NEWEST FIRSTOLDEST FIRST
(3) NEW UPDATES

There’s a lot expected at this year’s Apple developers’ conference, especially on the software front with the introduction of iOS 12. Apple has faced a lot of flack over the past few months due to the inconsistencies and problems that surfaced in iOS 11. iOS 12 is expected to address these problems.

More on the OS front could see Apple roll out upgrades for the WatchOS and also MacOS. There were rumours going around that Apple will release a “Dark Mode” for MacOS

Also, there are speculations that many of the iPhone apps will be made compatible for the Macbook and the desktop ecosystem. There is also talk of Apple introducing a service which looks after the “Digital Health” of the user – something that Google has already embarked on with its “Dashboard” service.

The tech fraternity and Apple themselves have been very hush-hush about any hardware announcements at the event, but knowing Tim Cook, he could have “one more thing” to speak about before the curtains drop.

Live updates to follow.
