WWDC 2018: Will there be any new hardware reveals?

According to the new report, Apple will address recent concerns over device addiction with Digital Health, a collection of settings and usage monitoring tools that will help users reduce device and specific app usage.

If so, Apple might focus instead on software features in the upcoming iOS 12, which rumors say will give iPhones the ability to unlock doors using NFC, among other things.

Bloomberg notes that Apple's long-promised parental controls will likely be tied into iOS 12's Digital Health feature, too.

Apple refreshed the MacBook and MacBook Pro while introducing the 10.5-inch iPad Pro and second-gen 12.9 iPad Pro at its developer conference in 2017, but Bloomberg's Mark Gurman expects Apple to save this year's revisions for later in the year.

Numerous region's First Nations and Métis groups already own companies involved in the oilsands. On November 29, 2016, the Government of Canada granted approval for the project.

"We need to get finer-grain language and start to understand that an iPhone is just a refrigerator, it's not the addiction". Google Photos may require the power of the cloud to do its image crunching, but it's also generally viewed as more effective at it than Apple's Photos app is.

The Beta versions of iOS 12 will be available for developers and people on the Apple Beta Software Program. There's no additional details about the price and design of the phone, but if rumours are to believed, it will have an iPhone X like notch without the 3D facial recognition feature. What do you expect Apple to announce during the keynote? While the company debuted new iMacs, iPads, and the HomePod at last year's keynote, this event will likely focus on improvements to the company's software. This is according to a Bloomberg report, which suggests that this might be motivated by the fact that iOS has received a lot more attention and iteration from Apple than MacOS.

Apple is rivaling Google in the race to bring software developers in its platform by releasing AR tools such as this. However, In this year's WWDC, we might not these highlights and Apple might save their act later in the coming months. We'd like to see a feature similar to Google's Multiple Actions - where you're able to make different requests at once. However, these won't be ready until later this year. The app selection on the product remains limited, but it's important for Apple to keep working on new features for a device that's the centerpiece of its living-room strategy so far. Tech experts say that with a $250 price tag, Apple will struggle to compete directly with other rivals out there.
