Apple may unveil latest software updates at annual conference

Apple might be working to cure the worst tech addiction of all: Your iPhone

WWDC 2018 starts today, June 4 and will continue till June 8, and keynote will be live streamed for those who want to watch all the announcements online.

Apple will reveal what is next for the software that powers the iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch later on Monday.

This year, the company will highlight the opposite: using gadgets less.

The digital wellbeing movement has gone into overdrive in recent months. But what devices will it work with outside of Apple's ecosystem? Suffice it to say, WWDC 2018 appears to be a software-centric affair as the company will likely not introduce any new iPads or MacBook updates. Another mode allows objects to be dropped into an area and virtually remain in place. The features will be a prelude of what's to come from an Apple AR headset planned for as early as 2020.

Apple's new wireless charging mat AirPower, which was first announced alongside the iPhone 8 and iPhone X past year and has been slated for release in 2018, could also make an appearance.

Russian journalist reported dead turns up at news conference
His murder follows the earlier death of Ukranian-Belarussian journalist Pavel Sheremet by vehicle bomb in central Kiev in 2016. Babchenko fled Russian Federation for Prague before settling in Kiev past year following repeated threats against his family.

Rumours suggest that there could be an integration between Mac and iOS apps.

From the long-awaited Universal Apps for MacOS, to the release of AirPower, here's everything you need to know about what could happen at tomorrow's Worldwide Developers Conference.

According to a report from Axios, the next major iOS update is said to focus on improving reliability and performance.

The iOS App Store has been a huge money maker for Apple, and for its developers.

Mac hardware upgrades have been a key talking point at past WWDCs.

Bethesda Teases an Upcoming Fallout Announcement
According to the fan encyclopedia at Fallout Wikia, Vault 76 was meant to open just 20 years after a 2077 nuclear conflict. And given Bethesda's track record, there's a strong chance that we'll be playing this game much sooner than we think.

Less likely but not utterly impossible is the announcement of new Mac computers.

Apple also may introduce new ways to help people manage their health and assist apps in the use of augmented reality - the blending of digital images and information with a physical setting through the camera. "Despite Siri's relative adoption among Apple consumers and more recently with Apple Business Chat, more brands plan to invest in Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant than in Apple's 'Siri, '" said Thomas Husson, Vice President, Principal Analyst serving chief marketing officers at Forrester. So it will be no surprise if this year is another "hardware-less" WWDC.

Apple is expected to launch new versions for both its Apple Watch and Apple TV operating systems at WWDC, but perhaps reflective of their much smaller user bases, there's not a lot confirmed in terms of what the versions may include. It could also make for interesting experiences in art installations and in classrooms.

According to the Wall Street Journal, since last September when iOS 11 was rolled out, there have been 14 software updates from Apple that fixed 67 problems with the operating system. More significant changes will take time. In April, it poached a top Google executive to lead its machine learning and AI efforts.
