What will Apple announce at WWDC? iOS 12, MacBook, iPhone SE2 rumours

Patently Applei Phone wrap-around screen patent

Apple's WWDC 2018 runs June 4-8, 2018, in San Jose, USA. So it will be no surprise if this year is another "hardware-less" WWDC.

Apple are set to implement new tools on devices to tackle addiction.

The event will kick off at 10:00 PM, Pakistani time.

Siri is also expected to become smarter with the announcements expected at WWDC 2018 keynote.

Elsewhere, while a new Apple Watch model is unlikely, popular suggestions for what Apple might unveil for WatchOS 5 include the addition of Spotify, new fitness features and a native Podcasts app. Sales of this latest hardware, which Apple launched in February, have been unimpressive. Moreover, Alibaba (BABA - Free Report) and Xiaomi are notable competitors in this space due to strong demand for their products in China.

Siri Update will be competitive with Google's assistant, and Amazon's Alexa.




Apple could also roll out an upgrade to its MacBook Pro range, it's been suggested.

The recent uptick in software flaws reflects the challenge Apple's engineering team has faced in recent years designing a system that works across a growing array of devices, former employees and analysts said. Consequently, it is expected that Apple will tread cautiously over upcoming software updates.

iOS 12 is expected toinclude performance improvements, redesigned basic apps (like Stocks), new Animoji and a greater focus on augmented reality. Per Forbes, the focus will be on "stability and bug-catching, rather than any significant changes to the OS".

Apple is also expected to roll out new "Digital Health" software that's created to soothe our tech addiction by allowing us to monitor how much time we spend on our phones.

Specifics what on what Apple will release are hard to come by.

The WSJ claims that the number of bugs has been higher in iOS 11 than any previous version of Apple's mobile operating system. However, enabling this feature also raises a privacy issue, as it requires people to scan their environment (which in most cases will be a home or personal space) and share it online to cloud servers, in order to be downloaded by the second person.
