On Monday from 19:00 (Spanish peninsular time) we will have the inaugural keynote of WWDC 2018. The Apple developer conference is the place where we are shown the news that will bring the next operating systems that will debut after the summer on our iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV and Apple Watch. However, it is usually a time when Apple takes the opportunity to introduce new hardware, especially when it comes to computers.
According to a report published by Mark Gurman in Bloomberg, this year there seems to be little to do in terms of hardware. Neither new MacBook nor MacBook Pro, nor new iPad, nor anything of the new Mac Pro. The news also adds information about the new Apple Watch that Apple will launch this fall, with a design very similar to the current one but with the larger screen.
In the last WWDC June 2017 last year Apple introduced the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro, as well as the second generation of the 12.7-inch iPad Pro. There was also place for the renovation of the MacBook and the MacBook Pro. This year we will not see any of this in WWDC 2018. Apple is working on new MAcBook and MacBook Pro but they will not be ready for this summer and will have to wait until autumn. The same will happen with the iPad Pro, which will have a new design without frames and Face ID (but the good one, not that of Xiaomi) but it will also be at the end of the year.
Regarding the Apple Watch, Gurman says there will be a new model by the end of the year, with a design and size almost identical to the current one, but with a larger screen by reducing the current frames. Besides the current straps will be compatible, a relief for those of us who already have a wide collection of them. Regarding software news, iOS 12 seems to have an initiative on “Digital Health” that will make us aware of the use we make of the smartphone favoring a more rational use, in addition to ARKit 2.0 with multiplayer games, improvements in the notification system and the possibility of having iOS applications in macOS. All this will be confirmed on Monday, and you can follow it live on our blog and social networks.
