New Operating Systems and Hardware: Apple WWDC 2021 Predictions
Apple announced its annual WWDC conference for developers this year 2021, which is scheduled to be held virtually online next Monday, June 7, and will end on the 11th of the same month, and the much awaited event will begin with the word of the company CEO, Tim Cook, and will be followed by a series From the presentations to the company’s department managers, and this annual event is usually an opportunity for application developers to see the tools and technologies that Apple plans to launch, learn about them and experience them to benefit from them later when creating their applications, of course the Arab Hardware team will cover the event moment by moment Until the time comes, we’ll review with you the products and software we expect Apple to unveil at its WWDC Worldwide Developers Conference and let’s start our predictions.
iOS and iPad OS
The annual Apple Developers Conference WWDC is where Apple uses to reveal new operating systems for its devices, and new versions of iOS and iPadOS are sure to be a major focus during the event, and Apple is expected to announce iOS 15 as the iPhone is still a baby Spoiled Apple and why not, there are more than a billion active iPhones in use around the world, and the iPhone is no longer just a phone for Apple, but has become a gateway to the company’s growing services, through which it makes billions of dollars.
According to Bloomberg, both iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 will bring significant changes to the notifications and home screen, and iPhone users will be able to set specific preferences based on their current state, such as when they are driving or sleeping, with expanded options for auto-responders.
Biggerly, Tim Cook and Apple Chief of Programs Craig Federigi will be talking about the new privacy features after the App Tracking Transparency (ATT) initiative, first announced last year, went into effect with the rollout of iOS 14.5 — and has since been in place. Controversy, with app makers of all sizes (headed by Facebook) saying Apple’s restrictions on ad tracking would badly hurt their business.
So, one of the changes likely to come with iOS 15 is a kind of privacy-focused menu that lets people silently view ads that track them, as well as pop-up notifications that tell them which apps are tracking them in the background.
Other operating systems
Apple is also scheduled to announce new versions of macOS for Mac devices, watchOS for its smartwatch, and tvOS for Apple TV.
Unlike the iPhone and iPad operating system, we know little about what to expect from other Apple operating systems, as macOS will likely be called macOS 12, and the upcoming changes to the new Mac operating system are minor, and we haven’t seen any credible reports about what to expect. However, more privacy features appear to be a safe bet, which is why we wouldn’t be surprised to see Apple trying to address criticism that iOS and iPadOS apps running macOS aren’t as smooth and light when running.
As for watchOS for the Apple watch, there’s not much around it but we expect Apple to release a number of health-related features in the new operating system for its Apple Watch.
Perhaps the most interesting recent leak has been the seemingly accidental inclusion of the term “homeOS” in Apple’s job listing, and the term appears to have been replaced by “HomePod” and “tvOS” in the two places it appeared, suggesting that the company may be planning to integrate Both systems in order to create a unified smart home operating system.
Apple M2 chip
When Apple introduced its M1 chip late last year, it was the first SoC chip designed specifically for Mac computers and then everyone saw the level of performance and energy efficiency, superior to other chips of powerful companies, but at the same time, the M1 chip was just the beginning, it was not designed to work With pro Macs, instead, the chip has appeared in the lowest available Macs such as the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and even the 13-inch Mac mini, and most recently, the 24-inch iMac has been powered by an Apple chip.
That’s why we expect to see the successor to the M1 dedicated to the Macs of professionals and professionals. Apple may call the new chip the M2 or M1X, whatever its name, the new chip will raise the maximum supported RAM from 16 GB to 64 GB.
The chip will also allow computers to have more ports than what we saw in M1 Macs, and sources say that Apple will offer two different types of chips for the MacBook Pro, and the CPUs of these chips will include eight high-performance cores and two efficiency cores. The graphics in one device have 16 cores, while the GPU in the other version has 32 cores.
Famous leaker John Prosser claims that Apple is planning to introduce new 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models during its conference, but no one knows the truth of the matter because the company has not announced any new devices during the WWDC conference since 2016. The new Book Pro is expected to be redesigned with a re-introduced MagSafe port along with an HDMI port and SD card reader as well as Thunderbolt / USB-C ports.
Finally, these were some expectations about the products and programs expected to be launched by Apple during its annual developer conference this year, WWDC 2021, however we will have to wait until next Monday, June 7, in order to know everything that will be revealed about the company, and of course we will work to cover the event via Our account on Twitter and the official website, so follow us and you will get everything new at Apple WWDC 2021.
