The opportunity to purchase tickets will once again be offered by random selection, and only those who are members of the Apple Developer Program as of today will be eligible to register for the conference, and registration will close on Thursday, March 22, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. PDT.
Apple is also planning to bring its Anomoji characters to the iPad with iOS 12, according to reports, while the firm's own WWDC teaser (above) suggests the firm will also announce some major ARKit updates.
Yes, there are legitimate cries that Apple's software quality has slipped, that its products are too expensive, that there's still no new Mac Pro, or Mac mini, that Apple locks its products down too tightly, especially with notebooks and Mac Minis that are not quite impossible to upgrade, but vastly harder to do so. The change came as quite a surprise, as did the timing of the announcement, which in past years came closer to the event.
A new version of macOS. That leaves the WWDC 2018 as a potential launch pad. Here's hoping iOS 12 doesn't repeat its predecessor's mistakes.
Returning to the Bloomberg report, it says that the new iPads will probably include Apple's custom-designed GPU and AI chip which it first used in the iPhone 8 and X. It also states that Apple has been "poaching" engineers from Qualcomm, which could well be to bolster its range of own-design chips. You wouldn't need to break your workflow to switch between your iOS device and your Mac computer to use an iOS app.
MacBook Air is one of the best laptops of Apple.
As well as a new MacBook, Apple could debut a new iPhone SE and a smaller version of its HomePod speaker, which could also be cheaper than the original. Zhang notes that Apple announced the second-generation iPad Pro at last year's WWDC, making an announcement for a redesigned tablet at this year's event entirely plausible.
