Apple is set to hold its biggest software event of the year, WWDC, in the middle of June. It'll use the San Francisco event to show off all of the software that's on its way to your Watch, phone and other computers – as well as potentially new Apple devices. The event comes at a big time for Apple. The company is fresh off the back of its first quarter of decline since the iPhone came out, and is feeling the heat from other companies like Google. It will intend to use WWDC as a way of showcasing the software and potentially other products that it hopes will prove its doubters wrong and get the company to grow again.
Apple is expected to reveal new products and give the public a glimpse of the iOS 11 update during the Worldwide Developers Conference. WWDC will take place from June 5-9 in San Jose, Calif., with the keynote address at 1 P.M. EST Monday. You can watch the event live stream using this link on your MacBook, iPad, iPhone or a PC with Microsoft Edge on Windows 10. You can also watch the keynote address on the Apple TV (second and third generation). Here's what could be announced at WWDC: Apple could give a preview of some features that will be on iOS 11, the upcoming update for iPads and iPhones which is expected to be released this fall alongside the iPhone 8, iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus.
With sales of Apple's flagship iPhone slowing, the spotlight is on the company's hunt for its next big thing. Apple's annual software developers conference, which opens in San Francisco on Monday, will be its next big opportunity to show the world what is coming next. Artificial intelligence, and Apple's wisecracking digital assistant Siri, could play a big role. Of course, Apple is expected to unveil a number of other advances - software improvements for its iPhones, iPads and Mac computers and a possible overhaul of its music service chief among them. After Apple's dust-up with the FBI earlier this year over iPhone security, it might also announce new security measures to protect users' data.
The dates for Apple's developers' conference have been revealed by none other than Siri Apple is known for announcing new hardware and software by taking to the stage and giving its creations the star treatment. The iPhone, iPod and iPad were revealed this way, new versions of Mac and iOS software were revealed this way and, most recently, the iPhone SE was revealed this way. Every June, the tech giant introduces software improvements for its various products and this June is no different. Unfortunately for Apple, Siri just spilled the beans on where and when that presentation will take place: Apple's Worldwide Developers' Conference (WWDC) 2016 will take place June 13-17 in San Francisco. The WWDC keynote always takes place the first day of the conference.
SAN FRANCISCO – Apple is working to make its iPhone and other gadgets smarter, responding to competitors' recent moves by building more artificial intelligence into its Siri digital assistant, photos, maps and other online services. The tech giant kicked off its annual software conference by announcing new software features for the Apple Watch and Apple TV, as well, while unveiling a new design for the Apple Music service. It's also extending Apple Pay to the web, so users can pay for purchases made on their Mac computers using the fingerprint authorization on their iPhone or Apple Watch. Most of these new features won't arrive until this fall. At a time when sales of its flagship iPhone are slowing, Apple seemed determined to show that it can make its gadgets indispensable, or at least as useful as its competitors' products.
