How to watch Apple's WWDC 2020 event

Apple will also want to push more Augmented Reality (AR) features for making use of the newly-introduced LiDAR scanner on the iPad Pro, which is also rumoured to be the fourth sensor on the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max.

As far as the new version of macOS is concerned, there is not much information available at the moment. As for the devices sold in the last 4 years, the rate is even higher.

If past WWDC events are anything to go off of, we'll likely see the next iterations of Apple's many operating systems. iOS/iPad OS 14, macOS 10.16, tvOS 14, and watchOS 7 are all next on the update cycle, and each will have its own new features to cover during the online presentation.

WWDC is primarily a software event, where Tim Cook and other executives reveal new versions of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, WatchOS that run on iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple watch.

As per figures on the Apple developer webpage, 92% of iPhones introduced in the last four years are running on iOS 13. With 1.5 billion active devices, the iOS is central to Apple's success and it is time for the iPhone maker to make big ticket changes.

The 2020 Apple Worldwide Developers Conference is starting tomorrow and while we can expect a lot of software-centric announcements, the same can apparently not be said about hardware.

Multi-tasking on iPhone: Multi-tasking is pretty robust on iPad, but 91mobiles.com reports that Apple will bring some of that to iPhone with iOS 14. A Hey.com email controversy and antitrust investigations in the European Union made for some very poor Apple PR. According to the latest whispers, Apple could finally allow iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 users to change some default apps, including switching Apple Maps to Google Maps and Apple's Music app to Spotify. "The update will also include upgradation in 'Find My app" with sound and vibration cues to help users find their lost Apple devices. Apple usually uses WWDC to talk about software.

Apple may have telegraphed this move in 2019. According to Weinbach, he received a mail stating that Apple will rename iOS to iPhoneOS.
