always previewed at WWDC, so it shouldn’t be any different this year. However, unlike iOS updates in the past, iOS 12 may be more focused on refinement rather than offering a bunch of new features. This shift in iOS’ software development has been discussed for quite some time now; it’ll be interesting to see exactly how Apple will accomplish this.
Interestingly, there’s also a chance Apple will be introducing a way for users to manage their iPhone use, according to a Bloomberg report. If this sounds familiar, it should – Google is already doing that with Android P.
New macOS Update
Last year, Apple introduced macOS High Sierra, which is essentially a refinement of Sierra. This year, however, things have been pretty quiet. There are rumours that Apple will be doing some form of integration between iOS and macOS apps, but it’s not confirmed if we will actually see this announced at WWDC 2018.
Regardless, maybe we will get an official name for the next macOS update tomorrow.
Despite WWDC’s focus on software, some hardware were introduced at the event before. This year, we may see some interesting new products. Perhaps a new entry level 13-inch MacBook with Retina display, or even a MacBook Air refresh. On top of that, Apple could refresh the MacBook Pro lineup with newer processors too, like it did last year.
Here are just some stuff we expect Apple to unveil tomorrow at WWDC 2018, and needless to say, there are many other things the company will talk about. The developer conference will start on 5 June at 1AM in Malaysia, and naturally, the event will be livestreamed.
We will be on the ground at WWDC 2018 in San Jose, and if Apple is introducing any new hardware tomorrow, we will definitely be getting some hands on time with them.
