US technology giant Apple has revealed that the 2022 Worldwide Developers Conference will take place between June 6 and June 10 and will be streamed online.
According to GSM Arena, there will also be a personal presence, but limited. The initial keynote will still be pre-recorded, but the Apple Park at 1 Infinite Loop in Cupertino will open its doors to a limited number of developers.
The group of developers can watch the keynote in the company of Apple’s engineers and designers. The lucky few had to apply via an online form earlier this week, and the company is now sending out invitations.
According to the report, all participants must “follow Apple’s health and safety protocols”, which means that a negative COVID-19 test must be provided. Masks, however, are optional. Once inside, they get a tour of the facilities of the new developer center at Apple Park.
Apple is expected to unveil new versions of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS at the upcoming WWDC 2022. The company is said to be working on iOS 16 and macOS 13. The new version of iOS 16 is expected to provide new redesigned app icons for Apple apps, camera app enhancements , new widgets and upgraded themes. The update is said to be available for iPhones that were launched after the iPhone 6s. At the same time, iPadOS 16 will reportedly provide floating app windows, new widgets and support for video editing tools such as Final Cut Pro, Logic Pro and Xcode.
Recent reports have also suggested that Apple may be launching new hardware at the event. The company is said to be working on a new Apple silicone-powered Mac Pro. The company is likely to unveil this product at WWDC 2022. The new smaller Mac Pro is expected to have a 40-core CPU and a 128-core GPU. In addition to this, Apple is also expected to launch a new iMac Pro with a larger screen, and a new Mac mini model as well.
