Apple WWDC 2022 rumors, iOS 16 and what we expect


WWDC 2022: Everything You Need to Know

Within the next few weeks, Apple will host WWDC 2022, its annual developer conference. Every year, at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple executives show off the latest versions of the operating systems that power their products, including iPhones, Macs, iPads, watches, and television sets.

The WWDC event will be streamed online, as has been the case with previous Apple events. Predicting what Apple will add in 2022 after this announcement is like firing the first shot in a war.


Additionally, after each keynote, Apple typically releases the developer betas for the next major OS update to the public. In the following months and weeks, more stable public betas will be released, and in the fall, the final versions will be released in conjunction with new hardware.

WWDC 2022 dates

The first day of WWDC 2022 is scheduled for June 6 and the last day is scheduled for June 10. On June 6, the keynote address and accompanying State of the Union videos will be made public for the first time. The keynote is the more public-facing video of the two, while the State of the Union is aimed at developers.

The keynote for WWDC 2022 will begin at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT/6 p.m. GMT on June 6, 2022. The event is expected to be streamed on Apple’s WWDC website, as well as on YouTube and Apple TV. Using the colours of the Apple logo, five silhouettes of people are depicted in this keynote invitation, which reads, “Swiftly Approaching.” This is a play on the Swift programming language, which is used by Apple’s software developers to create various applications.


During WWDC 2022, the Apple Design Awards will be presented as well.

iOS 16

iOS 16 is expected to bring significant improvements to the Health app and the way iPhone notifications are handled (opens in new tab). According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman (opens in new tab).

As was the case with iOS 15, many of its best features will likely be available on other Apple devices. These features are as much Apple features as they are iPhone features, like Live Text and SharePlay, which allow users to watch a show or movie together from afar. In a follow-up report, he also hinted at new Apple apps coming with iOS 16.


Owners of iPhones frequently extol the virtues of their devices’ continual software updates. According to a leak, Apple’s 6-plus-year-old iPhones may not be included in iOS 16.

One of our favourite additions to iOS 15 is the new Focus Modes. But when you ask around online, there’s a sense of improvement in the area of Focus.

The long-rumored Apple AR/VR headset could be mentioned in iOS 16, according to Mark Gurman of Bloomberg. Even if we don’t know what the headset’s features will be, it would still be a big deal if it was confirmed.


macOS 13

In the last few years, Macs have become more integrated into the Apple ecosystem than ever before. As a result, iPad apps can run on Apple Silicon Macs thanks to Universal Control, which allows users to use the same mouse and keyboard on both Mac and iPad.

Mac OS X Mavericks 13: What’s New? As far as we can tell, Apple will continue to provide you with reasons to stay in the MacOS ecosystem.

watchOS 9

You can expect more health and fitness upgrades, as well as integrations with HomeKit, Apple Wallet, and Apple Fitness Plus, when watchOS 9 is released in September. However, what new features for watchOS 9 would we like to see Apple unveil at WWDC 2022?


We’d like to see the iPhone’s Health app make a big impression on the Apple Watch. This app already collects a lot of data from the Apple Watch, so it’s a natural fit for the watchOS platform.

A Notes App for the Apple Watch would also make a lot of sense. The TG staff is curious as to why Apple hasn’t yet implemented Siri’s ability to take notes on the fly and check your shopping list.

Also, Apple, please take a break from now on. For some of us, keeping our Fitness app streaks going is so important that it’s almost making us stressed! Allowing users to take a day off every now and then would do wonders for their mental well-being.


iPadOS 16

This is an intriguing case. In iPadOS 15, features such as multitasking and widgets finally made their debut, but many users were left disappointed by the iPad’s reluctance to adopt a Mac-like user interface.

It’s a good time to announce that iPads can run Mac apps now that even the iPad Air 2022 has an M1 chip. Macs can run iPad apps, so what’s the hold up?

Good news is that iPadOS 16 is expected to include a full-fledged desktop with resizable windows (opens in new tab). In addition, plugging in a keyboard and mouse could instantly shrink down apps, which would feel more laptop-like. In other words, with iPadOS 16, the iPad could finally replace your laptop.


tvOS 16

No rumours have popped up about what tvOS 16 will offer, but we’ve got two requests. First, can Apple make the Apple TV support external webcams? Without this, FaceTime SharePlay forces you to juggle multiple Apple devices.

Secondly, bring the Mac and iPad’s split-screen mode over. For those unfamiliar with the concept, think of it as “picture-in-picture.” The multi-stream view on Fubo TV is a huge boon for sports fans and anyone trying to keep track of two or more channels at the same time.

Hardware: Apple VR headset, MacBook Air or new Mac Pro?

As with Apple and Epic Games, hoping for a big product reveal at WWDC isn’t always successful. Nevertheless, people’s expectations are constantly raised, and two devices have emerged this year for which we have high expectations.


Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman predicts that a MacBook Air 2022 and another Mac will be unveiled at WWDC 2022. MacBook Air 2022 reportedly powered by a new M2 chip and will be available in a variety of eye-catching hues At the conference, we’ll have to wait and see what’s on the agenda.

There’s also the new Apple Mac Pro, which is powered by silicon from Apple. This new powerful Mac would likely have many fans in the developer community, making WWDC as good as any time to show a hint at what’s to come if it were teased at the end of Apple’s March 2022 event. That doesn’t mean anything’s guaranteed, but it wouldn’t hurt to have it happen at all!

Even though the Apple VR/AR headset isn’t calling for a WWDC 2022 unveiling, it’s worth wondering how much time the company will give third-party app developers to prepare apps for the headset. We don’t expect to see the final hardware at WWDC 202, but Apple could tease the rumoured realityOS, which would run on the headset. Recent rumours point to a 2023 release. According to reports, iO6 16 is heavily linked to Apple’s rumoured AR/VR headset (opens in new tab).
