Igor AsharenkovJune 06, 2024


As Apple enthusiasts and developers eagerly await the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2024, speculation is rife about what groundbreaking updates and innovations the tech giant will unveil. Based on insights from multiple reliable sources, we can anticipate several significant announcements, especially in the realms of AI, iOS 18, and macOS 15.

iOS 18: A Major Overhaul

iOS 18 is expected to be one of the most substantial updates in Apple's history.

The integration of AI is set to take center stage, with enhancements such as AI-powered message writing assistance and automatic playlist creation in Apple Music. This version will also bring Rich Communication Services (RCS) support, greatly improving messaging between iPhone and Android users by introducing features like cross-platform emoji reactions and read receipts.

Additionally, iOS 18 might offer more customization options, allowing users to change app icon colors and reconfigure the home screen layout. Other anticipated updates include AI enhancements for apps like Notes and Photos, as well as new functionalities in Calendar and Apple Maps.

macOS 15: Aligning with iOS Innovations

macOS 15 will likely incorporate many of the same AI features as iOS 18, including AI-driven functionalities in productivity apps like Keynote and Pages. The System Settings app is rumored to undergo a reorganization, prioritizing more frequently used settings. Siri might receive a visual update, adopting a flat monochrome design, and additional accessibility upgrades are expected.

AI and Siri: A New Era

Apple's focus on AI will be a significant highlight of WWDC 2024. Enhancements to Siri, including more natural interactions and better integration with core apps, are anticipated. The rumored Ajax AI could significantly upgrade Siri’s capabilities, potentially positioning it as a competitor to leading AI technologies like ChatGPT. This strategic move underscores Apple's commitment to delivering a more intuitive and efficient user experience across its ecosystem.

Hardware Announcements

Unlike previous years, WWDC 2024 might not feature major new hardware announcements. The focus will likely remain on software updates, although there is some speculation about potential minor hardware refreshes, such as new peripherals or an updated Apple TV box. Major hardware releases, like the next generation of iPhones and Apple Watches, are expected to be unveiled later in the year.
