Ahead of the Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference 2020 (WWDC20) keynote that is slated to take place on Monday, June 22nd virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During this digital-only keynote, the Cupertino-based tech giant is likely to lift curtains off the next generation of iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS to provide the first look of what’s Apple is bringing for its fans next.
During the WWDC20, rumours suggest Apple is likely to lift up some of the pre-existing restrictions in its upcoming iOS 14. As per a Bloomberg report, Apple is planning to enable apps like Chrome or Gmail to be set as defaults in iOS 14. This change will bring in a big impact on developers who strive hard to step up their competition with Apple’s built-in apps. The iOS users still are using Apple’s old apps. On the other hand, Windows, macOS and Android users can enable third-party apps to be set as default.
According to MacRumors, Apple seemingly working on a new fitness app for iPhone, Apple Watch, and Apple TV that is designed to enable users download fitness-related videos to carry workouts. Codenamed “Seymour,” this app is rumoured to appear in iOS 14, watchOS 7, and tvOS 14. It is likely to be a standalone app that will be available alongside the existing Activity app.
Under the upcoming iOS 14, iMessage is likely to be getting new @-mentions and the option to retract a message from a thread just like we see on Microsoft Teams and WhatsApp.
Moreover, rumours have hinted that soon users could use their iPhones or Apple Watch just like an NFC car key to unlock their car. How would this happen? Well, Apple is likely to launch a new “CarKey” feature. Along with this, news is rife Apple could also bring changes to iCloud Keychain that is tech giant’s in-built password management tool. With this, Apple iOS user will be getting timely reminders to change their passwords along with support for two-factor authentication.
According to Apple, “The all-new Apple Developer Forums will connect the developer community with more than 1,000 Apple engineers to answer questions and engage in technical discussions. Starting the first day of WWDC, anyone can search and view the forum discussions to follow along, and Apple Developer Program members will be able to post their own questions and learn directly from Apple experts.”
Stay tuned as we will bring you more updates once the Apple’s WWDC20 event kickstarts on June 22nd.
