This post was originally published May 30, 2019 and has been updated with a link to WWDC19 what app developers need to know.
WWDC19 will take place June 3 – June 7, 2019 and the mobile app performance team here at Kumulos can’t wait! So, what do you think we can expect from #WWDC19?
Each year, we announce the key points and how WWDC announcements affect mobile app development agencies. This year is no exception. Why not take a look at WWDC19 what app developers need to know and see how accurate these predictions were?
Each year, Apple holds the Worldwide Developers Conference near its campus in California. It gives thousands of global developers a chance to meet up with Apple engineers. Moreover, they can attend workshops and software development sessions.
The keynote from Apple is always much anticipated. Major announcements from Apple not only set the stage for the rest of the week but set the stage for many mobile app trends.
What to expect at WWDC19
This year, we’re definitely expecting to see new versions of iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS.
Apple will introduce iOS 13, the next-generation version of iOS. The update is set to include some pretty useful new features like Dark Mode which is finally coming in iOS 13, and other features like a new sleep mode that mutes incoming notifications and darkens the lock screen.
The next-generation version of macOS, macOS 10.15, will be unveiled at WWDC. We’ve heard that macOS 10.15 could be renamed macOS Mammoth, with other rumoured options including macOS Monterey, macOS Rincon, and macOS Skyline. What will it be?
OTHER SOFTWARE RELEASES
Along with iOS 13 and macOS 10.15, Apple will unveil new versions of tvOS and watchOS. tvOS 13 is expected to be a minor update, but watchOS 6 will bring some exciting new features to the Apple Watch. App developers will need to take note!
For example, in watchOS 6, Apple has several major features planned that will overhaul the watchOS operating system. The Apple Watch is gaining its own App Store, so users can download apps right from their wrists for the first time. Now that’s cool!
We’ve heard rumours to suggest that Apple is considering previewing the redesigned Mac Pro that’s in the works at WWDC. Will we see it?
