WWDC runs June 4-8, 2018, in San José, USA. — Apple

Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference, or WWDC, takes place June 4-8, 2018, at the McEnery Convention Center in San José, California.

A few days ahead of the famous event, the only thing known for sure is that Apple will outline the main updates coming to its various operating systems (macOS, iOS, watchOS, tvOS). It's not yet known.

Various new features and functions for macOS 10.14, iOS 12, watchOS 5 and tvOS 12 will be announced at WWDC, so that developers can tailor their upcoming conversations to the future versions of Apple's operating systems. The new features are unlikely to roll out to users before. Reports suggest a new Digital Health tool for iOS 12 could be showcased, while new features that use AR may also be in the spotlight.

Developers and students attending the event will have access to more than 1,000 Apple engineers, giving them the latest details about the various APIs available to them, whether for SiriKit, HomeKit or HealthKit, etc.

Apple could also spill the beans on its new, more powerful MacBook and iPad devices. Intel® Core i7 (Coffee Lake) processors. The firm could, for example, use WWDC to announce the imminent release of new computers. Rumors even suggested that Apple could present a new MacBook Air with a Retina display, 10 years after launching the line, which has barely been updated in almost three years.

As for the iPad, Apple could unveil new devices with the firm's latest A11 processor, already used in the firm's latest iPhone handsets. The new ID was also found in the iPhone X in 2017.

While it's unlikely we'll see a new iPhone at WWDC, the event could be the ideal place for Apple to reveal its eagerly awaited wireless charging system, called AirPower.

The conference will be live on the WWDC website and mobile app.
