What to Expect at Apple’s WWDC 2018 Event

Обновление iPhone заставит пользоваться смартфоном реже

Apple's WWDC 2018 runs June 4-8, 2018, in San Jose, USA. So, we may see the new iOS 12 for iPhones and iPads, macOS 10.14 for Mac computers, watchOS 5 for Apple Watches and tvOS 12 for Apple TVs.

This year, the company will highlight the opposite: using gadgets less.

Rumors suggest that Apple's plans for iOS 12 will make this refresh a bump, not a jump, a fine-tuning that fixes past problems and buffs up the quality of day-to-day use.

The digital wellbeing movement has gone into overdrive in recent months. "We need to get finer-grain language and start to understand that an iPhone is just a refrigerator, it's not the addiction".

The Apple Watch is already considered to be one of the best wearables for monitoring daily health and exercise but it's thought that in-depth sleep tracking could be next for this device. It is also the technology used in Pokemon Go mobile game.

Analysts believe Apple will try to inject more artificial intelligence and other new powers into Siri to make it more competitive with Google's digital assistant and Amazon's Alexa.

Tesla in Autopilot mode crashes into California police vehicle
Tesla has previously told drivers that they shouldn't rely on the system, and that they should stay alert while it's engaged. The officer was not in the police SUV at the time but handling a call for service about 1,000 yards away, Cota said .

At its own developer conference in May, Google emphasized similar tools.

Apple also has said it will be rolling out tools to help users monitor and curb their smartphone usage. Another mode allows objects to be dropped into an area and virtually remain in place. The growth comes as Apple's top-selling product, the iPhone, hasn't been selling as briskly as investors had hoped after last fall's much-anticipated release of the super-premium iPhone X.

Otherwise, upgrades to this year's software will be more muted. More interesting would the rumoured software Apple is said to be working on, such as the phone-to-phone AR experience, improvements to Siri, and a single set of apps for iPhone and Mac.

As always, Apple will be live-streaming the event, so you can catch the event right from your home. It's unknown if they would form the basis of iOS 13 or whether or not Apple could introduce a feature-rich iOS 12 "point" release early in the year.

We could also see a series of more minor announcements, including the ability to temporarily snooze notifications, track changes on the stock market, and even sending Animoji creations over FaceTime communications.

The iOS App Store has been a huge money maker for Apple, and for its developers.
