The launch will also take place in San Jose, California, where more than 5000 developers will travel to San Jose from all over the world for the most high-profile developer conference of the year. Tim Cook (Tim Cook), Apple's chief executive, and other executives will deliver this year's keynote speech, announcing Apple operating system updates and a range of new app features.
iOS 13: The main character of the thunder
From the screenshots of previous exposures, the updates in iOS 13 are expected to include and are not limited to the following features:
● Dark ModeWill be a system-level feature of the new iOS. Known changes include the Dock bar and some native apps, which can be toggled by the user in the Control Center. It is worth noting becauseOLEDThe screen feature, when displaying black, can directly turn off the pixels in the black area to achieve almost pure black effect, so the dark mode on the OLED screen is not only "blacker" but also more power efficient.
Suspected iOS13 interface exposure
At the same time, iOS13 improves and updates the applications that come with many systems: health, screen controls, reminders, maps, emails, and homes.
● Health: The new system's "health" app will better record the user's daily activities, and the new "Hearing Health" feature can detect the volume of music in the user's headset and the noise level of the external environment.
● Screen control:Screen control adds a new feature that allows parents to better control their child's device. During the specified time, such as at night, the child's device cannot contact other people except the parent. In addition, on iOS 13, Apple is expected to further strengthen the "meditation mode", reduceMobile phoneOccupy the user's time.
Suspected iOS13 interface exposure
● Reminder:The updated interface will display multiple to-do lists: today's tasks, all tasks, scheduled tasks, and tagged tasks; each type of task will be categorized by different colors to improve user execution efficiency.
● Map:The updated maps record where users frequently visit, such as homes or businesses, and users can add photos to those locations.
In addition to iOS 13, macOS 10.15 is another major upgrade system, and this year its upgrade direction is "fusion." According to a previous report by Bloomberg, Apple has a plan called "Marzipan" to open up the development and application between macOS and iOS. Apple will provide developers with new software development kits for developers who want to develop macOS andiPadThe developer of the application does not have to write two versions of the underlying code of the software. This integration plan is expected to be included in the iPhone next year.
Outside of development, the established update is a migration, and Apple may bring "highly restored" iOS native apps such as podcasts, Find My, screen time, shortcuts to Siri, new reminder apps, and Apple Books to macOS. .
Its role is to fully integrate macOS and iOS applications, which means that the iPad app will run on Mac devices, which also means that macos and iOS App Store will be unified. However, the premise of this is that apps on Mac and iOS devices already share the underlying code. After this revision, it means that Mac will use Apple's self-developed chip, which is equipped with Apple A series processor.
In other respects, apps such as screen usage time on SiOS, Siri shortcuts, and blogs on the iPad will all be ported to the new macOS 10.15.
watchOS 6 will make Apple Watch more independentiPhonepresence. There is even news that Apple will either develop a new App Store separately, adding a voice memo application that can be recorded separately using Apple Watch, as well as Apple Books and Calculator apps. In addition, Animoji and Memoji expressions are expected to appear on Watch OS.
In March of this year, Apple held a special conference to announce a series of announcements.softwareServices, including subscription services such as Apple News+, Apple TV+, and Apple Arcade. As a result, how Apple TV and Apple tvOS hosting Apple Video Services will make changes to the new Apple TV+ service may also be one of the highlights of this WWDC, as Cook has said earlier: "Apple will not launch the company. It is not a hobby to think of a meaningless service, and revealed that there will be further information about the service at WWDC.
iPad designed to replace laptops
For years, Apple has been trying to make the iPad a replacement for laptops. However, many professional users have noticed that although the hardware of the iPad is already powerful enough, the software is still relatively backward. WWDC will showcase new initiatives to bridge this gap. The company plans to improve the home screen and help the iPad meet more computing needs of users by focusing on new features that use multiple applications simultaneously.
Apple is also ensuring that its core applications meet harmonized standards, and the company is preparing major improvements to reminders and health applications, as well as adjusting their own applications such as maps, information, books, homes, and mail. It also plans to merge "find iPhone" and "find friends" into one application.
Since entering the augmented reality field in 2017, Apple has added new augmented reality features to its iPhone and iPad software every year. But before Apple introduced augmented reality glasses, the technology that overlays 3D digital images into the real world is unlikely to succeed. First, this augmented reality device may require an iPhone to perform certain functions. According to people familiar with the matter, the internal version of iOS 13 has begun to add technology to support future augmented reality devices. Apple seems unlikely to openly discuss the issue at WWDC, but these moves indicate that the company is accelerating the development of this device, which may be publicly displayed as early as 2020.
The end of iTunes
For nearly 20 years, iTunes has been an Apple user listening to music, watching movies andTVThe main way to program, listen to podcasts and manage devices. This year, Apple is finally ready to enter a new era. Apple introduced three new Mac apps -- music, TV and podcasts -- to replace iTunes. This is in line with Apple's media application strategy on the iPhone and iPad. In the absence of iTunes, users can manage their Apple products through the music app.
Healthcare has become an essential part of many Apple products. This year, in addition to changes in the iPhone's health applications, the company will also focus on monitoring hearing health, such as detecting how much external noise the user is in, and how loud the user's device or headset is. The company also plans to conduct a more comprehensive menstrual cycle tracking on the iPhone and develop two health applications for Apple Watch: menstrual cycle tracking and birth control reminders. Apple's mobile devices will also add new sleep modes, and their support for hearing aids will also improve.
