Traditionally held in June, WWDC serves as a platform for Apple to showcase upcoming software updates and developer tools.

iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS 15 Lead the Charge

Owners of iPhones, iPads, and Macs can prepare for significant updates this fall. Public releases of iOS 18, iPadOS 18, macOS 15, watchOS 11, and tvOS 18 are expected later in the year, but the beta testing program kicks off next week at WWDC. The focus for these updates appears to be AI, with many features leveraging the power of the Neural Engine coprocessor built into Apple devices.

AI Enhancements and More

According to leaks and rumors, Siri is set for a major upgrade, gaining the ability to summarize information from notifications, messages, and documents. It will also be able to interact with individual app features and complete multi-step requests, similar to features found on competing devices.

The Photos app is expected to receive a Pixel-like Magic Editor, while Spotlight Search will gain the ability to search within apps. While some AI-powered features might be delayed for later updates, users can still look forward to other improvements like customizable widget and icon placement on iPhone desktops, enhanced navigation and search in the Settings app across iPhone and Mac, a redesigned Control Center with HomeKit integration and an improved music player, and, of course, a new set of emoji, notes NIX Solutions.
