What We Expect
WWDC is a developer conference, so the keynote should be chock full of information about Apple’s upcoming software updates.
Apple likely will focus on iOS 14, which will be unveiled today and debut this fall.
Rumors suggest Apple may be adding a new Home screen layout, a revamped augmented reality app, new multitasking features, and more to iOS.
iOS also may be renamed to iPhoneOS as the iOS platform splinters into a version for the iPhone and the iPad.
Apple also may announce new versions of macOS, watchOS, and tvOS. watchOS may see a handful of significant changes with support for sleep tracking and stress management.
We may also see some hardware announcements but they are usually just an add-on. Rumors suggesting that Apple may talk about the addition of ARM-powered Macs to their lineup in the future.
