Every year rumors about different Apple products swirl like crazy before the WWDC, but we won’t know what is actually coming until the conference itself begins. Hopefully they’ll jump right into the good stuff!
In case you’re wondering what some of the rumored product and software updates will be, have no fear! Here’s a quick rundown, as originally reported by The Verge.
First and foremost, rumor has it that Siri is getting a major promotion. Not only is the voice-activated app supposed to launch on Mac desktops and laptops, but there is a chance it will also be opened up to interact with third-party apps. This will be a huge competitor to Amazon’s Alexa, who has been working with third-party apps since July 2015.
Secondly, it’s rumored that Apple Music will be getting a total revamp. This goes hand-in-hand with their new Student Membership program, as well as rumors that the “Connect” section might be eradicated due to limited success.
Some other potential updates during the WWDC will be: Apple Pay working on the web and through iMessage for person-to-person payments, updates to iOS and OS X, which make sense given the Siri and Apple Music revamps. There could also be updates to tvOS and watchOS, though there are no rumblings yet on exactly what those updates will be. Hmm!
