WWDC 2018 Update: Fixed iOS 12, WatchOS 5, HomePod, And More – Everything Expected To Come
Starting on June 4 Monday until June 8 Friday this year will be the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC 2018) event hosted by the tech giant Apple. It is where various software platforms will be showcased – from laptops to phones and more.
According to T3, Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook and other Apple executives will make big announcements on the stage. Among the things expected to be revealed on the said event will be the fixed iOS 12 and improved Siri and augmented reality capabilities. Group video calls would be nice to see in FaceTime, and a redesigned Stocks app is reportedly included in the changes made in this year’s software update iOS 12, which is internally code-named “Peace.”
Another version of macOS is anticipated also to be unveiled with another new name if the trend of choosing popular places in California is true. However, no rumors or leaks have been heard of its potential name for the new operating system, which is perhaps a sign that it has matured in a way that the company has nothing left to do with it.
Some funky new watch faces would be nice to see for the Apple Watch with some more third-party options like maybe a watch face designer. Sleep tracking would also be nice with the watchOS 5 update, as well as an always-on watch face (like Wear OS) and Face ID as additional features. Apple Watch Series 4 is awaited to have improved battery life since it is one of the main problems of the wearable device.
The company’s event is long-established to be a software event. It also showcases hardware products like the smart home speaker HomePod, which remained fantastic when it was introduced last year on June 5 at the same event. This speaker might be included in the announcements and receive major updates, especially its operating system audioOS.
