WWDC 2018: Will there be any new hardware reveals?

  • Apple always capitalizes Control Center wherever it’s

I am hoping Apple will announce software features that make both the iPhone and Apple Watch better.

Apple will nearly certainly present us with our first look at iOS 12 at its annual WWDC conference on Monday.

Gurman believes that this year's event - which begins on Monday, June 4 - will be predominantly about software, with all hardware announcements penned for later in the year.

The event comes a month after Google showed off its latest software, including upgrades to the Android operating system that powers roughly four out of five smartphones in the world.

Some iPhone and Apple Watch owners may soon be able to unlock doors and pay transit fares with their smart devices. Additionally, it also adds that there could be a possible redesigned home screen or updates to bundled apps that were originally said to be delayed.

There could be a new iPad Pro with Face ID, and the AirPower wireless charger is long overdue now. Earlier on, Bloomberg had disclosed that Apple will be introducing ARKit 2.0, which will enable multiple users in the same virtual environment where they can play AR games against each. Thousands of app developers, a few members of the media, and Apple employees will stuff into the McEnery Convention Center for four days of discussions, classes, and updates on the latest updates to Apple's various software platforms. In general though, iOS 12 is predicted to largely be stability updates and bug fixes.

We could also see a series of more minor announcements, including the ability to temporarily snooze notifications, track changes on the stock market, and even sending Animoji creations over FaceTime communications. At last year's conference, for example, Apple upgraded almost its entire Mac line, previewed the iMac Pro, launched new iPad Pros and showed off the HomePod smart speaker. If everything goes according to plan, the company should release the first iOS 12 beta to developers shortly after noon on June 4th. Apart from this Apple has also fixed the vulnerabilities in iBooks that allowed the hackers to bypass password protection. I expect Apple to announce a few features in its operating systems that make them more secure and cut down on the vulnerabilities.

Siri Update will be competitive with Google's assistant, and Amazon's Alexa.
