Apple said on Tuesday that their annual engineering conference, WWDC, would run from June 7 and continue until June 11. The company says its WWDC 2021 will feature the theme of the day and events of the State of the Union, online sessions, 1 labs: 1 developer, and more.
In 2020, Apple hosted its first digital WWDC only because of this epidemic. A year later, in a number of countries, including the US facing a growing number of Covid-19 cases, Apple is continuing with a visible conference instead of a public consultation event. Often, thousands of developers and the media flock to Cupertino, California to attend the annual engineering conference.
It is unclear what Apple actually plans to announce in its speech of the day, hosted by company CEO Tim Cook. But we were expecting to see new versions of software for iOS, MacOS, WatchOS, tvOS, iPadOS – software that enables the iPhone, Mac, Apple Watch, Apple TV and iPad.
Last year, Apple used the International Developers Conference to launch iOS 14 and its updated widgets on the home screen. We also saw the announcement of iPadOS 14, MacOS Big Sur, watchOS 7 and other updates. Perhaps the biggest news that has shaken the entire tech world is Apple’s move to an ARM-based chipset over processors powered by Intel for its Mac computers. Later that year, Apple officially launched new Macs powered by M1, the company’s first ARM processor for Mac.
Apple is not known for announcing new hardware at WWDC, although it had previously announced the Mac Pro at the event. Although Apple has not yet confirmed it, there are reports of a company holding a separate event next month to announce a few new products.
One of the persistent claims is the arrival of updated iMacs with a new design and Apple Silicon under the hood. IMac has not received a face lift since 2009. Last month, Apple unveiled the Mac Pro, a powerful desktop machine. It also stopped selling the 21.5-inch Mac with 4KGB display with 512GB and 1TB SSD to choose from. There are also rumors that Apple is launching a new iPad Pro with an A14X chipset and a mini-LED display.
