Last year’s keynote was nearly two hours long, as was the keynote in 2020. Expect a similar length for the WWDC 2022 live stream this year.
What to expect at this year’s conference
As always, Apple’s latest version of iOS will be the star of the show.
According to recent leaks, iOS 16 will not feature a complete overhaul, but it should introduce a number of useful and interesting features. Most notably, iOS 16 can give the lock screen a makeover. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says “wallpapers that have widget-like capabilities” will be coming to the lock screen this fall. Personally, I only use the lock screen to protect my iPhone from intruders. This should be a notable addition.
iOS 16 would also add support for always-on displays. Rumors suggest that the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max could be the first iPhones to feature always-on displays. You will be able to see the clock, battery level and notifications at a glance.
Other rumored additions include iOS notification improvements, new Apple apps, more Fitness Plus workouts, and a smarter Health app.
iPadOS 16 is expected to feature many of the same updates and changes, but rumors also point to an all-new multitasking interface for the iPad. Finally, the iPad could come close to being the laptop replacement that Apple has always claimed it could be.
New hardware from Apple?
Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference keynotes usually focus exclusively on software updates. It will likely still be the case this year, but when Apple hosts a big event, there’s always a chance the company will show off some new hardware as well.
Of course, the device everyone wants to see is the mixed reality headset. Recent reports suggest that Apple is planning to launch the AR/VR headset next year, and it would make sense to launch the device at an event attended by developers building apps for it. That said, most reliable sources think Apple will wait a bit longer.
Finally, there’s a chance we’ll see the next MacBook Air or Mac Pro at WWDC 2022.
