How to watch WWDC 2018: Apple keynote livestream

  • Apple is betting big on Augmented Reality with its new operating system iOS 12

As its name suggests, this is mainly a software event, but we may see some new hardware introduced there.

Whatever the WWDC 2018 keynote announcements may be, the software updates likely won't be available for a few months.

iOS apps will run on Mac operating systems which will make Apple computers and phones work seamlessly with each other. Now Reuters reports that iOS 12 will introduce phone-to-phone AR - so two devices will be able to see the same scene, in sync, in augmented reality.

The feature will no doubt find its way into video games.

Lastly, the Near Field Communications (NFC) feature in iPhones might be slightly expanded to include unlocking of hotel rooms.

There's no official word on what's coming to this new operating system although some reports are suggesting Apple is concentrating on making major improvements to security and stability rather than adding a plethora of extra features. Most excitingly many expect to see support for sleep monitoring, after Apple acquired sleep startup Beddit in May previous year. And there are indications that macOS 10.14 will called Mojave, after the Mojave desert in California.

It's nearly a certainty that Apple will provide updates on new software at WWDC.

The technology giant is holding its annual Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) in San Jose, California, where new features created to improve performance and reliability in its iOS operating system will reportedly be announced.

Earlier, Messages was rolled out for mobile devices with the iOS 11.4 update. The final versions of the iOS 12 and the macOS 10.14 should come sometime in September.

Another iOS 12 feature Apple plans to reveal centers on giving users tools to better monitor their usage habits across apps.

There are not many leaks about watchOS 5, except for a new watchface that is inspired by the pride movement.

Rumors suggest that Apple is working on some kind of update for the MacBook Air, ranging from Apple releasing a cheaper version of the outdated model now for sale according to former KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

We are just days away from Apple's 2018 World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) to kick off. This is the software that will define the experience of 2018's new iPhones, and also update current iPhones and iPads when it comes out to devices later this year.
