Apple has begun sending out invites to their developer conference, which is set to take place on June 5.
The event is still going to be mostly online, and will run from June 5 through June 9. Like last year, Apple will have some developers and press on site for the keynote on June 5. But all of the sessions will be available online.
Apple is already hyping up the event, saying that this is going to be Apple’s “biggest and most exciting yet” in terms of WWDC.
What will Apple announce at WWDC 2023?
Traditionally, Apple shows off the next version of software for each platform. So that would include the big ones like iOS 17, iPadOS 17, watchOS 10, and macOS 14. But we’ll also get tvOS 17. tvOS doesn’t always make it into the keynote, as typically the update is pretty small.
This year, there’s a lot of rumors about hardware that we could see at WWDC. Pro’s are still waiting on the Apple Silicon-powered Mac Pro. Which would make sense to announce at WWDC, and it’s also the only Intel-powered Mac left in its lineup. The previous Mac Pro’s were announced at WWDC, seeing as this is the audience that would buy a Mac Pro, it’s the perfect place.
But there’s even more rumors this year, about other hardware. Specifically, Apple’s mixed reality headset that has been rumored for many years. We’ve heard rumors lately that iOS 17 isn’t going to be a big update this year, primarily because Apple has moved resources from iOS over to xrOS which is rumored to be their mixed reality platform.
Of course, if Apple does announce the headset at WWDC, it wouldn’t be crazy to hear Apple talk about it, and then give us more information in the Fall, with a release date in the Fall too. And since WWDC is still mostly online this year, it makes it seem less likely that it’ll come this time around.
Either way, June 5 is when we’ll see what iOS 17 has in store for us this year.
