For many regions of the planet, things are not looking exactly as planned. The WWDC 2020 event (aka the Worldwide Developers Conference 2020) is the next of Apple’s annual software-focused show. The Cupertino-based tech giant is expected to present its iOS 14 operating system, and hopefully, some hardware pieces as well, like the iPhone 9 and a new iPad Pro.
But because of the new coronavirus outbreak, Apple is forced to move its event into the online realm so that the risk of contamination will be drastically reduced.
Scheduled for June
With the United States having over 55,000 people infected with the COVID-19 disease, it’s absolutely normal and necessary that tech events are getting canceled or moved into the online realm. Mark Gurman from Apple made the announcement on Twitter that the WWDC 2020 event will be held online.
We can expect from Apple’s upcoming event that plenty of exciting tech stuff will be presented, including updates for iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS, and who knows what else.
What’s up with iOS 14?
The iOS 14 will come with new features and upgrades for the iPhones and iPads, and we can’t be otherwise than very excited about it. Changes to the home screens of iPhones will be applied, including a new list view. Instead of just the old design with a grid of app icons, there will be a new page unfolding a top-to-bottom scrolling list.
Phil Schiller, who is Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, stated the following:
“The current health situation has required that we create a new WWDC 2020 format that delivers a full program with an online keynote and sessions, offering a great learning experience for our entire developer community, all around the world. We will be sharing all of the details in the weeks ahead.”
With Apple’s WWDC 2020 approaching fast, new technological heights are looming at the same speed.
