Thousands expected for Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose

Thousands expected for Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose

The biggest announcement during the WWDC 2018 is speculated to be the arrival of iOS 12. The WWDC 2018 keynote will be "all about software", Cook has declared, and invited on stage Craig Federighi, the head of software development for Apple.

According to the firm, apps will launch up to 60% faster on an iPhone 6 Plus, a device that launched four years ago in 2014. However, it is rumored that Apple will release a new "Digital Health" initiative which could include tools that can help iOS users learn how much time they spend on their devices.

Stay tuned for more details later today. It will. Mooted improvements include ARKit tweaks, and a stronger focus on "Digital Health", which Apple hopes will help us disconnect from our devices more easily.

At Apple's official WWDC keynote today, Apple head honcho Craig Federighi took a subtle but rightful jab at Apple's iOS biggest software competitor - Android.

If the universal app support rumours between Apple computer and mobile systems are true, developers will only need to write one app for both platforms instead of re-writing the code for another.

Apple is rumoured to launch the iPhone SE 2 during the WWDC.

Israeli shelling kills 1 Palestinian in Gaza
The military said it hit drone storage facilities, military compounds, and rocket and munition workshops across the Gaza Strip . According to Israel's Channel 10, experts estimate more than 115 missiles and rockets were launched from Gaza into Israel.

Tech giant Apple is set to roll out new software in a bid to tackle addictions to electronic devices.

While describing the new Shortcut app that works with Apple personal assistant Siri, Federighi said Siri processes 10 billion requests a year.

As for hardware, everyone is hoping to see the final release of Apple's multi-device wireless charging pad AirPower, which was announced in a keynote a year ago, but has been notably missing from any Apple-related news since. Services are anticipated to become Apple's next long-term growth catalyst, as iPhone sales slows down.

ArsTechnica predicts a new tvOS, but not a "major overhaul". The Zacks Consensus Estimate for long-term earnings growth rate is now pegged at 11.77%. Apple shares have returned 12.4% year to date, outperforming S&P 500's increase of 2.3%. Both those numbers were records for Apple.
