Apple WWDC 2018: iOS 12, macOS, Cheaper Macbook Air
Last year’s event was jammed packed with plenty of announcements. Apple had an impressive number of products to introduce, including the HomePod smart speaker, a 10.5-inch iPad Pro, a new iMac Pro, iOS 11 operating system for iPhones and iPads, macOS High Sierra operating system for MacBooks and iMacs, ARKit and watchOS 4. This year, the company is expected to showcase the future of macOS and iOS.
There is a huge possibility of Apple making a reality out of the recently rumoured cheaper MacBooks and iPads. According to a few reports, Apple could unveil its cheapest MacBook yet in the form of a new MacBook Air with a Retina Display. However, the rumour of the launch of new universal apps that work across iPhones, iPads, and Macs still has a big question mark hanging over its head. Business magazine Bloomberg had reported the possible launch of Animoji for FaceTime and iPad apps, last month.
The future of iOS would undeniably a major subject of discussion, with iOS 12 in particular. Apple has been working on enhancing the performance and reliability of iOS 12, according to reports. Several new features have been added and tested for their performance in this particular iOS version, including the rumoured ‘Tabs Within Apps’ feature. However, major software updates for Apple’s tablets are not expected to arrive until next year.
The iOS home screen might get a new design soon. The previews of the upcoming iOS, tvOS, macOS, and, watchOS are also expected to be seen in this year’s developers conference. What are you expecting from Apple at WWDC 2018? Let us know in the comments section below.
