What to expect from the WWDC keynote?
The company will be discussing several software and hardware products that we are going to see this year. The next iOS version is the company’s basic announcement of WWDC. At the moment nothing has been shared about the next generation of iOS 13. But this time the iOS 14 is going to come with improved multitasking features, fresh home screen layouts and a new face-lift to its AR apps among others. The coronavirus outbreak has also affected the production for the next iPhone so the company might also push back the launch event of both the device as well as iOS 14 to October.
One prominent development will be a new branding for iOS as well as iPhone OS. Yes, speculations are being made that the company might change the name of these products.
Recently, Apple’s software chief, Craig Federighi announced that from now on iPad will run on its own OS. The new operating system for the iPad will be called iPad OS and will no longer run on iOS. It is going to have its own native operating system which will share the same core of both iOS as well as macOS. While the specific details of the new OS for iPad are yet to go official we expect the company might also discuss it at the conference.
The company might also include the major changes it has made for its Mac devices over the years in its Keynote. As per the rumours the company is most likely to introduce its latest iMac computer this year but it is not confirmed where this will take place at WWDC. The newly designed iMac is expected to be offered in two screen sizes of 21.5-inch and 23-inch options with narrow bezels.
The company is also expected to shift from Intel’s processor to its own RM-based processors for Mac computers. Reports suggest its chipset will be based on the unannounced A14 processor. Hence this step will give Apple more control over its hardware development in order to increase the speed and make its devices more powerful.
