Apple just announced iOS 16, the latest software for iPhones.

It’s the “biggest lockscreen update ever, completely reinventing how it works,” said Apple SVP of software engineering Craig Federighi. It’s an all-new look that allows users to customize the lock screen with widgets — already available on the home screen — by holding down . Widgets are small icons that users can click to quickly access tools such as the weather app.

The new lock screen allows for more customization of the font and color of the time and date. It also lets users shuffle their background photos or choose animated backgrounds throughout the day.

People are starting to make their way to their seats for the keynote. It’s pre-recorded, so there are lots of big screens for anyone to tune into. And I like that there is a shaded area.

This is what you can expect

Apple’s annual developer conference, WWDC, is all about catering for software developers. They are the people who build apps for the Mac, iPhone, iPad, Watch and TV. This is usually when Apple unveils new tools for them, and major new updates for the iPhone, iPad, and other platforms. Apple is reportedly gearing up to announce a major new iPad software update that will add better multitasking so you can run more apps side by side at the same time. And the iPhone is expected to get new lock screen updates. It can also announce new MacBook Airs. However, unlike the iPhone events in September, WWDC tends to focus more on software than hardware. And usually, the software announced at WWDC will be available to everyone sometime in the fall.

Homecoming for Apple employees after two years of remote work

WWDC gathers Apple developers and prints for the first time in two years. But the event is also a homecoming for many Apple employees who have been working remotely for the past two years because of the pandemic. Some employees meet their teammates in person for the first time, such as those who have traveled from other major Apple offices, such as the Austin, Texas branch. Apple began requiring company employees to return to the office earlier this year. – How Leswing

Apple could also announce new products today

The Apple Store website is down, suggesting Apple may also be announcing new products at the WWDC 2022 event. It still seems a bit early to announce the augmented reality headset, so I’m betting on some new Macs of sorts. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman suggested last weekend that Apple may be ready to announce a refreshed MacBook Air. It will reportedly include MagSafe charging, the latest Apple processor and new colors.

Everyone is wondering what Apple’s headset is

Apple has been working on a headset for years. Reports have suggested it could be launched in 2022 or 2023. It’s the only product that’s in the public eye right now, as it would be an entirely new product area for Apple. It might make sense for CEO Tim Cook and the team to announce the software for the headset, reportedly dubbed realityOS, since this is a developer-focused event with people who would build the apps for the device. Recently, however, Bloomberg suggested that maybe we shouldn’t take a look. Still, we can get hints about what Apple is up to. The company may build some tools into existing software to enable developers to create virtual or augmented reality versions of their existing applications. When that happens, we know the headset can’t be far away. Or maybe we’ll be surprised and get a teaser or full announcement.

We are live from Cupertino for the first time since the start of the pandemic

We’ll be live from WWDC 2022

We are live from the Worldwide Developers Conference for the first time since the start of the pandemic. Apple invited some media and developers to its headquarters in Cupertino, California, to watch the keynote. But there are a few differences from previous years. First, we’re at corporate headquarters rather than the San Jose Convention Center where Apple held the event several years prior to the pandemic.

And the keynote isn’t live like it used to be. Instead, we’re looking at a pre-recorded version, just like anyone tuning in at home. Still, it shows that major tech events are starting to return to some version of normal. Google’s developer conference in May was also held in person, but was not accessible to much press.
