Each year, Apple holds its Worldwide Developers Conference to provide a preview of what’s to come for its most important products. It also hosts thousands of developers, who flock to the conference to learn more about how to create apps for Apple’s line of iPhones, iPads, the Apple Watch, and more.
As is typically the case at WWDC, we can expect the unveiling of Apple’s next-generation operating system for iPhones and iPads to be the center of the show. This year’s update, which will likely be called iOS 13, is expected to bring new features such as a system-wide dark mode to iPhones and iPads and improvements to Apple’s homegrown apps like Health and Reminders.
Apple announced a new Mac Pro at Monday’s event, which it said is its most powerful ever. The new system offers robust features for professionals dealing with large files like videos. Apple built a new card called Afterburner that can process 6 billion pixels per second to achieve more efficient video editing. The Mac Pro has 1.5 terabytes of system memory and a 1.4 kW power supply. The Mac Pro will start at $5,999 and will be available this fall.
Apple will also reportedly announce support for developers to create apps that run across both the Mac and the iPad. There’s also a chance we’ll hear more details about the new Apple TV Plus and Apple Arcade services the company unveiled back in March.
