Today Apple (opens in new tab) will be holding its opening keynote for WWDC 2020, the tech giant’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference where it shows off the latest and greatest innovations in its hardware and operating systems. Apple is one of the biggest technology companies in the world and while it’s normally making headlines releasing the best smartphones (opens in new tab) and tablets (opens in new tab), today’s conference will be a little different.
You won’t see any new iPhones (opens in new tab) or Macbooks (opens in new tab) being announced here, but rather seeing the updates and innovations going on inside the software and internal hardware that runs your favorite Apple devices.
Apple is expected to be making several big announcements this year, the most important of which comes off the back of a Bloomberg report which claims that Apple will be moving away from Intel chips for its Mac computers, shifting instead towards Arm chips already used in iPhones.
We’ll also likely see updates to the various operating systems, centered around iOS, that power your iPhone, iPad (opens in new tab), Macbook, and even your Apple Watch, so the show is worth checking out if you want to see what new tricks your devices will be learning in the coming months.
iOS 14 is almost a given at this point, though we have very little information about it so far. There are a few rumors floating around (opens in new tab) that suggest we’ll be seeing improved multi-tasking capabilities and some new layouts (if an Apple OS update doesn’t completely change how everything looks and where everything is, is it even really an Apple OS update?)
