June is a huge month for Apple fans, though not much is revealed to the general public. This is because the Global Developers Conference, better known as WWDC, begins in June. At 6:00 am on June 6, Apple will have a keynote address for the unveiling of iOS 16, iPadOS 16, tvOS 16, watchOS 9, and macOS 13. We’ll learn all about the latest features coming to our Apple devices this fall.
The company may also unveil new hardware at WWDC-sometimes it does, and sometimes it doesn’t. There are rumors of a new MacBook Air, Mac Mini, iMac Pro (or iMac Studio) and Mac Pro. We would be surprised if all of these are present, but there may be one or two of them.
Of course, not all big events are going to Apple in June. There are currently beta tests for iOS 15.6 and macOS 12.5, which will probably be released to the general public later this month. And Apple TV + and Apple Arcade are releasing new content to focus on Here’s what to expect before the end of June:
Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference will be held June 6-10, with a keynote address at 10 a.m. PT on June 6. So stay tuned for more information on iOS 16, macOS 13, watchOS 9 and everything else that might be here.
Operating system announcements will often be followed immediately by a developer beta which is often quite bogie and can only be accessed through a developer account (which costs $ 100 per year). We also expect a public beta release, although the odds are good that it won’t start until July.
If Apple unveils new hardware at WWDC, one wonders when it might be shipped. Typically, when Apple releases new hardware, it can be pre-ordered later that week and shipped a week or two later. But we’ve seen Apple give a sneak preview of the hardware on the WWDC that isn’t shipped much later in the year, like the current Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR. And supply chain issues delayed delivery of some Macs in August, anyone would guess.
Rumors of new hardware
I’m happy today
There have been some fantastic rumors about a new redesigned MacBook Air with an M2 chip, probably (or not). We also see a new 13-inch MacBook Pro with the M2. However, we think these are more likely to appear at an event later this year.
Also requires an update High-end Mac Mini, which is still powered by Intel processors. Rumor has it that it will get a new design and an M1 Pro chip.
Over the years, new Mac Pro models have been introduced at WWDC and this year is no different. It’s been two years since Apple announced plans to move from Intel to its own Silicon Valley when it took the stage at the WWDC event, and the Mac Pro is the only Mac that has yet to transform. Even if it’s not ready for sale, we hope Apple shows what it plans to do with this powerhouse.
Pro Display XDR
Rumor has it that the Pro Display XDR could get an update in 2022 and what could be a better place than a new Mac Pro as well as WWDC. Read more here: Apple is planning a 7K Pro display XDR for 2022.
Apple also turned off the 27-inch iMac when it launched the Mac Studio, but that doesn’t mean the big iMac is dead. In fact, Apple may launch a new 27-inch iMac Pro this year, probably at WWDC.
Apps and software updates
iOS 15.6: Apple is currently beta-testing iOS 15.6, but it doesn’t seem to have any major new features. This can only be a bug fix and security update. Either way, we expect it to be released in June (including iPadOS, tvOS and watchOS).
macoS 12.5: The next macOS Monterey release is now in beta, although unlike iOS 15.6, macOS 12.5 does not appear to be adding any new features. We suspect that this will only be a bugfix and security update that coincides with the iOS, iPadOS, tvOS and watchOS updates.
iOS 16 Beta 1: When Apple unveils all its new operating systems, it will soon offer a beta version (full of bugs and missing features) for registered developers. Read about what we expect from iOS 16. A public beta will probably come in a few weeks later (probably in July) in a less bogie state.
iPadOS 16 Beta 1: iPadOS 16 will definitely join iOS 16 in a developer beta. Rumor has it that we can expect another big change in multitasking, we hope Apple fixes it this year!
tvOS 16 Beta 1: tvOS updates (which run on Apple TV hardware) follow the iOS release, so expect betas to arrive at the same time. Some versions of TVOS have lots of new features and changes, others are relatively small. We have no idea what to expect from TVOS 16.
watchOS 9 Beta 1: The new iOS beta is usually accompanied by the new watchOS beta. We have heard that watchOS 9 will have new watch face and fitness features among other things. Only recently did Apple begin public beta testing for watchOS, but the public beta for watchOS 9 will probably not be released until July.
macOS 13 beta 1: We don’t I know The macOS 13 that will be named “Mammoth” is just a rumor and it is perceived with the latest California themes. Sometimes, macOS beta updates lag behind their iOS counterparts, in part due to the variety of hardware that needs to be supported across the Mac ecosystem. Expect a developer beta in June, but not necessarily immediately after the announcement, and a public beta in July.
