WWDC 2023 will start later today. Here's a brief overview of what we can expect from Apple Park.

What Apple could announce at WWDC 2023

The biggest change that users can expect in iOS 17 is the ability to download and install apps from third party stores. Apple's hand has been forced in this matter in order to comply with the regulations set by the European Union. Experts believe that Apple may restrict sideloading to users in Europe, so the rest of the world may not get those options. Apple is said to ship various improvements to the Lock Screen, Wallet, and other elements in the next version of the OS. As for iPadOS, it could get the Widgets experience that debuted as part of iOS 16's lock screen overhaul.

What to expect from WWDC 2023

According to some previous rumors, Apple is all set to introduce a new journaling app for iPhone, which will help improve the mental health of users while respecting their privacy. The Silicon Valley mogul may also kick off a new Health service, which could be a subscription-based app, that would help users work on their fitness, and could also provide personalized training regimes based on their health data. iOS 17 may allow you to turn your iPhone's lock screen into a Smart Display, when you place it horizontally on a night stand, to help you check the time, upcoming appointments, notifications, etc.

macOS 14 may debut at today's event, though not much is known about the changes that it would bring to the table. watchOS 10 and tvOS 17 are among the next-gen iterations that users can expect from WWDC 2023. Apple has been rumored to be prepping a complete overhaul of the interface for watchOS 10, the new experience will offer a widget-like experience to provide quick access to various data via scrollable pages.

The highlight of the show could be Apple's first mixed reality headset. The Cupertino company is expected to announce the device, which is reportedly called Reality Pro, along with a new operating system called xrOS. The headset will be equipped with an Apple Silicon chip, several cameras, 4K micro OLED displays, an external battery. While it will be Apple's first foray into the AR/VR market, the Reality Pro is expected to come with a hefty price tag at about $3,000.

Rumors suggest that Apple will also unveil a new range of Macs at WWDC 2023, which could see the likes of a new 15-inch MacBook Air with an M2 silicon chip, a new Mac studio and a refreshed iMac line up. The stable versions of iOS 17, iPadOS 17, macOS 14, and watchOS 10 will likely roll out to all users in September, when Apple launches the iPhone 15 series.

    The WWDC23 Apple event delivered few unexpected surprises in terms of new apple product lineup and upgrades vs prior gen. The biggest surprise of all was seeing Mac Studio getting an upgrade together with Mac Pro and without offering any differences.
    M2 Ultra chip on both models…So what are the users paying the extra $3k? Seems like the extra $3K price tag on Mac Pro vs Ultra is just for the extra internal PCIe slots? This is a very costly mistake Apple is making! Marketing-wise how do you differentiate the two?
    That’s how Apple is making serious financial and strategic mistake here with such a lineup by risking cannibalizing their most high-end product – Mac Pro and seriously undermine Mac Pro sales in 2023/2024. This was a great day for Mac Studio as there is no need to buy Mac Pro unless you need to have those internal PCIe slots. But, If a user needs an extra expansion and slots, that user can just purchase the older intel-based Mac Pro. It’s much cheaper, more practical and makes more sense to do..
    For the new Mac customers in 2023-24, they will be better off with buying the cheaper Mac Studio that runs on the same chip, same specs and cores as Mac Pro. That’s why upgrading Mac Studio this time was a shock to many of us as we did not expect it this time.
    Overall, Apple’s desktop product segment at the WWDC23 seemed a bit chaotic and we have not seen any major iMac updates yet. Apple needs to better streamline their processes to make sure they keep timely updating the tech that sells well and generates them big profits + keeps them loyal & dedicated fan base.

    Thanks for the info! WWDC 2023 live at 17:00 GMT, we’ll watch it.

    The artist’s remark : Apple Park’s Cupertino infrastructure isn’t as nice as Uk’s Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) [https://i.insider.com/571966e39105841d008be4de?width=2400]. Not bad, though.
