APPLE CEO Tim Cook will present the latest versions of Apple’s software for iPhones, iPads, Mac, Watch, and TV on Monday to kick off WWDC, Apple’s annual developer conference.
The new “bits,” as attendees often call the updates, are the biggest Apple software announcement of the year and set the public strategy for Apple’s platform over the next 12 months. For example, iOS 16, as Apple is expected to call the new software for iPhones and iPads, could include improved notifications, a redesigned lock screen, and updates to the Messages and Health apps, according to a report from Bloomberg News.
But Apple’s long-reported mixed-reality headset is unlikely to make a debut next week.
Holding WWDC in-person this month sets the stage for a fall launch where Apple will show new phones, and maybe even a high-end mixed-reality headset, in front of a live crowd to get immediate hands-on feedback from the press and partners. Just like the old days.
