On June 5th, Apple will be looking to unveil the next updates to iOS and macOS at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). The latest updates of watchOS and tvOS are also likely to be unveiled at the same event.
According to The Verge, the WWDC is a developer focused event, and Apple has been publishing the need for the new age developers to combine arts with technology. The organization has been saving its hardware revelations to be presented at other shows, thus focusing more on the software part for the WWDC.
The event is going to be held in a different venue, the McEnery Convention Centre in San Jose this year. Generally, it is held at the Moscone Centre in San Francisco, which is currently under renovation for expansions. Reportedly, the McEnery Convention center in San Jose is the original home of the WWDC, hosting the event till 2002.
According to the Mirror, Apple is looking forward to introduce a new version of the Apple TV at some point in time this year. This streaming device is actually capable of playing 4K content. At the WWDC, Apple can show how they are expecting to catch up with Roku and Amazon, the main competitors who are having most of the shares in the streaming market compared to that of Apple.
As per sources, Apple has neglected a number of ideas before shipping the latest version of Apple TV that includes efforts to replace the traditional cable boxes with the streaming device. Apple also might be hit by its latest decision of not shipping the current Apple TV with 4K capabilities in order to preserve its profit margins. In context to this, Apple TV's close competitor Amazon's Fire TV supports 4K video playing and is $60 less than that of Apple TV.
Apple looks forward to live-stream parts of the event through its website and WWDC apps. Other than the technicalities, the key point, as always, will be the largely consumer-influencing presentation of Apple's opening keynote.
