The annual conference of apple for developers already has a date to happen. The Worldwide Developers Conference, better known as WWDCis scheduled for the days June 5th to 9th, 2023. The event will feature online sessions for professionals, and a performance at Apple Park is scheduled for June 5. The event may have the long-awaited virtual reality headset of the brand, and should bring news about the company’s operating systems, such as iOSO iPadOS and the macOS.
Free to all registered developers on the brand’s platforms, WWDC is aimed at training professionals through sessions, labs and presentations.
For those who are consumers, the focus is on the new software of Apple products. We should see the announcement of iOS 17, iPadOS 17 and macOS 14, as well as news for watchOS and tvOS.
Among the rumors involving iOS 17, we have sideloading apps, alternative stores and browsers with their own rendering engines.
All these changes would be Apple’s response to pressure from regulatory bodies, mainly from the European Union, against what they consider to be a monopoly.
Headset and new Macs may appear at WWDC 2023
The event usually doesn’t bring hardware news, but, on some occasions, Apple breaks this rule. This was the case in 2022, when the company launched the MacBook Air and the 13-inch MacBook Pro with the M2 chip, also announced at the event.
In 2023, who has a chance to appear is the virtual reality headset, which has been developed and speculated for years.
Other guesses include a new Mac Pro — as the two-year deadline to abandon Intel chips is running out — and a 15-inch MacBook Air.
iPhone 15? only in september
Who certainly won’t show up is the iPhone 15. It is traditionally presented at an event of its own, in September.
Among the changes, Dynamic Island should reach all models in the line. A new photo sensor from Sony should improve images in dark environments.
There must also be a replacement desired by many people: the Lightning connector must come out, making room for USB-C, as required by the European Union.
