The Worldwide Developer Conference, WWDC19, hosted by Apple, will take place in San Jose, California, starting from today. Many fans are looking forward to announcements related to the most popular products made by Apple, from the famous iPhone line to the next iMac.
Below you can find a selection of the most anticipated announcements, divided into categories for your convenience.
Possible Announcements During The WWDC19
Many sources claim that Apple is hard at work on a dedicated app for the popular wearable. The move would increase the autonomy of the device, since users will have the option to download apps directly on the watch, without the need to use an iPhone.
New apps may also make an appearance, and among them, we can count a calculator and voice memo app. Select voices believe that an app for tracking the menstrual cycle will also be available.
Apple has strived market the iPad as a great laptop replacement, but many potential customers aren’t impressed by the capabilities of the current iOS as a productivity-focused operating system. A selection of new features in iOS 13 aims to change their mind, with the most anticipated ones being improved multitasking capabilities.
iTunes will meet its inevitable demise
iTunes may be credited as one of the first online markets for digital content, but the aging solution has reached the end of its lifecycle. Apple’s decision to launch standalone apps for media content, including music, TV, and podcasts, proves that the service will be discontinued.
The social media accounts for iTunes were purged, a clue which reinforces the belief that the end is near.
Universal apps for iOS and macOS
In 2018, Apple released standalone versions of favorite apps like Apple News, Voice Memos, Stocks, and Home. Developers may gain the ability to develop universal apps which could work without issues across iOS and macOS.
It is thought that several apps will be renovated, and many are looking forward to a refreshed Files app.
It remains to be seen how many of these rumors will be confirmed during the upcoming WWDC19 event which will start today at 10 AM PDT.
