What to expect from WWDC 2016?
We are in June which means Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference ( WWDC ) is almost here and this is what we expect to see and not to see in Apple WWDC.
According to the reliable sources, Apple will change the name of the OS X which means your Mac will run MacOS in the future. However, name change is not the only thing that we expect to see on the Macs.
Other new features of the OS X 10.12 ( or should I say MacOS ) will be Siri. Yes, Siri is ( finally ) coming to Macs. You will be able to open Siri either from the menu bar or from its icon on the dock. However, it is not clear whether Siri on the Mac will support the “Hey Siri” feature or not.
TouchID is an important part of the iPhones and iPads and it is coming to the Macs starting with the 2016 MacBook Pro. That is why in WWDC, Apple would start to support TouchID on OS X.
Furthermore, of course, Apple will make OS X more stable and fast as well as more secure.
Apple will also talk about the Apple Music in WWDC. Most important change that they will do on the Apple Music is the UI. Apple Music will get a black and white ( which is, by the way, what Instagram did with the latest update ) more simple UI not only on the iOS but also on the MacOS.
As you would expect, Apple will announce the tenth version of iOS in this conference.
Like the Apple Music, there will be some changes on the design of iOS. If the rumors are true, then we will see more colorful design as well as a new notification panel with iOS. However, the feature that will make most of the people happy is the ability to hide stock Apple apps. Even though we do not know how it will work, still there is a high change for Apple to introduce this feature.
Also, it is expected for iMessage to be updated with the ability to transfer money.
You can think that MacOS and iOS 10 will be in the spotlight of WWDC 2016, but Siri will be. As artificial intelligences start to become more popular ( as well as smarter ) each day, companies try to make an AI. Even though Apple already has Siri, it is not as smart ( and as natural ) as Google Assistant which was introduced in Google I/O. Besides of making Siri better, Apple will also introduce a hardware product ( like Google Home or Amazon Alexa ) which would run Siri.
