What to expect from Apple WWDC 2020

Compared to last year, it's a few weeks late but Apple's WWDC is here – this is the second biggest event in Apple 's calendar and it's all about updated versions of OS and new releases of Mac. Here's what's to come (we think).

iOS 14

iOS 14 – in addition, this could be called "iPhoneOS" to suit the "iPadOS" tablet – is supposed to update the look of the home screen. This will enable display of the List with various sorting and filtering methods ( e.g. first applications with unread notifications).

The new version may also enable widgets on your home screen. These are apparently distinct from the widgets currently available at the notification centre. There's talk of wallpaper packs from third parties, too.

iMessage can develop a note method, e.g. by utilizing @john to alert a single user in a community chat (even though the conversation is muted). Many speculated features for the latest version include texting signs, the ability to remove sent messages and an option to label a message as "unread."

Safari is adding an advanced translation functionality, the Podcast app will be modified with a Tailored Tips section for you, and iOS 14 will even introduce a new AR device (Apple is allegedly working on a secret AR / VR headset).

Apple is taking its fitness offers to a new standard. It will provide guided workouts that can be downloaded to your iPhone , iPad, Apple Watch or Apple TV.

Third-party Default applications could be the greatest game-changer with all modern technologies – hopefully, you'll be able to adjust can application opens links from e.g. addresses, the music device, the mail client, etc.

watchOS 7

The Apple Watch on its own home screen should get a fresh new feel. Rumors claim you'll be able to create watch faces from photos, use country flags or the new watch face of "Infograph Pro," which will feature a tachymeter. The new OS would also require users to share their watch face settings with one another.

WatchOS 7 will add support for blood-oxygen tracking (aka SpO2) to get going with the new focus on fitness. However, it's not clear which models Apple Watch will support it. The control center is designed to provide a sleep cycle change.

The latest update is also supposed to include parental control functionality that will enable parents to access the child's watch via their devices. School time can restrict the amount of applications accessible at specific hours.

iMac and Mac OS 10.16

WWDC last year put in a new Mac Pro, this year might be concentrating on a new iMac. It will feature iPad Pro-like architecture, an AMD Navi GPU, and a protection chip from T2. This officially removes the fusion drive (in favour of an all-SSD solution).

Apple would almost definitely release MacOS 10.16, but we are practically uncertain of this.

ARM-powered Macs?

This decision has been rumored for about as long as Apple has had its own chipsets designed. We certainly won't see a final device, but Cupertino 's team is likely to reveal plans for upcoming ARM-powered Macs.

Also, this rumor has come and gone too many times because Apple has managed to use Intel CPUs, and there's a dose of caution right here.


Be on the lookout for AirPods over-the-ear and a "new" variant of the AirPods Pro platform.

It is expected that Apple AirTags will take advantage of new Bluetooth technology supported in Apple's latest hardware that enables the phone to detect direction, not just the distance to the tag.

Many rumours say that Apple is about to release the HomePod 2 and a latest Apple TV (there will probably be a new edition of tvOS). The long-forgotten Airpower rising be brought back from the dead as new reports say it operated with the Apple Watch by Apple.
