Since 1983, the Worldwide Developers Conference has been an important meeting programmers concerned, has now become one of the industry's annual gathering of developers, Apple is likely to release some software upgrades and product developer conference. The annual Worldwide Developers Conference will attract many programmers flocked to the scene to observe and they can learn how to use Apple's tools and techniques, you can also get to know more developers.
What surprise of this year's Worldwide Developers Conference it? We'll see.
Apple CEO Cook will deliver the keynote speech at the opening ceremony.
Cook will be Pacific Time at 10:00 on June 13 at the Bill & middot; Graham Municipal Auditorium keynote speaker for this year's Developers Conference opening.
Last year, Apple did not show any new hardware at the developer conference, but announced its Apple Watch, Xcode developer tool suite and a large number of other software upgrades.
Apple and other major conferences organized by the same company will be broadcast live Cook's keynote.
Apple will explain in detail the contents of the next generation mobile operating system iOS 10's.
iOS 10 system should be some important upgrades. E.g:
Apple may be revised App Store, it is possible to add paid search. It is very reasonable to predict, because Apple in December replaced the App Store supervisor.
iOS system may add some new features on the remote control to match last year's fall release of Apple TV 4.
iOS 10 may also increase a system called & ldquo; Family & rdquo; (Home) new application that helps users to control smart appliances. We expect Apple Music design will be some changes, while also adding some new setting options, allowing users to built-in applications will not be used often hidden.
iOS 10 system also may have Siri upgrades, such as increasing voicemail transcriptions.
Apple's voice assistant Siri may get some new features to further enhance its usefulness.
Siri may be the main topic of this year's Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple may spend a lot of time to introduce its new features.
The recent news that Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in preparation released Siri on an application program interface (API). This means that application developers can integrate their software into the Siri, just as they are now able to integrate their own software such as Amazon's Alexa as in other voice assistant.
Apple may also develop a similar Amazon Echo's voice assistant speaker, but it may just be a set-top box Apple TV upgrade products.
In addition, Apple recently acquired a start-up company called VocalAI, which developed software that allows Siri to respond to more complex questions, such as & ldquo; to find a nearby restaurant, and have free parking and WiFi & rdquo ;.
OS X 10.12 system should give Mac users impressed, this system may be renamed
Apple's desktop operating system, Mac OS X in the & ldquo; X & rdquo; representative of the Roman numeral & ldquo; ten & rdquo;, iOS version number has now risen to 10, in order to avoid confusion, Apple may replace Mac OS X's name .
There are many indications that Apple will be the operating system may be replaced with the name & ldquo; macOS & rdquo ;.
Here are some other changes may be at this year's Apple Worldwide Developers Conference to:
1, Siri might support the Mac platform. Recently leaked online a few screenshots Siri running on the Mac platform is.
2, according to Eddie & middot; library (Eddy Cue) and Clegg & middot; Feidelixi (Craig Federighi) said, iTunes may be some design changes, it will work with Apple Music better together.
3, of course, but also fix some vulnerabilities, and optimize performance. Apple every year around optimizing performance upgrade.
4. Unfortunately, this year, Apple may not show new hardware developer conference. The new MacBook Pro is expected to wait until the fourth quarter will be disclosed, Apple earlier this year launched the latest ultra-thin MacBook.
In last year's Apple Worldwide Developers Conference spent a lot of time to introduce the Apple Watch, it is expected this year as well.
While Apple may borrow Worldwide Developers Conference to release the next generation Apple Watch, but until now there were no reports of any related news or rumors. So we'd better not hold out much hope that this year Apple may only release upgrade software.
If Apple really release Apple Watch Worldwide Developers Conference 2, most industry observers expect that battery life will be the same as the previous generation, but the thickness will reduce a lot than the previous generation.
Apple has also recently requested watchOS developers to develop native applications as soon as possible, so Apple may take some time to discuss Apple Watch standalone application work.
Another pillar of Apple's iCloud service may also be upgraded
Since the Apple iPhone unlock issue with the FBI launched protest, Apple has been adjusting its security team. Its initiatives might see results at the Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple may release upgrade iCloud and other online services at the developer conference.
At least, Apple may increase the minimum common storage iCloud account, or reduce the price of storage space.
Apple Pay may be upgraded to prepare for the next step into the mainstream market
Some time ago there is news that Apple might be Apple Pay integrate their mobile Safari browser to another site.
Users simply enter your credit card information, you can make payments on many websites through Apple Pay, just as easy to use PayPal, which should help to improve the utilization of Apple Pay.
Because Apple Pay partners need to integrate software into their own website, Apple may publish related development tools, and the Worldwide Developers Conference is the best time to release these tools.
Apple's new Apple TV platform may still remain in the & ldquo; non-mainstream & rdquo; state, the apple not announced sales of the product, but it does require interface and software upgrade
Apple is expected to be released some upgrades Apple TV platform in the Worldwide Developers Conference. Apple TV remote control application might be enhanced, including the integration of Siri's content.
Apple also announced some news related with the developer in the developer conference, to encourage more developers to develop applications for the Apple TV and games.
