American tech giant Apple has announced that the 2022 Worldwide Developers Conference will be held between June 6th and 10th and streamed online.
According to GSM Arena, there will also be in-person attendance, but to a limited extent. The opening speech will be pre-recorded, but Apple Park at 1 Infinite Loop in Cupertino will open its doors to a limited number of developers.
The developer group can watch the keynote in the company of Apple’s engineers and designers. The lucky few had to apply via an online form earlier in the week, and the company is now sending out invites.
According to the report, all attendees must “follow Apple’s health and safety protocols,” which means presenting a negative COVID-19 test. However, masks are optional. Once inside, they’ll be given a tour of the facilities at Apple Park’s new Developer Center.
Apple is expected to launch new versions of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS at the upcoming WWDC 2022. The company is said to be working on iOS 16 and macOS 13. The new version of iOS 16 is said to bring a new redesign of app icons for Apple apps, camera app improvements, new widgets and updated themes. The update is said to be available for iPhones introduced after the iPhone 6s. Meanwhile, iPadOS 16 will reportedly bring floating app windows, new widgets, and support for video editing tools like Final Cut Pro, Logic Pro, and Xcode.
Recent reports have also indicated that Apple may be unveiling new hardware at the event. The company is said to be working on a new Apple Mac Pro with silicon. It is likely that the company will debut this product at WWDC 2022. The new smaller Mac Pro is expected to have a 40-core CPU and a 128-core GPU. Alongside this, Apple is also expected to launch a new iMac Pro with larger boulders and a new Mac Mini model.
