What we can expect from Apple's WWDC 2021 this Monday, June 7

Qué podemos esperar de la WWDC 2021 de Apple de este lunes 7 de junio

This Monday, June 7, WWDC 2021 kicks off, which will last all week. During the inaugural keynote, Apple will unveil its software roadmap for the next 12 months. In addition to this, other surprises are also expected, such as the hardware and other things that we do not expect.

We review all of this three days before the most important presentation for Apple developers. The same one will renew the soul of our devices and update them for an entire year.

WWDC 2021: what we can expect

New iOS 15, macOS 12, and other operating systems

Unlike on other occasions, this WWDC has not suffered major leaks. Last year a previous version of iOS 14 was leaked that revealed a lot of information about the system, which was subsequently confirmed during the corresponding WWDC. That hasn't been the case in 2021 when WWDC went almost blindly.

Much of the limelight will be taken by iOS 15, without a doubt. Very specific things are known about this new version of the software for iPhone:

iOS 15
  • Choice of the type of notifications according to new states, such as driving, working, or sleeping as well as other customizable ones.
  • The lock screen will also adapt to these new states.
  • Improvements in privacy feature with a specific menu of the data used by the apps.
  • A record of meals to track a diet.
  • An improvement to dark mode, though without specifying in which direction.

As for macOS 12, we can expect the obvious improvements in iPad apps running on Mac with Apple Silicon chip. And also specific functions for these models, since it is the first version of macOS developed with Mac Apple Silicon on the street.

macOS 12

One of the most repeated questions is the name that will accompany macOS 12. Mammoth and Monterey are two of the candidates, both of which are icons of California geography (the first a lake and the second a Big Sur region). Apparently, Apple has already registered both names recently.

As for the rest of the operating systems, no further details are known. watchOS 8 and tvOS 15 have gone unnoticed in the world of leaks. As for iPadOS 15, the arrival of widgets expected, being able to place them on either side of the screen.

Will there be a new home?


In recent days a new operating system called homes has emerged, leaked into a job offer from Apple. The mention was quickly removed from the offer, but it was long enough for us to echo in Applesfera. This leads us to speculate on a home kit relaunch and Apple's home automation effort.

This sector is moving a lot in recent years, with Apple being part of a large coalition of home automation platforms and manufacturers. At the same time, those in Cupertino have added the Thread protocol to the HomePod mini and Apple TV 4K. It's quite possible that this WWDC 2021 we'll see something about it.

Apple's most rumored hardware

The hardware also aspires to have a place in this WWDC 2021. Developer conferences are not the usual place to present new computers. But it's not unusual for Apple to do so, to the point of presenting lots of them as happened in 2017.

The clearest candidate to be unveiled is the new 2021 MacBook Pro. It would come in two sizes of 14 and 16 inches and would incorporate a new design with more ports, HDMI, SD card reader, and a version of MagSafe while also got rid of the Touch Bar. Several rumors are pointing to his performance at WWDC. Although others place them this autumn.

There are other products in the quinellas, although they have not been placed in WWDC 2021. One of them is the new redesigned MacBook Air and also another redesigned Mac mini. For now, we shouldn't rule out a small role for hardware in Apple's WWDC. After all, we're about to celebrate one year since the announcement of the transition to Apple Silicon and a conference full of developers is the best time.
