WWDC 2024: what can you expect?

At WWDC 2024, Apple is expected to announce the latest version of its operating systems, including iOS 18, iPadOS 18, watchOS 11 and visionOS 2. A few leaks have given us an idea of ​​what to expect from iOS 18. According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, iOS 18 will be the “most ambitious overhaul” of the iPhone operating system in history.

iOS 18 is rumored to include a number of Siri and AI-related features iPhone. Generative AI will be a big focus this time around, with AI-related features being added to Siri, Spotlight, Shortcuts, Apple Music, Messages, and Apple’s iWork apps. Apart from that, iOS 18 will reportedly be more customizable, allowing users to place app icons anywhere on the home screen instead of next to each other. New Apple Maps features and the introduction of RCS support in Messages are also expected for the first time.

There aren’t many leaks about macOS 15, but it’s likely that Apple will add the same AI features to Apple Silicon Macs. In addition to the new macOS and iOS 18, Apple is expected to unveil watchOS 11, tvOS 18, iPadOS 18, HomePod Software 18 and visionOS 2. However, there are currently no details or leaks available about these updates.

What about new hardware products? Last year Apple unveiled the 15-inch MacBook Air M2 and the Vision Pro headset at WWDC. However, the 15-inch MacBook Air only recently came out upgraded to M3, and there is no talk of a new headset either. It’s unlikely we’ll see any new hardware updates at WWDC, but Apple has yet to update the Mac Studio, Mac mini and Mac Pro with the latest Apple Silicon chipset, so there’s a possibility we’ll see something along those lines.

Overall, WWDC 2024 may just be about new software releases and AI announcements. Do you think Apple has any surprises in store for us this year? Let us know in the comments below!
