Apple reveals WWDC schedule; keynote kicks off 10 am PT on June 6th
With Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference scheduled to begin on Monday, June 6th, Apple reminded everyone by posting a teaser that indeed, the annual event is “Swiftly approaching.” The fun and festivities kick off at 10 am PDST (1 pm EDST) and the conference will take place through Friday, June 10th. The event will be held online although a select group of developers will be part of a viewing party inside Apple Park.
During the last two years, the keynote focused on the release of software only but it isn’t clear whether that trend will continue this year. As far as iOS 16 goes, we expect to see larger, customizable widgets supposedly known internally as “InfoShack.” Notifications are supposed to be improved, although it isn’t certain yet what this means. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has mentioned “new ways of interacting” for iOS 16, but we will probably have to wait for the event to see this in action.
WWDC is Swiftly Approaching Apple reminds us
Apple iPadOS 16 might include improvements to the tablet’s multitasking capabilities. One option rumored by Gurman is a “pro mode” for iPadOS that would give users bigger screens to work with. As for watchOS9, Apple will supposedly make some tweaks to its watch faces and add a new power-saving mode that will allow Apple Watch users to continue using apps and features while still saving battery life.
