Apple has confirmed its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) keynote will take place on June 4.
The company is likely to unveil the new iOS 12 software for iPhone and iPad, while new editions of macOS, watchOS and tvOS have traditionally made an appearance during the address.
Apple has confirmed the event will be live streamed via the WWDC app for iPhone and iPad as well as the Apple Events app for Apple TV. It’ll also be available on the Apple Developers’ website.
Preview versions of the respective operating systems have traditionally become available to developers (and more recently the public) in the immediate aftermath of the event.
A down year for iOS?
Recent rumours have suggests iOS 12 could be a more modest update than we’re used to with Apple choosing to work on stability rather than adding a litany of new features.
Reports last month suggested a wide-reaching overhaul of the iOS interface, a new version of CarPlay and a revamped Photos app won’t arrive in iOS 12. However, we might see a digital health app Animojis within FaceTime.

The most important new feature may benefit Mac owners, with reports suggesting universal iOS/macOS apps will be introduced this year.
WWDC has traditionally been a software focused event, but Apple has surprised with hardware announcements every now and then.
Last year the firm introduced the HomePod speaker, but it wouldn’t go on sale for another eight months.
This year’s event, the 29th in Apple’s storied history, will take place at the McEnery Convention Centre in San Jose, which is where the event took place last year.
