Apple is ready to host its annual Worldwide Developers Conference virtually starting June 7. A lot can be expected this year with updates for every Apple software and a lot of rumored hardware.
Free for all developers, WWDC 21 will offer unique insight into the future of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, WatchOS, and tvOS.
Building on the record-breaking participation and learnings from the last year’s conference, WWDC is an opportunity for developers to learn about the new technologies, tools, and frameworks they rely on to build innovative and platform differentiating apps and games.
Mark your calendars for June 7 at 10:30 pm IST to watch this event on Apple’s official YouTube channel, the company’s website, and the Apple TV app
iOS 15 may bring new notification settings, tweaks to the dark mode UI, updates to iMessage, making it more of a social network and competing with WhatsApp.
Speculations include widget support on the entire home screen, making the UI more like a computer.
We could expect Apple’s Pro apps coming to iPadOS following the announcement of an M1-based iPad Pro.
Recent reports suggest that Apple has given Zoom special access to a private Apple API hinting at Center Stage support and other improvements in video calls from Apple’s devices.
Making MacOS work even more effectively and efficiently on Apple’s custom M-series chips (and between all devices) will be the focus of this year’s release. You will also see improved support for iOS apps, but the highlight will be creative and professional apps, testimonies from key developers, and perhaps some more surprises.
New watch faces and additional complications seem inevitable. The update would mainly focus on bringing in more health features to WatchOS and better integration with Fitness+.
We may also be told about swim tracking in the Fitness app. We’ll almost learn more concerning recent studies regarding the watch and heart health and COVID.
The tvOS 15 operating system is expected to come with a design refresh, a fresh new mode for children with advanced content that Apple will add to the Apple TV+ subscription service. The AppStore will also undergo change and will offer a more convenient interface than what exists today.
Multiple rumors suggest the launch of the new Macbook Pro 14″ and the MacBook Pro 16″ with Apple Silicon.
Apple is planning two different chipsets which include eight high-performance cores and two energy efficient cores for a total of 10 but will be offered in either 16 or 32 graphics core variations.

Apple has also been working on a more powerful version of the Mac mini with the same M1x chip as the next MacBook Pro.
Apple is working to make WWDC21 the biggest and the best and is excited to offer developers new tools to support them as they create apps that change the way we live, work, and play.
To contribute to making the best products on the earth and to leaving the world better than we found it.
