Summer is here and with it the WWDC: Apple’s developer conference starts on Whit Monday (June 6) with a keynote, which, as always, will be held by corporate boss Tim Cook and his management colleagues. Among other things, new editions of all of the group’s operating systems will be presented. There could also be interesting hardware surprises. The event starts at 7 p.m. Central European Time.
Lots of new software
As is usual at a Worldwide Developers Conference, developers and users will find out here for the first time where Apple’s software journey is headed. Whether iOS, iPadOS, macOS, tvOS or watchOS – all systems get updates. The group always presents these in detail at the WWDC, and they also go straight into the beta test for developers. The public will then have access in the fall.
According to the rumor mill, Apple is also planning new hardware. That could be a new MacBook Air, for example, but the first Mac Pro with ARM hardware is also a possibility. But it could also be that Apple does not deliver any new Macs at all and pushes them into the coming months.
It’s getting particularly exciting when it comes to mixed reality: Apple has been working on its first headset for a long time and in the past few weeks it has looked as if the company could finally act. However, there is also the possibility that Apple will postpone the presentation until next year so as not to reveal too much to the competition. The device, which is supposed to run with the new realityOS operating system, would not be on the market before 2023 anyway, they say.

Live ticker and after-show talk
As always, Mac & i reports on the Apple keynote with a live ticker that allows readers to follow all the innovations in the minutes:
In a live stream on the evening of the keynote, Johannes Börnsen (heise online), Jean-Claude Frick (Apfelfunk Podcast, @jcfrick) and Malte Kirchner (heise online/Apfelfunk, @maltekir) then together about their first impressions and evaluations of what they have just seen. It starts a few minutes after the end of Apple’s transmission on Whit Monday, probably around 9 p.m.
Has the software met the most important user requirements? Was there a taste of an AR headset? Was other hardware presented? These questions and the associated product presentations will be discussed in this commentary after the keynote.
