Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of global marketing, also said in an official statement:

WWDC is a very important event. Thousands of the most creative and dedicated developers and more than 1,000 Apple engineers gathered at the conference to witness innovation and exchange learning. We are all very keen to create exciting experiences for the world, and we can't wait to share the next story with you.

So, for this WWDC, what are the "stories" worth looking forward to?

First of all, it must be Apple's major systems that attract much attention.

IOS 13

According to Bloomberg, iOS 13 is codenamed Yukon. Generally speaking, the focus of this version is still to improve the stability of the system and the fluency of the device. UI will not change much. The new system will also introduce "dark mode" to reduce it.IPhoneOfOLEDScreen power consumption; in addition, the gesture keyboard under test may also appear in this WWDC.

In detail, iOS 13 has made innovations and improvements to many of the system's own applications, such as health, screen control, reminders, maps, email, home, etc.

Healthy

The new system's "Healthy" application will better record users'daily activities. The new "Hearing Healthy" function can detect the volume of music in users' headphones and the noise level of the external environment.

Screen control

Screen control will add a new function to make it easier for parents to control their children's equipment better. In the specified time, such as at night, except for parents, the children's equipment can not contact others.

Reminder

The updated interface will display multiple to-do lists: today's tasks, all tasks, planned tasks and tagged tasks; each type of task will be classified by different colors to improve the user's execution efficiency.

Map

Updated maps can record frequently visited locations, such as homes or companies, and users can add photos to these locations.

In addition to the above improvements, some are aimed atIPadThe update is also worth looking forward to.

According to Federico Viticci, editor-in-chief of MacStories, the iPad Pro is expected to gain mouse support, which was later confirmed by Steve Troughton-Smith, a longtime Apple developer.

CNET, the foreign media, believes that one of the main reasons for Apple's move is Marzipan, because the project allows developers to port iOS applications to Macs, so many applications need to be adjusted to be mouse-compatible.

In addition, the multitasking interface of the iPad and the home screen interface will be adjusted.

MacOS 10.15

Marzipan

According to Bloomberg, Apple is working on a project called Marzipan to integrate iOS applications into macOS. At this year's WWDC conference, Apple may provide developers with a new software development toolkit to help them first move applications on the iPad to macOS.

This shift means that Apple is trying to streamline its application ecosystem, and that the burden on programmers will be lightened because they don't have to write the underlying software code twice more.

Over the next two years, the project will continue until the applications of the iPhone, iPad and Mac are integrated into applications that can be used on iOS and macOS.

Application aspect

Apps like Apple Music, Podcast, iBooks and other iOS features, such as screen time, reminders, special effects in Messages and stickers, will all appear in macOS 10.15.

External Screen Extension

The new system will probably build in the functionality of a third-party application, Duet Display or Luna Display, which uses the iPad as an extended screen for the Mac. Users can get and view Mac notifications directly on the iPad, and also support the input of Apple Pencil.

WatchOS 6

At present, if we want to install new applications on Apple Watch, the only way is to download them through the App Store on the iPhone. However, this may change.

Apple is said to be trying to integrate the App Store into Apple Watch, so users can download applications at any time to make the device more independent; in addition, some new applications will be pre-installed in the system, including voice memo, Apple Book (audio book), health functions (medication reminders and periodic records).

Mac Pro

Although WWDC is usually software-centric, according to foreign media reports, Apple has been considering introducing a new version of Mac Pro desktop computers. To this end, Apple has also prepared a new display code named J290 to support high dynamic range display.

Tom Boger, Senior Director of Hardware Marketing at Ma c, said in an interview with TechCrunch last year:

We want to communicate transparently and openly with our professional community, so we want you to know that Mac Pro is a product in 2019, not this year.

For Apple, this year's WWDC may be the best time to launch Mac Pro.

Summary

As in previous years, system updates are still a major part of WWDC. However, it is worth mentioning that this year is the 30th WWDC, and WWDC is the company's largest annual event, presumably this year's WWDC will present many surprises.

The content mentioned in this article is the prediction and expectation of the WWDC by various media. The specific situation will not be revealed until the conference is held. Let's wait and see now.
