Apple WWDC 2018: How to watch the keynote address

IT

We're live at Apple's (AAPL) Worldwide Developers Conference in attractive San Jose, California. Fortunately the stream does start before the good stuff begins, so you have plenty of time to switch if Apple is screwing with us and neither browser actually works.

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

It's nearly a certainty that Apple will provide updates on new software at WWDC. Instead they could be pushed over to iOS 13 update. Currently, NFC can only be used for Apple Pay. A Digital Health feature may be unveiled too give users more information about the time they spend on their phones.

If rumours are anything to be believed, Apple will also look to announce similar features to its iOS 12 as the company looks to help their users stare for a lesser time on their iPhones and iPads. (AAPL) engineers, consultations with app experts and the annual Apple Design Awards.

According to Apple, 81 percent of the billion iOS devices available in the wild are on the latest release.

The benchmark results suggest that the MacBook is running macOS 10.13.4 as its operating system, and that it will come with 32GB of DDR4 RAM. There's even a new Shortcuts app to help you to manage all of your Shortcuts. This year also the company is expected to launch newer versions of iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS. While macOS supports dark theme now, it only applies the changes to the menubar and the dock. The growth comes as Apple's top-selling product, the iPhone, hasn't been selling as briskly as investors had hoped after last fall's much-anticipated release of the super-premium iPhone X. The company is expected to launch the next version of its iOS operating system, iOS12, new MacBooks and cheaper variant of HomePod. The public beta could be out earlier in June or July for those who wish to test it out.

It's expected to include big updates to ARKit, the framework the company released past year to help developers build augmented-reality apps. The WWDC also includes announcements relating to the latest in software and hardware apart from developer-centric features. We're expecting some big changes to iOS, macOS, Siri and more.

iOS12 is expected to be announced today.

Stay tuned for the latest tech updates.
