For Apple, WWDC is the event to introduce everything new happening inside the Cupertino headquarters. The event has traditionally remained the debutant stage for the company to showcase its upcoming releases for iOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS operating systems, and other major updates on a series of devices. 

Pre-event rumors have suggested a series of updates to get unveiled at the event. And, the major focus will remain on the bug fix in major iOS to make it more responsive. The developer based event is likely to showcase updates on software initiatives including changes for App Store, SDKs such as Siri and ARkit and new gaming technology for macOS. Here is an extended glance at the change to happen.

What You Can Expect At WWDC 2018?

This year’s WWDC event is going to be no different. Apple is all set to introduce iOS 12, MacOS 10.14, WatchOS 5, TvOS 12, and new software for the HomePod, among a number of other happenings yet to be disclosed. Here is what MobileAppDaily knows so far:

iOS 12:

Last year’s iOS 11 launch was as much promising as any other year’s. There were changes to iCloud, Siri, Apple Pay and much more to this list. But, the result was not much satisfied for the users. The new rollout for iOS 12 is again expected to be grand with a series of features including Animoji integration into FaceTime, deeper and much better Siri integration, Do Not Disturb enhanced version, more AI Integration, and a redesigned home screen.

TvOS 12

Last year the technological giant confirmed Amazon’s video app was coming to Apple Tv. And, this year, the company’s focus will remain on TvOS12 along with original TV programming. The company is believed to spend $1 billion on original TV programming. 

MacOS: 10.14

MacOS High Sierra was last year’s Apple gift for the users, that was a major update. That update was likely to focus more on deep technology. In 2018, a new version of MacOS with cross-platform compatibility is all set to launch. This will allow iOS apps to run on Mac for the very first time.

New iMac and iBooks

The almighty iMac range is all set to get revamped. There could be an entry-level MacBook to be introduced at WWDC 2018. The speculation for such an announcement is higher than ever.

WatchOS 5

WWDC 2018 may showcase a new version of watchOS. However, no official details are available on the same. The software won’t hit the market until late this year considering the fact that WatchOS 4 has just released.

In addition to all the changes jotted down here, WWDC will launch new iPad models and cheaper Homepods too for the users.
