Apple WWDC19: What’s in store for iOS macOS, watchOS, and tvOS

Apple WWDC19: What’s in store for iOS macOS, watchOS, and tvOS

We’re teetering on the edge of an embarrassment of Apple riches. The company’s March event is just over a week away, but with this week’s official announcement of the 2019 Worldwide Developers Conference, many eyes are already fixed on that point, three months from now.

Whatever comes our way in March, it will almost certainly pale in comparison to WWDC, which is probably the most significant event in Apple’s calendar. Yes, the September launch of new iPhones and attendant devices may get more attention, but WWDC is where the company sets its agenda for the year—or years—to come.

Though it’s still a few months away, it’s never too early to start thinking about where Apple may be looking to focus the priorities of its many and varied platforms.

iOS 13

The crown jewel of Apple’s platforms is, of course, iOS 13. But as per usual, rumors have been sparse. Unlike in hardware, where the company has had an ongoing challenge forestalling leaks from its increasingly voluminous supply chain, software has tended to be a much better kept secret.

That said, leaks and whispers do find their way into the wild. Reports have, for example, suggested that a systemwide dark mode is in the works, echoing a change added in macOS Mojave last year, and some reading the tea leaves of Apple’s WWDC 2019 announcement image have proclaimed it further proof that such a change is coming.

Could iOS 13 introduce a bevy of new iPad-specific features?

When trying to determine what Apple might do this year, you can do worse than look at some of the things that seemed to fall by the wayside in the previous year. iOS 12, for example, was woefully short on iPad-specific changes, and there has been plenty of talk that iOS 13 might thus see a more substantive series of updates to the tablet’s OS, possibly including improved multitasking features. That remains one place the Mac maintains a not insignificant advantage over the iPad, and a rethinking of how the system works could help broaden the iPad’s appeal among power users even further. (Similarly, improvements to the Files app, which have also been bandied about as a potential update.)

In perhaps the most tantalizing rumor, there have been suggestions that Apple might finally revamp the iOS home screen, which could mark one of the biggest changes to ever hit the platform, and set the look for the company’s mobile devices for years to come.

macOS 10.15

If iOS rumors are sparse, macOS rumors are in even shorter supply. Nearly all of them seem to focus on something we already know is coming: the ability to run iOS apps on the Mac platform. In Mojave, Apple brought several iOS apps—News, Home, Voice Memos, and Stocks (yay)—to the Mac platform, albeit as fairly rudimentary proofs-of-concept.
