Apple has finally issued its trademark ‘call to code’ for developers and engineers around the world to gather at the 2022 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), where a few exciting upgrades are on the cards.
2022 WWDC: Here’s what to expect this year
For the past two years, the anticipated developer meet-up had been virtual, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, and it seems this time around, Apple will maintain caution at the 2022 WWDC.
Albeit, a fraternity of coding wizards were sent personal invites to a limited access viewing of the conference, which will be hosted at Apple Park.
The 2022 WWDC event kicks off on 6 June 2022 and runs until 10 June 2022, and some of the activities expected include:
- peer-to-peer engineering sessions;
- one-on-one lab appointments; and
- among others, Apple Developer Forums.
“In addition to the online conference, Apple will host a special day for developers and students at Apple Park on June 6 to watch the keynote and Platforms State of the Union videos together, along with the online community,” Apple wrote in their announcement.
General fans of the tech giant will be tuned in for teasers on the next big move Apple has in the pipeline. Well, don’t fret because according to tech pundits tapped into intelligence within the iPhone developer’s network suggest that from a software perspective, a lot of exciting developments are in store.
Here’s what to expect:
- iOS 16 – interface tweaks, notifications overhaul, Health app improvements, Apple Pay adjustments
- iPadOS 16 – possible multitasking interface overhaul
- watch0S 9 – power saving mode, upgrades on atrial fibrillation detection, added workout types and metrics.
- Mac Pro launch (not confirmed)
- AR/VR headset launch (not confirmed)
The event will be live-streamed on Apple channels. Check back later for more information on how to tune into the 2022 WWDC event in South Africa.
