Yes folks! You read it right. After a long held wait from the Google I/O 2016, Apple is finally revealing it’s upcoming plans. Kicking-off on Monday, June 13, 2016, and it all begins at 10am Pacific at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. The bulk of the actual developer sessions will be happening at the nearby Moscone Center.
We already know that we’ll be getting our first looks at new versions of iOS, OS X, watchOS, and tvOS, and a good handful of product from our earlier post, but we have got our hands on some more leaks which we are letting you know down below.
There won’t be much hope for New Hardware – Where Hardware launches are common in WWDC, since Apple moved iPhone launches to the fall in 2011, those announcements have usually centered on the Mac. The Retina MacBook Pro and the Mac Pro design was announced way back 2012 and 2013, after that, Apple has been lazy in the Hardware department and just concentrated on the Software. The rumors suggest the same tend is going to be followed this year.
The hardware that could be announced, are the redesigned MacBook Pros and new Thunderbolt Displays.
The new MacBook Pros might have four USB Type-C and/or Thunderbolt 3 ports instead of one. And a small OLED touch panel above the keyboard is said to take the place of the row of function keys.
The Thunderbolt Display, will have integrated GPU. 4K signal at 60Hz over a single cable might be the specialty of this display.
Swift 3.0 – The language is open source now, and a lot of stuff about Swift 3.0 is in fact already known but stuff regarding this will definitely be announced, and the most meaningful assumption would be that Apple is going using Swift for more of its first-party apps in OS X and/or iOS and thata version of Xcode is coming to iOS.
Service announcements – Apple is going to be tweaking and polishing Apple Music on both iOS and OS X, this we can say for certain. The App Store might get more changes.Actually, Apple Music, Apple Pay, the App Store, and iCloud could all get some attention.
