It’s that time of year again, when Apple product and software creators as well as enthusiasts of the Cupertino-based company have been invited to head out for the annual Worldwide Developers Conference. The event, billed as “WWDC18,” is set to take place from June 4-8, 2018 at the McEnery Convention Center, located in San Jose, California.

What to Expect

People on a budget will be looking forward to Apple potentially revealing lower costing iPad Pro and MacBook Air models that use the same facial recognition system that consumers first gained access to with the iPhone X, noted MacRumors.

It’s expected that the latest version of iOS will have tighter integration with Siri as well as better parental controls to help adults protect their kids. The FaceTime video-calling app is anticipated to include Animojis, so people can use Animoji characters to chat with one another.

Developers from all around the world will have an opportunity to meet with more than 1,000 engineers from Apple during the conference. Apple has scheduled more than 100 design and technical sessions to help developers as they use the company’s latest tools to build upcoming apps.

If you’re working on a project and need help implementing new features available in Apple’s platforms, you can get assistance from engineers at hands-on laboratories at the conference. From resolving coding issues to gaining guidance on project basics, this will be an essential part of the conference that you and your team won’t want to miss.

Anticipating Announcements Across Apple’s Product Lines

Although we won’t know for sure until the event what Apple will actually reveal about its new offerings, a report from MacRumors suggests that industry watchers are predicting a number of announcements at WWDC18, including:

  • iOS 12 (software for portable devices including the iPhone, iPhone and iPad)
  • MacOS 10.14 (the latest version of Apple’s operating system for desktops and laptops)
  • Cross-platform apps that will work in iOS and MacOS
  • tvOS 12 (Apple TV update)
  • watchOS (an update for Apple’s smartwatch)

Catching up With the Details After the Conference is Over

When reviewing notes from the developer conference, as well as pictures and videos that you took of the proceedings with your iPhone, give your hands a break and mount your device in a stylish and functional table stand. The screen will be positioned at your preferred viewing angle, letting you focus on the content instead of the iPhone itself.
