The annual WWDC will come as scheduled. This year, Apple will set the date of the conference from June 3 to 7. Before we start, let’s make a prediction. This time, Apple will continue to focus on software systems. iOS 13, macOS 10.15, watchOS 6, three new systems and several new functions will meet with us at the same time.
Feature 1: IOS devices will add dark mode
The new version of ios13 will not change much in UI design this time, but the interface details have changed a little. It is important to optimize the interaction between new functions and systems. The biggest change is the addition of dark mode. In fact, many apps on the AppStore have supported this mode before, but most of them are to cater to users’habits. After all, users spend more and more time watching mobile phones in dark environment. Especially when they use mobile phones in rooms with lights off, the gray-white pages they are using now look like a mini-desk lamp. This IOS device adds this mode, on the one hand, to cater to the user’s use habits, on the other hand, to extend the life of OLED screen and increase battery life. Apple’s popularity last year with the addition of macOS Mojave to Dark Mode may be one of the reasons Apple is considering.
Feature 2: Apple watch becomes a stand-alone device
Apple watch is currently used as an auxiliary recording device, many functions need to be connected to the user’s mobile phone to carry out, which to some extent restricts the development of apple watch, after all, in some cases inconvenient to carry mobile phones, the function of Apple watch is very inadequate.
But in this watchOS update, Apple has unprecedented access to AppStore support and built-in multiple pre-installed apps. Users can download and use apps directly in the watchOS version of the AppStore without relying on the iphone, which is obviously like a small mobile phone on the arm. But we also have a lot of questions, if the apple watch independent, especially the watchOS version of the AppStore, then developers need to develop new applications for the apple watch? Will there be duplicate work? All of this needs to be detailed by Apple at this conference.
In addition to the two major points mentioned above, Apple will continue to make some updates and improvements on macOS as before, as well as the corresponding updates on the hardware of the iPad and MacPro.
