Apple’s annual Worldwide Developer Conference, better known as WWDC, is all set to begin in San Francisco on June 13. Apple has begun reaching out to journalists, confirming the event schedules starting at 10am on the day. The keynote address will be held at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, while the rest of the conference’s sessions will take place at the Moscone West convention center.
“WWDC 2016 is going to be a landmark event for developers who are coding in Swift and building apps and products for iOS, OS X, watchOS and tvOS,” Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing, said in a statement released earlier.
The anticipations are high this year, with many speculating to hear about the next version of Apple iPhone OS – iOS 10. iOS 10 is believed to include a redesigned Apple Music app, a Siri SDK for developers, and Apple Pay support for web browsers, allowing Apple Pay to be used to make purchases via Safari much like PayPal. Siri integration to the Mac with a dedicated Siri button available through the menu bar and dock is another prediction for the year.
There are also rumors to hear something exclusive about Apple Watch, Apple TV, and Mac. New Apple MacBook Pro line up with an OLED touch sensitive bar over the keyboard is one among the expected products. The experts also predict seeing new iPhone 7 at WWDC, mainly with updated antenna lines, a dual-camera setup, 32GB base storage model, etc.
In the past years, Apple has made a live stream of its Worldwide Developers Conference keynote available on the web and through the Apple TV, and it is likely to do so again this year.
