What is Apple WWDC 2022?

WWDC is Apple's yearly developer convention, where app makers gather in huge numbers.

Apple also uses the event to make major announcements about its products.

The event usually attracts thousands of visitors, but 2020 marked the first time WWDC was virtual-only.

And the 2021 WWDC event followed suit with an exclusively online experience.

Apple's 2022 will also be mostly virtual, but with a special limited-capacity event.

"Apple will host a special day for developers and students at Apple Park on June 6 to watch the keynote and State of the Union videos together, along with the online community," Apple said.

"Space will be limited, and details about how to apply to attend will be provided on the Apple Developer site and app soon."

Apple WWDC 2022 news and rumours – what to expect

Apple hasn't confirmed exactly what we'll see at WWDC.

But the event will almost certainly introduce iOS 16.

That's the next big update for our iPhones, which will introduce a host of new features for free.

We'll likely see a public beta test of iOS 16 in the weeks following WWDC.

And then the general release of the software will likely land in late September alongside the new iPhone 14 launch.

We'll also hear about new software updates for other key Apple product lines.

This includes iPadOS 16 for iPad, macOS 13 for Mac, watchOS 9 for Apple Watch and tvOS 16 for Apple TV.

There are also reports of a new operating system called homeOS for Apple's HomePod and HomePod mini smart speakers.

It's possible that Apple could also use WWDC to announce new products.

This has been the case at WWDC events in the past.

In 2019, Apple unveiled the 3rd-gen Mac Pro and the Pro Display XDR.

And in 2020, Apple revealed the big upcoming switch from Intel chips to its own custom processors for Mac products.
