With Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference scheduled to begin on Monday, June 6, Apple reminded everyone by posting a teaser that the annual event is indeed “fast approaching.” The fun and festivities begin at 10am PDST (1pm EDST) and the conference will run through Friday, June 10. The event will be held online, although a select group of developers will be part of a viewing party at Apple Park.
For the past two years, the keynote has focused solely on software releases, but it’s not clear whether that trend will continue this year. As for iOS 16, we expect larger, customizable widgets that would be known internally as “InfoShack.” Notifications should be improved, although it is not yet certain what this means. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has talked about “new ways of interacting” for iOS 16, but we’ll probably have to wait for the event to see this in action.
WWDC is fast approaching Apple reminds us
Apple iPadOS 16 may include improvements to the tablet’s multitasking capabilities. One option rumored by Gurman is a “pro mode” for iPadOS that would give users larger screens to work with. As for watchOS9, Apple will presumably make some tweaks to its watch faces and add a new power-saving mode that allows Apple Watch users to continue using apps and features while saving battery life.
