The past years have been quite complicated for big events. After all, companies had to adapt to the constraints caused by COVID-19. In 2020, we saw the rise of digital-only formats through streaming. Back in the last year, companies started to invest in hybrid forms. This year, the situation is partially cleared, and we’re seeing companies bringing back some popular events. There are big events in the tech industry to reveal new hardware, but there are also events related to software and development. Earlier this month, we saw Google making its move with the Google I/O. The search giant used the event to disclose various details regarding Android 13 and the beta program. Furthermore, it used the event to unleash the Pixel 6a and to tease the Google Pixel Watch and Pixel 7 series launch. Now, it’s time for Apple to make its big move with the Apple WWDC 2022.
The Cupertino-based firm has finally published the schedule of its World Wide Developer Conference, which is set to kick off on June 6. The opening event is usually the big day for everyone looking at iOS, macOS, watchOS, and other news related to Apple’s house of software. For the first time since the pandemic, this will be the first time that Apple WWDC will bring some on-campus attendance of developers. Therefore, we expect this year’s event to be bigger than the last ones. Despite this, the keynote will be available online and will be streamed live on Apple’s website. Other channels include the Developer app, Apple TV, and YouTube.
Apple WWDC: iOS 16, iPadOS 16, WearOS 9 and more
As we told before, the Apple WWDC keynote will bring details about the company’s new software iterations for its platforms. The company will present iOS 16, iPadOS 16, watchOS 9, and the next iteration of macOS. For iOS 16, the leaks say that there won’t be drastic changes made to the visuals. However, Apple will change the way we interact with some apps. Moreover, the Settings UI and menus will get some refreshments and changes. We also expect the company to introduce new features. Hopefully, this time around, the company will be able to deliver all announced features at the release time. iPadOS is essentially iOS with some custom features for large devices. We expect the new OS to introduce some new additions and enhancements for multi-tasking. After all, Google is improving its tablet experience, and we expect Apple to answer.
The first keynote will bring details on the new software, and begins on June 6 at 10 am PDT. Then at 2 PM, PDT, the company will share details about the Platforms State of the Union. Their developers will get details and info regarding the new tools, technologies, and features for apps.
