We are getting close to Apple’s next developer event which is going to happen next week on 5th June. The conference will officially kick off on Monday at 10 AM PT, and throughout the week, we will cover the whole event. The most important question related with WWDC 2107 is that – What to expect with Apple’s developer event this year? We have collected some information from the leaks and previous developer event, to find out what will be going to happen in the upcoming developer’s event.
We divided this article in two section of Software and Hardware, so let’s get started with the software.
Apple’s services and OS are among the best in the world, talking about iOS which is still the advanced OS yet, macOS which is also best OS and various other services which are doing well in the world. The major focus of Apple at the event is the new version of iOS as iPhone’s business is the prime source of income of the company, so focusing on iOS is the really definite option for the Apple.
Apple iOS has crossed its 10 version, now Apple is developing their 11 version of iOS called as iOS 11. Apple releases a new version of iOS each year with some design or feature change, iOS receives the major overhaul in iOS 7 since then there is a little bit of tweaks here and there in the OS. But this year it is expected that Apple may change some design language of the OS with new icons, new features, new interface and much more.
The most expected feature of iOS is the Dark mode which is also expecting to come this time in OS. Apple will also make some under hood changes in the OS so the device will run faster and consumes less battery. Apple is also likely to make some changes to iPad iOS as Apple’s new iPad Pro is still running on the same iOS which is present in other iPad mini or iPad. To leverage the power of Pro, Apple has to bring some more functionality to iOS for Pro user which will be able to make iPad Pro more better than other.
iOS 11 may also introduce new automation features which will make iOS easier to use. Siri will surely get major upgrades as AI war is going all around the tech giants and Siri is also among the AI and first full proof AI from Apple, So some changes into Siri will surely be made.
After the changing name from OS X to macOS Apple made some improvements to entire OS to run faster and made more fluent in using. As macOS didn’t receive significant change since 3 years after OS X Yosemite. Some update to Siri will also make its appearance in this update same as iOS. Apple is trying to make computing experience better and providing changes for the creators, developers and office person.
Apple may also bring support for Apple File System which they introduced in iOS 10.3, Apple File System is really a new file system for the device, as it makes device faster, reduce the unnecessary amount of space and much more. As Apple already made macOS one of the most advanced OS so Apple didn’t have to make much improvement in this OS.
Apple Watch has become the top seller as compared to any smartwatch or fitness watch as around 60% of 2016 shipment was for Apple Watch which shows how popular is Apple’s small device. Apple watchOS 4 will bring some improvement in overall user experience, with new watch faces, new compilations option, and UI tweaks.
watchOS 4 will also receive a default sleep app which will measure your sleep as since the launch of Apple it won’t have any sleep tracking app. Apple just acquired popular Apple Watch and iOS sleep tracking platform Beddit, so it’s clear that sleep tracking is a focus, but whether it will come in the watch OS 4 or not remains to be seen. Apple is also trying to make watchOS 4 faster and smoother for the users.
As tvOS has brings revolution to your TV, now this time tvOS 11 will make Apple TV more powerful, with some changes like powerful Siri control, easy to use interface, improvement in performance, faster user experience and much more. Amazon Prime app will also make its entry in Apple TV at the event as expected, which means that you’ll get much more content to consume. Top request for the user is to include Netflix as TV services as Netflix is one of the popular TV service apps as most users love to watch, so Apple also to introduce this service in Apple TV.
tvOS 11 may also bring support for the commonly requested feature of the Home app, as tvOS supports HomeKit to the dedicated app is necessary for the user. There is currently no Home app to provide support for home accessories.
