Apple WWDC 2018: Why the announcement of new iPhone software and more is so mysterious

“Apple is about to hold one of its biggest events of the year,” Andrew Griffin writes for The Independent. “But nobody knows quite what it’s for.”

MacDailyNews Take: It’s for developers.

“The company’s Worldwide Developers Conference is one of the highlights of the year, during which it shows off software updates for all of its products,” Griffin writes. “It can sometimes serve as the launch of major hardware products, too – last year’s event saw the release of the HomePod, for instance, and new laptops are often a fixture.”

MacDailyNews Take: Sheesh, Andrew’s going along great so far, huh? The HomPod was announced at WWDC 2017. It did not ship until February 9, 2018 and did not gain a full feature set (stereo pairing, multi-room audio) until May 29, 2018.

“This time around, nobody knows whether such new products are coming,” Griffin writes. “Nobody knows hardly anything about what will arrive.”

MacDailyNews Take: Well, you certainly have no earthly idea, Andy.

Editor: “Hey, Andy, write us an article about Apple’s WWDC so we get those Apple-head clicks!”

Andrew Griffin: “But, I don’t know anything about Apple or this WWDC of which you speak.”

Editor: “I want it online in 10 minutes.”

Andrew: (sigh)

WWDC 2018 focused on software; new Macs, iPad Pros, and Apple Watches with larger displays coming later – May 31, 2018
