Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conferences (WWDC) is slated for Monday, 22nd June. However, due to the pandemic, the event will be rather unusual. 

Apple will go digital for this year’s conference. The first look of the iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS are highly anticipated along with various other software pursuits of the hardware store.

If rumors are to be believed, Apple is going to announce a shift from Intel-based processors to custom-designed ARM chips for its Mac desktops and laptops. This transformation is fundamental and will dictate the future of Apple distinctly. Spotify, Epic Games and Match Group have spoken about the policies of Apple quite candidly in the recent time; so if any changes are forthcoming, they will be announced on this platform.

Here are our predictions:

IOS 14

The main focus is obviously going to be the regular iOS update despite the fact that the early preview has started soft whispers already. Furthermore, rumors are circulating that Apple might be changing the iOS home screen like the new list view which as per the leaked information has the potential to offer an Android-esque view of all the apps. Also, some people are suggesting Apple might be bringing proper home screen widgets to iOS – it will be interesting as the company has refused to adopt this setup for ages.


The rumors around iPadOS keep increasing and are mostly centered on Apple Pencil. Basically, MacRumors has claimed that Apple will be adding a PencilKit feature that will allow handwritten words to be converted into standard text. Some sources have added that the mouse support that was originally attached with the release of iOS 14 might see the light of the day at this conference.


We’re all aware that a new Apple Watch is coming this fall, so we’re placing our bets whether or not Apple would use this platform to give confirmation on the matter. It’s possible that they might hold off the news given the addition of the sleep tracking feature. Some sources even give the impression that a blood oxygen tracking feature might be in the cards.


Since tvOS has both Apple TV and the HomePod options, it is expected that more developments might drop in the conference. A Fitness App is expected to make its debut with iOS 14, and Apple is also working on a Kids Mode that would monitor the time spent watching TV.

According to Bloomberg, HomePod might give the option of Spotify through the use of Apple’s Siri voice assistant.


Although Apple has ignored iMAC in recent years, this year is expected to be different. Apparently, we might see a new desktop design and the display could get expanded to 23 inches to give a Pro Display XDR vibe.


And the final prediction for this year’s conference is that a new Apple TV model might pave its way. Although the update might not be revolutionary in any sense, it will increase the standards and double the storage size. A much-improved processor is also expected.
