This year Apple will hold the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) virtually. The opening is scheduled for June 6, but the conference events will last all week. On the first day, the company is going to present significant software updates for its major devices and some new products, according to Bloomberg.
It is expected that the conference will present an Apple headset for mixed reality. Most likely, they will not be able to fully implement it in June. However, the headset may be released during the iOS 16 cycle, which will begin in June and run until the release of iOS 17 in the fall of 2023. Conference participants will probably be able to get acquainted with the augmented reality operating system for the new headset.
Apple also plans to release several new MacBooks in the next few months, so they may well be introduced at the conference. One of the new products will most likely be the MacBook Air. Other models being developed are the updated Mac mini and 24-inch iMac, as well as the affordable MacBook Pro, which will replace the outdated 13-inch model. Also the new Mac Pro and iMac Pro models which are currently under development are worth mentioning.
As for the software, we shouldn’t wait for a complete redesign of the iOS interface yet. However, a new iPadOS multitasking interface may appear. Apple Watch can also get major updates for tracking activity and health.
The conference will take place from 6 to 10 June, completely virtual. The most important news is expected on the first day. The company will deliver an annual speech about new software and other products. Later that day, Apple will deliver a speech known as the State of the Union, which is aimed at developers.
