Apple announced that the annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will kick off on June 4th. The event will last until June 8, and it will be held in San Jose, California.
Although the conference is intended for developers, it is also of great importance for a wide audience. Usually there Apple presents the largest updates to their operating systems.
Most likely, this year iOS 12 will be presented for iPhone and iPad, MacOS 10.14 for Mac, tvOS 12 for Apple TV and watchOS 5 for Apple Watch. Sometimes devices are also presented at the conference, but it is not yet known whether there will be something similar this year.
iOS 12 will focus on improving system performance and stability, but will also contain several new features such as support for common programs for iOS and Mac. In addition, new Animoji will be added, Animoji support in FaceTime, new emoji, parental controls will be improved, Siri, etc. There are also rumors that there may be a new home screen design in iOS 12, but this change is likely to be delayed until iOS 13 is released.
MacOS 10.14 should also add support for common programs with iOS. The update will focus on performance and stability improvements and should fix all issues in macOS 10.13 High Sierra.
There are also rumors that a new iPad with Face ID will be released this year, as well as a cheaper version MacBook Air.
As usual, we cannot make plans for the future with system updates Apple. Nothing concrete will be known until the company itself presents them.
WWDC is very popular and developers need to register to participate. Later, those who can visit it will be randomly selected. Conference tickets cost $ 1,599. A limited number of free student developer tickets are also available.
