APPLE will unveil a number of important new iPhone features during its keynote address at the WWDC conference in California today.
The event, which will also feature a variety of new gadgets, will be streamed live to fans around the world.
How to watch the WWDC keynote live
The Worldwide Developer Conference takes place from 6th to 10th June and starts at 18:00 UK time (13:00 ET) with a big keynote.
Apple is broadcasting Monday’s keynote – in which all important announcements will be made – online for free.
It begins with a speech by Apple CEO Tim Cook.
You can watch WWDC on Apple’s website or Apple’s YouTube channel.
What is the Apple WWDC 2022?
WWDC is Apple’s annual developer conference where app makers gather in large numbers.
Apple also uses the event to make important announcements about its products.
The event usually attracts thousands of visitors, but in 2020 WWDC was purely virtual for the first time.
And the 2021 WWDC event followed with an exclusive online experience.
Apple’s 2022 will also be mostly virtual, but with a special limited-capacity event.
“Apple will host a special day on June 6 for developers and students at Apple Park to join the online community to watch the keynote and State of the Union videos,” Apple said.
“Space will be limited and details on how to apply to participate will be made available shortly on the Apple Developer website and app.”
Apple WWDC 2022 news and rumors – what to expect
Apple hasn’t confirmed exactly what we’ll see at WWDC.
But the event will almost certainly showcase iOS 16.
This is the next major update for our iPhones, introducing a host of new features for free.
We’ll likely see a public beta test of iOS 16 in the weeks following WWDC.
And then the general release of the software will probably come at the end of September along with the launch of the new iPhone 14.
We’ll also hear about new software updates for other major Apple product lines.
These include iPadOS 16 for iPad, macOS 13 for Mac, watchOS 9 for Apple Watch, and tvOS 16 for Apple TV.
There are also reports of a new operating system called homeOS for Apple’s HomePod and HomePod mini smart speakers.
It’s possible that Apple could also use WWDC to announce new products.
This has been the case at WWDC events in the past.
In 2019, Apple introduced the 3rd generation Mac Pro and the Pro Display XDR.
And in 2020, Apple unveiled the big upcoming switch from Intel chips to its own custom processors for Mac products.
There was no new hardware at the 2021 event, but more gadgets could be unveiled in 2022.
For example, we could see an improved version of the recently launched Apple Studio Display.
