Here’s what you should expect from Apple’s WWDC 2022 event next week – new software as well as hardware
As previously mentioned, Apple will host an online event on June 6th to showcase its latest offering in the software division. In addition, we have reported on several occasions that the company may also introduce new hardware. However, it is not certain if Apple plans to announce the new MacBook Air, MacBook Pro or Mac Pro. The event takes place from June 6th to 10th and gives developers and engineers the opportunity to play around with the new tools. The company will hold several video sessions with developers and engineers that will allow them to better understand the tools they use to develop apps and other software. What we can expect from Apple at its WWDC 2022 event, we’ve put together a list for a better understanding. Check it out below.
Apple will announce its upcoming iOS 16 to developers with a plethora of changes and new additions. As for what to expect from the build at the WWDC 2022 event, the company won’t be releasing a major facelift to its mobile operating system, according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman. However, there will be a boatload of other future-oriented additions such as new apps and new ways of interacting with the system. In addition, the OS could also bring changes to notifications and new health tracking features. Apple could retool the iOS 16 interface to better accommodate the iPhone 14 Pro models’ dual-cutout display. There may not be any new changes for the rest of the models.
iPad OS 16
iPadOS 16 is rumored to bring new multitasking features. This is because the iPad gets faster with every upgrade, and the new M-series processors are fast enough to handle full-fledged apps like Photoshop or Final Cut Pro. Earlier it was also heard that Apple might be working on a new multitasking interface. This will potentially bridge the gap between iPadOS and macOS that users have been anticipating for some time.
macOS 13 could potentially borrow features from iOS 16 and iPadOS 16, as was the case with SharePlay and Shortcuts last year. While no specific details are available, we should expect redesigned icons and improvements across the operating system from macOS 13 at WWDC 2022. Apple could bring the look of macOS in line with that of iOS and iPadOS to streamline visuals across the board. That’s because Apple Silicon allows us to run iOS and iPadOS apps natively on the system and it would only make more sense for the entire system to be seamless in terms of design.
At the WWDC 2022 event, watchOS 9 is expected to feature a new power saving mode that will reduce the wearable’s power consumption. The new mode does not limit the functionality of the device, but reduces power consumption for longer battery life. In terms of health and fitness, watchOS 9 is expected to expand atrial fibrillation detection to measure “strain” or the number of times a person is in the condition. Aside from that, Apple will also be adding new workout types and metrics to the Workout app. As for looks, the company may add new watch faces for a fresh look. Check out the latest concept of the Apple Watch Series 8.
tvOS updates have always been small when it comes to forward-looking features. The upcoming tvOS 16 update may bring new screensavers into the mix. There will be a boatload of new improvements under the hood, but nothing concrete has been mentioned so far. Nonetheless, we will share more details on the firmware as more details become available.
Earlier it was rumored that Apple will launch its iMac Pro in the summer. While rumors about it died down due to production complications, we’re hoping Apple will announce it at WWDC 2022. Apart from that, new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models powered by Apple’s new M2 chips are also expected. The new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models are expected to come with a new design.
That’s all folks. We’ll share more details on the matter as soon as we hear a word. You can read more details here. What are your expectations for WWDC 2022? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
