Apple Set to Kick-Off it's Annual Worldwide Developers Conference

Issue 24

06.22.20 - Apple is offering a teaser glimpse for their new software - and many are speculating maybe even some hardware — for its biggest products during its annual Worldwide Developers Conference.

The multi-day event is closely watched by consumers and developers alike for hints at what to expect from iPhones, iPads, Macs, the Apple Watch, and Apple products in general. This year, for the first time, the event will be entirely virtual because of the pandemic. Those who want to watch it can stream the event on Apple's website now.

At the event, Apple is teasing new features for its upcoming iPhone operating system, iOS 14, including a new home screen experience. Apple also is announcing the ability to choose third-party apps like Spotify and Google Maps as defaults over Apple Music and Apple Maps.

On the hardware side, many speculate that Apple could announce a long-rumored switch to its own chips for its Mac computer lineup - a move that could lead to improved battery life and sleeker devices. It's also possible we could see a redesigned iMac, long-awaited over-the-ear headphones or an object tracker called "Tag."
