In a nutshell 

WWDC is the event that usually opens the door to ’s plans for its big yearly software updates for iPhones, iPads, and Mac computers.

There are also might be news about new hardware products, some of which are in dire need of an update, like the MacBook Air.

You can watch the live stream of the event on the company’s own website, though it requires either Safari or Microsoft Edge on the desktop. It’s also available through the Apple Events app on the TV.

Here are what major announcements we expect from the WWBC 2018:

  • Sofware updates

Everybody is waiting for iOS 12 of course but you might be disappointed.  According to a report from Axios, the next major iOS update is said to focus on improving reliability and performance, which, given the almost unending stream of issues with iOS 11 following its release last fall, is probably a good thing.

iOS 12 will be the first major update to iOS following the introduction of the iPhone X, so it’s possible that we’ll get some new functionality that will be better able to take advantage of the iPhone X’s gesture interface, as alluded to by ’s chief design officer Jony Ive when the phone launched last November.

Other updates include Siri integration in the Photos app and more control over the Do Not Disturb feature for blocking notifications.

Axios’ report also mentioned that there are still some new AR and health features in the works for this year’s update.

  • macOS new version

Few rumors exist about macOS 14, the successor to macOS 13 (a.k.a. “High Sierra”) that’s currently the latest version for Mac computers. Also, perhaps we’ll get a confirmed name for the next version of the Mac operating system.

  • watchOS 5

MacRumors claims that Spotify may be coming to the Watch alongside a new “StreamKit” framework in watchOS 5, which would be a pretty big deal if true. There’s also probably going to be the usual slate of new watch faces (including a Pride-themed one that’s already leaked) and fitness features, as is usually the case for a watchOS update.

  • MacBook Pro

pple’s MacBook Pros have been having a rough time, with increasing complaints about failure with the butterfly-style keys. While it seems unlikely that we’ll get a full-fledged redesign this year (the current model is only a few years old), we might get an update with upgraded eighth-generation Intel processors at the very least, and maybe an increase in RAM.

  • MacBook Air

Rumors have been swirling that is working on some kind of update for the MacBook Air, ranging from  releasing a cheaper version of the depressingly outdated model currently for sale (according to former KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo), to a Digitimes report that claims that has a new entry 13-inch MacBook model planned with the same Retina display as the existing 13.3-inch MacBook Pro.

  • iPhone SE 2

hasn’t launched an iPhone in June since the iPhone 4, but it’s possible that the long-awaited follow-up to the iPhone SE might show up at WWDC this year (assuming it exists at all.) There’s a small possibility we’ll see the new low-cost device at the event but still, the theory exists.
