While iPhone 14 launch is the most important thing on the minds of fans, there are many other major roll outs expected much before that- software updates, that is. Apple has revealed the 2022 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) date. The event will take place between June 6 and June 10. The event will be live streamed online and there will also be in-person attendance, but only a limited number of people will be allowed. All the attendees will be required to follow Apple’s health and safety protocols including a negative COVID-19 test report. This year, the Cupertino based tech giant is likely to announce updates to the five big Apple operating systems from iOS 16 to macOS 13. Check out all the software updates that are expected to be announced during Apple’s 2022 WWDC
Software launches expected during Apple’s 2022 WWDC
The launch of iOS 16 update will be the major highlight of the event because of the sheer number of iPhone owners across the globe. All iPhone users who hold an iPhone like iPhone 7 or later that could support iOS 16 will get to install the new version of iOS when it’s released in the autumn of 2022. iOS 16 will be announced at WWDC 2022, and then rolled out for beta testers (registered app developers only) immediately after the keynote. The iOS 16.0 will be released for all probably in September.
Accompanying the iOS 16, iPadOS 16 is also likely to be announced during the event. It is speculated to incorporate most of the new features of iOS 16 but adapted to a larger-screen interface.
Well! Apple will also reveal what’s in store for its follow-up to Monterey at WWDC 2022. And it is expected to be macOS version 13.0. Though Apple relied on a single version of Monterey for 18 years, from macOS 10.0 (Cheetah) in 2001 to macOS 10.15 (Catalina) in 2019. However, with the last two releases – macOS 11 Big Sur and macOS 12 Monterey, the arrival of macOS 13 can be expected this year.
That’s not all, Apple will also release software updates for its Apple Watch as well as Apple TV during its upcoming event. While watchOS 9 is likely to be rolled out for Apple Watch series 4 and above, tvOS 16 update and a new branded homeOS will be unveiled for Apple TVand HomePod and HomePod mini respectively.
