Throughout the year there are many product releases and tech conventions. If you spot a new event coming up please post here. For any of the big ones we can make a dedicated thread so we can discuss product announcements as they’re made.
Some key events and approximate dates:
January: Consumer Electronics Show (CES) February: Mobile world congress (MWC) March/April: Apple’s random new stuff Spring event (Mac Studio, iPad Air, iPhone SE) May: Microsoft Build developer conference June: Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (iOS, MacOS) September: Apple’s Fall event (iPhones, iPads, Apple Watch), Microsoft’s Surface event October: Apple Macbook event, last time including audio products
Gotta say, I like how it looks. But since it’s Google I’d feel like I was wearing one of those criminal parole monitor bands, being watched all the time. Not something I watch; something that watches me.
Apple is expected to showcase iOS 16, iPadOS 16, watchOS 9, tvOS 16 and the next version of macOS during the conference. The company might also talk about its upcoming M2 chips that it’s reportedly testing on at least nine new Mac models.
I don’t think they’ve let anyone see the real thing, or those people are under NDA. If it has huge bezels then it won’t look nearly as good. I’m not sure I’d say that I like it better than the Apple Watch but I certainly like it a lot better than the Samsung watch.
MacRumors did a decent wrap up of past WWDC hardware announcements. Except for the much-delayed Mac Pro in 2019 they were all new products that developers might need to get up to speed on. The last one being the Apple Silicon Transition Mac Mini for developers. People hoping for an iPad or MacBook product refresh to M2 will almost certainly be disappointed. But I guess just because it hasn’t happened before doesn’t mean it can’t happen. I mean, it’s a magical event, right?
