IOS 12 for iPhone and iPad: Everything you need to know

Share

The developer get-together begins on Monday, but what's it all about, and what's likely to be announced? The WWDC 2018 keynote will be "all about software", Cook has declared, and invited on stage Craig Federighi, the head of software development for Apple.

If the universal app support rumours between Apple computer and mobile systems are true, developers will only need to write one app for both platforms instead of re-writing the code for another.

As for when the event will start, WWDC 2018 is scheduled to take place today, Monday, June 4. For Apple Watch users who want to listen to non-Apple Music tunes the same is true to a lesser degree. Now Apple typically tries to keep WWDC limited to software-related announcements as much as possible, but from time to time they do announce new hardware or refreshes to existing hardware. It is also worth noting that the previous iOS 11 was somewhat flooded with issues, therefore, the users of iOS will probably get to see more reliability and performance in the latest iteration of the iOS, as told by Axios. Reports over the weekend claimed the new version has a new a systemwide dark mode and a new Mac News app icon.

Interestingly, there's also a chance Apple will be introducing a way for users to manage their iPhone use, according to a Bloomberg report. Apple itself is staying tight-lipped for the time being.

Playing for Spain was never something I considered, says Messi
The VAR system will be rolled out for the first time at a World Cup at the June 14 to July 15 tournament in Russian Federation . I would like to do that for at least six months, but you never know what will happen".

These "digital health" tools will break down the time spent using the phone and its individual apps. If this sounds familiar, it should - Google is already doing that with Android P. This is part of Apple's plan to make a video equivalent of its Apple Music offering, which Macworld suggests is confirmed by recent appointments of TV and film experts to its executive, as well as previous promises to invest heavily in its own content.

This year the focus is expected to be primarily on emerging tech like artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and virtual reality.

At the very least, the company needs to introduce some functionality to third-party music services through SiriKit that opens up voice commands to play specific songs and user playlists while leaving premium functionality for Apple Music where users can say stuff like "play more songs like this", and "play something I'd like", etc., etc.
