WWDC 2021 is tomorrow: iOS 15, a MacBook Pro M2 and everything we hope for

WWDC21 starts Monday June 7 and begins with a virtual keynote address at 10 am PT. CEO Tim Cook and his team are likely to announce iOS 15, to new MacBook Pro with M2 chip and new versions of software for most Apple products, including a possible new operating system called HomeOS. On Wednesday, a job offer from Apple for a iOS senior engineer included mentions of “HomeOS” that have since been removed and replaced with HomePod.

The publication of the work was not the only possible leak. Apple’s unofficial beta-tester and four-time NBA champion Lebron James could have leaked a new Apple product. King James shared a photo on Instagram which showed him using what appear to be Beats Studio Buds. The only problem is that Apple does not sell wireless headphones and has not announced them. But you can’t entirely blame the leak on LBJ: Last month, The beta versions of iOS and TV OS had mentions of the Beats Studio Buds, also.

Apple Annual The developer conference takes place June 7-11. and how WWDC 2020, it will be carried out entirely online. The five days of virtual sessions come under the increasingly bright shadow of the pandemic. New products and operating systems aside, WWDC is really about giving software developers early access to explore new features with the help of Apple engineers.

A main event on the first day will produce the biggest news with previews of Apple’s upcoming operating systems, probably iPadOS 15, MacOS 12, WatchOS 8, TV OS 15 and iOS 15. There could also be hardware novelties, such as the successor to Apple’s M1 chip and the new “pro” Macs that use M-series processors instead of Intel. Apple first announced its M-class chipsets at last year’s WWDC. The system-on-a-chip is designed in-house and is vital to the company’s transition away from Intel chips.

iOS 14 brought big changes to the home screen and privacy. What will iOS 15 bring? We should find out on June 7.

WWDC21 to showcase the next big iteration of iOS

The next iPhone will probably be called the iPhone 13 (unless it’s the iPhone 12S), probably won’t be released until fall. But a new version of the iPhone operating system is expected to be revealed, probably called iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 for iPad.

Last year, iOS 14 included New home screen customizations, picture-in-picture video, better widgets, a new Siri interface and application library, a new way to organize your applications. IOS 15 rumors point to new notification settings based on your current activity, plus customizations and interactions for widgets and new iMessage features that could make you more competitive with WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.

iPadOS 15 could add customizations to the home screen. Widgets will not be relegated to the widget stack and will instead have more iPhone-like controls.

Apple launch new iPad latest case and a new iPad Pro with M1 chip in AprilBut the distinction between “pro” and non “pro” models is based more on differences in hardware than in software. It would be great to see more iPadOS features that are compatible with “professional” users.

IOS 15 and iPadOS 15 are expected to launch this fall alongside the iPhone 13. For more, read our roundup of iOS 15 rumors.

Apple has just released new iMacs and is expected to announce the next version of MacOS at WWDC 2021.

Apple

Call MacOS 12 with a new California name

One of the revelations that devoted Apple fans enjoy is the name of the next version of MacOS. For years, versions of Mac OS X were named after big cats like Snow Leopard and Lion. In 2014, with the release of OS X 10.10, Apple began dubbing the software after California landmarks like Yosemite and, more recently, Big Sur. So maybe the next one is called MacOS Monterey? Or macOS Golden Door? Maybe MacOS The hollywood sign? Yes, I have no idea.

Not much is known about Apple’s upcoming update to its computer operating system. There have been no specific rumors or leaks and, to quote the Magic ball 8, “Confused answer, try again.”

It could be that MacOS 12 is a smaller update focused on hidden changes. The M1 chips are nearing their first birthday and currently MacOS needs to be compatible with them, as well as Intel-based Macs. But that points to a bigger question: Where are the M1 Pro machines? It is unclear if there will be a new version of the M1 chip at WWDC 2021 or an “X” version of the processor. But many of us are expecting a shiny new MacBook Pro that features the “pro” version of the M-series chip.

WWDC 2021 includes clues and Easter eggs

From Apple advertisement for WWDC it came with an image and animation of a Memoji character looking at an open MacBook. The image is a nod to the memes that appeared later Apple’s November event for Mac, where the senior vice president of software engineering Craig Federighi showed how Macs with the M1 chip can instantly wake up. The video was underlined by the Barry White’s Song Playing Your Game, Baby and it was appropriately cheesy.

The motto for WWDC 2021 is “Shine and behold.” As usual Apple event invitations and announcements include Easter eggs. Could the fact that the Memoji is wearing glasses with a reflection of software elements be a provocation for the Rumor has it that Apple’s augmented reality glasses? Or maybe “glow” is a reference to the headlights on the rumored apple car? Or maybe the The photo with its animation is just a nod to the new features of MacOS. and its dock?

New hardware announcements have a consistently inconsistent track record at WWDC. In recent years, Apple has shared a major revamp of several key products and teased for upcoming Mac hardware. But if Apple plans a new product like AR glasses, it needs software (ROS anyone?) and developers to create applications for it.

WatchOS 8 could bring new health features to the Apple Watch

In addition to iPhone and computers, expect software updates for the Apple watch. Like MacOS, hardly any details about WatchOS 8 have been leaked. That said, there are several persistent rumors from the past few years that have yet to materialize.

One rumor May 2020 is the inclusion of mental health characteristics. For example, him Apple Watch 6 has a pulse oximeter which could be used in conjunction with heart rate readings to detect high levels of stress and even panic attacks.

Another rumor dating back to 2017 hints that the Apple Watch can control blood sugar levels. However, this seems like a feature that would be revealed at the launch of the next Apple Watch, as it would you will probably require new hardware such as a spectrometer to perform the measurements.

One feature that many of us look forward to is removing the dependency of the Apple Watch from the iPhone. We saw the IPhone divorces Mac with iOS 5 in 2011. It’s unclear what is required in terms of hardware and software to achieve this, but it would open up the Apple Watch to people without iOS devices.

Here’s how to watch WWDC21
