Like every year, the World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) will certainly take place again in June this year at Apple. But when is the WWDC23 date? From when to when can developers get advice, exchange ideas, get help and take a first look at new operating systems? Below you will find the latest information and rumors about it. This article also provides an overview of the systems and devices that will be used as part of the kick-offKeynote (could) be presented at WWDC 2023. Have you picked up any other rumors or are you looking forward to certain releases? Then please leave a comment!
Chapter in this post:
When will WWDC23 and its keynote take place?
The Apple World Wide Developers Conference usually takes place in the first half of June each year, often in the first full week of the month. Possible periods for WWDC23 would be from June 5th to 9th, 2023 or from June 12th to 16th, 2023:
- 05.06. until 09.06.2023/XNUMX/XNUMX: first full week in June of this year
- 12.06. until 16.06.2023/XNUMX/XNUMX: is also in the first half of the month
The opening keynote of this special working week, as the opening presentation with new content for the public, will of course take place again on the appropriate Monday (June 5th or 12th), most likely at 10:00 a.m. local time in Cupertino. This means that it will be broadcast at 19:00 p.m. in Germany.
Will WWDC23 be onsite or just online?
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, WWDC 2020 took place completely online for the first time. This was continued in 2021 and 2022. However, Apple has partially returned to on-site events in recent months. It is therefore possible that at least parts of WWDC23 will again take place face-to-face in Apple Park and its Steve Jobs Theater. Owing to cost savings but it may also be the case that this will not be the case. In addition, it is not yet clear whether the above-mentioned keynote opening the developer week will be broadcast live or played as a pre-recorded presentation. The latter has also proven to be practical in recent years due to Covid.
If Apple invites you to on-site appointments, this will certainly not be the only way to take part in WWDC23. The iPhone maker would certainly get a lot of criticism and negative headlines if there wasn't a hybrid model that puts at least some of the content, sessions, expert appointments and stuff like that online. On the developer websites and via certain App-Contents can usually be retrieved from lectures, instructions and introductions to new technologies anyway. Through the official developer app Apple can also catch up on previous content from previous years. Do you plan to participate in WWDC23? How and because of what content exactly? Let me know by commenting below this post.
Which Apple operating systems will be presented in June 2023?
As every year, we can expect new operating systems for the iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple Watch to take center stage. These will again provide new, improved or otherwise changed functions in order to get even more out of the devices. In addition, new beta versions with innovations in the operating systems for Apple TV, the HomePod and the like will certainly be released again. These aren't always presented during the opening keynote, but are interesting as well.
- iOS 17 for iPhone and iPod touch: The new iPhone operating system iOS 17 could as well as iOS 16 come up with a few surprises in 2022. New design options, additional security functions, more efficient background processes and the like are possible.
- iPadOS 17 for iPad: The new iPad operating system, iPadOS 17, could bring new multitasking options, support for additional peripherals, new technologies for pencil use, and so on to the Apple tablet. But also completely unexpected things.
- macOS 14 for Mac: The new Mac operating system macOS 14 will certainly only run on Apple computers that have an "Apple Silicon" SoC (M chip). A further adaptation to the mobile systems as well as overlapping functions could be the focus. Maybe this year there will also be an integration of AI.
- watchOS 10 for Apple Watch: The new watchOS 10 watch operating system could bring new features for health and fitness if it follows the previous systems. A new training detection and / or new automations for the recording of training sessions are just as conceivable as new triggers for emergency calls or health reports.
- More systems: In addition, either as keynote content or only as beta versions during the rest of WWDC23, the new tvOS 17 for the Apple TV, the HomePod software 17 and so on. New smart home functions are conceivable for both of these, but also possibilities for networking in the house and with contacts all over the world.
Introducing the latest M2 version, the M3 chip and new Mac models
The introduction of new "Apple Silicon" chips could follow a certain cycle in the coming years. I already showed the train of thought behind it two weeks ago in the article “New iMac to be launched with M3 chip (+ more Mac news)“. The M23 Ultra could therefore be presented as part of the WWDC2 keynote, which could be accompanied by the presentation of the new Mac Pro and possibly a new Mac Studio. In addition to the latest M2 version, the M3 chip could also be presented directly, with a new iMac, MacBook Air and the like. Perhaps only the M2 Ultra and Macs equipped with it will be presented; and then the M3 in the fall. It remains exciting!
Also expected for June: mixed reality headset with xrOS
On the one hand it is said to have been postponed again and again, on the other hand Tim Cook himself is supposed to push for a quick introduction. We are of course talking about Apple's mixed reality headset, which is available as a VR and AR device under the name "reality pro"Or"reality one' could be presented. In addition to the new hardware, which is said to work without an iPhone, Mac or other additional device, there is also a new operating system. The name for this was always in rumor reports until the end of last year realityOS or rOS used. In the meantime, however, it is assumed that it will be called xrOS - for "extended reality operation system". That actually makes more sense.
