Apple’s annual conference for developers around the world will be held on Monday, June 22. WWDC is typically an in-person event but this year, because of the coronavirus pandemic, the conference is an online-only affair. However, the week-long conference is still taking place. Where we can expect lots of important announcements.
WWDC is a worldwide developers conference organized by Apple every year. Developers are invited to attend meetings and meet with Apple engineers. Apple WWDC event is also famous for disclosing new hardware, new versions of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, WatchOS that run on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch. The main show will be streamed online around the world, much as in previous years.
Rumour has it that an iMac 2020 model will be announced at this year’s WWDC, featuring thin bezels and the design language of iPad Pro. Apple hasn’t updated the iMac design for years, so it makes sense if the company announces a new iMac this year. It’s being said that the new iMac might be powered by the T2 chip. We still don’t know how much does the new iMac cost when it’s announced, but the current model starts at $1099 for the 21.5-inch version.

In addition to the new iMac, AirPods Studio is also being heard this year. Rumors say that Apple is working on high-end over-the-ear headphones. They would feature sound cancelation, magnetically-attached band, cup padding, and premium sound, which they called AirPods Studio. The alleged Apple AirPods Studio would be in competing with Bose and Sony high-end headphones.
Apple is also considered to be designing a new Apple TV model. The new model will upgrade to the current Apple TV 4K. The upgraded Apple TV will have an A12X processor and 64 GB storage for the base model. We have also heard that Apple is working on a Tile-like Bluetooth tracker called AirTags.
One of the keynote presentation ‘s biggest rumors is that Apple will finally announce its plans to move away from Intel chips to ARM. Apple also made a transition from PowerPC to Intel back in 2005. Apple has used ARM-based chipsets for years on its iPhones and iPads. In the smooth transition to ARM, the role of developers is crucial. While we can expect to announce the transition from Intel to ARM next week, don’t expect new devices until 2021.
