The first WWDC happened in 1983 and was once a purely developer match till round 2002, when the corporate started to use the display as a spot to announce new merchandise, together with running programs.
What will we find out about WWDC 2019?
We know the date: June three-7.
The corporate additionally allotted a graphic for its information (above).
As you’ll be able to see, this includes a stylized human head with a mind stuffed with code. Apple additionally stated it might, “celebrate the breakthrough work of developers who are creating new experiences in areas including machine learning, augmented reality, health and fitness,” at the display.
While that is slender pickings for conjecture, it kind of feels lovely transparent Apple’s making plans to display us slightly extra round all 3 subjects.
This would possibly contain new CoreML options, will undoubtedly see information round AR Kit and would possibly conceivably see the corporate disclose slightly extra regarding its sensor tendencies and plans for the Apple Watch and virtual well being.
What will Apple indisputably speak about?
WWDC is Apple’s developer match. The corporate all the time finds its plans for brand spanking new running machine improvements at the display – it should achieve this because it wishes builders to construct product for its platforms, they usually want perception into any adjustments to the OS options and APIs.
This makes it lovely positive Apple will disclose new variations of macOS, tvOS, iOS and watchOS at the display.
What will we expect in iOS 13, tvOS 13, watchOS 6 and macOS 11.
Some highlights of those releases would possibly come with:
- Mac/iOS: News on Project Marzipan and new units of APIs that make it more uncomplicated for builders to port iOS apps to the Mac.
- Additional information round tvOS, probably together with APIs builders would possibly make a selection to use so as to combine the Apple streaming media carrier it’s anticipated to announce later this month into their merchandise. (Will Apple in the end crack social media on TV?)
- watchOS: We’re positive to see improvements right here, and I’m curious if Apple will announce API’s for 3rd-birthday celebration scientific units – you’ll be able to hyperlink your watch to health club apparatus, so why now not to a middle observe?
- Privacy is undoubtedly going to get discussed. Apple’s battle towards surveillance capitalism will proceed, as will its struggle to give protection to consumer privateness from the social and political distortion loss of on-line privateness has generated.
- Health-related and accessibility improvements really feel inevitable (to me).
- Siri gets smarter, extra Shortcuts, extra CoreML-based totally intelligence. Expect center of attention round voice improvements, further seek domain names and progressed context and native consciousness.
There are any other OS improve rumors in move at provide. These come with such things as a brand new darkish mode on iOS, enhancements in report control and multitasking on iPad, muted electronic mail conversations and sleep monitoring.
What may Apple speak about?
It turns out cheap to believe that Apple will accompany information on Project Marzipan with information on new Macs upon which to construct the iOS apps that now run on Macs. This is a developer display, in any case.
What higher to accompany this match than a look at new Macs?

- An improve to the professional desktops may encourage an improve to the patron/professional iMac vary (iMac, iMac Pro) neither of which were given enhanced in 2019.
The center of attention on gadget intelligence, analytics and AR suggests we’ll see improvements in CoreML, Metal and ARKit designed to make it more uncomplicated to expand AR reviews on Macs to be used on different Apple units.
This additionally implies additional information at the USDZ AR layout Apple presented closing 12 months and a few center of attention on slicing-edge AR reviews, similar to the ones as soon as advanced by means of unfortunately defunct UK corporate, Blippar.
While Apple is anticipated to introduce new iPads, AirPods and in all probability the brand new AirPower quickly, its upcoming particular match in March is most probably to center of attention on information on Apple’s new streaming video content material carrier and (I assume) release of a low-price Apple TV “stick” designed to make this carrier to be had to much more houses.
(Apple would possibly communicate slightly extra about its strikes to make its services and products to be had on televisions from 3rd events).
What else do you expect?
We’re getting into the yearly Apple rumor season at this time – those claims and speculations will no doubt amplify as extra claims emerge from within Apple Park. I’ll check out to stay you posted.
