Everything you need to know about Apple’s upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference, including when to watch it and what might be announced.

Apple has announced that their annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will be held this year from June 10-14, with the live streamed keynote presentation being held on June 10 at 10am PT, 1pm ET and 6pm BST. The event will be online, with a small invite-only, in-person crowd. Across the week, Apple will be hosting sessions, guides and more, hosted by experts, for developers and students.

How to watch the event online

You can stream the keynote presentation on apple.com, the Apple Developer app, the Apple TV app and the Apple YouTube channel. If you miss the live stream, you will be able to catch up on-demand.

What will be announced?

All we know for sure is, Apple will demo the latest operating systems coming to their products later this year. This includes iOS 18, iPadOS 18, macOS 15, tvOS 18, visionOS 2 and watchOS 11. Usually, developer previews are launched right away and public beta drop in July, before the public launch lands in September.

As for what these software updates will include, Apple are being predicatably tight lipped, but we have seen many rumours that suggest, much like every other tech event in the last 12 months, this one will be AI heavy. Apple are thought to implement AI into places like Apple Music with auto-generated playlists, Pages and Xcode with AI-assisted writing, Keynote for slide deck creation, and Spotlight bringing improved search. Apple are also thought to integrate large-language models (LLMs) into Siri. This will in turn bring many improvements across all of iOS 18 and the operating systems of their other products.

Outside of AI, Apple are thought to introduce minor design changes to some of the build-in apps and the Home Screen, with additional customizable options.

One of the only announcements that has been confirmed by Apple is RCS support in Messages. This will improve messaging between iPhone and Android, with support for high quality photo and video attachments, group chats, emoji reactions, read receipts, and typing indicators.

Usually, WWDC events are kept primarily to just software, however occasionally new hardware products are announced. Last year for example we saw Vision Pro unveiled, as well as the M2 Ultra chips come to Mac Pro and Mac Studio. This year, there are no rumours of any products being announced, however we are still waiting on a few Macs to be updated to M3 chips or beyond, including the Mac Studio, Mac mini and Mac Pro.
