Apple’s WWDC 2022 is mostly aimed at developers. But it’s also a good opportunity to learn what’s next for Apple’s core software and get a glimpse of new items that could be on the way. There’s even a chance that a hardware product may be released.
WWDC 2022, Apple’s annual developer conference, will begin on June 6 and end on June 10. The big day, though, will be the first, when Apple’s keynote will unveil all of the exciting software developments to come. We’ll get a closer look at iOS 16, as well as updated macOS, iPadOS, watchOS, and tvOS versions.
As rumours about an Apple AR/VR headset and RealityOS gain traction, we anticipate seeing new tools that developers will be able to utilise to create the applications of the future, maybe with a concentration on augmented and virtual reality. Perhaps the long-awaited MacBook Air 2022 will finally be shown.
What to expect at Apple’s WWDC 2022 event?
Apple’s key software platforms are expected to receive a slew of improvements and next-generation versions.
iOS 16 is sure to attract a lot of attention as we come closer to the iPhone 14’s projected release. The Health app and how iPhones handle alerts have both been set for big updates in iOS 16. Additionally, iOS 16 is expected to include a revamped lockscreen with interactive widgets.
We may also expect to see iPadOS 16, which will most likely demonstrate how the greatest iPads can be used as more powerful devices for a variety of purposes; one rumour is that iPadOS 16 would have a true desktop with resizable windows. This might pave the path for the iPad to eventually replace your laptop.
The new macOS 13, which is expected to have a revamped System Preferences and updated main applications, could also garner a lot of attention. And Apple’s next-generation silicon, led by the Apple M2 processor, might be unveiled. It may make an appearance in the new MacBook Air 2022, which is scheduled to be completely redesigned, with lower bezels and a variety of new colour options.
Apple is expected to unveil watchOS 9, which might include a number of health-tracking enhancements as well as connections with Apple’s HomeKit, Apple Wallet, and Apple Fitness Plus. Later this year, the Apple Watch 8 will come preinstalled with it.
So far, no speculations about tvOS 16 have surfaced. However, we’d like to see some additional features added to it, such as smarter show suggestions. Apple might also show off a slew of new Apple TV Plus shows.
Finally, there have been reports that Apple would show off their AR/VR headset at WWDC 2022. However, according to recent reports, Apple’s headset will not be unveiled at WWDC, in part because Apple does not want its competitors to mimic what it is doing. However, we wouldn’t be shocked if AR and VR play a role in some of Apple’s next software solutions.
