iOS 17 at Apple Event WWDC 2023

Redesigned Home Screen and Widgets

One of the standout features of iOS 17 was the redesigned home screen and widgets. Apple focused on giving users more flexibility and customization options, allowing them to personalize their device’s appearance and layout. With iOS 17, users could create app stacks, enabling them to organize and access their favorite applications more conveniently. Widgets were also made more interactive, providing users with at-a-glance information and quick actions without needing to open the respective apps.

Enhanced Multitasking Capabilities

iOS 17 took multitasking to new heights, making it easier for users to switch between apps seamlessly and effortlessly. The new App Switcher interface allowed users to see previews of their recently used apps and switch between them with a simple swipe gesture. Additionally, iOS 17 introduced enhanced Split View and Slide Over functionalities, enabling users to run multiple apps simultaneously and improve productivity on their devices.

Advanced Privacy Features

Privacy has always been a top priority for Apple, and iOS 17 further reinforced this commitment by introducing advanced privacy features. The new Privacy Dashboard provided users with a comprehensive overview of how their data was being accessed by installed applications. Users gained more control over their data by being able to grant temporary access to sensitive information, such as location or photos. Additionally, iOS 17 offered improved tracking prevention and enhanced security measures to protect user data from unauthorized access.

iPadOS 17

Apple will announce iPadOS 17 at WWDC this year. As it stands right now, rumors on what to expect from iPadOS 17 are pretty light.

As this a concrete rumor, coming from Bloomberg, which reports that iPadOS 17 will include the Health app. This would mark the first time that Apple has expanded the Health app beyond the iPhone.

There are a handful of other features that seem plausible for iPadOS 17 this year. Most notably, we’d expect Apple to bring the Lock Screen customization options, which first came to the iPhone as part of iOS 16, to the iPad this year. We also might see iOS 17’s Journaling app come to the iPad with iPadOS 17.

macOS 14

Similar to iPadOS 17, there aren’t many rumors at all about what’s to come as part of macOS 14 this year. The update will likely include some of the new features from iOS 17.

watchOS 10

Apple will announce watchOS 10 for Apple Watch. This is expected to be a major update with an all-new user interface for Apple Watch. According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, watchOS 10 will be a “fairly extensive upgrade” focused on “notable changes to the user interface.”

The key to this new design will be a newfound focus on widgets. watchOS 10 will reportedly use widgets as a “central part” of the Apple Watch’s software experience. According to the rumors, the new design will be similar to “widget stacks,” a feature on iPhone and iPad that allows users to stack multiple widgets on top of each other and scroll through them.

15-inch MacBook Air

Apple is expected to introduce a new 15-inch MacBook Air. Currently, the MacBook Air is only available in one screen size option at 13.6 inches, and this would mark the first time Apple has offered a bigger-screen version of its most popular laptop.

According to Bloomberg, the 15-inch MacBook Air has a screen resolution identical to the 14-inch MacBook Pro. This means the display would be slightly less sharp than the 14-inch MacBook Pro since the same resolution is being stretched to 15 inches.

In terms of performance, the 15-inch MacBook Air is expected to use Apple’s M2 processor and offer performance “on par” with the current crop of M2-powered Macs.

Apple Reality Pro and xrOS

Last but certainly not least, all signs point to Apple introducing its long-awaited Reality Pro headset at WWDC 2023. This headset will offer both mixed reality and augmented reality capabilities and feature ultra-high-end specifications and hardware.

Apple’s first Reality Pro headset is expected to be an ultra-premium product priced at around $3,000. It will feature top-of-the-line specifications, including an “innovative three-display configuration” with two 4K Micro-LED panels. Apple is also currently working on a more affordable headset product, but it’s not expected to be ready for mass production until at least 2025.

The headset will reportedly be powered by xrOS, which reportedly stands for “extended reality” within Apple. The software platform will support a wide range of features, including FaceTime, content consumption, gaming, the ability to build virtual worlds and rooms, and much more.

event include the annual software updates for Apple’s existing updates, but it will also introduce Apple’s first new software platform since the Apple Watch in 2014.
