Apple’s annual developer conference is usually held in early June. It seems boring to the average person, but here they always show samples of what we can expect from updates and new products. As usual, rumors abound before reveal.
DinSide will be in place at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, USA when Tim Cook will deliver his keynote address on Monday, June 5 at 19:00 NST, and will naturally give you a first look at what will be presented.
This may have been thrown around by many
Augmented reality glasses
There are mostly speculations about what is believed to be the company’s first digital glasses. These things have been rumored for years, but Apple has never confirmed their existence.
Unlike pure virtual reality glasses like those from Sony or Facebook / Meta, Apple is said to be betting on a combination of VR and AR – called “mixed reality”.
In practical terms, this means that the glasses will add digital/virtual elements on top of what users see in the real world.
According to rumors, it will look like a pair of goggles, with 8K displays, a set of cameras and an external battery that connects to the glasses with a special cable. The name is called to be Reality Pro.
the edge He writes that Apple should have been working on creating AR/VR versions of many of its apps, such as Safari, FaceTime, Apple TV, Apple Books, Freeform, and so on.
Perhaps the most deterrent is the price. It is claimed to be $3,000, approximately NOK 33,000. Add a few thousand to a possible Norwegian price tag, and then the product is out of the question for the vast majority of us.
Moreover, Apple invited journalists specializing in virtual reality technology, which many take as confirmation of the introduction of the glasses, according to 9to5mac.

The 15-inch MacBook Air
It is also rumored that Apple will introduce a larger version of the MacBook Air with a 15-inch screen. This is rumored to be similar to the current 13-inch version, only with a larger screen, of course.
iOS 17 with new features
Since WWDC is actually a developer conference, there will be a lot of focus on the so-called soft news, that is, software.
Apple will almost certainly introduce the next version of the operating system for the iPhone, iOS 17.
The company has already previewed a new assistant function for the new operating system called “Personal Voice”. In just 15 minutes, the user should be able to create a synthetic voice that sounds like their own. This makes it possible for users affected by, for example, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, to speak in their own personal voice when communicating with friends and family.
Otherwise, knowledgeable people usually write bloomberg That Apple will introduce a new feature that will turn the iPhone lock screen into a smart home when rotated horizontally. The same should also be possible with the iPad. The company also appears to be working on a dock for the iPad that will make it work as a smart display similar to the Google Next Hub Max.
The Wall Street Journal claims that Apple will release a new iPhone journal app in iOS 17. With this, you’ll be able to jot down what you’re thinking and doing during a day. If that’s the case, the company will be competing with third-party apps like Day One and Momento.
At the end of last year, it was reported that Apple would likely comply with the European Union’s Digital Markets Regulation (DMA) with iOS 17. This means, among other things, that the company should not only allow alternative app stores on iPhone, but users can also install applications from the browser.
Apple Watch transformation
A new version of the operating system for the Apple Watch will also be shown off at this year’s WWDC. Much more niche product than iPhone updates, but last month Mark Gurman mentioned in bloomberg WatchOS 10 will give its watches one of the biggest updates since the original release in 2015.
Gurman wrote that there will be “fundamental changes” to the user interface with an emphasis on tools.
The plan is to let users browse through a series of different widgets — to track activity, weather, stock prices, calendar appointments and more — rather than opening them as apps, he wrote in Bloomberg.
Additionally, Apple has toyed with the idea of changing the function of some of the buttons on the Apple Watch. Today, the digital krone is used to navigate to the home screen. With WatchOS 10, it can be used to open widgets instead.
New versions of the Mac operating systems, Apple TV, and HomePod are also expected.
