How to Watch Apple's WWDC 2018 Keynote

How to Watch Apple's WWDC 2018 Keynote

As its name suggests, this is mainly a software event, but we may see some new hardware introduced there.

The Digital Health initiative is interesting, which according to Bloomberg, is a new setting feature that will include a series of tools aimed at showing people how they are using their iPhones and iPads.

iOS 12 could get announced at WWDC 2018 today, and Apple may have a surprise feature for the iPhone and iPad up their sleeves.

Apple could also spill the beans on its new, more powerful MacBook and iPad devices. Stream it live beginning at 1:00 PM ET / 10:00 AM PT and stay tuned to BGR for all the news as it breaks. Remember this will be the first major update since the launch of the iPhone X, which means apart from performance we will see some new functionality and new gestures designed specifically keeping the ergonomics of the flagship in mind.

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

Apple which has been criticised of late for security, quality and battery issues will look to fix these with iOS 12. New additions could include a way to track and set limits for time spent on certain apps.

If there's ever a problem with an Apple product, a class action lawsuit is sure to follow - and it's rarely just one. Recent reports suggest that numerous significant changes have been pushed to iOS 13, but there should still be plenty to make iPhone owners happy, including expanded NFC support and ARKit upgrades.

"We need to have tools and data to allow us to understand how we consume digital media", Tony Fadell, a former senior Apple executive who worked on the original iPhone and iPod, said in a recent interview. The company will outline its software plans for Macs, iPhones, iPads, and much more.

Expect the new dark theme to be a hit with a lot of users.

The biggest expectation for the conference lies within Universal Apps, an update to MacOS that will hopefully provide support for syncing between apps on two operating systems. In any case WWDC 2018 is kicking off tomorrow so hopefully we'll have more details to share then.
