What’s expected from Apple’s WWDC 2018 keynote on June 4th

“Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference kicks off in the Bay Area this Monday,” Samuel Axon writes for Ars Technica. “As always, the company will start the event with a keynote from Apple executives to lay out the company’s software priorities for the coming year—and possibly some hardware priorities, too.”

“The primary focus will be on iOS 12 and macOS 10.14—software for iPhones, iPads, and Macs. Apple will describe many of the new features coming to those platforms,” Axon writes. “This year, we’re not expecting a radical overhaul for any of them. Apple plans to hold major features and redesigns until 2019 so it can focus on stability and performance this year.”

“Apple is usually secretive about what’s coming until the event, but we can fill in some of the blanks with past comments from executives about the company’s strategy and direction, leaks from reliable sources, and more,” Axon writes. “The following is what we might learn at the keynote that starts on Monday, June 4 at 10am PDT (1pm ET).”

• iOS 12
• macOS 10.14
• watchOS 5
• Apple TV and tvOS 12
• Siri
• Mac

MacDailyNews Take: Just keep in mind that it’s a developer conference and anything hardware related would be an unexpected bonus.

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


  1. Developers want hardware as well. They want faster, better, improved hardware to develop for. They want new hardware options to take advantage of. So new hardware would be entirely appropriate. It’s just that it has become entirely safe to expect little in the way of innovative hardware from Apple.

  2. It’ll be something that MDN whines about, Tim Cook isn’t as good as blah blah blah, while he does just fine at keeping things marching forward and making all of us a bunch of money. So keep bitching, mac daily news. It’s not stopping anything.

  3. H – I think MDN is right to whine. Yes, my stock is doing fine right now. Yes, I’m thankful for that. But Apple is skimming from the past. Where are the new ideas and products? Does a car really help me? The Home Pod is no big deal and can’t run stereo. The operating system needs to be fixed. Hardware? What Hardware? Mac Pro delayed. Who knows what’s going to happen with the portable line and the Mini. Home automation is well behind others and there out of the WiFi business to just name a few. Except for the iPhone and Watch, I’ve spent nothing on other products. Really, what’s there to buy?
