What announcements to expect from Apple’s WWDC 2024 (and how to watch it live)

The company, owner of the iPhone and Macbooks, is preparing a series of updates, with artificial intelligence being the central axis of the expected changes. Here we tell you what time and how to follow this major event in the technological world live.

Apple will celebrate June 10 its Worldwide Developers Conference – known as WWDC for its acronym in English–, which will continue for four days with exhibitions at the technology company’s headquarters in Cupertino, California.

Expectations are high for the first day, when Apple CEO Tim Cook will enter the stage, who will present this year’s new features, in its different environments such as iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, among others.

As has been the case with recent technological events, Artificial intelligence is expected to occupy much of the news and how the partnership with OpenAI – owner of ChatGPT – improves its products.

How to watch WWDC 2024 live

The WWDC 2024 kickoff presentation can be seen live from Apple’s official website and also for his channel on YouTube whose event is already scheduled.

The WWDC 2024 calendars by country are:

  • 10 hours. (California, United States)
  • 11:00. (Mexico)
  • 12 hours. (Peru, Colombia, Ecuador)
  • 13 hours. (Chile, Venezuela, Paraguay)
  • 2 p.m. (Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil)
  • 19 hours. (Spain)

As for the duration, it is estimated at almost two hours according to the trend of recent editions.

What announcements to expect from WWDC 2024

As we mentioned above, AI will be Apple’s biggest novelty this year and the new iOS 18 You will greatly benefit from the new functions that this technology will offer.

With this, it is expected that iPhone users will be able to perform smarter tasks, such as a Siri capable of holding more human conversations , in the same way that ChatGPT-4o already allows. Thus, Apple has teamed up with OpenAI, a key partner since –unlike Google –, in Cupertino, there have been no major advances in conversational chats and other generative AI functions.

In this process of searching for a partner with artificial intelligence, Apple began negotiations with Google’s Gemini team, but was ultimately abandoned in favor of OpenIA, reported Bloomberg .

With this, it was argued that Apple users will be able to edit their photos via text and voice requests as well as creating smart summaries in Safari, personalized emojis based on a user’s request, and coding features, among others.

A notable aspect is ultimately the arrival of native support in iOS 18 for RCS technology , successor to SMS and MMS, whose functionality will avoid the differentiation of conversations between Android and iOS users, allowing reactions to messages, multimedia sharing and much more. Something to Google claims for years.

iPhone customization will become more powerful, with more color changing options and option to place icons and widgets anywhere on the screen following a personalization trend that began years ago in the quest to make the phone more unique for each user.

For iPad owners, expect much of what’s coming to iOS 18 to also come to iPadOS 18. By the way, the arrival of the official calculation application to the Apple tablet is the biggest and most curious spoiler before WWDC 2024.

The Apple Vision Pro awaits news at WWDC 2024.

Apple’s mixed reality glasses (augmented and virtual), the Vision Pro, will arrive a year after their release and this new step brings visionOS 2, which will have improvements such as: more native applications, subtitles to the screen, reorganization of applications in view, among others.

watchOS 11 will arrive for watches, tvOS 18 for TVs and macOS 15 for Macs. For all this, relatively minor news is expected, given the wave of new functions that will arrive on iOS and that will be shared in one way or another with these environments.

Of course, everything mentioned here is part of rumors and leaks, so it will be this Monday, June 10, when we will specifically have all the news that Apple engineers and developers have prepared.

And new equipment? For the moment, no new devices should be presented that day, the event being focused on the evolution of the operating systems of each of its devices, already present on the market.
