Apple WWDC set to reveal iOS 14
WWDC, Apple’s annual developer conference, is just around the corner – and this year it will be a digital-only event taking place on June 22 at 6 p.m. UK time.
The WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference) is traditionally the event where Apple reveals the details of all its new operating systems, so for this year it’s iOS 14.
The conference is normally held at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, with tickets for $ 1,599 per person. But of course, with a global pandemic bringing big events to an end, this year’s event will be free and streamed live to people who are part of Apple’s developer program, with the main presentation free for everyone to watch. world.
What can I expect from iOS 14?
Apple’s annual reveal of its new iOS attracts almost as much interest as actual iPhone launches. This is not surprising given that the iOS reveals many new features and visual design updates that make the new iPhones exciting.
Some of the new features we are waiting for include:
A new fitness app that will include running, cycling, rowing, weight training, dancing, yoga and lots of activities.
A redesign of iMessages, including the ability to mention specific people in group chats (like in WhatsApp) by putting an “@” before their name.
A new augmented reality app that you can use to easily get product information while you shop.
A dramatically updated home with new ways to organize apps, like a list vs. grid, alphabetically, or by number of unread notifications.
Easy text translation on Safari and throughout iPhone, with the ability to change languages with a quick tap on the screen.
New emojis and updates to Animojis and Memojis.
Interestingly, one of the rumors surrounding the update this year is that it might have a new name – iPhoneOS, since Apple’s tablet now runs on iPadOS.
How can I watch it?
You can watch the WWDC 2020 Keynote on YouTube, the Apple TV app, or just stream it from Apple.com on your browser.
