Apple WWDC 2020 keynote: iOS 14, Watch OS 7, ARM Macs
What to expect today...
Apple are expected to cover the following in today's keynote.
Macs moving to Arm-based chips. Low-power usage Arm-based chips power iPhones and iPads, and Apple have been wanting to put them in their laptops and desktops for a while now. But don't expect many references to Arm itself - while the basic framework comes from Arm, these will be Apple-designed chips and the Cupertino company will simply talk about Apple silicon. The big benefit for Apple in making this move is that they will control the chips going into all their machines, and not be tied to Intel as they are at the moment for their computers. Apple's mobile chips are streets ahead of the competition, so expect exciting things from the new computers.
New iMac. The current design is long in the tooth and it's time to get those bezels thinner and show off some new industrial design.
iOS/iPadOS 14. All the latest bells and whistles for the new iPhone coming in September. It'll be "even more powerful and easier to use". New homescreen? Could we see an iPhoneOS?
MacOS 10.16. The future of the Mac. The truth is 10.15 Carolina has been a buggy mess in parts, so a full tidy up of what's going on under the hood would be pleasant.
watch0S 7 There'll be a new watch in September too. New screens and likely more health developments. A blood oxygen monitor in the new watch has been widely rumoured.
