It’s not even two weeks now until WWDC16 comes along. It’s the Apple developer gathering that reveals everything new in the company’s software. The big reveal we’re looking out for? iOS 10. iOS X. iOS Twiddles. Whatever it’s supposed to be called, it’s supposedly coming. And in all seriousness, we haven’t seen a completely new software feature for you iPhone or iPad that would seemingly justify turning the dial up to ten.
While we do know that WWDC will take place between June 13 and 17, we have learned that it will start off with a keynote at 10am Pacific or 1pm Eastern on June 13 at the Bill Graham Civic Center in San Francisco.
Making a guess on the big bullet points Cupertino will push, Apple will introduce a made-over Apple Music with a simplified interface, letting developers work with the Siri SDK which includes Mac OS X integration, — these moves signaling that the company will mount a challenge in the assistance hub race — an Apple Watch 2, and iOS 10. That last bit is especially iffy, since we’re looking at racking up the betas for iOS 9.3.3.
We should repeat that WWDC is a developers’ conference. The chance of any hardware debuting at the keynote is slim.
Speaking of Mac OS X, word is that Apple plans on dropping the “X” at the event. Is it making way for an “X” somewhere else? If not, “Y”?
