This year’s installment of Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) is set to kick off on Monday and will run through Friday.
The multi-day event has historically focused largely on software developments, and this year will be no different. Apple is expected to introduce iOS and iPadOS 16, watchOS 9, macOS 13, and tvOS 16 at the event, along with all the goodies they bring.
There were whispers of the company planning to unveil its long-rumoured AR/VR headset at the Conference, but those have been all but debunked.
Apple’s mixed-reality headset isn’t expected to start shipping until sometime next year, apparently. However, WWDC may bring some breadcrumbs to — or a full-blown announcement of — “realityOS,” the operating system that Apple’s headset will run, judging by details found within recent trademark filings.
The event may not be completely devoid of hardware announcements, though. Renowned Apple analyst Mark Gurman said on Sunday that the Cupertino, California-based tech giant might show off a redesigned MacBook Air with a next-generation M2 chip under the hood at WWDC.
This year, WWDC will feature an in-person component for the first time in two years, with hundreds of developers, members of the press, and students invited to Apple Park for the event.
Apple’s WWDC 2022 keynote starts Monday, June 6 at 1 PM ET/10 AM PT. You can tune into a live stream of the event on Apple’s website, YouTube, Apple TV, and the company’s Twitter. WWDC will continue throughout the week and conclude on Friday, June 10.
On Sunday, Apple shared this overview for developers, summarizing WWDC events for the upcoming week.
