Apple’s annual WWDC 2022 is scheduled for June. The iPhone maker announced on Tuesday that its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will be held from June 6.
Apple’s annual developers’ conference will again be held entirely online this year. However, the firm will permit certain developers and students to attend in-person sessions at Apple Park in Cupertino.
WWDC is centred on Apple’s software services, and it’s expected to unveil iOS 16 as the next iPhone operating system. In addition, new versions of iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS are also expected this year. Furthermore, it’s in the air that Apple may launch realityOS as its initial platform for the rumoured mixed reality headset this year.
Apple’s VP of Worldwide Developer Relations and Enterprise and Education Marketing, Susan Prescott, said, “At its heart, WWDC has always been a forum to create connection and build community.”
Apple’s WWDC, which runs until June 10, will bring together developers and students from all around the world to collaborate on new software and apps built around the firm’s hardware products. Among those might be the next version of iOS, most likely iOS 16, which will include new features and improved iPhone security. However, specifics are now lacking.
Apple’s other hardware devices, like the iPad, Mac, Watch, and TV, are anticipated to get fresh software revisions at the WWDC, similar to the iPhone. It is worth mentioning that stable versions of each operating system will be available following the iPhone event in September this year.
While “software” is the main emphasis of WWDC events each year, it is not necessarily the only focus. Apple has a history of revealing hardware products during WWDC presentations. According to rumours, this year’s developers’ conference may witness the introduction of new Macs, if not anything else in other product categories.
Apple is also anticipated to reveal a new M2 processor during WWDC. Apple’s in-house M2 chips, which are expected to be the M1’s replacement, could power at least one MacBook, one iMac, and one iPad.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, a reliable source of Apple information, recently stated that 2022 will be Apple’s busiest year in terms of product introductions. As Apple does not conduct many events throughout the year, it would squeeze as many product introductions as possible into its major events, such as WWDC. Otherwise, we may see Apple provide new features for the iPhone, iPad, and Mac to enhance competition.
