WWDC 2016 - What to Expect from iOS 10 and OS X 10.12

WWDC

Keynote Speech – June 13th – Bill Graham Civic Auditorium


WWSC, the worldwide developers’ conference of Apple which is held annually is near at hand and we can hope to hear more details on the latest software updates for their products, from iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch, right to Mac and Apple TV. Since 1983, Apple had been hosting developer conference and 2016 tends to be its 27th event. Though several contemplate it as a launchpad for annual software upgrades, past devices inclusive of iPhone 4, Mac Pro and Power Mac had been also been launched there.

Apple had used the keynote, last year to reveal Apple Music, its radio as well as streaming service with some help from stars, Drake and The Weeknd. The keynote speech is said to take place on Monday 13th June at 10am PDT, in the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, San Francisco. Last year, the venue had revealed iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and iPad Pro to the world.

Moreover, events on Tuesday and Wednesday would be held at Moscone West, the neighbouring convention centre that had hosted WWDC in recent years. About 5,000 developers is said to be in attendance for the event.

iOS 10


To watch the live presentation, users could tune in to Apple’s website or through the WWDCiOS app. The Telegraph would be doing live blogging, all through, covering the announcement regarding iOS, OS X, watchOS and tvOS. The major part of the two hour or so performance seems to be devoted to the new version of iOS, the software of Apple for iPhone and iPad.

 iOS 9 had been introduced last year and hence it is expected that iOS 10 would also make an appearance which would probably be accompanied by Craig Federighi, senior vice president of software engineering. Beta version of the software is said to be opened up to developers in June before being rolled out to the general public in autumn when the iPhone 7 would be released.

There have been strangely scarce details regarding the iOS 10, this year though reports indicate digital assistant Siri could be updated to manage voicemails, transcribing them to read without having to ring your inbox and select the message one would want to listen. iOS 10 could be the first time a HomeKit is completely understood and connected home framework of Apple was first release as a part of iOS 8.

OS X 10.12


In recent years, with last year’s offering El Capitan resulting on from Yosemite and Mavericks, Apple had named its Mac software updates after Californian landmarks. While the name of OS X 10.12 tends to be veiled in secret, there seems to be an opportunity where Apple could rebrand the software completely as macOS in position with the other lines.One of the rumours circulating is the possible integration of Siri in OS X enabling you to perform for the first time, voice searches through the laptop or desktop.

The company has apparently been testing varieties of OS X comprising of Siri for the past four years and the new software will have a Siri microphone icon in the Menu bar. This when clicked would introduce a dark background with coloured waves just as it tends to appear across iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch. Inserting Siri in the infrastructure of Mac seems reasonable.

Apple is very clear regarding how it foresees its numerous functioning together cross-platforms and its Continuity umbrella which had been announced at WWDC 2014, comprises of a range of latest features designed as first push to seamless addition between the systems.
