The music fades. The lights go down. A video plays. Developers. Apps. Apple. The community. We’re all together again. And when the lights come back up, Tim Cook is walking onto the stage. “Thank you. Thank you. Good morning. And welcome to Apple’s 30th annual WWDC!” And then we’re going to get it — Festivus in June. When Apple unwraps all the software presents, from iOS 13 to macOS 10.15, tvOS 13 to watchOS 6. And maybe, just maybe, our first look at the all new, all modular Mac Pro and 6K Pro Display. It’s Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference and, to help talk us all through it, I called up one of the smartest developers on the planet.
Today Apple WWDC 2019 Preview
It’s everything to expect at Apple’s WWDC 2019. iOS 13 for the iPhone and iPad will be getting Dark Mode, lose 3D Touch, and gain a lot of refinements and tweaks with different apps. macOS is incorporating more iOS features into the Mac. WatchOS brings even more features to the popular Apple watch. But will we see any new hardware at all? The best bet is the new MacPro, but we’ll see.
iOS 13 feature requests:
1. Less obtrusive volume HUD (like video playback HUD)
2. USB storage for iPad in files.app
3. Combine multitask + control center on iPad (like iOS 11)
4. Custom lock screen (you did custom keyboards in iOS 8)
5. Theming Engine 6. Dark Mode
