WWDC 2018 : Here ’ s what to expect from Apple ’ s big event. Apple sent out invites to WWDC (or Worldwide Developers Conference ) this week, confirming the keynote will take place June 4. That’s when Tim Cook will take the stage and announce something new from Apple .

Let’s start with the most obvious stuff first. iOS 12 is expected to be announced today, but it’s mostly going to bring stability and performance improvements, some health and parental control features, a revamped iBooks experience for reading ebooks, and some ways to cut down on how much time you spend on your phone.

We’re also expecting to hear about updates to the NFC functionality in iPhones equipped with the necessary chips, which will allow you to unlock smart locks, hotel rooms, and cars with your mobile device.

A Siri-powered Beats speaker may launch next week – but who wants one?

  A Siri-powered Beats speaker may launch next week – but who wants one? Apple analyst-turned-VC Gene Munster predicts in a post on his seed stage fund Loup Ventures’ site that a Siri-powered smart speaker might be announced at the upcoming WWDC event in Cupertino next week. He added that it would likely cost $250 so as to rival cheaper options with better assistants built in, without competing directly with the $350 Apple HomePod.

Apple ' s World Wide Developer Conference ( WWDC ) kicks off with its traditional keynote on June 4, 2018 .. It' s returning to San Jose, just a short distance from Apple ' s Cupertino home and, unless Apple surprises us with a spring event again, it could just be Apple ' s first keynote of the year.

There’s also been talk about Apple allowing apps to run across macOS and iOS without the need for separate versions of the software, in what’s called Project Marzipan. However, following that leak from the end of December, blogger John Gruber explained last month that Marzipan is more like a declarative control API, and noted that it likely won’t materialize until iOS 13 arrives in 2019. Hopefully Apple will shed some light on the matter today.

Aside from the cross-platform capabilities, macOS is slated to get a new dark mode, support for invoking Siri with a voice command, a desktop app for Apple News, and a refreshed Mac App Store.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Xcode 10 on macOS 10.14. Dark Appearance, Apple News, App Store w/ video previews

macOS update delivers Messages in iCloud

  macOS update delivers Messages in iCloud <p>Don't panic, Mac users — just because Apple only released iOS 11.4 at first doesn't mean it has forgotten about you. The company has posted a macOS High Sierra 10.13.5 update that supports Messages in iCloud, providing both more consistent chat syncing across your Apple-made devices as well as a way to free up space.</p>There aren't other stand-out features in 10.13.5, although it does include the usual host of security and bug fixes. Not that you'll necessarily mind. If you're fully immersed in Apple's ecosystem, this could significantly improve your ability to keep track of a chat as you change devices throughout your day.

On the wearables front, expect to hear about new health and fitness features for watchOS; 9to5Mac notes that Apple’s recent acquisition of Beddit could see the company add sleep tracking capabilities to the Apple Watch.

We’re hoping to see some gadgets too. Last September, Apple promised to release its AirPower wireless charging mat for the iPhone 8, iPhone X, Apple Watch, and an AirPods charging case, at some point in 2018. Well, today is some point in 2018, so do your thing, Cupertino.

The second generation of AirPods may also be unveiled at the event, with better Siri support and said wireless charging case.

Former Apple analyst Gene Munster predicted last week that a $250 Beats speaker might also be announced, in order to expand Apple’s audio lineup without competing directly against the $350 HomePod. As we noted in our coverage, if it’s released, it’ll have to be more than just a pretty little thing on your desk to compete with the wide range of smart speakers on the market today.

We’ve also been hearing about a refresh for the iPhone SE. There’s word on the street about a notch coming to the diminutive handset, but don’t bet on that – or anything related to a new phone until we hear more later in the day.

It’ll be interesting to see what Apple has in store for developers as well. The company’s ARKit framework for developing augmented reality apps and content has largely been used for demonstrating entertainment apps and interior design solutions; if it’s serious about AR, it’ll have to guide developers to go beyond that and create more meaningful tools with its offering.
