Remarkably few rumors about Apple’s WWDC

Apple will unveil its latest software at the WWDC virtual developer conference tonight: tvOS in addition to iOS and iPadOS and macOS. What will be announced this time has been kept pretty secret. But it is also possible that the new system versions do not have much new to offer.

It is becoming increasingly difficult for Apple to add anything new to the software for Macs, iPads and iPhones. New hardware developments such as 5G and subsequent WiFi versions do not change the user experience much. The best thing Apple can do is make minor tweaks. The few rumors around iOS/iPadOS 15 also seem to indicate that.

Reportedly, Apple wants to change the home screen for the iPhone and iPad, but probably less radically than is suggested left and right. With the iPad, widgets, small applications from apps, could now be placed anywhere on the screen.

The user also gets more setting options for notifications. At the moment you only have the option to keep all notifications silent and you can indicate per app how the notifications are sent to the device, but not per situation (during sleep or driving for example).

Apple would also adjust the lock screen and control panel, sources report. There would also be a new menu where you can see which apps collect data about you.

Apple would also make changes to iMessage and the Messages app. iMessage should become even more of a competitor to WhatsApp and will probably get more functions.

Users have been pushing for more multitasking capabilities for the iPad, the addition of a calculator app and a Weather app for the iPad, and support for multiple accounts for some time now. Whether those requests are fulfilled remains to be seen. According to Bloomberg, multitasking will soon be better supported.

Even less is known about macOS 12. There has been speculation about the name in recent days, with Monterey being the most obvious. Apple has already made a drastic change with the completely new design in macOS Big Sur. According to Bloomberg, it will be a very modest update.

It’s also possible that tonight we’ll hear about an overarching operating system called homeOS. This platform is mentioned in a vacancy.

Bloomberg previously reported that Apple has merged the teams working on the HomePod and Apple TV. In addition, for a year, the HomePod software has also been based on tvOS, instead of iOS.

In the past, Apple has also announced new hardware at WWDC. According to Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives, Apple will announce two new MacBooks at WWDC, a new 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro.

From keynote from Tim Cook and others starts tonight at 7 p.m. Dutch time.
