Apple WWDC 2016: Potential Announcements

| Technology

Only 5 days left until Apple’s WWDC 2016 event and they have promised some “exciting reveals” that will give developers the chance to make “the most innovative apps in the world”.

So what are we likely to see?

A cleverer IOS

The rumour mill has been very quiet regarding iOS 10.

Apple has already announced that iOS 10 will allow you to hide stock apps and also unveiled a HomeKit hub which will allow you to do things like turn the heating on remotely.  

Apart from that it looks like we will have to wait until next week but we can expect some exciting new upgrades.

A new Apple Watch

This is an ongoing rumour but whether it will be announced at WWDC 2016 or this September alongside the iPhone 7 isn’t clear.

The new Apple Watch is far overdue so it isn’t so unbelievable that it will be announced next week. As for what we expect to see from the Apple Watch 2, we think it will be slightly thinner and have an updated watchOS.

Apple TV  

Apple TV is expected to get an upgrade, with new features, games and apps included. It is also rumoured to come with a home speaker that is powered by Siri.  

Apple Music 2.0

We aren’t convinced that we will see too many hardware announcements but software updates are a guarantee.

We expect to see a major renovation of Apple Music at WWDC to make it a lot more clean and tidy.

Maps upgrade

Rumour has it that Apple will be releasing their own version of Street View, as well as some other small updates to Apple Maps.

New Siri API

With people trying to decode the cryptic message on the WWDC 2016 invitation, the “Hello, WWDC!” comment seems to suggest that their might be a new Siri API. And it isn’t uncommon for Apple to announce a Siri facelift at WWDCs.

More from Health

Another bit of decoding the cryptic message has led many to believe that they will be announcing an upgrade to the Health app. The line reads “Hello workout in my living room.”

With Tim Cook being such a big fan of personal health, it isn’t that much of a stretch to believe we will hear something about the Health app next week.


Stay tuned to find out all you need to know about WWDC 2016 next week!
